Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Diagnosis of Mandibular Involvement from Head and Neck Cancers: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Background Diagnosis of mandibular involvement caused by head and neck cancers is critical for treatment. We performed a meta-analysis to determine the diagnostic efficacy of MR for distinguishingExpand
Smad7 Promotes Healing of Radiotherapy-Induced Oral Mucositis without Compromising Oral Cancer Therapy in a Xenograft Mouse Model
Purpose: We previously reported preventive and therapeutic effects of Smad7, a multifunctional protein, on radiotherapy (RT)-induced mucositis in mice without promoting human oral cancer cellExpand
Interventions for the treatment of Frey's syndrome.
BACKGROUND Frey's syndrome is a rare disorder, the symptoms of which include sweating, flushing and warming over the preauricular and temporal areas following a gustatory stimulus. It often occurs inExpand
Management of Multicentric Myopericytoma in the Maxillofacial Region: A Case Report
Myopericytoma (MPC) is a rare kind of benign neoplasm, showing derivation from perivascular myoid cells. About 115 cases have been reported in the English literature; however, most of the literatureExpand
Paradoxical roles of TGF-&bgr; signaling in suppressing and promoting squamous cell carcinoma
Transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) signaling either promotes or inhibits tumor formation and/or progression of many cancer types including squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Canonical TGF-β signalingExpand
Cancer Cell CD44 Mediates Macrophage/Monocyte-Driven Regulation of Head and Neck Cancer Stem Cells
These findings establish a mechanistic link between tumor cell CD44, TAM, and CSC properties at the tumor-stroma interface that can serve as a vital area of focus for target and drug discovery.Expand
Topical Application of Tat-Rac1 Promotes Cutaneous Wound Healing in Normal and Diabetic Mice
The endogenous small GTPase, Rac1, plays a critical role during normal skin wound healing. It remains to be determined whether endogenous Rac1 can be appropriately activated in chronic wounds; ifExpand
A personalized computational model predicts cancer risk level of oral potentially malignant disorders and its web application for promotion of non-invasive screening.
BACKGROUND Despite their high accuracy to recognize oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMDs) with cancer risk, non-invasive oral assays are poor in discerning whether the risk is high or low.Expand
Macrophage-derived exosomes in cancers: Biogenesis, functions and therapeutic applications.
Macrophages are fundamental to promote tumorigenesis, tumor development and metastasis, and chemotherapy resistance through modulating tumor microenvironment and cancer cells. Recently, increasingExpand
Graft Interposition for Preventing Frey's Syndrome in Patients Undergoing Parotidectomy
BACKGROUND Frey's syndrome is characterised by transient flushing and sometimes facial sweating in the area of the auriculotemporal nerve. It most commonly occurs after parotidectomy, but otherExpand
