The changes in the number of Langerhans cells within the gingiva during a 21 day experimental gingivitis episode were investigated immunohistochemically. Monoclonal antibodies to CD1a (specific for Langerhans cells and thymocytes) and HLA-DR (class II major histocompatibility antigens - (MHC)) were used to identify Langerhans cells within gingival biopsies taken on days 0, 7, 14 and 21. HLA-DR antibody stained dendritic cells within the oral epithelium which were morphologically identical to… CONTINUE READING
