Immune microenvironment of the gene signature reflecting the standardised uptake value on 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma

ConclusionHNSC exhibited the distinct TIM according to the gene signature reflecting SUVmax on18F-FDG PET/CT. Our results support an understanding of the close relationship between FDG uptake and tumor immune response, and suggest that18F-FDG PET/CT could be clinically usable as a biomarker for assisting immunotherapy.
