Difference in expression of EGFR, pAkt, and PTEN between oropharyngeal and oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma
Oral Oncology , 06/13/2012
Won HS et al. – The authors conclude that the expression levels of EGFR, pAkt, and PTEN differ between oropharyngeal and oral cavity cancer and it may be attributed to human papillomavirus (HPV)–related molecular pathogenesis. The expression of pAkt might be an unfavorable prognostic marker for relapse–free survival in oropharyngeal cancer.
