AbstractHead and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) develops in the mucosal lining of the upper aerodigestive tract, principally as a result of exposure to carcinogens present in tobacco products and alcohol, with oncogenic papillomaviruses also being recognized as etiological agents in a limited proportion of cases. As such, there is considerable scope for prevention of disease development and progression. However, despite multimodal approaches to treatment, tumor recurrence and metastatic disease are common problems, and clinical outcome is unsatisfactory. As our understanding of the genetics and biochemical aberration...

Publication date: Available online 17 July 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Katie Suzanne Traylor, Nicholas Koontz, Kristine MosierAbstractThe incidence of head and neck cancer continues to rise annually, most commonly squamous cell carcinoma (SCCa). Advances in imaging techniques have improved diagnostic accuracy with important ramifications for initial staging and post-treatment surveillance. FDG-PET/CT and, more recently, FDG-PET/MRI have revolutionized the staging and surveillance of head &neck SCCa. We detail the diagnostic role of FDG-PET/CT and FDG-PET/MRI of SCCa at the different head an...

Checkpoint immunotherapy has revolutionised the way that melanoma is treated and has also shown significant effectiveness in lung, bladder, renal, and head and neck cancers. At the present time, trials of checkpoint immunotherapy in cervical cancer are at early phases, but there is very good rationale for pursuing this as a treatment option, especially as cervical cancer is a virally driven cancer and therefore should be recognised by the immune system as being foreign. This review explores the biomarkers for the selection of patients for immunotherapy in other cancers, such as programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression,...

In this study, original data of three independent datasets were downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database (GEO) and R language was applied to screen out the differentially expressed genes (DEGs). PYGM and TNNC2 were finally selected from the overlapping DEGs of three datasets for further analyses. Transcriptional and survival data related to PYGM and TNNC2 was detected through multiple online databases such as Oncomine, GEPIA, cBioportal, and UALCAN. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) analysis was adopted for the validation of PYGM and TNNC2 mRNA level in HNSCC tissues and cell lines. Surviv...
