Mesenchymal Stem Cell Marker Expression in Periapical Abscesses
CE Hours: 1.0 CE hour
There is evidence that acute periapical lesions present a greater potential for cyst formation. Recently, it was found that these lesions have cells with characteristics of pluripotent stem cells, which may influence cyst development. However, a more complete phenotype investigation of stem cells in a specific sample of periapical abscesses is required. The aim of this study was to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) markers in periapical abscesses and to evaluate differences in their expression in relation to acute and chronic periapical lesions.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Describe the pathological pathway of cyst formation
- Explain the importance of characterizing stem cells present in the periapical lesions
- Discuss the relationship between acute periapical abscess and cyst formation
