    ..The data suggested that miR-184 is linked to the pathogenesis of tongue SCC. Further studies are warranted to evaluate the use of microRNA-based serological markers in monitoring tongue SCC. ..

    ..DNA methylation is a potential regulatory pathway, which is affected when let-7 is suppressed in NPC cells. However, the extent of DNA hypermethylation/hypomethylation in regulating let-7 expression requires further elucidation. ..

    Wong T, Chan W, Li C, Liu R, Tang W, Tsao S, et al. Curcumin alters the migratory phenotype of nasopharyngeal carcinoma cells through up-regulation of E-cadherin. Anticancer Res. 2010;30:2851-6 pubmed
    ..The negative correlation of NF-kappaB and E-cadherin was confirmed in the mouse xenograft model. Our results suggest that curcumin could be used in preventing NPC migration by suppressing NF-kappaB and activating E-cadherin expression. ..
