Study finds potential avenues for nasopharyngeal cancer treatment

the ONA take:

Current knowledge of the molecular biology of nasopharyngeal cancer is limited. Research into this form of cancer, which attacks the lining of the nasopharynx, has not been extensive and no targeted therapies have been determined.

In a recent study, researchers from Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at the National University of Singapore, National University Cancer Institute Singapore (NCIS) and National University Hospital Singapore (NUH), examined the proteins and genomic DNA from more than 100 patients in Singapore that have nasopharyngeal cancer. This examination showed gene mutations that cause of worsen the nasopharyngeal cancer and specifically identified nine mutated genes directly associated with this cancer type. This opens a path for new research by this team and others in developing targeted treatment related to these genetic defects.

A team of scientists from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at the National University of Singapore, National University Cancer Institute Singapore (NCIS) and National University Hospital Singapore (NUH), discovered a distinct mutational signature and nine significantly mutated genes associated with nasopharyngeal cancer, paving the way to developing novel therapies for this deadly disease.
