DNA of Oral Cytobrush in Three Means Conservation
Blood samples are an excellent source of large amounts of genomic DNA. However, alternative sources are often needed in epidemiological studies because of difficulties in obtaining blood samples.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

This protocol is designed to provide blood, buccal mucosa and bone marrow aspirate samples from approximately 250, healthy volunteer donors for use in in vitro studies of mast cells, masto...
We propose to conduct a pilot study among 30 volunteers from the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) in order to: (1) select the urine pH strip that most closely correlate...
This study will collect biological samples-buccal cells, blood sample, skin sample-to be used in developing and testing laboratory methods for measuring and analyzing genes. Such methods c...
Background: The purpose of this protocol is to establish a centralized repository for the collection and distribution of samples (either blood, buccal mucosal cells, semen, urine, or nail...
This open-label, randomized study will compare the efficacy, safety, and acceptability of mifepristone 200 mg followed in 24-36 hours either by buccal (i.e., in the cheeks) or oral misopro...
Samples for forensic DNA analysis are often collected from a wide variety of objects using cotton or nylon tipped swabs. Testing has shown that significant quantities of DNA are retained on the swab, ...
Short tandem repeat (STR) DNA typing is a global standard for human identification. Current practice involves highly trained forensic analysts, operating in a laboratory setting, using multiple instru...
Objective: Micronuclei (MN) are biomarkers that can be applied to buccal epithelial cells to assess populations occupationally exposed to potentially carcinogenic agents. Liquid-based cytology (LBC) i...
Breast cancer (BC) is the most frequently diagnosed form of cancer and the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among females in the world. RESULTS of several studies showed that the genome of prima...
Objective: To verify whether fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of cells from the buccal epithelium could be employed to detect cryptomosaicism with a 45,X lineage in 46,XY patients. Subjects a...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Works consisting of collected letters by or about a person or on a subject.
Administration of a soluble dosage form between the cheek and gingiva. It may involve direct application of a drug onto the buccal mucosa, as by painting or spraying.
Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.
The narrow passage way that conducts the sound collected by the EAR AURICLE to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
