Conclusions. In the treatment of oropharyngeal cancers, possible metastases to retropharyngeal lymph nodes (RPLNs) should be taken into account, especially in tumors arising in the lateral wall and/or posterior wall. Patients with multiple positive neck nodes must have intensified adjuvant therapy, especially when they have extracapsular spread (ECS). Objective. To develop optimal treatment strategies for oropharyngeal cancers, we retrospectively analyzed the lymph node metastases of oropharynge...

Objective The mammalian olfactory neuroepithelium (OE), which harbors olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs), has the unusual characteristic of continuous neurogenesis throughout its lifetime. This unique feature provides an excellent model for neuronal differentiation. Recently, we found dual-phase expression of NeuroD, a member of the basic helix–loop–helix transcription factor family, in the developing mouse OE, suggesting multiple roles of NeuroD during the development of mammalian ORNs.
