BACKGROUND Traumatic dental injury (TDI) could have physical and psychosocial consequences for children. Thus, it is important to measure the impact of TDI on the quality of life of children (QoL). The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between treated/untreated TDI and the impact on the quality of life of 11-to-14-year-old(More)
BACKGROUND The need to evaluate the impact of oral health has led to the development of instruments for measuring oral health-related quality of life (OHQoL). One such instrument is the Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ(11-14)), developed specifically for 11-to-14-year-old children. As this questionnaire was considered long (37 items), shorter forms were(More)
We report the preparation of novel magnetic field-responsive tissue substitutes based on biocompatible multi-domain magnetic particles dispersed in a fibrin-agarose biopolymer scaffold. We characterized our biomaterials with several experimental techniques. First we analyzed their microstructure and found that it was strongly affected by the presence of(More)
—A new approach for the problem of optimal task scheduling in a manufacturing cell is proposed in this work, as a combination of a clonal algorithm with the supervisory control of discrete-event dynamical systems. Two methodologies are proposed. In the first one, the clonal selection algorithm (CSA) performs the search for the optimal solution, using(More)
