In the periapex, the interaction among inflammatory cells and microorganisms and their products results both in specific and nonspecific immune responses. Many studies have reported quantitative analysis of the immunocompetent cells in periapical lesions, but the exact ratio of these cells in cysts and granulomas remains unknown. In the present study, we undertook a quantitative analysis of CD68+ cells and CD8+ T cells in human periapical granulomas and cysts. Immunoperoxidase staining revealed… CONTINUE READING
