Researchers use genetic insights to develop model for HPV-linked head and neck cancer

A University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center-led research team has used genetic insights about head and neck cancers linked to HPV, or human papillomavirus, to improve laboratory tools for studying the disease. Leveraging their discovery that different subtypes of HPV-linked oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma exist based on the expression levels of two different …
