Increased nitric oxide levels and iNOS over-expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Abstract

Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is responsible for generating high levels of nitric oxide (NO) in tissues. Increased iNOS expression has been demonstrated in a number of carcinomas including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). However, iNOS levels have not been evaluated specifically in oral cavity SCC, or in the precancerous lesions that… (More)
