Title: Prevalence of mast cells within the periodontal ligament of the developing rat molar
Author: Salmon, Richard John
Issue Date: 2000
School/Discipline: Dental School
Abstract: Mast cells are commonly associated with tissue inflammation and can expel an array of cytokines and mediators during activation or injury to the cell. Using rats, this study aims to assess the location and prevalence of mast cells about the developing first maxillary molar crown and periodontal ligament (PDL) of the developing mesiobuccal root. A relative incidence of mucosal and connective tissue-type mast cells within the PDL population was also investigated.
