Fine needle aspiration biopsy of a thyroid nodule: a comparison of diagnostic performance of experienced and inexperienced physicians

Gursoy Alptekin , Anil Cuneyd , Erismis Betul

Objectives: Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (US-FNAC) technique has the advantage of obtaining tissue for cytological examination. The diagnostic yield may depend on factors related to both technical aspects and the lesions sampled. However, the variability between experienced and inexperienced physicians in obtaining adequate cytological sample has not been specifically studied previously. The aim of the study was to determine whether there is a difference in ...

Introduction: Tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) belongs to TNF family and is released from inflammatory cells. It has been reported that TWEAK has several biological actions ranging from cell proliferation to stimulation of apoptosis. In in vitro studies, it was reported that TWEAK has alleviating effect on insulin resistance in hepatocytes. TWEAK decreases insulin resistance induced by TNF-a through activation of phosphatase 2A pathway in a...
