Detection of Head and Neck Cancer Using Hypermethylated Gene Detection
Methods and kits for detection of a cell proliferative disorder, such as head and neck cancer are provided utilizing analysis of the methylation state of targeted genes or regulatory regions of genes in a saliva or serum sample are described. The presence of hypermethylation of the genes or their regulatory regions is indicative of the presence, or a stronger possibility of recurrence and or a poorer prognosis in subjects with cancer.
