Something that may be of interest?
Levesque et al. "Discovery of a Thorne-Żytkow object candidate in the Small Magellanic Cloud"
According to the paper the star HV 2112 in the SMC seems to be a promising candidate for being a TŻO based on its abundances (though there are still some oddities that are not predicted by TŻO models). These objects have been predicted as a stage of the evolution of high-mass binaries, so could be interesting if confirmed.
