Immunohistochemical detection of platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor/thymidine phosphorylase and angiopoietins in ameloblastic tumors.

Abstract

BACKGROUND To evaluate the roles of angiogenic factors in the development and progression of odontogenic tumors, expression of platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor/thymidine phosphorylase (PD-ECGF/TP) and of angiopoietins in ameloblastic tumors as well as in tooth germs. METHODS Tissue specimens of 11 tooth germs, 44 ameloblastomas, and five… (More)
