Initial transient accumulation of M2 macrophage-associated molecule-expressing cells after pulpotomy with mineral trioxide aggregate in rat molars.

INTRODUCTION M2 (alternatively activated) macrophages are known to participate in wound healing and tissue repair. This study aimed to analyze the temporospatial changes in the distribution and density of M2 macrophage-associated molecule-expressing cells after pulpotomy with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) in rat molars to ascertain the role played by M2… CONTINUE READING
