New paper on Circulating DNA cf DNA  in Diagnosing Thyroid Nodules.

My recent paper with Mark Lupo,

Glenn Braunstein et al  showed that cfDNA was unable to be of

use in the diagnosis or thyroid cancer in thyroid nodules. FNA and molecular markers direct6 from the nodules were not improved by circulation cfDNA measurements. There were no

differences in cfDNA from benign or cancer nodules.One KRAS G12V mutation from a stage IVA papillary carcinoma. 2/43 benign nodules patients had cfDNA detected.\

A larger panel with proteomics may be of value.
