    The role of cytology in oral lesions: a review of recent improvements.
    Diagn Cytopathol 2012 Jan 25;40(1):73-83. Epub 2011 Mar 25.
    Department of Pathology, Division of Cytopathology, Moti Lal Nehru Medical College, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. com
    Historically, sensitivity and specificity of oral cytology is poor. Using conventional oral cytology for the diagnosis of cancer and its precursors has not had the success that cytologists had hoped for; however, with improved methodology, oral cytology has enjoyed a resurgence of interest. This renewed interest is partly due to the introduction of a specialized brush that collects a full-thickness epithelial sample and not just superficially sloughed cells, as well as analysis of that sample with computer assistance; in addition, a variety of adjunctive techniques have been introduced to potentially enhance the diagnosis of the cytologic specimens including DNA analysis, immunocytochemistry, molecular analysis, and liquid-based preparations.

    Nano-bio-chip sensor platform for examination of oral exfoliative cytology.
    Cancer Prev Res (Phila) 2010 Apr 23;3(4):518-28. Epub 2010 Mar 23.
    Departments of Chemistry and Bioengineering, Rice University, 6100 Main St., Houston, TX 77005, USA.
    Oral cancer is a deadly and disfiguring disease that could greatly benefit from new diagnostic approaches enabling early detection. In this pilot study, we describe a nano-bio-chip (NBC) sensor technique for analysis of oral cancer biomarkers in exfoliative cytology specimens, targeting both biochemical and morphologic changes associated with early oral tumorigenesis. Here, oral lesions from 41 dental patients, along with normal epithelium from 11 healthy volunteers, were sampled using a noninvasive brush biopsy technique. Read More

    Oral cytology revisited.
    J Oral Pathol Med 2009 Feb;38(2):161-6
    Department of Pathology, Moti Lal Nehru Medical College, Allahabad, India.
    During the last decade, oral cytology has once again become the focus of scientific research. This new interest is due to the introduction of a cytobrush for cell collection as well as a computer-assisted analysis (Oral CDx). Although promising, the sensitivity and specificity of conventional oral brush cytology remains limited. Read More

    [Oral cytology: historical development, current status, and perspectives].
    Mund Kiefer Gesichtschir 2007 Jan;11(1):1-9
    Klinik und Poliklinik für Mund-, Kiefer- und Gesichtschirurgie, Klinikum der Universität Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauss-Allee 11, 93053 Regensburg, Germany.
    Oral cytology has aroused new interest caused by introduction of the cytobrush as a sampling device and the use of additional analytical methods. By brushing it is possible to reach deeper layers of the oral mucosa where squamous intraepithelial neoplasia (SIN) begins. The biological potential of the oral epithelial cells obtained can be evaluated by the following additional methods: computer-assisted image analysis (OralCDx), DNA cytometry, immunohistochemistry, monolayer cytology, and molecular biological analysis.

    Evaluation of nuclear morphometry and DNA ploidy status for detection of malignant and premalignant oral lesions: quantitative cytologic assessment and review of methods for cytomorphometric measurements.
    J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2006 Apr;64(4):628-35
    Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Baskent University, Adana Teaching and Medical Research Center, Adana, Turkey.
    Purpose: Detection of a precancerous or cancerous lesion when small is one of the most important factors to improve 5-year survival rates of oral cancer. Although surgical biopsy is the most definitive method for diagnosing oral lesions, it is impractical to routinely subject large numbers of patients to biopsy. Recently, cytomorphometric assessments improved by advanced computer-assisted image analysis systems have gained importance. Read More

    Evaluation of tapered-end toothbrush bristles regarding efficacy of access to occlusal fissures.
    J Clin Dent 2002 ;13(6):225-7
    Department of Endodontics and Operative Dentistry, Asahi University School of Dentistry, Gifu, Japan.
    The purpose of this in vitro study was to determine how two toothbrushes, with a combination of a tapered-end and round-end bristle design (Group A), compared to a conventional toothbrush with only rounded-end bristles (Group B) for cleaning in simulated occlusal fissures on a brushing machine.

    Computer-assisted analysis of the oral brush biopsy.
    Compend Contin Educ Dent 2001 Feb;22(2):99-102, 104, 106; quiz 108
    Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia, USA.
    Computer-assisted analysis of the oral brush biopsy is a recently introduced tool that determines the significance of an oral lesion. The oral brush biopsy is minimally invasive, requires no anesthesia, and definitively distinguishes benign from precancerous and cancerous lesions. Oral brush biopsy specimens are analyzed with the aid of a highly specialized neural network-based computer system specifically designed to detect oral epithelial precancerous and cancerous cells.
