Özet

Objective: Standard treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer includes total thyroidectomy and high-dose Radioactive Iodine Therapy (RIT) for ablation of remnant thyroid tissue. When administered systemically, RIT can cause radiation-induced damage in non-targeted normal tissues. The aim of the present study was to compare the protective effects of amifostine (AMI), L-Carnitine (LC), and Vitamin E (EVIT) against high dose radioactive iodine treatment induced Salivary Gland (SG) damage using SG scintigraphy and histopathological examination.
