Gene context of Burning Mouth Syndrome

  • Statistically significant lowered vitamin B12 levels were found in patients with burning mouth syndrome [9].
  • Statistical analysis showed no significant differences in the level of tumour markers CEA, CA 19-9, AFP, CYFRA 21-1 in patients with burning mouth syndrome when compared to the healthy controls [11].
  • SUMMARY Burning mouth syndrome is an oral dysaesthesia presenting as a burning sensation of the tongue and less frequently other oral and peri-oral sites [12].
  • BACKGROUND: Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant mitochondrial coenzyme, trometamol salt of thioctic acid, shown in clinical studies to be neuroprotective and in a preliminary study to have an effect on the symptomatology of Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS) [13].
  • In 23 patients with burning mouth syndrome as well as in 20 age, sex, and race matched healthy controls levels of tumour markers-CEA, CA 19-9, AFP, and CYFRA 21-1-were determined from sera [11].
