The recognition that periodontal regeneration can be achieved has resulted in increased efforts focused on understanding the mechanisms and factors required for restoring periodontal tissues so that clinical outcomes of such therapies are more predictable than those currently being used. In vitro models provide an excellent procedure for providing clues as(More)
Enamel Matrix Derivative (EMD) contains a protein complex belonging to the amelogenin family. Enamel matrix as well as EMD have been found to promote periodontal regeneration when applied onto denuded root surfaces in dehiscence models. In the present studies it is shown that propylene glycol alginate (PGA) is a suitable vehicle for EMD for its local(More)
We present an improved version of the HaskellDB database library. The original version relied on TRex, a Haskell extension supported only by the Hugs interpreter. We have replaced the use of TRex by a record implementation which uses more commonly implemented Haskell extensions.Additionally, HaskellDB now supports two different cross-platform database(More)
The aim of the present clinical trial was to test tolerability during 2 treatments with EMDOGAIN in a large number of patients. An open, controlled study design in 10 Swedish specialist clinics was chosen, with a test group of 107 patients treated with EMDOGAIN in connection with periodontal surgery at 2 surgical test sites per patient. The procedures were(More)
BACKGROUND A major problem with cisplatin treatment is the development of acquired-drug resistance of the tumour cells. Verotoxin-1 (VT-1) exerts its cytotoxicity by targeting the membrane glycolipid globotriasosylceramide (Gb3), a molecule associated with drug resistance. Cisplatin- and VT-1-induced apoptosis involves mitogen-activated protein kinase(More)
OBJECTIVE Enamel extracellular matrix proteins in the form of the enamel matrix derivative EMDOGAIN (EMD) have been successfully employed to mimic natural cementogenesis to restore fully functional periodontal ligament, cementum and alveolar bone in patients with severe periodontitis. When applied to denuded root surfaces EMD forms a matrix that locally(More)
