BACKGROUND Oral leukoplakia (OL) is the best-known potentially malignant disorder of oral cancer. The hypothesis was tested that DNA content abnormality may contribute to risk prediction of malignant potential of OL. METHODS All OLs were staged according to a clinicopathologic classification and OL-staging system. DNA content status was investigated in a blinded prospective series of OL using brush biopsy with image cytometry, and examined the correlation of DNA content with the… CONTINUE READING
