Role of non-albicans Candida and Candida albicans in oral squamous cell cancer patients

This study examined the prevalence of Candida species in the saliva of oral squamous cell carcinoma patients and their effect on mortality.

Prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer treatment –related years lived with disability for men worldwide.1 This has driven a disruptive change in management of favorable-risk prostate cancer such that nearly all National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) very low-risk patients are recommended conservative management rather than radical therapy. 2 Simultaneously, at the other end of the risk spectrum, treatment intensification with more potent systemic therapies has been the subject of recent trials for men with higher-risk disease (eg, NCT02772588).

The authors' letter and translational research work support the question posed in the review1,2: Are we at the tipping point for the era of real-time radiation therapy? The research by Dahele and Verbakel adds additional clinical evidence that real-time 3-dimensional image guided radiation therapy (3D IGRT) can be performed on standard-equipped cancer radiation therapy (RT) systems. Indeed, had it been published or known to us before we wrote the review, their clinical translation of markerless spine tracking3 would have been included as a fourth real-time 3D IGRT implementation on standard-equipped systems.

Multiple randomized studies have demonstrated that breast-conserving therapy (partial mastectomy plus whole breast radiation) can yield survival outcomes equivalent to those of mastectomy (1). However, newer population-based data suggest that breast cancer –specific survival and overall survival with breast-conserving therapy may actually be better than those with mastectomy (2-8). How is this possible? How can removal of the breast yield outcomes inferior to those of a therapy that leaves most of the breast intact and where in-breast failures are r eported to occur in approximately 5% to 10% of patients at 10 y...

In the world of cancer care, Halstedian paradigms for radical surgery have evolved toward organ preservation strategies without compromising the probability of cure. As such, clinicians have increasingly turned their focus toward minimizing the stigmata of treatment, with patient-centered outcomes having greater influence on decision making. Today, patients are typically able to preserve much of their functional anatomy and cosmesis. For example, selected patients with head and neck cancers are routinely offered a strategy of larynx preservation with upfront radiation therapy and chemotherapy, reserving a more morbid total...

Given the high-grade epidural spinal cord compression, we would recommend urgent surgical decompression (1). Separation surgery for metastatic renal cell carcinoma is challenging given its highly vascular nature. As such, provided that the patient is not acutely symptomatic from spinal cord compression or overt mechanical instability, we would perform preoperative embolization of the segmental arterial feeders to improve hemostasis and visualization of the neural elements during the operation. Surgery would include a right costotransverse approach to tumor resection with likely sacrifice of the right T7 and possibly T8 ner...

Authors: Develoux M Abstract Various infectious agents are classical risk factors for cancer including bacteria, viruses and parasites. There is less evidence concerning the implication of fungal infection in carcinogenesis. The role of chronic Candida infection in the development of squamous cell carcinoma has been suspected for years. Candida sp are more prevalent in potentially malignant disorder and cancer of the oral mucosa. Other epidemiological evidence of a link between Candida infection and cancer is what is observed in patients with Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathy Candidiasis Ectodermal Dystrophy (APECED). ...

Some of them have a key role in the development of oral disease. Interrelationships between oral microbiome and systemic conditions such as head-and-neck cancer have become increasingly appreciated in recent years. Emerging evidence also suggests a link between periodontal disease and oral cancer, and the explanation being that chronic inflammation could be...

Authors: Hettmann A, Demcsák A, Decsi G, Bach Á, Pálinkó D, Rovó L, Nagy K, Takács M, Minarovits J Abstract In addition to traditional risk factors such as smoking habits and alcohol consumption, certain microbes also play an important role in the generation of head and neck carcinomas. Infection with high-risk human papillomavirus types is strongly associated with the development of oropharyngeal carcinoma, and Epstein-Barr virus appears to be indispensable for the development of non-keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma of the nasopharynx. Other viruses including torque te...
