LoweAbstractAfter their initial presentation of oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), patients have a lifelong risk of developing another new SCC of the head and neck. The aim of this study was to establish second primary rates, baseline characteristics (site, clinical or pathological stage, and smoking and alcohol history), timing, presentation, treatment, and outcomes. From the regional unit we analysed records of patients treated with curative intent for their first or...

ner Recent developments in bioinformatics technologies have led to advances in our understanding of how oncogenic viruses such as the human papilloma virus drive cancer progression and evade the host immune system. Here, we focus our review on understanding how these emerging bioinformatics technologies influence our understanding of how human papilloma virus (HPV) drives immune escape in cancers of the head and neck, and how these new informatics approaches may be generally applicable to other virally driven cancers. Indeed, these tools enable researchers to put existing data from genome wide association studies, in w...

The aim of this study was to establish second primary rates, baseline characteristics (site, clinical or pathological stage, and smoking and alcohol history), timing, presentation, treatment, and outcomes. From the regional unit we analysed records of patients treated with curative intent for their first oral cancer between 2002 and 2007 inclusive.

Newly-released data is putting Grail back in the forefront of the liquid biopsy conversation. The Menlo Park, CA-based company announced data validating the performance of its investigational multi-cancer early detection blood test for the first time in an independent cohort of participants. The validation data is coming from both the Circulating Cell-Free Genome Atlas (CCGA) study. Data show Grail’s liquid biopsy test was shown to detect more than 20 cancer types across all stages with a single, very low false-positive rate. Grail will present the results at an American Society of Clinical Oncology Break...
