Oral and oropharyngeal cancer together constitute the sixth most common cancer worldwide, with over 400,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Early detection is paramount, as the 5-year survival rate for these cancers decreases markedly once tumors have become regionally invasive. In many tissues, including oral epithelia, neoplastic progression is accompanied(More)
Cobalt and nickel oxide cluster cations, Co(x)O(y)(+) and Ni(x)O(y)(+), are produced by laser vaporization of metal rods in a pulsed nozzle cluster source and detected using time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The mass spectra show prominent stoichiometries of x = y for Co(x)O(y)(+) along with x = y and x = y - 1 for Ni(x)O(y)(+). The cluster cations are mass(More)
