  • The present study was carried out to assess the cytoplasmic diameter and nuclear diameters of normal buccal mucous membrane in different age groups of khaini chewers. The study group consisted of 105 khaini chewers and 105 age and sex matched controls with no history of tobacco chewing/smoking. They were sub divided into 3 groups each, less than 25 years of age (Group – I), 25 -50 years of age (Group – II) and more than 50 years of age (Group – III). The buccal epithelial cells of these… CONTINUE READING
