BACKGROUND Oral cancer is one of the most debilitating diseases afflicting mankind. Consumption of tobacco in various forms constitutes one of the most important etiological factors in initiation of oral cancer. When the focus of today's research is to determine early genotoxic changes in human cells, micronucleus (MN) assay provides a simple, yet reliable indicator of genotoxic damage. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To identify and quantify micronuclei in the exfoliated cells of oral mucosa in… CONTINUE READING
