OBJECTIVES We aimed to elucidate the molecular pathways associated with fluorescence properties of oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMD) visualised under direct tissue autofluorescence (VELscope(™)). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-two oral mucosal biopsies correlated with clinical fluorescence characteristics were categorised based on histopathological diagnosis. Four oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), 15 oral epithelial dysplasia (OED), nine oral lichen planus (OLP) and 14 oral… CONTINUE READING
