What are the signs of thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic?

The signs are related to a malignant disease and the risk of death due to the malignancy will be increased. The most relevant signs are painless thyroid nodules, palpitation and/or symptoms caused by the malignancy. The presence of both signs means a lethal disease. The prognosis in regards to malignancy is related to size and the presence of malignant cells in the tissue (metastatic disease). A complete surgical thyroidectomy is indicated if a single nodule is found; an operation and a total thyroidectomy in cases of many nodules, even when the thyroid is not palpable (so-called Nodular Thyroid Thyrotoxicosis) seems reasonable for the same indication.

What is thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic?

Thyroid cancer has historically been considered to be one of the ten most common cancer types, but, recent advances, have indicated it has a much more indomitable outlook than previously thought. Patients are typically diagnosed at an advanced stage of the disease with poor survival. The disease occurs in virtually every age group, and has a 10-year survival rate of approximately 80 per cent. The greatest number of cases of thyroid cancer occur in the second decade of life when the disease is typically diagnosed before any life-threatening complication has occurred. Patients treated for thyroid cancer generally exhibit more than good responses, i.e., a great improvement in the level of hormone production.

What causes thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic?

Thyroid carcinoma is probably caused by a combination of genetic predisposition, environmental carcinogens, an infectious or autoimmune process, or the effects of radiation, iodine on the thyroid.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Can thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic be cured?

Patients with anaplastic thyroid carcinoma can have a prolonged survival with appropriate treatment, but many cases will relapse and/or metastasize within five years, as with any thyroid cancer.

How many people get thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic a year in the United States?

An average of 5 new cases of thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic a year are reported from the National Cancer Institute hospital case registry based in the United States. This accounts for 2.3% of thyroid carcinoma cases reported from cancer registry data from 1973 to 1978. The American Cancer Society reported that between 1973 and 1978, a total of 5,072 cases of anaplastic thyroid carcinoma were reported from the National Cancer Institute. Of these cases, a minimum of 558 (10.9%) were diagnosed in blacks and 1,527 (27.4%) were diagnosed in whites. In the black group, there was a significantly higher percentage of males diagnosed (54.8%) than females (45.1%).

How does mln0128 work?

Mn 0128 can induce a specific antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity against H1299 cells, thus generating a potent antimetastasis activity in vivo. Inclusion of Mn 0128 in future trials can be justified. However, further studies are needed to verify its use in clinical oncology. Such studies would take in consideration the dose-response relationship.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic?

New treatment technologies have progressed quickly in comparison to the past. The current therapeutic options for anaplastic thyroid carcinoma patients are not as successful as we would expect. There have been few successful treatment options for anaplastic thyroid carcinoma patients except for chemotherapy. Because of the high level of uncertainty and uncertainty about treatment outcomes, we must focus on the long-term survival. New diagnostic methods and therapeutic options are needed.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Is mln0128 typically used in combination with any other treatments?

The combination of Mln0128 with other treatments is uncommon. Future work will attempt to determine the efficacy of Mln0128 in combination with other treatment options.

What is the latest research for thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic?

Most clinical trials are Phase III. There have been many studies that used taxanes for advanced thyroid carcinoma. However, there is still no evidence to have an advantage at present. In general, some clinical studies showed that taxanes should be used in adjuvant and palliative therapy instead of curative treatment. At last, for many patients with anaplastic thyroid carcinomas, and some of them prefer to receive chemotherapy and taxanes in adjuvant chemotherapy.\n
