BACKGROUND/AIM Prognosis for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is poor in most cases and has not improved despite advances in therapy. Novel therapeutic approaches are mandatory in order to improve the situation. Everolimus, an inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin, as well as the multi-tyrosine kinase inhibitors sorafenib and(More)
BACKGROUND Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the most common malignant epithelial tumor in the upper aerodigestive tract. The incidence of HNSCC induced by the oncogenic human papilloma virus (HPV) is rising, indicating a growing importance of the viral etiology. Cell proliferation, migration and tumor vascularization are regulated by a set(More)
In ENT, polyhexanide-containing solutions are used to treat nasal infections caused by multiresistant bacteria like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Many forms of commercial nasal solutions containing polyhexanide exist, such as gels or solutions for topical use. Data regarding the influence of polyhexanide on ciliary beat frequency (CBF) are(More)
UNLABELLED In chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) an important feature is the infiltration of eosinophils, triggered by T-helper type 2 cells (TH2). Binding of the CpG oligodeoxynucleotide (CpG-ODN) ligand to toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) induces a shift from a TH2- to a TH1-type response. We evaluated the hypothesis that CpG-ODN could reduce the predominantly(More)
Tissue engineering represents a promising research field, targeting the creation of new functional muscle tissue in vitro. The aim of the present study was to show the influence of static magnetic fields (SMF) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1), as enhancing stimuli on human satellite cell cultures, which are preferred sources of stem cells in(More)
The majority of patients affected by chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) suffer from eosinophilic infiltration. We hypothesised that polihexanide and polyethylene glycol as an antiseptic might alter the eosinophil-associated IL-5 and eotaxin-3 expression in CRS and also the expression of MMP-9, being involved in the tissue-remodelling in CRS. After obtaining(More)
IMPORTANCE Keloids are fibroproliferative scars that can cause a huge psychological burden and severe problems for patients, such as depression. Many treatment options exist; however, recurrence rates, especially with monotherapy, remain high. OBJECTIVE To investigate the recurrence rate and changes in quality of life after multimodal therapy. DESIGN,(More)
BACKGROUND After tracheostomy, the airway lacks an essential mechanism for warming and humidifying the inspired air with the consequent functional impairment and discomfort. The purpose of this study was to compare airway hydration with cold-air nebulization versus heated high-flow humidification on medical interventions and tracheal ciliary beat frequency(More)
BACKGROUND Incidence of oropharyngeal head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) induced by the human papilloma virus (HPV) is rising. HNSCC is the sixth most common neoplasia worldwide. The survival rate remains poor, thus innovative therapy approaches are necessary. Everolimus, an inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin, as well as the(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis plays a crucial role in the formation and progression of tumor growth in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The tyrosine kinase receptors epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) are essential for mediation of pro-angiogenic signals. Nilotinib, dasatinib, erlotinib(More)
