|Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma||Diagnostic Test: Plasma EBV DNA|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Estimated Enrollment :||1000 participants|
|Official Title:||Serial Epstein-Barr Virus DNA Surveillance During Treatment in Non-metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Patients|
|Estimated Study Start Date :||March 6, 2019|

|Estimated Study Completion Date :||March 1, 2024|
Patients enrolled in this observational cohort would have regular blood taking for EBV DNA examination at baseline, after every cycle of chemotherapy, every week during radiotherapy, and 1-3 months after chemo-radiotherapy until EBV DNA becomes undetectable for at least two times.
Diagnostic Test: Plasma EBV DNA
Parameters analyzed will include (1) the changing pattern of plasma EBV DNA concentrations during chemotherapy and radiotherapy (2) half-life values (t1/2) of plasma EBV DNA clearance rate
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Progression-free survival is calculated from the date of diagnosis of NPC to the date of progression of NPC or the date of death from any cause, whichever comes earlier.
- overall survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Overall survival is calculated from the date of diagnosis of NPC to the date of death from any cause
- Distant metastasis-free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Distant metastasis-free survival is calculated from the date of diagnosis of NPC to the date of distant metastasis or date of death from any cause, whichever comes earlier.
- locoregional failure-free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Local or regional failure-free survival is calculated from the date of diagnosis of NPC to the date of regional nodal failure or date of death from any cause, whichever comes earlier.
- EBV DNA clearance rate [ Time Frame: during the first month ]The half-life value (t1/2) of plasma EBV DNA clearance was calculated using the equation of [t1/2 = 0.693/k].
