BACKGROUND To clarify the roles of osteoclast regulatory factors in progression of odontogenic tumors, expression of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP), osteoclast differentiation factor (ODF)/receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB ligand (RANKL), and osteoclastogenesis inhibitory factor (OCIF)/osteoprotegerin (OPG) were analyzed in ameloblastomas as well as tooth germs. METHODS Tissue specimens of nine tooth germs and 36 benign and one malignant ameloblastomas were examined by… CONTINUE READING
