Nasopharygneal carcinoma

V W C Wu, M T C Ying, D L W Kwong
OBJECTIVES: Xerostomia is a common post-radiotherapy (post-RT) complication in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients. This study evaluated the relation of post-RT parotid gland changes with the dose received. METHODS: Data from 18 NPC patients treated by radiotherapy between 1997 and 2001 were collected. Parotid gland volumes were measured and compared between their pre-RT and post-RT CT images; both sets of CT were conducted with the same scanning protocol. Doppler ultrasound was used to assess the haemodynamic condition of the glands after radiotherapy...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the radiosensitization of paclitaxel combined with radiation on nasopharygneal carcinoma cells( CNE-I) in vitro. METHODS: Human CNE-I cells were used for this study. Clonogenic assay was used to determine the drug dose of IC10, IC50 and IC90 for CNE-I Cells. The cells treated with different concentration of paclitaxel for 24 hours before or after radiation (dose ranged from 0 - 10 Gy ) were used to evaluate the radiosensitizing effect of paclitaxel combined with radiation...

OBJECTIVE: To study the expression of transforming growth factor(TGF) beta s, their receptors and TGF beta-receptor interacting protein-1 (TRIP-1) in nasopharygneal carcinoma. METHODS: Immunohistochemical technology and in situ hybridization methods were adopted to detect the TRIP-1 mRNA and 3 kinds of TGF beta isoforms and 2 kinds of TGF beta receptors protein in the same biopsy specimen. RESULTS: The positive expression of TGF beta 1, TGF beta 2, TGF beta 3, TGF beta R I and TGF beta R II was stronger in the tumor adjacent epithelium than in the tumor itself, which were 65...
