BACKGROUND The plasma Epstein-Barr virus DNA (EBV-DNA) level has been found to be an indicator for staging and prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS The EBV-DNA level in plasma, peripheral blood cells (PBC) and neoplastic tissues was quantitatively analyzed and potential associations with clinical parameters of NPC were(More)
More than 60% nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients receiving the radical radiotherapy treatment will develop moist desquamation skin reaction at some time during the course of treatment. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Mepilex Lite dressings and the usual care in the healing of postirradiation dermatitis in nasopharyngeal(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantitative analysis of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA levels in plasma, peripheral blood cells (PBCs) and tumor tissue in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), to investigate the relationship between EBV-DNA levels and clinical parameters. METHODS Blood of 150 primary NPC and 49 corresponding tumor tissues, 47 nasopharyngitis tissues and blood of(More)
Overexpression of the epidermal growth factor receptor can be found in 80 % of patients with locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and is associated with shorter survival. In this work, we evaluated the feasibility of adding cetuximab to concurrent cisplatin and radiotherapy (RT) in locoregionally advanced NPC. Twenty-eight patients with(More)
This study evaluated the efficacy, safety, and quality of life (QoL) measure of transdermal fentanyl (TDF) for moderate-to-severe pain due to oral mucositis caused by chemoradiotherapy in patients with advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Patients with NPC who experienced moderate-to-severe oral mucosal pain during chemoradiotherapy (n = 78) received(More)
