Prognostic factors in T3 glottic cancer

Abstract

A detailed statistical analysis of prognostic factors influencing the local control rate by irradiation in T3 glottic cancer is presented. This has been done to identify favorable and unfavorable prognostic factors in order to precisely identify areas where new treatment strategies are needed. Between 1963 and 1977, 110 patients with T3NOMO glottic cancer were treated with radical radiotherapy with surgery for salvage. Only one of 12 women recurred following irradiation compared with 50 recurrences so far among the 98 men (P = 0.006). The recurrence rate among men using an NSD of less than 1700 rets was significantly higher than when an NSD of greater than 1700 rets was used (P = 0.022). This difference remained significant even after correction for other possible confounding variables. The recurrence rate among men over the age of 60 years was significantly lower than in men under 60 (P = 0.022). This difference in local control is due to a high proportion of patients with residual disease following irradiation. Factors not found to be of significance included radiation field size, superficial extent of disease, and tracheostomy before or during treatment. No difference in surgical salvage between the residual and recurrent di...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
