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


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)
