BACKGROUND: Oral leukoplakia concomitant with oral submucous fibrosis is a high-risk oral potentially malignant disorder, but little is known about its immune microenvironment. METHODS: Thirty samples of oral leukoplakia concomitant with oral submucous fibrosis, 30 oral leukoplakia samples, and 30 oral submucous fibrosis samples were collected from two hospitals. Immunohistochemistry was performed to analyze expression of T cell biomarkers [CD3, CD4, CD8, and Forkhead box P3 (Foxp3)], a B cell biomarker (CD20), macrophage biomarkers (CD68 and CD163), an immune inhibitory receptor ligand (PD-L1), and Ki-67...

BACKGROUND: The ABO and Rh systems are the most commonly used blood-group systems used to classify blood group globally. A number of studies have shown that ABO blood groups may be associated with an increased serum cholesterol levels which in turn may be related to the presence of oral Fordyce spots or granules. Oral Fordyce's granules are ectopic sebaceous glands within the oral cavity and are visible through epithelium. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between ABO and Rhesus blood groups and the presence of oral Fordyce's granules and serum cholesterols level by gender...

BACKGROUND: Subgemmal neurogenous plaques (SNP) are composed of neural structures found in the posterolateral portion of the tongue, rarely biopsied as most of them are asymptomatic or eventually only clinically managed. We aimed to investigate a case series of possible correlation of symptomatic subgemmal neurogenous plaque (SNP) with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). METHODS: Eleven formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded cases from patients with previous confirmed COVID-19 (by RT-PCR) were retrieved from two pathology files...

Soft tissue tumours (STT) are a heterogeneous group of benign, malignant, and intermediate/borderline mesenchymal tumours. In the oral and maxillofacial region, less than 3% of all lesions correspond to benign STT and <1% are sarcomas. Overlapping microscopic features may lead to quite challenging diagnostic processes. Translocations and fusion genes are frequent, and type-specific genetic alterations are detected in these tumours. The detection of such alterations by classic cytogenetic, FISH, RT-PCR or NGS can help to define the diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: EP300 is considered to be a cancer suppressor gene that plays a role in tumor development, but some studies have reported that it is not an oral squamous cell carcinoma suppressor gene, because there was neither epigenetic inactivation of the gene nor a mutation resulting in functional impairment. However, there is no relevant study on whether EP300 is the exact carcinogenic effect and its mechanisms of carcinogenic effects in oral squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS: Western Blot Analysis and Quantitative Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction experiments verified the protein and mRNA expression of EP300 in oral squamous cell carcinoma; The effects of EP300 knockout on glucose consumption and lactic acid production were detected by glycolysis experiments; The relationship between pathway related proteins and EP300 was verified by bioinformatics analysis and co immunoprecipitation experiment ...

BACKGROUND: Oral candidiasis occasionally occurs in patients with oral lichen planus (OLP) or lichenoid reaction (OLR). However, not all patients undergoing corticosteroid therapy develop Candida superinfection. Thus, identification of prognostic risk factors may help to identify patients at risk of Candida superinfection. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted to review patients with OLP/OLR who received steroid therapy at a single dental hospital between January 2016 and December 2021...

OBJECTIVE: Dysregulation of the hypoxia-aerobic system has been postulated in various malignancies. Nonetheless, the contribution of hypoxia to oral carcinogenesis is yet to be elucidated. Understanding this mechanism is important for improving diagnostic tools and targeted therapies. This study aimed to assess the dysregulation of hypoxia-related factors during different stages of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) development. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-two patients diagnosed clinically with oral leukoplakia or OSCC were included and classified according to their histopathological diagnoses...

BACKGROUND: Oral and/or oropharyngeal cancers account for approximately 2% of all malignancies, with variation across age groups, genders, and geographic locations. Treatments for oral and/or oropharyngeal cancers usually consists of a combination of surgical excision most commonly followed by radiotherapy +/- chemotherapy and/or immunotherapy/biotherapy depending on the nature of the malignancy. The significant morbidity caused by high dose radiotherapy to the head and neck region is widely observed...

BACKGROUND: Oral cancer, predominantly squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), is a lethal and deforming disease of rising incidence. Although largely preventable by eliminating harmful tobacco and alcohol risk factor behaviour, five-year survival rates remain around 50%, primarily due to late presentation of advanced stage disease. Whilst low socio-economic status, regional and remote location and Indigenous status are associated with head and neck cancer in general, detailed incidence and demographic data for oral SCC in Australia are limited...

BACKGROUND: Although nerve involvement can predict recurrence and prognosis in oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCC), there still have controversies and limitations regarding the standardization for its detection. In this study we explore the impact of neural invasion in OSCC prognosis, comparing intraneural invasion (INI, tumor cells inside nerve structure) and perineural invasion (PNI, cells involving the nerve, but not invading its sheath). METHODS: Surgical slides stained with hematoxylin and eosin from 235 patients with OSCC were carefully verified for the presence of INI and PNI...

The increase of the incidence of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) dependent oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) is alarming, although we have greatly progressed in the classification and staging of this disease. We now know that OPSCC-HPV+ is a sub-type of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma with favourable prognosis and good response to therapy that needs a proper system of classification and staging. Thus, in routine practice it is essential to test patients for the presence of HPV. The most popular technique to assess HPV status is immunohistochemistry on biopsy samples with p16, which is an excellent surrogate for high-risk HPV infection...

BACKGROUND: Oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma tends to metastasize to cervical lymphatic nodes early which leads to a 50% drop of survival rate. CXCL1 could be secreted by LNMTca8113 cell induced lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) and promoted LNMTca8113 cell migration. The current study aimed to further explore the effect of CXCL1 on the proliferation and migration abilities of tongue cancer cells and the prognostic value of serum CXCL1 in OTSCC. METHODS: Cell proliferation and migration ability were analyzed by CCK8 assays and transwell migration assays...

BACKGROUND: Oral leukoplakia (OL) is one of the most prevalent oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMD). Although there is emerging evidence that quality of life (QoL) is impaired in subjects with OL; studies to date are based on single and heterogenous point-in-time assessments. The aim of this study was to ascertain if QoL scores change over time in individuals diagnosed with OL. METHODS: Forty-one individuals with OL were administered the Short Generic Health Questionnaire (SF-12) and the discipline-specific Oral Potentially Malignant Disorder Questionnaire (OPMDQ) at four points in time: at the time of clinical diagnosis, at the post-biopsy review (confirmed diagnosis), and at 3- and 6-month follow-up appointments...
