1. The Risk Factor: Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
James Smerq, Mukta Sharma
Abstract
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a tumor arising from the epithelial cells that cover the surface and line the Nasopharynx. Although NPC is a rare malignancy in the world, it is endemic in a few well-defined populations. In 2002, ∼80,000 incident cases of nasopharyngeal cancer were diagnosed worldwide and the estimated number of deaths exceeded 50,000 and recorded as the 23rd most common new cancer in the world. Well-established risk factors for NPC include elevated antibody titers against the Epstein-Barr virus, consumption of salt-preserved fish, a family history of NPC and certain human leukocyte antigen class I genotypes. Consumption of other preserved foods, tobacco smoking and a history of chronic respiratory tract conditions may be associated with elevated NPC risk however, consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables and other human leukocyte antigen genotypes may be associated with decreased risk. Evidence for a causal role of various inhalants, herbal medicines and occupational exposures is inconsistent. Other than dietary modification, there are no concrete preventive measures for NPC exist. Unresolved gaps given in understanding of NPC, there is a clear need for large-scale, population-based molecular epidemiologic studies to elucidate how environmental, viral, and genetic factors interact in both the development and the prevention of this disease.
