Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) accounts for approximately 5-10% of thyroid cancers. In the case of tumors limited to the thyroid gland, the prognosis is generally favorable, whereas 5-year survival averages only 40% in patients with metastatic disease. In these patients, conventional chemotherapy only occasionally leads to a complete response and partial responses are observed in less than 30% of the cases. Therefore, intense efforts are currently directed toward the identification of new druggable targets for the treatment of this devastating disease.
