Chemotherapy and radiotherapy in nasopharyngeal carcinoma: an update of the MAC-NPC meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results confirm that the addition of concomitant chemotherapy to radiotherapy significantly improves survival in patients with locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

TLDR
This trial demonstrated the significant survival benefits of concurrent chemotherapy plus adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locoregionally advanced NPC in endemic regions of China.
Concurrent chemoradiotherapy plus adjuvant chemotherapy versus concurrent chemoradiotherapy alone in patients with locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma: a phase 3 multicentre randomised
TLDR
Adjuvant cisplatin and fluorouracil chemotherapy did not significantly improve failure-free survival after concurrent chemoradiotherapy in locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma and such regimens should not be used outside well-designed clinical trials.
The volume to be irradiated during selective neck irradiation in nasopharyngeal carcinoma
TLDR
The spread pattern of lymph node metastases in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) metastases is analyzed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the efficacy of selective neck irradiation was assessed based on the volume irradiated.
Detection of the deletion on Yp11.2 in a Chinese population.
TLDR
The current and previous findings suggest additional gender test for ambiguous sex determination may be required, and the mechanism and dropout frequency of AMELY and adjacent Y-STRs are inferred.
The N Staging System in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma with Radiation Therapy Oncology Group Guidelines for Lymph Node Levels Based on Magnetic Resonance Imaging
TLDR
The proposed N staging system of NPC using RTOG guidelines based on MRI is highly predictive and may provide a more objective method for staging NPCs.
Extension of local disease in nasopharyngeal carcinoma detected by magnetic resonance imaging: improvement of clinical target volume delineation.

  • 1 November 2009
TLDR
By MRI the local extension patterns in patients presenting with nasopharyngeal carcinoma are defined to improve clinical target volume delineation and selective radiotherapy of the local disease in NPC may be feasible.
Efficacy and Safety of Locoregional Radiotherapy With Chemotherapy vs Chemotherapy Alone in De Novo Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma: A Multicenter Phase 3 Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
Radiotherapy added to chemotherapy significantly improved OS in chemotherapy-sensitive patients with mNPC, and progression-free survival was improved in the chemotherapy plus radiotherapy group compared with the chemotherapy-alone group.
Development and External Validation of Nomograms for Predicting Survival in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Patients after Definitive Radiotherapy
TLDR
Nomograms incorporating plasma EBV DNA for predicting DMFS and OS of nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients after definitive radiotherapy allowed significant distinction between Kaplan-Meier curves for survival outcomes.
Cervical lymph node carcinoma metastasis from unknown primary site: a retrospective analysis of 154 patients
TLDR
The clinical characteristics of CCUP patients treated at this institution and how these characteristics and treatments were associated with survival are analyzed to help clinicians when selecting the treatment approach are useful to clinicians.
