Pleomorphic adenoma of oral minor salivary glands: An investigation of its neoplastic potential based on apoptosis, mucosecretory activity and cellular proliferation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the neoplastic potential of the PA of minor oral salivary glands measured by apoptosis (Bcl-2, Bax and p53), mucosecretory activity (MUC1), and cellular proliferation (Ki-67). DESIGN Thirty-one cases of PA of the oral cavity and four controls (C) taken from normal oral minor salivary glands were analyzed… (More)
