Researchers identify genes that signal oral cancer spread

Discovery could lead to the development of a biomarker-based test in lieu of neck surgery

If confirmed by additional research, the discovery of this four-gene set could lead to the development of a biomarker-based test of the tumor that could help physicians determine whether oral squamous cell carcinoma has spread and therefore become more deadly. The findings appear in the April 15 issue of Clinical Cancer Research.
