Measurements of cytophotometric Feulgen DNA content and incorporation of 3H-thymidine were made in individual tumor cells from 58 patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the head-neck region. These measurements were correlated with a point ranking system for pathological grading for these types of tumors. Two of the parameters of the grading system, mode of invasion and nuclear polymorphism which had been found to be important factors in prognosis in clinical studies were correlated to the… CONTINUE READING
