The purpose of this study was to analyze the profile of glycosphingolipids (GSLs) in periradicular lesions refractory to endodontic treatment. Sixteen periapical lesions were removed surgically from patients (experimental group) and compared with 10 samples of periodontal ligament removed from extracted intact third molars (control group). After the GSLs extraction and purification procedures were performed the neutral and acidic GSL fractions were analyzed by high-performance thin-layer… CONTINUE READING
