Gene expression of 270 patients with head and neck cancer
Within the Leipzig Head and Neck Group (LHNG) we designed an observational cohort study to include consecutive patients with primary and metachronous secondary HNSCC of oral cavity, larynx, oro-, and hypopharynx. All tumors were pathohistologically classified as head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (ICDO-M-8070/3, 8071/3, 8083/3). Excluded from the study were patients with prior history of cancer other than HNSCC within the last 5 years.
