Transepithelial electrical(More)
OBJECTIVE Oral mucosa is a physiological barrier against several exogenous stimuli, among which cigarette smoke represents a source of reactive oxidizing compounds. No morphological evidences exist on the smoke effects induced in the human oral epithelium. In this study we performed a preliminary light and transmission electron microscopy morphological(More)
CONTEXT Human oral mucosa is the combustion chamber of cigarette, but scanty evidence is available about the early smoke effects. OBJECTIVE The present work aimed at evaluating from a morphological point of view whole smoke early effects on epithelial intercellular adhesion and keratinocyte terminal differentiation in a three-dimensional model of human(More)
