Efficacy of D-RaCe and ProTaper Universal Retreatment NiTi instruments and hand files in removing gutta-percha from curved root canals - a micro-computed tomography study.
TLDR
D-RaCe instruments were associated with significantly less residual filling material than ProTaper Universal Retreatment instruments and hand files and Hedström files removed significantly less dentine than both rotary NiTi systems.
Diverse Applications of Nanomedicine
TLDR
An overview of recent developments in nanomedicine is provided and the current challenges and upcoming opportunities for the field are highlighted and translation to the clinic is highlighted.
Epigenetic and in vivo comparison of diverse MSC sources reveals an endochondral signature for human hematopoietic niche formation.
TLDR
A genome-wide methylation, transcription, and in vivo evaluation of MSCs from human bone marrow, white adipose tissue, umbilical cord, and skin is performed and a tractable human niche model for studying homing and engraftment of human hematopoietic cells in normal and neoplastic states is demonstrated.
Efficacy of reciprocating and rotary NiTi instruments for retreatment of curved root canals assessed by micro-CT.
TLDR
Remnants of filling material were observed in all samples with no significant differences between the three techniques and the difference concerning dentine removal between both NiTi systems was not significant.
Flat-Panel Volume Computed Tomography for Cochlear Implant Electrode Array Examination in Isolated Temporal Bone Specimens
TLDR
Cochlear implantation assessment could be improved by flat-panel based volume computed tomography and, therefore, would be highly beneficial for cochlea implantation research and for clinical evaluation.
Antitumoral Effects of Calcitriol in Basal Cell Carcinomas Involve Inhibition of Hedgehog Signaling and Induction of Vitamin D Receptor Signaling and Differentiation
TLDR
It is shown that exogenous supply of calcitriol controls the activity of 2 independent pathways, Hh and Vdr signaling, which are relevant to tumorigenesis and tumor treatment, and could be a therapeutic option in the treatment of BCC.
Antitumor effects of a combined 5-aza-2'deoxycytidine and valproic acid treatment on rhabdomyosarcoma and medulloblastoma in Ptch mutant mice.
TLDR
This is a first in vivo demonstration that targeting of Dnmt and HDAC activities is highly effective in preventing formation of Ptch-associated tumors, and suggests a novel clinical strategy for consolidation therapy of corresponding tumors in humans after completion of conventional treatment.
Three-dimensional, non-destructive visualization of vertical root fractures using flat panel volume detector computer tomography: an ex vivo in vitro case report.
TLDR
The FD-VCT is an innovative diagnostic tool for non-destructive, three-dimensional evaluation of extracted teeth in pre-clinical and experimental studies and allows precise visualization and evaluation of vertical root fractures or cracks in extracted teeth.
