The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become more generally accepted, and implant dentists are using PRP more frequently to promote the healing of oral surgical and/or periodontal wounds. Critical elements of PRP are thought to be growth factors contained within the concentrated platelets. These growth factors are known to promote soft-tissue healing,(More)
BACKGROUND Participation in cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs) allows patients to increase their knowledge of the importance of established risk factors to help them maintain healthy lifestyle changes after coronary heart disease (CHD). AIM To explore perceived importance and knowledge of known risk factors for CHD among non-attendees in CRPs. (More)
Phthalate esters have been widely used in industrial nations as plasticizers, in cosmetics, insect repellants, and munitions (Ribbons et al., 19847 Peakall, 1975). Due to the abundance of plastic materials in use, it has been estimated that 51 million pounds of phthalate esters leach into the environment annually (Ribbons et al., 1984). Phthalate esters(More)
BACKGROUND Enhancing the accuracy of the content of cardiac rehabilitation programmes (CRPs) and providing the mediators preferred by patients can increase attendance rates in line with secondary prevention goals. The aim of this study was therefore to explore non-attendees' attitudes to the design of a CRP focused on information of risk factors and(More)
Lipophilic metal chelators inhibit various energy-transducing functions of chloroplasts. The following observations were made 1. Photophosphorylation coupled to any known mode of electron transfer, i.e. whole-chain noncyclic, the partial noncyclic Photosystem I or Photosystem II reactions, or cyclic, is inhibited by several lipophilic chelators, but not by(More)
