Table 2 The number of positive cases according to the staining patterns in normal oral mucosa, OL without dysplasia, OL with dysplasia and OSCC

From: Overexpression of Epstein-Barr virus-encoded latent membrane protein-1 (LMP-1) in oral squamous cell carcinoma

Tissue type (no. of total cases) Number of positive cases
Nucleus Cytoplasm Nuclear plus cytoplasm
Normal oral mucosa (10) 10 0 2
OL without dysplasia (27) 27 2 2
OL with dysplasia (42) 42 8 7
OSCC (36) 36 26 22
Total (115) 115 36 33
  1. OL = oral leukoplakia
  2. OSCC = oral squamous cell carcinoma
