Abstract

Haemoglobin concentrations and tumour-pO2 were evaluated pre-therapy in 30 patients with head and neck cancers. Anterior tibialis muscle-pO2 was additionally measured in 16 of these patients. Tumour-pO2 was lower in the most anaemic patients (P=0.032) and correlated with muscle-pO2 (r=0.809, P<0.001). These results suggest that haemoglobin concentration influences tumour-oxygenation. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
