The effect of BMP-2 on the osteoconductive properties of beta-tricalcium phosphate in rat calvaria defects
(Biomaterials, 2011-05-01) [Artigo]
Bone formation in critical-sized calvaria defects is strongly dependent on the osteoconductive properties of grafts. It remains a matter of controversy whether biomaterials can replace autografts and whether the supplementation ...
Raloxifene therapy inhibits osteoclastogenesis during the alveolar healing process in rats
(Archives of Oral Biology, 2011-10-01) [Artigo]
Objective: To investigate the expression of OPG, RANKL and TRAP during alveolar healing process (7, 14, 21, 28 and 42 postoperative days) in ovariectomized rats treated with raloxifene or with oestrogen replacement therapy, ...
Treatment of experimental periodontal disease with antimicrobial photodynamic therapy in nicotine-modified rats
(Journal of Clinical Periodontology, 2011-12-01) [Artigo]
Background: The aim of this study was to compare antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) as an adjunctive treatment to scaling and root planing (SRP) for induced periodontitis in nicotine-modified rats.Material & Methods: ...
Periodontal Tissue Engineering After Tooth Replantation
(Journal of Periodontology, 2011-05-01) [Artigo]
Background: Blood-derived products, platelet-poor plasma (PPP) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), constitute an approach in the enhancement of tissue healing. PRP has also been used as a scaffold for bone marrow stem cells ...
