Oral carcinogenesis, a multistep process with multifaceted etiology, arises due to accumulation of heterogeneous genetic changes in the genes involved in the basic cellular functions including cell division, differentiation, and cell death. These genetic changes in the affected cell progressively increase the cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and inhibition(More)
Oral cancer, the fifth most frequent cancer worldwide, is a major health problem and accounts for highest morbidity and mortality in human populations. This form of cancer accounts for 40-50% of all cancers in developing countries including India. Despite recent advancement in the treatment, imaging and diagnosis of oral carcinoma, a 5-year survival and(More)
We present a theoretical analysis of the band-edge exciton structure in nanometer-size crystallites of direct semiconductors with a cubic lattice structure or a hexagonal lattice structure which can be described within the framework of a quasicubic model. The lowest energy exciton, eightfold degenerate in spherically symmetric dots, is split into five(More)
Carcinogen induced mutation in somatic cells leads to genetic instability, which is considered as an important facet of carcinogenesis. Agents that inhibit DNA adduct formation, stimulate DNA repair mechanisms, and possess antioxidant functions are considered as antigenotoxic agents. Genistein, the major isoflavone of soy products, protects animals against(More)
The present study has investigated the antigenotoxic effect of withaferin-A, a steroidal lactone obtained from the roots and leaves of Withania somnifera, in 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA)-induced genotoxicity. Measurement of the frequency of micronucleated polychromatic erythrocytes (MnPCEs) and chromosomal aberrations is used as cytogenetic(More)
Our aim was to investigate the effect of Withaferin-A on bone marrow micronucleus frequency and buccal mucosa detoxication agents during 7, 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) induced hamster buccal pouch carcinogenesis. Oral squamous cell carcinoma was developed in hamsters' buccal pouches by painting 0.5% DMBA in liquid paraffin, three times per week for(More)
Investigation of expression pattern of molecular markers in oral epithelial tissues would help to assess the cell differentiation and proliferation as well as early diagnosis of precancerous and cancerous lesions of the oral cavity. Aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of berberine on expression pattern of apoptotic, cell(More)
AIM   The relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease is well established. It has been shown that advanced glycation end-products might exert noxious effects on several tissues of the body through its receptor. Evidence for the role of receptors of advanced glycation end-products in periodontal disease for diabetes is limited, and their presence(More)
AIM The quest to identify an accurate method of age estimation, had lead to the evaluation of aspartic acid racemisation in hard tissues of the human remains using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Our study is aimed at the applicability of the racemisation technique to use dentin as the sample to estimate the age in South Indian(More)
