Modulation of EGFR by oral squamous cell carcinoma cell lines.

Author information

  • 1University of California, San Francisco, USA.


Oral cancer is the sixth most frequent cancer worldwide. Prognosis for these patients remains poor. Recently, the epidermal growth factor receptor has been targeted as an adjunct to radiotherapy and surgery with limited success. The authors now present data suggesting that the alphanubeta6 integrin, which is a marker for aggressive oral cancer, may regulate epidermal growth factor receptor expression. The authors suggest perhaps targeting both alphanubeta6 and EGFR may provide additional benefits.
