This investigation was designed to examine whether short-term administration of sex hormones could produce changes in contractile properties and the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca 2+ -ATPase (SERCA) function in genioglossal muscle (GG) of aged male rats. Twenty-four aged male rats were randomly...
At a late stage of amelogenesis, a basement-membrane-like (BML) structure appears between mature ameloblasts and the enamel surface. Although this BML structure is known to contain certain basement membrane components, its detailed nature and role were not well defined. As such, this study...
Objective Gingival cells respond to periodontal pathogens by generating reactive oxygen species, and such a condition would increase circulating oxidative stress. Improvement of gingival inflammation by toothbrushing may offer clinical benefits on not only periodontal health but also the...
Growth factors are currently being extensively studied in the literature to ascertain their role during maxillofacial development. Taking into account that few investigations refer to the functions of growth in the maxillaries, our aim was to identify the TGF-β1 immunohistochemical expression...
Objective To assess a panel of risk factors associated to oral candidosis (OC) onset and its chronic maintenance by means of fuzzy logic (FL) approach and statistical traditional methodology (STM); to investigate their casual relationship within a multifactorial framework.
Objective To compare the tissue reactions to implanted collagen scaffolds in the palate and the skin of rats.
Hyaluronan (HA) exists in various living tissues as one of the major matrix macromolecules, and is well known to play an integral role in cell differentiation and proliferation. The present study was conducted to elucidate whether or not the proliferation of periodontal ligament (PDL) cells are...
Aim Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are involved in periodontal tissue remodeling and degradation. MMP polymorphisms could alter transcription and function of these enzymes. The aim of this study was to investigate MMP-2 , MMP-9 and MMP-12 gene polymorphisms in relation to susceptibility to...
Objective To assess the concentration of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β in saliva of periodontally diseased and healthy patients and their relationship with the periodontal status.
