Featured Article: Outcomes for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma presenting with N3 nodal disease
The treatment options for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma with N3 nodal disease (N3 HNSCC) are controversial due to the limited inclusion of N3 HNSCC patient populations in randomized controlled trials. It is therefore difficult to determine optimal treatment regimens for such cancers; furthermore it has been demonstrated that institutional patterns of care can influence the clinical management of N3 HNSCC.
In this research article, M. Witek et al., retrospectively analyze different treatment approaches to evaluate the long-term outcomes of patients with N3 HNSCC.

Aims and scope
Cancers of the Head & Neck is an open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing articles on pre-clinical and translational research, as well as research related to the clinical management of head and neck cancers. This includes cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, paranasal sinuses, nasal cavity and salivary glands. Articles related to the etiology, pathophysiology, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship of these cancers are all considered.
Call for papers: Translational oncology
We are pleased to announce that a number of BioMed Central journals have come together to create a new cross-journal series on translational oncology.
Guest Edited by Prof Tommaso Dragani (Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, Italy), the series is now accepting submissions of research articles that provide important developments in cancer research. Preclinical studies should provide a significant advance in knowledge, and have clear potential for strong clinical impact.
