BACKGROUND It is hypothesised that cell proliferation, as measured by the Ki-67 labelling index (LI) at the invasive tumour front (ITF) was directly related to the histological grade in human oral squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). METHODS Tissues from 42 human oral SCCs were collected and stained with an antibody directed against the Ki-67 antigen using an advanced polymer staining system. Quantitation of the immunopositive cells was performed on two parallel sections at the invasive tumour… CONTINUE READING
