Abstract

Quantitative analysis of rat palatal mucosa after the carcinogen 4- nitroquinoline-1-oxide had been applied to the epithelium for varying periods of time showed that there was a significant increase in epithelial thickness, due largely to an increase in thickness of the basal compartment. This alteration was measurable before epithelial dysplasia could be recognised.
