The aim of this study was to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of survivin, ki-67, and p63 in oral leukoplakic lesions, histopathologically differentiated into dysplastic and nondysplastic. A tissue microarray containing 57 samples of biopsies from clinically classified lesions, such as leukoplakia, was immunolabeled for survivin, ki-67, and p63. Samples were scored for percentage of positively stained. Read More
