To identify the salivary biomarkers for oral cancer

Objective

To do a review about salivary biomarkers of oral cancer to help in early diagnosis of oral cancer.

Background

Oral cancer refers to all malignancies that arise in oral cavity, lips and pharynx with most of the oral cancers being oral squamous cell carcinoma. Even though we have medical advancements the mortality rate due to oral cancer is pretty high and this is mostly because of the late diagnosis. Saliva is an important tool for drug monitoring and diagnosing the systemic diseases like oral cancer. The current technological advancements in molecular biology has led to the discovery of new molecular markers such as DNA, RNA and Protein markers which helps in diagnosis of oral cancer.

Reason

To study about salivary biomarkers to help in early detection or diagnosis of oral cancer.
