The mutational landscape of early‐ and typical‐onset oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma

January 5, 2021
An international multicenter consortium of investigators, including the Faden lab, conducted the largest study to date a characterizing the somatic mutational landscape of oral tongue cancers from young patients without known risk factors.

Human Papillomavirus in Sinonasal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

January 5, 2021

As described in a new manuscript published in the journal Cancers, 26% of sinonasal squamous cell carcinomas have detectable HPV. Interestingly, HPV prevalence was higher in subsites with high exposure to secretion flow compared to low exposure subsites and HPV prevalence followed the global distribution of HPV+ oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. This manuscript is the largest analysis of HPV in...

Work from the Faden Lab demonstrates the clinical, genomic and viromic landscape of patients with multiple HPV+ head and neck cancers

October 21, 2020

The incidence of HPV related head and neck cancers (HPV+ HNC) is increasing significantly in the United States. Concomitantly, we are now seeing patients present with, or develop, multiple HPV+ HNCs, which previously was not a clinical scenario that was thought to occur. This year The Faden Lab, along with colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt and the National Cancer Institute ...
