This proposal explores the novel hypothesis that the variability in outcomes within the Intermediate Risk(IR) HPV-positive Oropharynx Squamous Cell Carcinoma(OPSCC) cohort can be exploited...
Will meet the inclusion criteria of patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, divided into 2 groups randomly: Experimental group: radiotherapy combined with S-1 chemotherapy. ...
OPHELIA (OlaParib in patients with HEad and neck squamous-celL carcInomA) trial is a Greek, investigator-initiated, randomized open-label window-of-opportunity phase II study. Patients wit...
Concomitant chemoradiotherapy improves overall survival in patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (LA-HNSCC) compared to radiotherapy alone. Cisplatin 100 mg/...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and the safety of paclitaxel liposome injection and carboplatin compared with gemcitabine and carboplatin as first-line therapy in ...
Squamous cell cervical carcinoma is the most common gynecological malignant disorder worldwide. Early detection of squamous cell cervical carcinoma is needed for proper clinical management. Squamous c...
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with 5-fluorouracil and cisplatin (FP) has been administered to patients with clinical stage II or III esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We aimed to confirm the...
Activating events along the PI3K/mTOR pathway are common in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC), and preclinical studies suggest additive or synergistic effects when combining mTORC1 inhibi...
Nonuniform Distribution of High-risk Human Papillomavirus in Squamous Cell Carcinomas of the Oropharynx: Rethinking the Anatomic Boundaries of Oral and Oropharyngeal Carcinoma From an Oncologic HPV Perspective.
The oral cavity and oropharynx have historically been viewed as a single anatomic compartment of the head and neck. The practice of combining the oral cavity and oropharynx has recently been revised, ...
Feasibility and efficiency of concurrent chemoradiotherapy with capecitabine and cisplatin versus radiotherapy alone for elderly patients with locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: Experience of two centers.
The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of definitive concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) with capecitabine and cisplatin for elderly patients with locally...
A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A mixed adenocarcinoma and squamous cell or epidermoid carcinoma.
Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
