Mature results from a Swedish comparison study of conventional versus accelerated radiotherapy in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma - The ARTSCAN trial.

The addition of information on the HPV-associated p16 overexpression did not explain this lack of effect. PMID: 26427805 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
