Özet

Background/aim: A number of tumor markers detected in the serum or pathological specimens using immunohistochemical methods are used for early detection of malignancies and postoperative follow-up. Human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) is a nonclassic HLA class I molecule. Recent studies suggested a relationship between HLA-G positivity and the stage or the phenotype of the malignancy. In this study, the relationship between serum HLA-G positivity and thyroid cancer was investigated.
