Objectives: Although, almost all patients with inherited medullary thyroid carcinomas (MTC) harboured RET proto-oncogene mutation, in patients with sporadic MTC, mutations in RET are detected only in half of cases. Thus still unknown genetic causes are responsible for half of sporadic MTC and it is necessary to search for another mutations.Methods: DNAs from fresh frozen thyroid tissues of 27 sporadic MTC were extracted. The next-genera...

Introduction: Thyroid carcinomas are the most often endocrine malignancy and their incidence is still growing. Thus, the finding of genetic predispositions to the thyroid cancer is desired. One of the genetic causes can be risk variants of tumor suppressor genes in patients. Our goal was to determine the influence of polymorphisms Val109Gly (T/G) in gene CDKN1B encoding protein p27/Kip1 and Arg72Pro (C/G) in gene TP53 encoding protein p53 on the development of thyroid cancer. ...
