The purpose of the investigation was to compare the morphology of fibroblasts cultured from healthy oral mucosa and mucosa of patients with oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) and to collate the occurrence of cell types of similar morphology. Cells cultured from biopsy specimens from the buccal mucosa of six subjects who did not chew the areca nut and six patients with OSF who chewed areca nut were grown according to standard techniques. Ninety cells per cell line were recorded daily for 8 days… CONTINUE READING
