  • Nasopharyngeal Case-Control Study

    A case-control study conducted in Taiwan between 1991-1994 among approximately 1,000 individuals to examine the role of viral, environmental, and genetic factors associated with the development of nasopharyngeal carcinoma

  • Nasopharyngeal Family Study

    A family study in Taiwan to elucidate genetic factors linked to the development of nasopharyngeal cancer
