Abstract

We sincerely appreciate Mark T. L. TAN and his co-workers for their comments “The Hunt for the Perfect Biomarker in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma—the RRAS “race” beyond Epstein-Barr virus?” on our study titled “Identification of RRAS gene related to nasopharyngeal carcinoma based on pathway and network-based analyses”. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an endemic tumor closely associated with Epstein barr virus (EBV) (1).
