Introduction: The total energy expenditure in pregnancy is increased largely due to elevated basal metabolic rate (BMR) during pregnancy.

Introduction: BRAF V600E substitution is one of the most common mutation in PTC in different populations, and is associated with poor prognosis of the classical variant of PTC (CVPTC) such as extrathyroidal expansion, vascular invasion, lymph node metastasis and recurrence of the disease. The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of BRAF V600E mutation in subcell- types of the PTCs in Turkish population.Materials and methods: A total of 19...
