Desmocollin expression in oral atrophic lichen planus correlates with clinical behavior and DNA content.


BACKGROUND Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic mucocutaneous inflammatory disease, with some tendency toward malignant transformation. Markers are needed to identify the lesions at risk. METHODS A series of 82 biopsies from 70 patients with atrophic OLP was analyzed for desmocollin-1, E-cadherin, cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (cdk-1) and Rad-51 expression… (More)
