From its creation, oncological chemotherapy has been weighted down by means of its bad selectivity simply because such a lot antiproliferative medications are poisonous not just to tumor cells but additionally to special populations of the body’s non-neoplastic cells. the ensuing issues of negative effects are compounded through problems in predicting the specified efficiency of chemotherapy in person sufferers.

It is also important to include other groups of tumours which are unique to the head and neck region, such as malignant salivary gland tumours and odontogenic tumours. Whilst much less common, many of these have significant potential for application of molecular diagnostics and therapeutics, albeit with developments proceeding at a slower pace.

Other approaches include identification of transcriptomic signatures in tissues or cytological specimens. However, numerous studies comparing expression patterns in normal and SCC tissues have been published which demonstrate marked heterogeneity and lack of agreement. The possible reasons for this are beyond the scope of this chapter, but are discussed elsewhere [40]. In bringing together the large number of microarray studies, Lallemant and co-workers selected 9 genes from 23 published HNSCC transcriptome studies [41].
