MiRNA –mRNA crosstalk in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma based on the TCGA database
ConclusionsOur study provides the most comprehensive information on the expression of miRNAs in LSCC and identifies the known oncogenic miRNAs (such as miR-163a), as well as aberrant expression of novel miRNAs involved in cell regulation and metabolic defects that occur during development of LSCC.
To explore the effect of miR-196bon the biological features of human laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) through targeting PCDH-17.
AbstractCombined oridonin (ORI), a natural and safe kaurene diterpenoid isolated fromRabdosia rubescens, and cetuximab (Cet), an anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody, have been reported to exert synergistic anti-tumor effects against laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) both in vitro and in vivo by our group. In the present study, we further found that ORI/Cet treatment not only resulted in apoptosis but also induced autophagy. AMPK/mTOR signaling pathway was found to be involved in the activation of autophagy in ORI/Cet-treated LSCC cells, which is independent of p53 status. Additionally, chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)...
CheckMate 141, an open-label, randomized phase III trial of nivolumab, indicated that treatment with nivolumab prolonged overall survival of patients with platinum-refractory, recurrent head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Herein, we describe a case of brain metastasis of parotid carcinoma in which a good response was achieved after nivolumab treatment. The patient was a 67-year-old woman with parotid carcinoma (cT4bN0M0) who received induction chemotherapy followed by chemoradiation. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging performed 10 weeks after the primary treatment revealed a residual tumor and brain and lung metastases.
Cancer-related fatigue impairs daily functioning and negatively impacts health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Our previous study revealed that cisplatin-based chemoradiotherapy (CRT) impairs the carnitine system and carnitine deficiency leads to poor physical functioning. This open label, randomized, controlled prospective study investigated the effects of l-carnitine administration on plasma carnitine concentration, CRT-induced fatigue, and decline in HRQoL in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).
Conclusion: TORS-SL for SCC was performed in a safe, reliable, and smooth manner and was shown to be successful in treating our patients. We thus believe that our step-by-step surgical technique for TORS-SL is efficient and reproducible.ORL 2018;80:171 –177
ConclusionThis exploratory study suggests that pre-radiotherapy DECT-derived IC quantitative analysis of tumoral volume may help predict LRR in L/H SCC.
Abstract Objectives: The correlation of XRCC-1 Gene Arg194Trp polymorphism with alcohol and tobacco substance user and with loco-regionally progressed squamous cell cancer of the larynx (LSCC) was assessed in this research study. The result of this research study is described herein. Material and methods: A tertiary hospital-based observational case-control research was carried out. DNA segregation and Genotype examination were done from the blood sample of the control group and cases to know the correlation between XRCC-1 gene polymorphism with loco-regionally progressed LSCC and with hazard factors tobacco ...

Abstract OBJECTIVES:: Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) can involve different anatomic subunits with peculiar surgical and prognostic implications. Despite conflicting outcomes for the same stage of disease, the current staging system considers different lesions in a single cluster. The aim of this study was to critically discuss clinical and pathologic staging of primary and recurrent advanced LSCC in order to define current staging pitfalls that impede a precise and tailored treatment strategy. METHODS:: Thirty patients who underwent total laryngectomy in the past 3 years for primary and recurrent ad...
