Expression profile of chemokines and chemokine receptors in epithelial cell layers of oral lichen planus.


BACKGROUND To understand the immunopathological features of oral lichen planus (OLP), we analyzed the expression of chemokines in the epithelial cell layers. METHODS Epithelia from OLP or healthy gingiva were collected by laser microdissection. The chemokine and chemokine receptor expressions in the epithelia were analyzed by DNA microarray.
