Relationship of calcitonin gene-related peptide in synovial tissues and temporomandibular joint pain in humans.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To elucidate the expression of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in synovial tissue taken from the human temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with internal derangement, and discuss the relationship between CGRP and joint pain. STUDY DESIGN Using an immunohistochemical technique, 48 joints in 48 patients were examined. As controls, synovial tissue… (More)
