We hypothesized the presence of T-lymphocytes citotoxicity against a common antigen between thyroid and BC cells.Aim: To evaluate the possible expression of TPO gene in BC.Materials: Frozen tissue specimens: 8 BC, 5 peri-tumoral breast tissues (PT), 3 pancreatic adenocarcinoma (P), 2 kidney cancers (K) an...
