R. Michael Tuttle, MD, discusses definition treatment of radioactive iodine refractory patients

October 31, 2014

CORONADO, Calif. — In this video, R. Michael Tuttle, MD, professor of medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, addresses the question of how endocrinologists should define and treat patients with radioactive iodine-refractory disease.

According to Tuttle, several important sessions have tackled this issue, demonstrating patients with structural disease who no longer concentrate radioactive iodine and those whose tumors progress can be described as refractory. However, he notes the importance of questioning whether radioactive iodine is still effective in patients with advanced disease.
