For details of BAES multicentre clinical research projects on

The Association is currently supporting two strands of research. The joint Charles Harris/RCS of England fellowship is a 2-year project examining the role of Galectin 3 as a marker for malignancy in follicular neoplasms. This was awarded to Miss Pallavi Mehrotra at Newcastle and preliminary results were presented to the Association last year. Early results would indicate that it is not as sensitive a marker for malignancy as initial data indicated. The search for a more reliable marker continues.

A second research project is a joint proposal with the Universities of Liege and Lund to run a multi-centre trial comparing sub-total with total thyroidectomy in the treatment of Graves’ Disease. A website has been established (www.egbs.be) and MREC approval has been sought. The aim is to randomise 450 patients in total. It is hoped that BAES members will make a significant contribution to this important study.
