Abstract: Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is one of the most common oral mucosal lesions. The aetiology is unknown and currently there is no consensus regarding suitable treatment regimens. RAS is recognised as a multi-factorial condition in which both endogenous and exogenous factors contribute to the recurrent oral ulcerations characteristic of this oral mucosal disease. The overall aim of this thesis was to study the aetiological factors associated with RAS. Previously, it has been suggested that ... more
