A number of studies have investigated the influence of TITF1 and TITF2 genetic variants on thyroid carcinogenesis, but their associations remain unclear due to the controversial results. The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that TITF1 and TITF2 variants modulate thyroid cancer susceptibility. Eligible studies were identified through online searches supplemented by manual search. Either the DerSimonian and Laird method or the Mantel–Haenszel method was used to estimate the risk… CONTINUE READING
