Expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen in ameloblastomas and odontogenic cysts.
The identification of the proliferative activity in tumours may be useful to predict the biological behaviour of different lesions. Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) has been used for theExpand

The effect of material characteristics, of surface topography and of implant components and connections on soft tissue integration: a literature review.
To be functionally useful, oral implants have to pierce the gingiva or oral mucosa and enter the oral cavity, thus establishing a transmucosal connection between the external environment and theExpand

Solid aneurysmal bone cyst of the mandible.
Aneurysmal bone cyst is a rare, rapidly expanding, locally destructive, and often misdiagnosed lesion. It accounts for about 1-2% of primary biopsied bone tumours. About 60-70 cases have beenExpand
