Giant locally advanced and metastatic squamous cell skin carcinoma of head and neck region: case report

ConclusionDespite the seemingly incurable finding it is always necessary to consider radical treatment regardless of the patient´s age. Curative treatment could achieve long term remission in the group of older patients.

Publication date: December 2020Source: Japanese Dental Science Review, Volume 56, Issue 1Author(s): Yoshito Kakihara, Tetsuo Kiguchi, Atsushi Ohazama, Makio SaekiAbstractR2TP/PAQosome (particle for arrangement of quaternary structure) is a novel multisubunit chaperone specialized in the assembly/maturation of protein complexes that are involved in essential cellular processes such as PIKKs (phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-like kinases) signaling, snoRNP (small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein) biogenesis, and RNAP II (RNA polymerase II) complex formation. In this review article, we describe the current understanding of R2TP/PAQos...

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Yinglu Guan, Guan Wang, Danielle Fails, Priyadharsini Nagarajan, Yejing GeAbstractCancer hijacks embryonic development and adult wound repair mechanisms to fuel malignancy. Cancer frequently originates from de-regulated adult stem cells or progenitors, which are otherwise essential units for postnatal tissue remodeling and repair. Cancer genomics studies have revealed convergence of multiple cancers across organ sites, including squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), a common group of cancers arising from the head and neck, esopha...

SOX2 is a binding partner and substrate of EGFR. EGFR activation induces SOX2 phosphorylation at Y277 site and reduces its ubiquitination, which inhibit its associated with p62 and subsequent autophagic degradation. Gefitinib, an EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor, decreases SOX2 expression via promoting its autophagic degradation. AbstractEpidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is highly expressed in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and correlates with poor prognosis. EGFR has been demonstrated to be associated with cancer stem cell traits in HNSCC. However, the underlying molecular mechanism is far from elucidat...

Conclusion.Compared with SCCHN, SmCCHN carries a worse survival and is more likely to present with more advanced stage.Implications for Practice.Small cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SmCCHN) is a rare subtype of head and neck cancer. In this Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) data analysis, the characteristics and survival of SmCCHN are compared with those of the common squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Results show that SmCCHN carries a worse prognosis and tends to present at a more advanced stage; SmCCHN also is ten times more likely to originate from the salivary glands. These findings m...

AbstractBackground.DNA copy number variations (CNVs) are a hallmark of cancer, and the current study aimed to demonstrate the profile of the CNVs for oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and elucidate the clinicopathological associations and molecular mechanisms of a potential marker derived from CNVs, mixed‐lineage leukemia translocated to chromosome 3 protein (MLLT3), in OSCC carcinogenesis.Materials and Methods.CNVs in 37 OSCC tissue specimens were analyzed using a high‐resolution microarray, the OncoScan array. Gene expression was analyzed by real‐time polymerase chain reaction in 127 OSCC and normal tissue...

Authors: Liu X, Cao Y, Zhang Y, Zhou H, Li H Abstract OBJECTIVE: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a common tumor of head and neck cancer. MiR-103 is involved in several tumors. However, the role and mechanism of miR103 in OSCC remain unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Oral cancer Tca8113 cells were cultured in vitro and randomly divided into control group, miR-103 mimics group, and miR-103 inhibitor group, followed by analysis of miR-103 expression by Real Time-PCR, SALL4 expression by Real Time-PCR and Western blot, cell survival by MTT assay, and cell invasion by transwell chamber assay on tumor. Real Time...
