This study evaluated in vitro and in situ the potential adverse effects of 10% carbamide peroxide on human enamel using microhardness, calcium loss and surface morphology analysis. Twenty-four enamel slices (4 mm2) were obtained from recently extracted premolars. The specimens were polished under water-cooling down to 1,200-grade sandpaper. After initial(More)
CyberBELT allows a viewer to interact with a multithreaded documentary using a multi-modal interface. The viewer interacts with the documentary by speaking, pointing and looking around the display. The viewer selects the threads of the story to follow or lets the system navigate through the story. Feedback from the viewer evolves the story to present(More)
The microbicidal activity of macrophages in an inflammatory milieu has been related to the production of a large number of cytokins and intermediary metabolites of oxygen and nitrogen among them, nitric oxide (NO). Considering that granulomatous inflammation is predominantly composed of macrophages and epithelioid cells, we decided to investigate the(More)
The erosion caused in vitro by cola-type and guaraná-type beverages (the latter is a soft drink sold in Brazil), and a canned lemon juice on the enamel of human deciduous teeth was analyzed. Morphological analysis of affected enamel was done using stereomicroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The harmful effect of all test products on deciduous(More)
As the volume of material online increases, it becomes more difficult and time consuming for people to find what they are looking for [5]. Finding the right document depends on how well query terms match keywords or other document descriptors. In the case of text documents, descriptors can be generated from an automatic analysis of the documents’ content(More)
The aim of this study was to test the possibility of the concomitant formation of calculus deposits and caries from in situ dentin caries model for short time periods. Six volunteers wore palatal removal appliances with four polished dentin specimens protected from intra-oral mechanical forces for up to 14 days. Each volunteer applied a 50% sucrose solution(More)
The substituted benzamides or orthopramides are used to treat gastrointestinal and psychotic disorders. The orthopramide clebopride, a potent dopaminergic antagonist, blocks emesis in dogs and stereotyped behavior in rodents. Since the release of prolactin is inhibited by dopamine, antidopaminergic drugs may be useful to increase lactation in nursing(More)
RESUMEN En este estudio hemos analizado la potencialidad de desarrollo del germen dental en fase de corona. Para ello, los gérmenes dentales de rata recién nacida fueron trasplantados en las bolsas dérmicas de la oreja de ratas isogénicas. Siete y catorce días después del trasplante, se desarrollaron las estructuras morfológicas dentales típicas, con(More)
BACKGROUND This study describes the bone formation stimulated by the application of a type of chalcone to critical-size defects in rat calvarial bone. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty female Wistar rats were divided into 6 groups of 10 animals per group: control (no treatment), vehicle (vaseline) and the chalcone (1-phenyl-3-(4-chlorophenyl)-2-propen-1-one)(More)
