Oral cancer prognostic signature identified
from FAPESP via ScienceDaily
Researchers in Brazil have identified a correlation between oral cancer progression and the abundance of certain proteins present in tumor tissue and saliva. The discovery offers a parameter for predicting progression of the disease — whether cervical lymph node metastasis is present, for example—and points to a strategy for overcoming the limitations of clinical and imaging exams. It could also help guide the choice of an ideal treatment for each patient.
