                                                                Mouth Tissue Generally Reflects Overall Health: Epithelial Cells

The idea from dentistry that mouth tissue generally
 reflects the overall health of patients was encouraging.

 "After testing various cells of the mouth, I focused on
 sublingual epithelial cells.  These cells were very easy to
 obtain non-invasively with mild scraping of the sublingual
 area or floor of the mouth."

 The cells were placed on a carbon slide; once fixed
 they had a long life span and required no special
 treatments or coating for transport or analysis other than

Sublingual epithelial cells did not change and were very
 stable. This is one reason they are also used in DNA testing.
