After an overview of cancer and its theories, classification, causes, epidemiology, diagnosis, pathology, and selected types and symptoms, chapters describe the etiology, signs and symptoms, epidemiology, sex and age distribution, pathology, staging, and individual cancers of the oral cavity; proliferative and apoptotic signaling in oral cancer; apoptotic regulations; the dynamics of the apoptotic marker p53 in oral cancer and how its dysregulation plays a role in cancer growth; the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of p53; the expression, regulation, and therapeutics of the anti-apoptotic protein survivin; and the molecular diagnosis of oral cancer.
10-14) Studies by Croft and Cotton (8) (1973), Hall et al (9) (1994), Nagata and Golstein (7) (1995), Lin et al (10) (1998), Palejwala and Watson (11) (2000), Maiuri et al (14) (2001), Ciccocioppo et al (13) (2002), and Miura et al (12) (2005) have identified the role of extrinsic apoptotic pathway activation in the mucosa of patients with celiac disease.
Apoptosis is classically signalled by two major apoptotic pathways (12) (Figure 2): the extrinsic pathway (also called the death receptor caspase-8 mediated pathway) and the intrinsic pathway (also called mitochondria-initiated caspase-9 pathway).
