Title:
Galectin-3 targeting in thyroid orthotopic tumors opens new ways to characterize thyroid cancer. 
Abstract:
Preoperative characterization of thyroid nodules is challenging since thyroid scintigraphy fails to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions. Galectin-3 is widely expressed in the majority of well-differentiated thyroid carcinomas and in a large fraction of undifferentiated thyroid cancer types but not in normal thyrocytes and benign thyroid lesions. Herein, we aimed to validate galectin-3 targeting in thyroid orthotopic tumors otherwise not visible with conventional imaging. Papillary...    »
