Table 2 Distribution of patients with OPMLs+ODFs in the tongue (T patients) or in all the other oral mucosal regions (O patients) or in Buccal Mucosa (BM patients) with respect to DNA diploid or aneuploid status.

From: Chromosomal aberrations and aneuploidy in oral potentially malignant lesions: distinctive features for tongue

   OPMLs+ODFs  
  O patients vs. T patients (OR = 6.1; p= 0.0008)*  
   T patients vs. BM patients (OR = 7.0; p = 0.001)§
  O patients T patients BM patients
DNA diploid 68 8 52
DNA aneuploid 18 (21%) 13 (62%) 12 (10%)
Total 86 21 64
  1. *Once stratified for presence/absence of dysplasia in the OPMLs, ORM-H = 5.5 (p = 0.002).
  2. §Once stratified for presence/absence of dysplasia in the OPMLs, ORM-H = 5.9 (p = 0.001).
