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 the evaluation of the proliferative ability of many lesions. In this study 22 ameloblastomas (4 follicular, 5 plexiform, 4 acanthomatous, 5 unicystic, 4 recurrent), 12 odontogenic keratocysts (OKC), 8 dentigerous cysts (DC), and 12 radicular cysts (RC) were analysed. PCNA+ cells were present in all cyst… CONTINUE READING
