OBJECTIVE Midkine (MK) is a heparin-binding growth factor that is overexpressed in various human cancers. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of MK in ameloblastomas and correlate the results with clinicopathologic parameters. STUDY DESIGN Cases of ameloblastoma seen between 1999 and 2010 were identified. Clinical information was(More)
