Lichen Planus and Oral Cancer Study
* Are you a patient with oral cancer or Oral Lichen Planus?
* If so, you may be eligible for a research study!
What is the purpose of the study?
This study is to explore the possibility of using saliva in an early cancer detection method for certain patients who may be at risk for developing oral cancer.
We will need to collect saliva samples from two types of people; those who have oral squamous cell carcinoma and those who have lichen planus. Analysis of the saliva samples for several particular proteins and chemicals will be performed and the results will be compared among these two groups and a group of normal controls (people who have neither oral cancer nor lichen planus).
