The chi-square test for differences between the two groups and the Analysis of Variance Ameloblastoma is a rare disorder that affects males and females in equal numbers. It affects persons of all ethnic backgrounds and of all age groups. (ANOVA) test for differences among three or more groups was used. The level of statistical significance was set at P < 0.05. Sections (3 μm thick) were cut and placed in poly-L-lysine-coated slides. The sections were deparaffinized in a 60°C oven for 30 minutes and placed in xylol for 5 minutes. The sections were rehydrated in decreasing alcohol concentrations (absolute, 90, 70, and 50%) and washed in distilled water
The case records and surgical biopsy reports of all diagnosed cases of ameloblastoma archived from January 2010 to December 2012 were retrieved from the Outpatient Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Vishnu Dental College, Bhimavaram, West Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh. Histopathology will show cells that have the tendency to move the nucleus away from the basement membrane. This process is referred to as "Reverse Polarization". The follicular type will have outer arrangement of columnar or palisaded ameloblast like cells and inner zone of triangular shaped cells resembling stellate reticulum in bell stage.
While chemotherapy, radiation therapy, curettage and liquid nitrogen have been effective in some cases of ameloblastoma, surgical resection or enucleation remains the most definitive treatment for this condition. There is evidence that suppression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 may inhibit the local invasiveness of ameloblastoma, however, this was only demonstrated in vitro.
