Project description:MiRNA expression profiles were successfully examined through expression profiling of a total of 656 miRNAs between 2 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) tissues (C) and their paired adjacent normal mucousal tissues (AN). In the study presented here, 2 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) tissues (C) and their paired adjacent normal mucousal tissues (AN) were examined by miRNA array
Project description:Sage performed on microdissection of Head and Neck tumor, and Head and Neck normal tissue comparative analysis of gene expression profiles of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and Head and Neck normal tissue
Project description:Sage performed on microdissection of Head and Neck tumor, and Head and Neck normal tissue Overall design: comparative analysis of gene expression profiles of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and Head and Neck normal tissue
Project description:Genome-wide expression array measurements for 9 head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) stratified by worst pattern of invasion (WPOI) Jayakar et al. (2016). Apolipoprotein E promotes invasion in oral squamous cell carcinoma. Li et al. (2013). Validation of the risk model: high-risk classification and tumor pattern of invasion predict outcome for patients with low-stage oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma. Comparison of transcription profiles between OSCC tumors with a more invasive (WPOI 5) versus a less invasive (WPOI 3) pattern of invasion using two independent Illumina platforms.
Project description:The aim of the present study was to evaluate miRNAs as response predictors in FFPE head and neck samples from a phase II clinical trial designed to evaluate the feasibility of delivering cisplatin concurrent with radiotherapy after an induction chemotherapy (IC) regimen based on the combination of cisplatin plus paclitaxel in locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients. For this purpose, we assessed the global miRNA expression profile of 15 HNSCC patients undergoing treatment, in order to identify miRNAs able to segregate resistant tumors from the sensitive ones, thus serving as markers to predict response. The results showed four miRNAs (miR-21, miR-494, miR-720 and miR-923) that were overexpressed in HNSCC FFPE samples.
Project description:Patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) have a poor prognosis due to the development of locoregional recurrences, distant metastases and second primary tumors. There is an urgent need for biomarkers that enable detection and monitoring of the disease to provide adequate therapeutic strategies. In this study we have investigated markers in peripheral blood cells (PBC) of 28 HNSCC patients who underwent surgery by means of expression profiling. Our hypothesis is that nucleated blood cells circulate continuously, also passing the tumor, and might change their expression profiles in response to tumor cell factors. For comparison, we enrolled a control group of 11 patients who underwent surgery in the head and neck region for non-HNSCC reasons. A set of 2,349 genes was found to be statistically different between the groups (p<0.05, false discovery rate-corrected) and the most prominently different pathways were EIF2 and mTOR signaling. These preliminary results are promising and warrant further studies on the definitive role of PBC gene expression as a biomarker for HNSCC detection and monitoring. Two-color experiment with each individual sample in a single channel. RNA of nucleated blood cells of humans was analysed. Case-control analysis, with 28 cases, patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and 11 controls, without squamous cell carcinoma
Project description:Microarrays were used to examine gene expression differences between human head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cell lines (FaDu, UTSCC8, UTSCC42a) grown in culture in comparison to a normal oral epithelial cell line. Gene expression data was integrated with global protein expression of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cell lines and conditioned media to identify secreted protein markers up-regulated at the mRNA level in cancer cells versus the normal cell line. Total RNA obtained from head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cell lines and a normal oral epithelial cell line
Project description:We performed gene expression profiling of 39 head and neck cancer cell lines and 1 hela cell line, and classified them based on previous classification of head and neck squamous cell tumors from patients We performed gene expression profiling of 39 head and neck cancer cell lines and 1 hela cell line.
Project description:Genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs). The Illumina Infinium 27k Human DNA methylation BeadChip v1.2 was used to obtain DNA methylation profiles across approximately 27,000 CpGs in fresh-frozen tumor tissues. Samples included 91 tumors from the oralpharynx and larynx, reflecting all stages of disease, 18 normal head and neck National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) samples, and 213 normal control blood samples. Bisulphite-converted DNA from the 91 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma samples were hybridized to the Illumina Infinium 27k Human Methylation Beadchip v1.2.
