The quality of cancer stem cells, rather than their quantity, may be the factor that leads to better survival in certain patients with oral cancer.
Researchers from Boston, Massachusetts; Mexico; and Norway have completed a comprehensive genomic analysis of cervical cancer in two patient populations.
The human papillomavirus (HPV) may be to blame for the alarming increase of young adults with oropharyngeal cancer.
A new understanding of the genetic process that can lead to cervical cancer may help improve diagnosis of potentially dangerous lesions for some women.
