This talk provides insight on the current predictors for transformation of oral potentially malignant disorders to OSCC and explores markers that may have a future impact on risk assessment and early detection.

Learning Objectives

  1. Familiarize the audience with the current clinical and histological predictors for malignant transformation in premalignant and potentially malignant lesions.
  2. Provide an update regarding the potential phenotypic and genotypic markers that may help predict the risk for malignant transformation.
  3. Identify the barriers and facilitators for utilizing these markers in both research and clinical practice.
