OBJECTIVE Since little is known about the effects of carbamide peroxide (CP) containing fluoride (F) or calcium (Ca), this study evaluated the effects of experimental and commercially available bleaching agents, with or without F and Ca, on enamel. METHOD AND MATERIALS Sound enamel slabs were randomly divided into six groups (n = 10): placebo gel (PLA);(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to determine if the addition of fluoride (F) and calcium (Ca) to home-applied 10% carbamide peroxide (CP) bleaching agents reduces mineral loss on the enamel surface and subsurface. BACKGROUND Home-applied 10% carbamide peroxide effectively whitens teeth. However, bleaching possibly promotes adverse side effects such as(More)
The prediction of tumor behavior for patients with oral carcinomas remains a challenge for clinicians. The presence of lymph node metastasis is the most important prognostic factor but it is limited in predicting local relapse or survival. This highlights the need for identifying biomarkers that may effectively contribute to prediction of recurrence and(More)
Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri (X. citri) is the causative agent of the citrus canker, a disease that affects several citrus plants in Brazil and across the world. Although many studies have demonstrated the importance of genes for infection and pathogenesis in this bacterium, there are no data related to phosphate uptake and assimilation pathways. To(More)
Leishmania (Viannia) shawi parasite was first characterized in 1989. Recently the protective effects of soluble leishmanial antigen (SLA) from L. (V.) shawi promastigotes were demonstrated using BALB/c mice, the susceptibility model for this parasite. In order to identify protective fractions, SLA was fractionated by reverse phase HPLC and five antigenic(More)
Cytoskeleton and protein trafficking processes, including vesicle transport to synapses, are key processes in neuronal differentiation and axon outgrowth. The human protein FEZ1 (fasciculation and elongation protein zeta 1 / UNC-76, in C. elegans), SCOCO (short coiled-coil protein / UNC-69) and kinesins (e.g. kinesin heavy chain / UNC116) are involved in(More)
This study compared the ability of adhesive systems to inhibit in vitro caries lesions in enamel under high cariogenic challenge. Bovine enamel blocks with cavity preparations were restored with AP-X resin composite (Kuraray Med) using four adhesives systems: Clearfil SE Bond (Kuraray Med); Clearfil Protect Bond (Kuraray Med); One-Up Bond F (Tokuyama) and(More)
INTRODUCTION Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a multi-causal disease associated with high morbidity and mortality due to complications, and 25% of patients present recurrence within 5 years. The identification of factors involved with DVT can help in the management of patients, prevention of recurrence and in the development of new therapies. The evaluation of(More)
