This study of papillary thyroid carcinomas in populations exposed to the 1986 accident in Chernobyl, Ukraine, provides the first documentation of PAX8/PPARγ rearrangements in post-Chernobyl thyroid cancer; demonstrates a link between chromosomal rearrangements, but not point mutations, and individual iodine-131 dose received; and points to a possible role of iodine deficiency in generation of RET/PTC rearrangements in these patients.
