Population-based assessment of relationship between volume of practice and outcomes in head and neck cancer patients treated in a provincially coordinated radiotherapy program.

CONCLUSIONS: In our provincially coordinated radiotherapy program, there was no significant difference in survival between cancer centers after controlling for differences in rurality, physician case volume and other potential confounding variables.

Abstract Thyroid cancer incidence has been continuity increasing worldwide. Uridine phosphorylase 1 (UPP1) is a protein-coding gene and has been detected that UPP1 was the higher expression in many solid malignancies, just as head and neck cancers, breast cancer, compared with paired normal tissue. But the act of UPP1 in thyroid cancer is not explicit. In this article, we investigate the function of UPP1 expression in thyroid cancer. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) unpaired thyroid cancer and normal RNA-seq data were downloaded, and our paired thyroid cancer and normal samples were analysed by a polymerase chain re...

CONCLUSION: More than 50% of low-risk PTMC are on AS in Japan. However, the indication and recommendation for AS vary significantly between institutions. To improve the implementation of this management modality, physicians and patients should be further educated, and the socio-medical environment should be improved.

Recent studies have demonstrated that there may be a causal link between obesity and higher risks and mortality of cancers, including prostate, breast, colon, and thyroid cancers, head and neck cancer (HNC). This review focuses on the relationship between obesity and HNC, and the molecular mechanism of abnormal lipid metabolism in HNC. Elucidating the ...
