Many aspects of dentin pulp tissue regeneration have been investigated, and it has been shown that dentin pulp has a high regeneration capacity. This seems to be because of the presence of progenitor cells and inductive regeneration signals from different origins. These signals can be liberated after the acidic dissolution of carious dentin as well as from(More)
The complement system is an efficient plasma immune surveillance system that controls tissue injury and infection. Although the liver constitutes the primary circulating complement protein synthesis site, extrahepatic synthesis is known to optimize local tissue inflammatory reaction. Because dentin-pulp regeneration is known to be regulated locally, we(More)
Whole-body imaging of experimental tumor growth is more feasible within the near-infrared (NIR) optical window because of the highest transparency of mammalian tissues within this wavelength spectrum, mainly due to improved tissue penetration and lower autofluorescence. We took advantage from the recently cloned infrared fluorescent protein (iRFP) together(More)
Complement system activation has been shown to be involved in inflammation and regeneration processes that can be observed within the dental pulp after moderate carious decay. Studies simulating carious injuries in vitro have shown that when human pulp fibroblasts are stimulated by lipoteichoic acid (LTA), they synthetize all complement components.(More)
It recently became evident that activation of the complement system also contributes to tissue regeneration after infection/injury. The complement-derived fragment C5a induces vascular modifications and attracts cells expressing its receptor (C5aR/CD88) to the site of infection and tissue injury. Besides inflammatory cells, various tissue cells express this(More)
INTRODUCTION Little information is yet available on the signals involved in progenitor cell migration that precede reparative dentin synthesis. Our aim was to investigate the effect of the controlled release of fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-2 and transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) on permanent teeth pulp cell proliferation and progenitor cell(More)
INTRODUCTION Tricalcium silicate-based materials are recognized as bioactive materials through their capacity to induce hard tissue formation both in the dental pulp and bone. Sealing the apex implies that the root canal filling materials interact with the periapical tissues. This work was designed to study the interactions of newly developed tricalcium(More)
Selectins belong to the family of adhesion molecules that recognize sugars as ligands through their Carbohydrate Recognition Domain (CRD). There are three types of selectin: the L-selectin (CD62L), which is constitutively expressed by most leukocyte populations, the P-selectin (CD62P) is found on activated platelets and endothelial cells, and the E-selectin(More)
Complement system, a major component of the natural immunity, has been recently identified as an important mediator of the dentin-pulp regeneration process through STRO-1 pulp cell recruitment by the C5a active fragment. Moreover, it has been shown recently that under stimulation with lipoteichoic acid, a complex component of the Gram-positive bacteria cell(More)
The pulp is a highly vascularized tissue situated in an inextensible environment surrounded by rigid dentin walls, with the apical foramina being the only access. The pulp vascular system is not only responsible for nutrient supply and waste removal but also contributes actively to the pulp inflammatory response and subsequent regeneration. This review(More)
