E. faecalis in endodontic infection represents a biofilm type of disease, which explains the bacteria's resistance to various antimicrobial compounds and the subsequent failure after endodontic treatment. The purpose of this study was to compare antimicrobial activities and bacteria kinetic adhesion in vitro for three endodontic medicaments with a clinical(More)
A dental unit water line (DUWL) equipped with a device designed to automatically and continually flush a bacteriostatic solution of hydrogen peroxide (WHE) and a discontinuous disinfecting system (BIOSTER) was evaluated. In the first instance a preliminary sensitivity test on a large number of microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) was tried with a H(2)O(2)(More)
BRAF is an oncogene that is commonly mutated in both melanomas and papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs). Usually, mutations in the codons 600 or 601 lead to constitutive activity in the Ras-mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway and, recently, the BRAF deletion was described as a relevant risk factor for loco-regional PTC lymph node metastasis. For these(More)
