SINOPSIS

Head and neck cancers are deadly diseases that are diagnosed annually in approximately half a million individuals worldwide. Growing evidence supporting a role for cancer stem cells (CSCs) in the pathobiology of head and neck cancers has led to increasing interest in identifying therapeutics to target these cells. Apart from the canonical tumor-suppressor functions of p53, emerging research supports a significant role for this protein in physiological stem cell and CSC maintenance and reprogramming. Therefore, p53 has become a promising target to sensitize head and neck CSCs to chemotherapy. In this review, we highlight the role of p53 in stem cell maintenance and discuss potential implications of targeting p53 to treat patients with head and neck cancers.
