Low body mass index at 3 months following adjuvant chemoradiation affects survival of postoperative locally advanced oral cavity cancer patients
The Laryngoscope, 08/10/2012
Chang PH et al. – Early recurrence can be predicted by malnourished status 3 months after treatment completion. Malnourishment has significant negative effects on overall survival in locally advanced postoperative oral cavity cancer patients who are undergoing adjuvant chemoradiation. After therapy is completed, nutritional guidance and care should be continued for patients with this advanced disease.
