Head Neck Pathol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

The Ohio State University, 305 W. 12 Ave, Columbus, OH, 43210, USA.

Erythematous lesions of the oral mucosa are common and can reflect a variety of conditions, ranging from benign reactive or immunologically-mediated disorders to malignant disease. Together with vascular abnormalities, which can vary from reddish to bluish-purple in color, the differential diagnosis for erythematous oral mucosal change is quite diverse. This review focuses on salient clinical features and histopathologic findings of selected conditions which clinically present as red or vascular-like oral mucosal alterations, including oral vascular malformations and neoplasms, pyogenic granuloma, localized juvenile spongiotic gingival hyperplasia, denture stomatitis, benign migratory glossitis (geographic tongue), orofacial granulomatosis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener granulomatosis), megaloblastic anemia, and erythroplakia.

Identification of oncogenic long noncoding RNAs CASC9 and LINC00152 in oral carcinoma through genome-wide comprehensive analysis.

Anticancer Drugs 2018 Dec 12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Oral carcinoma (OC) is the major cancer type in the head and neck region; however, the molecular mechanisms of its pathogenesis and progression remain poorly understood. In recent years, the long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been uncovered as critical regulators in the development and progression of multiple human cancers, but most of the lncRNAs expression patterns, clinical relevance, and biological functions in OC are still unclear. To better understand the significance of lncRNAs in OC carcinogenesis, we analyzed the expression levels of lncRNAs between OC and healthy oral mucosa using The Cancer Genome Atlas Cancer Genome RNA sequencing data and another three independent microarray datasets from Gene Expression Omnibus.

Comparison three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy versus intensity modulated radiation therapy in local control of head and neck cancer.

J Cancer Res Ther 2018 Oct-Dec;14(6):1412-1417

Department of Radiotherapy, Chirayu Medical College and Hospital, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India.

Background: About 74% of head and neck cancer (HNC) patients need to undergo either definitive or postoperative radiation therapy because of aggressive nature of disease. The transition from two-dimensional conventional radiotherapy to three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) and further technological evolutions led to the successful clinical implementation of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), which constitutes an evolution of 3D-CRT. The IMRT technique gives the ability to create treatment fields with varying beam intensity using inverse planning and optimization algorithms to treat irregularly shaped target volumes with high precision.

Stem Cell/Cell Culture Unit, Center For Advance Research, King George's Medical University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Background: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is usually preceded by clinically visible changes on oral mucosa categorized as oral potentially malignant disorders (OPMD). The progression of OPMD to OSCC is a multistep process that provides an opportunity for early cancer detection and interception. Recent research suggests that cancer stem cells (CSC) hold the key to unlocking effective strategies to curb initiation and growth of several malignant neoplasms, including OSCC. Read More

Concentric Ring Probe for Bioimpedance Spectroscopic Measurements: Design and Ex Vivo Feasibility Testing on Pork Oral Tissues.

Sensors (Basel) 2018 Oct 10;18(10). Epub 2018 Oct 10.

SIB Labs, Department of Applied Physics, University of Eastern Finland, P.O. Box 1627, FI-70211 Kuopio, Finland.

Many oral diseases, such as oral leukoplakia and erythroplakia, which have a high potential for malignant transformations, cause abnormal structural changes in the oral mucosa. These changes are clinically assessed by visual inspection and palpation despite their poor accuracy and subjective nature. We hypothesized that non-invasive bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) might be a viable option to improve the diagnostics of potentially malignant lesions. Read More

Immunohistochemical differentiation between spindle cell lipoma and neurofibroma of oral cavity using CD34 and SOX10.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2018 Oct-Dec;61(4):561-563

Department of Dentistry, SP Medical College, Bikaner, Rajasthan, India.

Spindle cell lipoma (SCL), also called as pleomorphic adenoma, is a rare variant of lipoma histopathologically characterized by an admixture of mature fat cells with spindle cells and occasionally mast cells with myxoid connective tissue stroma and thick bends of birefringent collagen. Although buccal mucosa is the most common location for oral lipomas, for SCL, it is an exceedingly rare location. We report a case of an asymptomatic swelling of buccal mucosa that simulated the features of neurofibroma on histopathological examination, and the final diagnosis of SCL was made on the basis of immunohistochemical features.

[Colorectal cancer susceptibility genetic variants in tumor free and colorectal carcinoma bearing Hungarian population. Individual predisposition to cancer].

Orv Hetil 2018 Oct;159(40):1614-1623

Országos Onkológiai Intézet Budapest, Ráth Gy. u. 7-9., 1122.

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) using population-based designs have identified many genetic loci, at which common variants can influence the risk of developing the sporadic colon cancers. These are single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located on different chromosomes, close to genes involved in cancer developing process, and the SNPs modify their functions, and as a consequence the cancer risk is increased. Our aim was to provide frequency distributions data of variable (risk) allele of six independent SNPs in patients with colorectal cancers and in control Hungarian population, predicting the increased risk effect of sequence variant of SNPs.

Photobiomodulation is associated with a decrease in cell viability and migration in oral squamous cell carcinoma.

Lasers Med Sci 2018 Sep 19. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Biophotonics Applied to Health Sciences Postgraduate Program, Nove de Julho University - UNINOVE, 235/249 Vergueiro Street, São Paulo, 01504-001, Brazil.

The treatment of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) involves surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiotherapy, which can cause mucositis (inflammation of the oral mucosa that causes considerable pain and can compromise the continuity of oncological treatment). Photobiomodulation (PBM) has been successfully used in the treatment of mucositis, but doubts arise regarding the use of laser for areas in which tumor cells may remain. In this study, the effect of PBM on the viability, mitochondrial activity, proliferation, apoptosis, and migration of cells derived from oral SCC was evaluated. Read More
