Resistance to TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand)- induced apoptosis limits its therapeutic use. Different strategies of TRAIL sensitization and a dependency on Bax have been reported, but common principles of TRAIL resistance and the way of Bax activation remained poorly understood. Applying a melanoma model of TRAIL-sensitive and -resistant cell(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the influence of the implant-abutment connection on the long-term in vitro performance and fracture resistance of two-piece zirconia implant systems for anterior application. METHODS Six groups of two-piece zirconia implant systems (n=10/group) with screw-retained (5×) or bonded (1×) connections were restored with full-contour(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the long-term in vitro performance and fracture resistance of one-piece and bonded two-piece zirconia implant systems for anterior application. METHODS Two groups of bonded two-piece zirconia (ZZB), four groups of one-piece zirconia (Z), and two groups of two-piece titanium (TTS, reference) implant systems were restored with(More)
