    Objective: To propose a novel measure, namely the 'asphericity' (ASP), of spatial irregularity of FDG uptake in the primary tumour as a prognostic marker in head-and-neck cancer. Methods: PET/CT was performed in 52 patients (first presentation, n = 36; recurrence, n = 16). The primary tumour was...

    Background: Lymph node status is one prognostic factor in head and neck cancer. The purpose of this study is to investigate the prognostic value of lymph node ratio (LNR) in head and neck cancer patients who received surgery plus postoperative chemoradiotherapy. Methods: From May 1991 to...

  • Elevated ZNF703 Protein Expression Is an Independent Unfavorable Prognostic Factor for Survival of the Patients with Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Yang, Hang; Jiang, Wen-Qi; Cao, Ye; Sun, Yong-An; Wei, Jing; An, Xin; Zhang, Ying-Chun; Song, Ming; Wang, Shu-Sen; Yuan, Zhong-Yu; Peng, Rou-Jun; Chen, Tan-Huan; Li, Li-Ren; Shi, Yan-Xia // Disease Markers;4/29/2015, Vol. 2015, p1 

    Aim. Data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) show that the ZNF703 gene amplifies and overexpresses in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC). However, the clinical relevance of this observation in HNSCC is unclear. The purpose of this study was to clarify the expression of ZNF703...

  • Increased evidence for the prognostic value of primary tumor asphericity in pretherapeutic FDG PET for risk stratification in patients with head and neck cancer. Hofheinz, Frank; Lougovski, Alexandr; Zöphel, Klaus; Hentschel, Maria; Steffen, Ingo; Apostolova, Ivayla; Wedel, Florian; Buchert, Ralph; Baumann, Michael; Brenner, Winfried; Kotzerke, Jörg; Hoff, Jörg // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;Mar2015, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p429 

    Purpose: In a previous study, we demonstrated the first evidence that the asphericity (ASP) of pretherapeutic FDG uptake in the primary tumor provides independent prognostic information in patients with head and neck cancer. The aim of this work was to confirm these results in an independent...

    Objective: Melanoma is an aggressive tumor with propensity for early metastasis and poor prognosis with delayed diagnosis. Matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) is involved in degradation of extra-cellular matrix proteins and tumor progression. Ki-67 is a predictor of tumor proliferation activity...

    Aim: It has been previously reported that metabolic tumor volume on positron emission tomography-computed tomography predicts disease recurrence and death in head-and-neck cancer. In this study, we assessed the prognostic value of metabolic tumor volume measured using F18-Fluorodeoxyglucose...

    Background: CYFRA 21-1 (cytokeratin 19 fragment) and C-reactive proteins (CRP) were separately reported to be associated with prognosis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. The combined roles of CYFRA 21-1 and CRP levels were rarely investigated in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The...

    Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a relatively uncommon, neuroendocrine, cutaneous malignancy that often exhibits clinically aggressive features and is associated with a poor prognosis. It typically presents as a painless, rapidly enlarging, dome-shaped red or purplish nodule in a sun-exposed area...

    Introduction. Patients with multiple recurrences of well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma (WDTC) have markedly reduced overall survival when compared with those who have ⩽1 recurrence of their disease. The purpose of this investigation is to identify prognostic factors for mortality in this...
