Aim and Objective

The aim of the study is to identify the microbiological speciation of aerobic bacteria in patients undergoing treatment for oral malignancy.


Cancer patients remain at substantial risk for developing serious infections despite significant advances in cancer therapy and supportive care. Moreover, the oral cavity infections in cancer patients usually result from the combination of neutropenia and mucositis. In any cases of infection involving the oral cavity, the oral micro flora may be subsequently replaced by potentially pathogenic microorganisms. Hence, the aim of this study was to determine infectious pathogens in oral cavity of oral cancer patients undergoing different treatment protocols.


To create awareness about the side effects of the treatment protocols in cancer treatment so as to stipulate a harmless treatment.



Bactera, buccal mucosa carcinoma, carcinoma of tongue, Microbes.
