Background Suggestions for the improvement to the AJCC/UICC staging system (7th Edition) had been previously proposed by the Hong Kong group [Anne W.M Lee et al. The strength/weakness of the AJCC/UICC staging system (7th edition) for nasopharyngeal cancer and suggestions for future improvement. Oral Oncology 48 (2012) 1007-1013]. However, it has not been validated in external study populations.Aim:The aim of this study is to validate the new staging system through a retrospective review of patients treated at a single centre in Singapore.Methods and materials:195 NPC patients were treated using IMRT (+/- chemotherapy) between 2002 and 2005 at the National Cancer Centre Singapore. They were originally staged with MRI using the AJCC/UICC staging system (7th Edition). All the patients were restaged using the proposed staging system from Hong Kong, and five year overall survival rates were compared.Results:As data analysis is still ongoing, all results and findings will be presented at the conference.
