1. The present study evaluated the participation of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in the inflammatory and nociceptive responses evoked by carrageenan in the mouse paw. 2. The intraplantar injection of carrageenan (300 microg paw-1) induced a marked and biphasic paw oedema formation (peaks at 6 and 72 h), which was accompanied by a long-lasting(More)
This study investigated the alteration of surface roughness of the nanofill composite Filtek Z350 3M/ESPE, caused by simulated brushing associated with the use of mouthrinses with or without alcohol. Sixty specimens were prepared and distributed into six groups: distilled water, ethylic alcohol, Listerine Vanilla Mint, Plax without alcohol, Oral B without(More)
It has been widely demonstrated that LPS is able to induce kinin B(1) receptor up-regulation throughout several models of inflammation. Using an in-vivo system in which LPS was administered systemically, we assessed the participation of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNFalpha in the functional up-regulation of B(1) receptors in the mouse paw.
