Recommedition for Apllication and Determination Tumor Markers of Neuroendocrine System

Preporuke Za Primenu I Određivanje Tumorskih Markera Kod Neoplazmi Neuroendokrinog Sistema

Neuroendokrini tumori vode poreklo iz neuroendokrinih ćelija, koji pod uslovima specifične stimulacije sekretuju hormone, regulišući niz različitih funkcija u organizmu. U radu je opisana grupa neuroendokrinih tumora koja se sastoji od: karcinoida endokrinih tumora pankreasa, neuroblastoma, medularnog karcinoma tiroidee i feohromocitoma. Biće diskutovani tumori koji potiču iz endokrinih žlezda, kao i oni koji vode poreklo iz takozvanog »difuznog« neuroendokrinog ćelijskog sistema gastrointestinalnog trakta. Radi se o najvećem endokrinom organu u organizmu. Oko 50 različitih neuroendokrinih ćelijskih tipova gastrointestinalnog trakta je indentifikovano. Važan dijagnostički segment u tretmanu ovih tumora, je određivanje biogenih amina i peptida, čija je aktivnost izmenjena kod pojave neoplazmi. Širok je spektar kliničkih simptoma kod pojave ove vrste tumora, a svi su posledica sposobnosti tumora da sekretuju povećane količine peptinih hormona i biogenih amina. Glavni ciljevi ovog teksta su procena važnosti ove grupe tumorskih markera, kao i predlozi za njihovo koriŠćenje u našim uslovima.

Variants in mitochondrial tRNA gene may not be associated with thyroid carcinoma

Introduction With an incidence of 2.0%, thyroid carcinoma is the most common form of endocrine system malignancy [ 1 , 2 ]. Thyroid carcinomas are histologically classified as papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC), anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) and medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), accounting for approximately 80.0, 15.0, 2.0 and 4.0% of all thyroid malignancies, respectively [ 3 ]. Decreased survival in patients with oncocytic carcinomas may be due to reduced competence in iodine uptake by the tumor cells, resulting in
