OBJECTIVES Laser-scanning microscopy (LSM) was used to compare taste buds and epithelia of fungiform papillae of healthy subjects with those of patients suffering from taste disorders during/after radiochemotherapy (RCT). Aim of the study was to investigate effects responsible for taste loss at a microscopic level. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. METHODS Data from 12 healthy subjects (mean age 52.4, SD 9.5 years) were compared with those of 12 patients (mean age 54.7, SD 8.5 years) with… CONTINUE READING
