Standard therapy for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the vulva consists of radical surgery and inguinal node dissection. Radiation therapy has been used for preoperative treatment in advanced cases to reduce the size of the tumor, and also as the only treatment in inoperable or recurrent disease. To study the inherent radiation sensitivity of vulvar carcinoma, we tested three new vulvar carcinoma cell lines and the long-established cell line A-431 by using a 96-well plate clonogenic assay… CONTINUE READING
