Importance of hemoglobin concentration and its modification for the outcome of head and neck cancer patients treated with radiotherapy.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Hypoxia induced radioresistance has been acknowledged for decades. One of the indirect evidences of the influence of hypoxia on radiation response comes from the observations of a correlation between tumor control and hemoglobin level. This review examines the clinical data on the prognostic and predictive role of hemoglobin level and… (More)
