    Abstract : Background: Lichen planus is a chronic inflammation of skin and mucosa with unknown cause. Oral Lichen Planus, OLP, affects around 2% of the population. Autoimmunity has been suggested as a possible cause as the disease has autoimmune features such as female predominance, cyclic nature and cytotoxic T-cell infiltrate. READ MORE

    Author : Liv Kroona; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Avhandlingen undersöker karvon (l-karvon), ett mintsmakandearomämne, och hur kontaktallergi mot karvon yttrar sig. Karvonfinns framför allt i grönmynta/spearmint, men aromämnet kan ävenframställas ur limonen, ett citrondoftande parfymämne. READ MORE

  3. 3. Potentially Malignant Disorders and Oral cancer -A study on Immunosurveillance

    Abstract : ABSTRACT The cancer immunosurveillance hypothesis postulates that the immune system can recognize cancer cell precursors and destroy those cells before a clinical manifestation occurs. During the last decades several groups have presented evidence of the influence and role of immune activation in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients; however, much less is known about the role of immune activation in potentially malignant oral disorders (PMOD).

    Abstract : Most oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is believed to develop via a multistep process of cumulative gene damage in epithelial cells. Increasing incidence of OSCC and evidence that traditional risk factors may not be responsible directed us to investigate the prevalence of virus in pre- and malignant samples. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies of p63 and p63 related proteins in patients diagnosed with oral lichen planus

    Author : Majid Ebrahimi; Karin Nylander; Isaac Van der waal; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the oral mucosa and also one of the more common mucosal conditions mostly affecting middle aged individuals. Even though OLP is well investigated the etiology of this disease is still unknown, even if autoimmunity as a possible etiologic factor has been suggested. READ MORE
