|Assessment of IgA level in patients with Squamous cell carcinoma|
Background: Oral cancer is the 15th most prevalent cancer worldwide. The present study was conducted top assess IgA level in patients with Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted in the department of Oral Medicine & Radiology. A thorough oral examination was done in all patients. 5 mL of venous blood samples were collected from the anterior cubital vein in blood tubes. The serum was separated and was delivered to the biochemistry laboratory for the estimation of serum IgA level. Results: Group I had 30 patients with untreated cases of SCC, group II had 30 treated cases of SCC and group III had healthy subjects. The mean IgA level in group I was 645.2 mg/Dl, in group II was 304.7 mg/Dl and in group III was 301.6 mg/Dl. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Authors found increased IgA level in untreated cases of squamous cell carcinoma as compared to healthy and treated cases.
