Table 4 Multiple range test did not show significant differences in the generated score between OSCC group and HGSIL group. Both groups showed significant higher values whether considering healthy donors or considering contralateral mucosa. Multiple range test showed a statistical difference between contralateral mucosa of OSCC and HGSIL patients and healthy donors
