Bone remodeling is regulated by the two branches of the autonomic nervous system: the adrenergic and the cholinergic branches. Adrenergic activity favors bone loss, whereas cholinergic activity has been recently shown to favor bone mass accrual. In vitro studies have reported that cholinergic activity induces proliferation and differentiation of bone cells.(More)
Sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase 3 (Smpd3) encodes a membrane-bound enzyme that cleaves sphingomyelin to generate several bioactive metabolites. A recessive mutation called fragilitas ossium (fro) in the Smpd3 gene leads to impaired mineralization of bone and tooth extracellular matrix (ECM) in fro/fro mice. In teeth from fro/fro mice at various neonatal(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess effects of cholinergic stimulation using acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs), a group of drugs that stimulate cholinergic receptors and are used to treat Alzheimer's disease (AD), on healing of hip fractures. METHODS A retrospective cohort study was performed using 46-female AD patients, aged above 75(More)
INTRODUCTION Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) can help provide the best treatment option for every patient, however, its implementation in restorative dentistry is very limited. OBJECTIVE This study aimed at assessing the barriers preventing the implementation of EBD among dental undergraduate and graduate students in Montreal, and explore possible(More)
Many complex systems such as biological and social systems can be modeled using graph structures called biological networks and social networks. Instead of studying separately each of the elements composing such complex systems, it is easier to study the networks representing the interactions between the elements of these systems. A commonly known fact in(More)
There is increasing evidence suggesting that the use of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors may have beneficial effects on bone. Data on the potential post-surgical effects of these medications on orthopedic interventions are very limited. This study was designed to determine whether the use of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors is associated with a decrease in(More)
This systematic review investigated the failure rate of conventional single-unit restorations in root filled posterior permanent teeth. Two reviewers independently applied eligibility criteria, extracted data and assessed the quality of the evidence of each included study according to the Cochrane Collaboration's procedures for randomized control trials(More)
Certain mutations in the COL1A1 and COL1A2 genes produce clinical symptoms of both osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) that include abnormal craniofacial growth, dental malocclusion, and dentinogenesis imperfecta. A mouse model (Col1a1(Jrt)/+) was recently developed that had a skeletal phenotype and other features consistent with(More)
