Exome and Genome Analysis of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
The “Exome and genome sequencing of nasopharynx cancer identifies NF-κB pathway activating mutations” study provides the most comprehensive view of nasopharyngeal carcinoma genomics reported to date and presents discovery of several novel genomic events that facilitate its tumorigenesis (Nat Commun. 2017 Jan 18;8:14121. doi: 10.1038/ncomms14121). With nasopharyngeal carcinoma being one of the most aggressive head and neck cancers, the subclass features identified in this study can facilitate future laboratory studies and precision medicine-based treatment approaches.
