The prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma

By | January 19, 2012

The prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, based on years of clinical tests, from the histological features observed in nasopharyngeal carcinoma mesenchymal number of lymphocytes or plasma cells is closely related with the prognosis.
Also suggested that the factors that affect the radiation effects may be related to lymphocyte quantity. However, the number of histologically confirmed large amounts lymphocytes 59.5%, moderate 51.2%, a small amount to 41.09%, three groups were significantly different, so that this needs further study. NPC prognosis of the treatment, most scholars believe that around the cancer nests the number of plasma cells, the 5-year survival after radiotherapy in patients with great impact. A set of documents that the content of plasma cells around the cancer nest more than 5-year survival rate was 70.27%, moderate content of The 5 year survival rate was 44.79%, the content of a group of little 5-year survival rate was 37.30%, after three There was significant statistical difference. And found that the number of plasma cells and cancer related to histological differentiation of squamous cell carcinoma of the difference between plasma cells containing a small amount of persons, to a large proportion of the number, accounting for 46.89%; large amounts were small, accounting for 17.01%. Instead vesicular nucleus cell carcinoma of the large group of plasma cells in large amounts, accounting for 67.34%, 16.33% small group, therefore, poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma 5-year survival rate is low.
The prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, some experts believe that cancer, interstitial lymphocytic infiltration, to a certain extent, reflect the immune status of infiltration in cancer tissues sensitized lymphocytes, will produce a cytotoxic to neighboring cell destruction and collapse, so interstitial lymphocyte response in patients with good prognosis.
