Much evidence suggests that recurrent oral aphthous ulceration (RAU) is an immunologically mediated disease. Tumour necrosis factor has multiple biologic properties, some of which may be relevant to the pathogenesis of RAU. This study has assessed its production by peripheral blood leukocytes from aphthous patients in active and remission phases of disease… CONTINUE READING
