An Insight into Oral Leukoplakia
TLDR
It can be concluded that HPV-16 infection is a risk factor for malignant change in leukoplakia regardless of the harmful effects that tobacco smoke and alcohol might have on oral mucosa.
Management of Premalignant Disease of the Oral Mucosa
TLDR
Oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMDs) have been defined as ‘a morphologically altered tissue in which cancer is more likely to occur than in its apparently normal counterpart’ and a risk assessment tool for head and neck cancer is shown.
An Investigation into the Efficacy of Interventional Therapy for Oral Potentially Malignant Disorders. Population Studies from North-East England
TLDR
Evidence is lacking, however, that intervention halts the progress of carcinogenesis, and multi-centre, prospective, randomized, controlled trials are needed to confirm the efficacy of interventional surgery, to characterise PMD natural history and to disseminate research findings.

Malignant transformation of oral leukoplakia: systematic review and meta-analysis of the last 5 years.
TLDR
It is necessary to continue to conduct well-designed prospective clinicopathological studies on OL, using a uniform definition for OL to reduce the risk of bias for evaluating various factors associated with the MT.
EVALUATION OF SERUM IRON AND FOLATE LEVELS IN PATIENTS WITH ORAL LEUKOPLAKIA
TLDR
There was a significant increase in the serum iron level than the oral leukoplakia patients, however, nosignificant differences seen in serum folate level in these three groups.
Screening and Diagnostic Aids of Oral Potentially Malignant Disorders
TLDR
The term potentially malignant disorders was recommended at a workshop coordinated by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Oral Cancer and Precancer in UK for the Precancerous lesions of the oral mucosa and was called so as it conveys that not all disorders described under this term may transform into cancer.
Etiology of oral cancer revisited
TLDR
Prevention by educating public regarding ill effects of tobacco and excess alcohol consumption, political will in reducing the availability of these products, screening and monitoring will help in reduced the incidence of oral cancer.
Potentially Malignant Disorders of the Oral Cavity
A proportion of oral cancers stem from preexisting oral potentially malignant disorders. These are a group of disorders whose natural history is not clearly characterized but there is sufficient

Effective management of smoking in an oral dysplasia clinic in London.
TLDR
Smoking cessation needs to be an integral component of management of cases attending a dysplasia clinic and referring to smoker's clinics could help to improve the effectiveness of managing patients with oral precancer to quit smoking.

TLDR
The estimated odds ratio showed that none of the associated variables including presence of any degree of epithelial dysplasia in the whole lesion, site, demarcation and smoking had influence on the risk of malignant development.
A Review of the Nonsurgical Treatment of Oral Leukoplakia
TLDR
R randomized controlled trials for nonsurgical treatment of oral leukoplakia demonstrate no evidence of effective treatment in preventing malignant transformation and recurrence, and it reinforces that even after clinical resolution, OL should be regularly followed.

TLDR
The terminology presented in this report reflects the best understanding of multi-step carcinogenesis in the oral mucosa, and aspires to engender consistency in use.
Oral epithelial dysplasia classification systems: predictive value, utility, weaknesses and scope for improvement.
TLDR
The Working Group considered the two class classification and was of the view that reducing the number of choices from 3 to 2 may increase the likelihood of agreement between pathologists, and the utility of this need to be tested in future studies.
