Factors involved in the T helper type 1 and type 2 cell commitment and osteoclast regulation in inflammatory apical diseases.
INTRODUCTION Periapical chronic lesion formation involves activation of the immune response and alveolar bone resorption around the tooth apex. However, the overall roles of T helper type 1 (Th1),Expand
