Radioactive Iodine (Radioiodine) Therapy for Thyroid Cancer

2021-11-19  Radioactive iodine therapy helps people live longer if they have papillary or follicular thyroid cancer (differentiated thyroid cancer) that has spread to the neck or other body parts, and it is now standard practice in such cases. But the benefits of RAI therapy are less clear for people with small cancers of the thyroid gland that do not seem ...

Thyroid Cancer Iodine - Dr. Sircus

2011-9-20  Radioactive iodine absorbed by the thyroid can injure the gland. There was a large increase in the proportion of thyroid cancer patients receiving radioactive iodine between 1990 and 2008 even though radioactive iodine is a cause of thyroid cancer. Between 1990 and 2008, the percentage of patients treated with radioactive iodine climbed from 40 ...

Iodine and cancer - PubMed

Thyroid carcinomas are the most frequent endocrine malignancies. Among thyroid carcinomas the most frequent types are the differentiated forms (follicular, papillary or mixed papillary-follicular), whereas anaplastic thyroid carcinoma and medullary thyroid carcinomas are rare. Animal experiments hav

Iodine and Thyroid Cancer Risk among Women in a ...

2001-9-1  Research on the relationship between iodine exposure and thyroid cancer risk is limited, and the findings are inconclusive. In most studies, fish/shellfish consumption has been used as a proxy measure of iodine exposure. The present study extends this research by quantifying dietary iodine exposure as well as incorporating a biomarker of long-term (1 year) exposure, i.e. , from toenail

Consequences of excess iodine

2021-10-24  Iodine supplementation also affects other aspects of thyroid health. For example, high iodine intake seems to increase the prevalence of autoimmune thyroiditis in the Bio Breeding/Worcester rat model and in humans. 26,27 The number of reported cases of thyroid cancer, particularly papillary thyroid cancer, has also increased following iodine ...

Novel Therapeutics in Radioactive Iodine-Resistant Thyroid ...

2021-7-15  Iodine-resistant cancers account for the vast majority of thyroid related mortality and, until recently, there were limited therapeutic options. However, over the last decade our understanding of the molecular foundation of thyroid function and carcinogenesis has driven the development of many novel therapeutics. These include FDA approved tyrosine kinase inhibitors and small molecular ...

2021-10-15  Some thyroid cancer cells also share the same ability as normal thyroid cells to take up iodine from the bloodstream. These are referred to as “iodine-avid”. If your cancer cells are able to do this, then I-131 may also destroy microscopic residual thyroid cancer cells or be used as a treatment for thyroid cancer that has spread to lymph ...

Association between Iodine Intake, Thyroid Function, and ...

Background: This study aimed to assess the effects of iodine intake, thyroid function, and their combined effect on the risk of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) and papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC). Methods: A case-control study was conducted including 500 community-based controls who had undergone a health check-up, and 446 overall PTC cases (209 PTC and 237 PTMC) from the Thyroid

High iodine can alter the proliferative activity of thyroid cancer cells, but the underlying mechanism has not been fully elucidated. Here, the role of high iodine in the proliferation of thyroid cancer cells was studied. In this study, we demonstrated that high iodine induced the proliferation of BCPAP and 8305C cells via accelerating cell cycle progression.
