The nitric oxide (NO)-sensitive soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC) is a heterodimeric enzyme with an α and β subunit. NO binds to heme of the β1 -subunit of sGC, activates the enzyme in the reduced heme iron state in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), and generates cGMP-inducing vasodilatation and suppression of VSMC proliferation. In the complex tumor milieu with higher levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS), sGC heme iron may become oxidized and insensitive to NO. To change sGC from an NO-insensitive to NO-sensitive state or NO-independent manner, protein expression of sGC in VSMC is required...

Head and neck cancers are the sixth most common cancers worldwide and an important cause of ill health.(1) Each year about 9000 cases are reported in the UK.(2) Survival is poor and despite advances in treatment, has not improved until recently.(3) The majority of head and neck cancers are squamous cell carcinomas, affecting the larynx, oropharynx and oral cavity. The aetiology is changing and this has implications for prevention and treatment. Twenty years ago, tobacco and alcohol consumption were considered to be the established risk factors and it was estimated that these risk factors accounted for about 75% of cases...

INTRODUCTION: A great deal of research is being conducted into PD-L1 immunohistochemistry (IHC) and tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) as predictive or prognostic biomarkers for immunotherapy, although several practical issues exist concerning their assessment. The aim of this research was therefore to assess the importance of choice of materials and methods in PD-L1 and TILs scoring in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). METHODS AND RESULTS: IHC for PD-L1 (SP142 and 22C3 clone) and TILs subtyping was performed on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue slides (biopsy, resection and/or lymph nodes specimens) of 99 patients with OSCC...

BACKGROUND: Distinguishing branchial cleft cysts (BCCs) from cystic metastases of a human papillomavirus (HPV) positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) is challenging. Fine needle aspirates (FNAs) from cystic metastasis may be non-representative, while reactive squamous cells from BCC can be atypic. Based on cytology and with the support of HPV DNA positivity many centers treat cystic metastasis oncological and thus patients are spared neck dissection. To do so safely, one must investigate whether HPV DNA and p16INK4a overexpression is found exclusively in cystic metastases and not in BCC...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of human papillomavirus-induced (HPV+) head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) i.e. especially oropharyngeal cancers (OPSCC) is increasing and a significant proportion of patients encounter disease progression. A simple and sensitive test to identify patients with progression is an unmet need. OBJECTIVE OF REVIEW: To systematically review the literature and carry out a meta-analysis of studies, investigated circulating HPV-DNA as a biomarker for disease progression in patients with HNSCC...

BACKGROUND: Oligometastasis is a good prognostic indicator when compared to widely metastatic disease in malignancies of other organ systems. We hypothesized that oligometastasis in human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) would be associated with better overall survival. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of all HPV-positive oropharyngeal SCC treated at one center with at least 1-year of follow-up. Patients were stratified into 2 cohorts: oligometastasis (1-2 metastases, confined to 1 organ system) or polymetastasis (>2 metastases or multiple organ involvement) with cohorts compared for time to distant metastasis and overall survival after metastasis...

PURPOSE: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is implicated in carcinogenesis of a variety of epithelia, including oropharyngeal and laryngeal. High risk (HR) HPV persistent infection in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) is a significant event, but its influence regarding the prognosis and survival in these patients remains under consideration. Our aim was to analyze a series of oropharyngeal (OP) SCCs at the HPV DNA level, correlating them to the survival status of the corresponding patients...

BACKGROUND: HPV-associated OSCC (HPV-OSCC) has been determined to be a distinct disease entity from non-HPV associated OSCC. Patients affected by HPV-OSCC generally have a more favourable prognosis, with improved rates of locoregional control and survival compared with their non-HPV counterparts. Despite this, HPV-OSCC has a similar rate of distant metastases. Interestingly, recent evidence has emerged that demonstrates more frequent atypical metastasis patterns when compared to non-HPV associated disease...

CONCLUSIONS: We did not identify any strong associations between HPV-16 viral load and any of the clinical or lifestyle factors. OBJECTIVE: The epidemiology of oropharyngeal SCC is changing, with an increasing proportion of HPV-positive cases seen in the last decade. It is known that a high viral load is linked to the development of cervical cancer, the relation between viral load and oropharyngeal SCC is less clear. We sought to determine HPV-16 viral load in HPV-positive oropharyngeal SCCs using highly sensitive digital PCR and to identify clinical and lifestyle factors associated with viral load...
