PURPOSE To assess vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and microvessel density (MVD) by immunohistochemistry and to relate them to the inflammatory status in a sample of radicular cysts. METHODS Specimens of 24 human radicular cysts were examined by immunohistochemistry using antibodies anti-VEGF and anti-CD34 and to evaluate vascular density. Integrity of the epithelium and inflammatory state of the connective tissues were evaluated and related with the immunohistochemical… CONTINUE READING
