PURPOSE To investigate the long-term clinical outcome of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients with persistently detectable plasma EBV (pEBV) DNA after curative radiotherapy (RT). RESULTS The post-RT pEBV DNA levels were very lower copy number (median 21, interquartile range 8-206 copies/ml). After long-term follow-up, the relapse rate was 64.8%, the(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the prognostic impact of adjuvant chemotherapy (AdjCT) in patients with high-risk nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total 403 NPC patients with at least one of the following criteria (1) neck node>6cm; (2) supraclavicular node metastasis; (3) skull base destruction/intracranial invasion plus multiple nodes(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated preoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) with oxaliplatin for locally advanced, potentially operative esophageal cancer in this Phase II study. METHODS Between October 2009 and October 2011, 35 consecutive patients with newly diagnosed esophageal cancer clinical stage T3-4, N0-1, M0 were enrolled into this study. One(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between relative telomere length (RTL) and chromosomal damage represented by micronucleus (MN) frequencies among vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) -exposed workers. METHODS A group of 126 VCM-exposed workers, 60 internal controls, and 25 external controls were examined for RTL by Quantitative polymerase chain reaction and(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to gauge the effectiveness of evaluation of tumor response and prognosis by positron emission tomography with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) before and after preoperative chemoradiotherapy in patients with esophageal cancer. METHODS Forty-nine patients from October 2008 to September 2012(More)
