Immunocytochemical examination of immune cells in periapical granulomata and odontogenic cysts.

Abstract

Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were used to determine the presence and distribution of immune cells including lymphocytes, macrophages and Langerhans cells, in normal periodontal ligament, periapical granulomata, periapical cysts and dental developmental cysts.
