Site disparities in apoptotic variants as predictors of risk for second primary malignancy in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(BMC cancer, 2016-02-08)
FAS/FASL promoter variants are considered in altering transcriptional activity of those genes and consequently alter regulation of cell death. However, no studies have investigated whether tumor sites contribute ...
MicroRNA variants increase the risk of HPV-associated squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx in never smokers.
(PloS one, 2013-01)
Both microRNAs and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection play an important role in the development and progression of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). In addition, microRNAs affect all facets of the immune/inflammation ...
Association of tumor necrosis factor-alpha promoter variants with risk of HPV-associated oral squamous cell carcinoma.
(Molecular cancer, 2013-07-19)
Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) plays an important role in inflammation, immunity, and defense against infection and clearance of human papillomavirus (HPV). Thus, genetic variants may modulate individual susceptibility ...
