New study identifies genetic markers linked to oral cancer
Dental researchers have identified genetic markers in saliva that could aid in the detection of oral cancer, according to a study published online in the journal Clinical Cancer Research .
Markers, called microRNAs, are molecules produced in cells that have the ability to simultaneously control activity and evaluate the behavior of multiple genes. The researchers believe that these markers could be the key to the early detection of cancer. The appearance of a microRNA profile in saliva represents a major step towards the early detection of oral cancer.
