Metabolomic Salivary Biomarkers for Oral Cancer Detection

Help Support Oral Cancer Research

Research

Why?

Around 24,000 men and women are diagnosed with oral cancer in the US each year; and as many as 5,300 will die. Oral cancer patients know it affects all of life: eating, drinking, talking -- even overall health.

Who?

Our research needs help from all people, especially those diagnosed with:

  1. oral cancer who have not yet begun treatment,
  2. gum disease (periodontitis) or
  3. oral lichen planus.

How?

We need a one-time collection of your saliva (simply spitting into a tube). It takes 30-45 minutes, and we can compensate you for your time.
