This article reviews the current understanding of initiation, progression, and metastasis of OSCC from both genetic and epigenetic perspectives. In addi tion, the applications and integration of omics technologies in biomarker discovery and drug development for treating OSCC are reviewed.
ConclusionsObjective evaluations, such as LR and BCR using the FV device, appear to be useful for discriminating between OSCC and OLP.
ConclusionIn this retrospective study, the functional morbidity and complications of TORS for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma resection were favourable in reconstructed and non-reconstructed patients.Level of Evidence: Level III, therapeutic study.
Conclusion: Insights gained from this study may lead to research targeted at the treatment of OSCC.
This study evaluates the accuracy of the results of liquid-based oral brush cytology and compares it to the histology and/or the clinical follow-ups of the respective patients. A total of 1352 exfoliated specimens were collected with an Orcellex brush from an identical number of oral lesions, then cytological diagnoses were made using liquid-based cytology. The final diagnoses in the study were 105 histologically proven squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), 744 potentially malignant lesions and 503 cases of traumatic, inflammatory or benign hyperplastic oral lesions. The sensitivity and specificity of the liquid-based brush bio...
The aim of this study was to validate the prognostic significance of the lymph node ratio (LNR) in patients suffering from oral squamous cell carcinoma in regard to different anatomical subsites. A cohort of 430 patients was investigated to determine the rates of primary metastasis and local and regional disease recurrence. Correlation analysis of the LNR with relevant clinical and pathological parameters was performed. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was conducted to evaluate the prognostic impact for different subsites.
This report discusses a case of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in an 80-year male patient with clinical presentation of non-healing painless ulceroproliferative growth, which mimics squamous cell carcinoma.
CONCLUSION: Intraoperative radiographic assessment of bone resection margins is a promising technique, though further validation is required. PMID: 31722565 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
