This study compared the influence of different polymerization methods (heat, auto-, and microwave energy), different curing processes (in the case of heat- and autopolymerized specimens), and length of storage of the polymerized specimens in distilled water at 37 degrees C on the residual methyl methacrylate (MMA) content in dental acrylic resin specimens.(More)
This study investigated the effect of water storage on residual methyl methacrylate (MMA) content of continuous E-glass fiber (Wetrotex International) reinforced denture base polymers. Heat-polymerization (short- and long-term boiling and conventional curing cycle using Meliodent), autopolymerization (processed in air at room temperature and in water at 60(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the vasoregulatory effect of antioxidant alpha-tocopherol on retina via protein kinase C pathway. METHODS Thirty glaucomatous patients (60 eyes) were included in this study. The patients were divided into three groups. For patients in Group A, tocopherol was not supplemented in their therapy. Patients in Groups B and C received 300 and(More)
The effect of chronic perfusion of ammonia on the seizure threshold against pentylenetetrazol was studied. Ammonia plus sodium bicarbonate and saline (0.9%) was continuously administered to two groups of rats respectively. All animals were tested three times for seizure threshold, and were then decapitated and the brains removed for analysis of the amino(More)
OBJECTIVES Residual methyl methacrylate (MMA) content in unreinforced and in glass fibre reinforced, heat-polymerized (long- and short-term terminal boiled and conventionally) autopolymerized (at room temperature and in water at 60 degrees C) and microwave-polymerized (3min at 500W) denture base polymers after processing were compared. METHODS Ten(More)
