Our previous studies showed that higher levels of S100A14 reduces proliferation and motility/invasion (tumor suppressive function) of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) cells. In this study, using OSCC biopsies from Norway and Nepal, we aimed to examine whether the level of S100A14 protein can predict aggressiveness of OSCC and thereby survival of OSCC patients.
In a recent study, the assumption to be tested was that variation in aquaporin genes in combination with certain dietary preferences and oral hygiene habits contribute to different susceptibility to dental erosive wear.
