J Osborn
Volumetric Intensity-Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) offers solutions to the time consuming, higher monitor unit (MU) delivery of Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) for patients undergoing radiotherapy for head and neck cancer (HNC). Thus the aim was to determine whether VMAT would be beneficial for these patients. The majority of literature was planning comparative studies with only two studies on early clinical experience. Main themes arising from literature were conformity and homogeneity, organs at risk (OAR), MU and delivery time...

#6
Meng Xiao, Ming Yan, Jianjun Zhang, Qin Xu, Shengcai Qi, Xu Wang, Wantao Chen
Our previous studies have identified that CD166 works as a cancer stem-like cell (CSC) marker in epithelial cancers with a large repertoire of cellular functions. However, the post-translational regulatory mechanisms underlying CD166 turnover remain elusive. Several independent studies have reported that E3 ubiquitin ligase CHIP revealed significant biological effects through ubiquitin proteasome pathway on some kinds of malignant tumors. With analyzing the effects of CHIP expressions on stem-like cell populations, we found that CHIP represses CSC characteristics mainly targeting the CSC related protein CD166 in head and neck cancer (HNC)...

Mary Wells, Emma King
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: A younger population and improved treatments for head and neck cancer (HNC) mean that more people are now living longer with the consequences of treatment, including long-term swallowing problems (dysphagia). Exercises aim to improve swallowing function, however highly variable adherence rates are currently reported, with no standard measure of adherence. RECENT FINDINGS: Measuring adherence to swallowing exercises depends on the definition of 'adherence', the tools used to measure adherence, and the acceptable threshold that is used to constitute adherence or nonadherence...

BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy for head and neck cancers (HNC) causes alteration of oral mucosal barrier predisposing it to colonization and infection. Such infections often result in pain and burning sensation thus contributing to major morbidity. OBJECTIVE: MATERIALS AND METHODS: Study was done on 50 patients of HNC treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Three samples (throat, urine, blood) were collected for fungal culture and sensitivity. These samples were collected before the start of radiotherapy, during radiotherapy (2nd and 6th week) and post radiotherapy (10th week)...

Head and neck cancer (HNC) is a challenging tumour site for radiotherapy delivery owing to its complex anatomy and proximity to organs at risk (OARs) such as the spinal cord and optic apparatus. Despite significant advances in radiotherapy planning techniques, radiation-induced morbidities remain substantial. Further improvement would require high-quality imaging and tailored radiotherapy based on intratreatment response. For these reasons, the use of MRI in radiotherapy planning for HNC is rapidly gaining popularity...

OBJECTIVE: In patients with cancer, weight loss can be related to simple starvation, disturbed metabolism, or both. In patients with head and neck cancer (HNC), weight loss often is attributed to simple starvation because the obvious oral symptoms are known to hinder dietary intake. In this population, cachexia remains a relatively unexplored phenomenon. The aim of this study was to explore the prevalence of cachexia and precachexia in patients with newly diagnosed HNC. METHODS: Fifty-nine patients with newly diagnosed HNC were asked to participate in the prospective cohort study, from which only baseline data were used in the analyses...
