Results: The familial group had a significantly higher risk of bilateral growth, multifocality, extrathyroidal extension, and lateral lymph node metastasis than the sporadic group (P < 0.
In addition, the Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed a statistically significant difference in DFS between the familial group and the sporadic group [90.
Further analysis showed that only the incidence of multifocality in the two affected members' group was higher than that in the sporadic group.
Goodwin told her audience that "their results were virtually identical to the sporadic group.
Parts of the work he presents here have been used to confirm the p-rank of E8(pn), and (somewhat unexpectedly) to obtain for the first time the 2-ranks of the Monster and Baby Monster sporadic groups, together with the double cover of the latter.
and to minimise the RISK of anti-social behaviour by letting people leave in small sporadic groups at the WEEKEND when we are very busy.
The result is remarkably accessible at explaining sporadic groups and also is successful at working with the cohomology of the other simple groups.
They cover generalities, sporadic groups and the Tits group, alternating groups, exceptional Schur multipliers and exceptional isomorphisms, groups of Lie type: induction from parabolic and non-parabolic subgroups, groups of Lie type: char(K) = 0, classical groups: char(K) = 0, and exceptional groups.
These criteria are then applied to alternating groups, groups of Lie type in characteristic two, classical groups of Lie type in odd characteristic, exceptional groups of Lie type in odd characteristic, and sporadic groups.
