In order to investigate the kinetics of vocal fold epithelium a bromodeoxyuridine-anti bromodeoxyuridine method has been applied in vivo at both light and electron microscopy level. This method is able to define the length of both epithelium turnover and cell-cycle in basal elements, as well as the existence of a higher proliferation rate during night time in comparison with day time. Moreover distinct labeling patterns observed in incorporating cells allow us to define the precise localization in S-phase of cycling elements.
