Title: Determination of Proteins and Cholesterol Levels in the Fluid of Jaw Cystic Lesions in Patients Attending Khartoum Teaching Dental Hospital
Author: Saleh, Muaz Abdelmajeed; Mohamed, Elneel Ahmed
Abstract: This study determined and compared levels of proteins and cholesterol in the fluid of Jaw cystic lesions in patients attending Khartoum Teaching Dental Hospital. Methods: An observational comparative hospital based study was done in a total of 45 patients cystic fluids. Patient’s age ranged from 9 to 47 years. Colorimetric methods were used and data was analyzed by T-test. Results: Lowest values of total protein were recorded in keratocystic odontogenic tumour (KCOT); mean value being approximately (2.9 g/dl±1.5). In radicular cysts; highest value of total protein were recorded with a mean of (8.5 g/dl±2.0). Highest value of total cholesterol was also recorded in radicular cysts with a mean of (189 mg/dl±50). Conclusion: The study confirmed that the fluid of KCOT has a low protein content of less than 4g/dl. There is significant difference in the mean of total proteins between KCOT and other cysts. No significant differences were found between a mean of total protein and a mean of total cholesterol in KCOT and cystic ameloblastoma
