Prognostic value of clinical and morphological characteristics in radiation and combined treatment for tongue cancer

Prognostic value of clinical and morphological characteristics in radiation and combined treatment for tongue cancer

Voprosy Onkologii 61(1): 90-95

It is now possible to identify several key factors that determine biological characteristics of squamous cell cancer of the head and neck: genes p53, p16, cyclin D1, P13-K/Akt connected with metastasis proteins (proteases, proteins mesenchymal cells, cell adhesion molecules chemokines), angiogenesis factors (VEGF, PDGF, FGF, TGF-alpha and TGF-beta), IL-8; epidermal growth factor receptors. An important role of tumor cells plays microenvironment. Of course the above mentioned is only a small part of the factors that determine the livelihoods and the activity of cancer cells. All of these factors are potential predictors of the effectiveness of radiation and chemoradiation treatment and actively studied in recent decades.
