Molecular Test Promising for Mutations in Thyroid Nodules

LOS ANGELES -- The ThyroSeq v3 Genomic Classifier was able to effectively classify thyroid nodules with samples collected through fine needle aspiration (FNA), researchers reported here.

In an analysis of 33 cytology smears from 14 thyroid nodules collected through FNA samples that had indeterminate cytology, DNA analysis was obtained in 93% of samples, while RNA results were informative in 79% of cases for accurate detection of mutations, according to Lindsey Tolino, MBA, of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania, and colleagues.
