  • Iodine Transporter Research
    2014 – 2015

    FCF funded Dr. Nancy Carrasco at Yale School of Medicine to analyze FLC cells to discover whether they could be effectively targeted by radioactive iodine. Radioactive iodine has a long history as a safe and effective treatment for thyroid cancer. Research had indicated that fibrolamellar cells might have pathways similar to those of thyroid cancer cells. Use of radioactive iodine on several patients did not confirm this theory and the project was terminated.
