Objectives: While the crucial role of epigenetics in cancer is now being realized, this field has not yet been exploited for clinical benefit in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Our objective was to evaluate the biomarker possibilities of DNA promoter methylation.

Patients: Seventy-nine patients with HNSCC undergoing surgical resection.
