Similar squamous cell carcinoma epithelium microRNA expression in never smokers and ever smokers
(Public Library of Science, 2015-11-06)
The incidence of oral tumors in patients who never used mutagenic agents such as tobacco is increasing. In an effort to better understand these tumors we studied microRNA (miRNA) expression in tumor epithelium of never ...
FoxM1 mediates the progenitor function of type II epithelial cells in repairing alveolar injury induced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(Rockefeller University Press, 2011-07)
The alveolar epithelium is composed of the flat type I cells comprising 95% of the gas-exchange surface area and cuboidal type II cells comprising the rest. Type II cells are described as facultative progenitor cells based ...
Effects of green tea on miRNA and microbiome of oral epithelium
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018-04-12)
Consumption of green tea (GT) extracts or purified catechins has shown the ability to prevent oral and other cancers and inhibit cancer progression in rodent models, but the evidence for this in humans is mixed. Working ...
Analysis of RNA from Brush Cytology Detects Changes in B2M, CYP1B1 and KRT17 Levels with OSCC in Tobacco Users
RNA expression analysis of oral keratinocytes can be used to detect early oral cancer but a limitation is the inability to obtain high quality RNA from oral tissue without using biopsies. While oral cytology cell samples ...
Looking in the Mouth for Noninvasive Gene Expression-Based Methods to Detect Oral, Oropharyngeal, and Systemic Cancer
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012-09)
Noninvasive diagnosis, whether by sampling body fluids, body scans, or other technique, has the potential to simplify early cancer detection. A classic example is Pap smear screening, which has helped to reduce cervical ...
