E-GEOD-13597 - Transcription profiling of human biopsies of Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and non-malignant controls
Submitted on 13 November 2008, released on 10 November 2009, last updated on 1 May 2014
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common cancer in southern China and South East Asia where more than 50,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. We used microarrays to identify down or upregulated genes in NPC compared with non-malignant controls. Experiment Overall Design: Snap frozen nasopharyngeal biopsies from 25 patients with histologically confirmed undifferentiated NPC were included in the microarray analysis. Controls were obtained from 3 patients with no evidence of malignancy.
