Clinical studies have shown plasma Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA level to be an independent prognostic biomarker for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). However, the proportion of NPC patients whose tumors are associated with EBV vary with geographic location, and there are a variety of assays for plasma EBV. To develop the level of evidence needed to demonstrate the clinical utility of plasma EBV DNA detection for NPC patients and encourage widespread adoption of this biomarker test in clinical laboratories, validated harmonized assays are needed...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of warm-mist humidification during and after head and neck radiation therapy (HN RT) on quality of life (QOL), as measured by the M. D. Anderson Symptom Inventory-Head and Neck (MDASI-HN) HN score. A secondary aim was to compare QOL among compliers (≥60% of protocol-recommended usage) versus non-compliers. METHODS: Twenty patients self-administered a hand-held, self-sterilizing humidification device for a recommended time of at least 15 min twice daily for 12 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Patients who are chronically immunosuppressed have higher rates of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (cSCC-HN). This is the largest multi-institutional study to date investigating the effect of immune status on disease outcomes in patients with cSCC-HN who underwent surgery and received postoperative radiation therapy (RT). METHODS: Patients from 3 institutions who underwent surgery and also received postoperative RT for primary or recurrent, stage I through IV cSCC-HN between 1995 and 2015 were included in this institutional review board-approved study...

Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a well-tolerated modality for the treatment of primary and metastatic liver lesions, and fiducials are often used as surrogates for tumor tracking during treatment. We evaluated respiratory-induced liver deformation by measuring the rigidity of the fiducial configuration during the breathing cycle. Seventeen patients, with 18 distinct treatment courses, were treated with stereotactic body radiosurgery using multiple fiducials. Liver deformation was empirically quantified by measuring the intrafiducial distances at different phases of respiration...

The American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria are evidence-based guidelines for specific clinical conditions that are reviewed annually by a multidisciplinary expert panel. The guideline development and revision include an extensive analysis of current medical literature from peer-reviewed journals and the application of well-established methodologies (RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method and Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation or GRADE) to rate the appropriateness of imaging and treatment procedures for specific clinical scenarios...

CONTEXT: The 15-item University of Washington Quality of Life questionnaire-Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) modification (UW-QOL-RTOG modification) has been used in several trials of head and neck cancer conducted by NRG Oncology such as RTOG 9709, RTOG 9901, RTOG 0244, and RTOG 0537. OBJECTIVES: This study is an exploratory factor analysis (EFA) to establish validity and reliability of the instrument subscales. METHODS: EFA on the UW-QOL-RTOG modification was conducted using baseline data from NRG Oncology's RTOG 0537, a trial of acupuncture-like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in treating radiation-induced xerostomia...

While radiation therapy is the mainstay of treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma, the anatomic location of the nasopharynx in close proximity to radiation-sensitive organs such as the salivary glands, optic nerves and chiasm, cochlea, brainstem and temporal lobes presents a special challenge. Technological approaches to reducing the morbidity of nasopharyngeal cancer irradiation have been historically successful with the evolution from 2D techniques to increasingly conformal forms of radiation therapy. This report reviews normal tissue dose constraints and major considerations in target delineation for patients with nasopharyngeal cancer in the intensity-modulated radiation therapy era...

AIM: To provide a multi-institutional description of current practices of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for head and neck cancer. MATERIALS & METHODS: 15 international institutions with significant experience in head and neck SBRT were asked to complete a questionnaire covering clinical and technical factors. RESULTS: SBRT is used 10-100% of the time for recurrent primary head and neck cancer, and 0-10% of the time in newly diagnosed disease...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to test if diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) identified persistent neck disease after chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for oropharyngeal cancer earlier and as accurately as subsequent positron emission tomography (PET)/CT. METHODS: We performed a review of patients with oropharyngeal cancer treated with definitive CRT who underwent DWI and PET/CT at a median of 8 and 14 weeks posttreatment. Imaging characteristics were correlated with pathologically proven neck failure...

PURPOSE: The ophthalmic nerve (cranial nerve V-1) runs in close proximity to the globe, optic nerve, chiasm, and brain. The purpose of this study was to provide contouring guidance using computed tomography (CT)-identifiable landmarks, based on an analysis of skin cancer patients with V-1 invasion. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Radiation oncology planning CT scans were analyzed for landmarks to guide V-1 target delineation from the skin surface to the trigeminal ganglion...

BACKGROUND: There is a lack of data on quality of life in long-term survivors of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) who have been treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). We characterized long-term disease-specific and cognitive QoL in NPC survivors after IMRT. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of surviving patients diagnosed and treated for NPC at our center with curative-intent IMRT, with or without chemotherapy. Patients who were deceased, still undergoing treatment, with known recurrent disease, or treated with RT modality other than IMRT were excluded...

BACKGROUND: There are no level I studies to guide treatment for resectable oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Treatment toxicities influence management recommendations. Ongoing investigations are examining deintensified treatments for human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated oropharyngeal SCC. METHODS: The Appropriateness Criteria panel, using modified Delphi methodology, produced a literature summary, an assessment of treatment recommendations, and cases to illustrate their use...
