Summaries for Oropharynx Cancer

KEGG : 36 Oropharyngeal cancer is a generic term that includes tumors arising within the anatomic confines of the posterior pharyngeal wall, soft palate, tonsillar region and posterior one-third (base) of the tongue. The vast majority of these tumors (>95%) includes squamous cell carcinomas of mucosal origin. Oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (OPSCCs) are traditionally categorized as head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). High-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) is now recognised as a causative agent in a subset of OPSCCs. HPV-driven OPSCC and tobacco- and alcohol-related OPSCC are biologically distinct entities. In the former, p53 and pRb are both inactivated at the protein level by, respectively, E6 and E7 viral oncoproteins. The majority of HPV-negative tumors, instead, harbor mutations in the TP53 gene, an increased epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene copy number and higher EGFR expression by immunohistochemistry (IHC).

MalaCards based summary : Oropharynx Cancer, also known as oropharyngeal cancer, is related to squamous cell carcinoma and anus cancer. An important gene associated with Oropharynx Cancer is CDKN2A (Cyclin Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 2A), and among its related pathways/superpathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Endometrial cancer. The drugs sodium fluoride and Menthol have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include the, tongue and lymph node, and related phenotypes are Increased viability with paclitaxel and homeostasis/metabolism

Disease Ontology : 12 A pharynx cancer that is located in the oropharynx.
