|Abstract:||A total of 363 cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in Singapore were classified into squamous cell carcinoma (SCC; 73 cases), non-keratinizing carcinoma (NKC; 178 cases) and undifferentiated carcinoma (UC; 172 cases). Possible biological differences between these histologic types and between tumors with and without lymphocytic infiltration were investigated by correlations with survival rates and with selected epidemiologic, immunovirologic, and immunogenetic data on the disease. The 5-year survival rates following radiotherapy were 25.3% for all cases and 58.8% for tumors restricted to the nasopharynx. The 5-year survival rate for SCC was poorer than for the combined NKC and UC groups (p|
