Eric J. Sherman, MD, highlights several drugs that are being used to treat RET-positive thyroid cancer.
Survivors of thyroid cancer had a higher risk of unemployment at 2 years post-diagnosis and decreased income at both 2 and 4 years, according to the results of a study.
Use of transcriptional data taken from the FNA of thyroid nodules could help in predicting recurrence post surgery in certain thyroid cancer patients.
Two subgroup analyses of the SELECT trial could help clarify which differentiated thyroid carcinoma patients will benefit most from lenvatinib.
First-line lenvatinib may improve progression-free survival in patients with 131I-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer with no prior history of VEGF therapy.
Adding everolimus to sorafenib at the time of progression of advanced radio-iodine refractory differentiated thyroid carcinoma was tolerable and active.
In this video, Steven I. Sherman, MD, discusses the final overall survival analysis of the EXAM study, a randomized, placebo-controlled phase III trial of cabozantinib in medullary thyroid carcinoma patients.
Cabozantinib failed to significantly increase overall survival compared with placebo in patients with medullary thyroid carcinoma, according to the EXAM study.
Tumor growth rate analysis may be a valuable efficacy parameter to consider in patients with sorafenib-treated, radioiodine-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer.
