AimTo assess the relative expression of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1 gene (TIMP1) and chitinase-3-like protein 1 gene (CHI3L1) in fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) washouts and the serum levels of their protein products (TIMP-1 and chitinase-3-like protein 1 also known as YKL-40) in patients with histologically confirmed papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) and with benign nodules. Further, we evaluated the correlation between the gene expression...
