Oral epithelial dysplasia classification systems: predictive value, utility, weaknesses and scope for improvement.
At a workshop coordinated by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Oral Cancer and Precancer in the United Kingdom issues related to potentially malignant disorders of the oral cavity were discussed by anExpand

New malignancy grading is a better prognostic indicator than Broders' grading in oral squamous cell carcinomas.
The prognostic value of histopathologic grading of oral squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) has varied from not any to highly significant. We have retrospectively studied all (130) SCCs registered inExpand

The p53 molecule and its prognostic role in squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck.
Despite intense research, the 5-year survival rate for patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) is still low. Several different factors have been studied in the search forExpand

Genetic and epigenetic alterations of the blood group ABO gene in oral squamous cell carcinoma
Loss of histo‐blood group A and B antigen expression is a frequent event in oral carcinomas and is associated with decreased activity of glycosyltransferases encoded by the ABO gene. We examined 30Expand

Molecular markers in the surgical margin of oral carcinomas.
BACKGROUND Local or regional lymph node recurrence is the most common pattern of treatment failure in oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The local recurrence rate is 30% even when the surgicalExpand

Molecular profiling of tumour budding implicates TGFβ-mediated epithelial-mesenchymal transition as a therapeutic target in oral squamous cell carcinoma.
Although tumour budding is an adverse prognostic factor for many cancer types, the molecular mechanisms governing this phenomenon are incompletely understood. Therefore, understanding the molecularExpand

ABO Blood-group Antigens in Oral Cancer
Tumor progression is often associated with altered glycosylation of the cell-surface proteins and lipids. The peripheral part of these cell-surface glycoconjugates often carries carbohydrateExpand

Significance of myofibroblasts in oral squamous cell carcinoma.
It is now recognized that the tumor microenvironment makes significant contribution to tumor progression. Activated fibroblast endothelial cells, inflammatory cells, and various extra cellular matrixExpand
