TLR4 and TLR9 are induced in oral lichen planus
Journal of Oral Pathology & Medicine, 06/08/2012
Siponen M et al. – Toll–like receptor 4 and Toll–like receptors (TLRs)9 are induced in OLP; the finding confirms the results of a previous study. TLR4 and TLR9 may play a part in the pathogenesis of OLP. Further studies are needed to dissect the definitive role of TLRs in OLP pathogenesis and progression and to determine the effect of tacrolimus on the function of TLRs.
