The present study was conducted on thirty untreated oral cancer patients proved by clinical and histopathological evidence and thirty healthy control subjects. The levels of glycoprotein-associated carbohydrates such as hexose, hexosamine, fucose and sialic acid were found to be elevated significantly as compared to control subjects. There was a progressive rise in these markers as the stages of oral cancer advanced.
