In the third of their series of papers on the subject, Douglas and Craig (1989) used a competitive enzymelinked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to measure the concentration of lactoferrin in fluids from OKCs, dentigerous and radicular cysts. OKC fluids contained significantly higher concentrations of lactoferrin than fluids from the other two cyst types, but the range of values obtained within each group was large, and the lactoferrin concentration could not therefore be regarded as an absolute marker for OKCs.
Fragments of 14 OKCs, six inflamed OKCs, five dentigerous cysts and seven ameloblastomas were incubated in vitro for 24 h. The supernatant was then removed into the culture system of SD rat calvaria. After incubation for 48 h, the calcium contents of the media were measured by an atom spectrophotometer. The supernatant of odontogenic cysts and ameloblastomas was measured for the bone resorption related factors IL6, TNF-α, PGE2, bone Gla-containing protein (BGP) and calcitonin by a radioimmunoassay system.
None of these cell surface carbohydrates was demonstrable in a series of ameloblastomas, and the authors suggested that these immunohistochemical methods were useful in distinguishing the tumour from odontogenic cysts. Early attempts at laboratory diagnosis of the keratocyst Examining the cyst fluid Toller (1970a) considered that estimation of the soluble protein level in aspirated cyst fluid might be a valuable aid in the preoperative diagnosis of OKCs. 1 g per 100 mL. 0 g per 100 mL indicated a diagnosis of OKC.
