Bone regeneration potential of stem cells derived from periodontal ligament or gingival tissue sources encapsulated in RGD-modified alginate scaffold.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) provide an advantageous alternative therapeutic option for bone regeneration in comparison to current treatment modalities. However, delivering MSCs to the defect siteExpand

Evidence for involvement of superantigens in human periodontal diseases: skewed expression of T cell receptor variable regions by gingival T cells.
Immunomodulation by periodontopathic bacteria has been implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory periodontal diseases. A novel class of microbial-derived T cell mitogens, referred to asExpand

Application of stem cells derived from the periodontal ligament or gingival tissue sources for tendon tissue regeneration.
Tendon injuries are often associated with significant dysfunction and disability due to tendinous tissue's very limited self-repair capacity and propensity for scar formation. Dental-derivedExpand

Co-encapsulation of anti-BMP2 monoclonal antibody and mesenchymal stem cells in alginate microspheres for bone tissue engineering.
Recently, it has been shown that tethered anti-BMP2 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) can trap BMP ligands and thus provide BMP inductive signals for osteo-differentiation of progenitor cells. TheExpand

Development of an animal model for Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans biofilm-mediated oral osteolytic infection: a preliminary study.
BACKGROUND Biofilm-induced inflammatory osteolytic oral infections, such as periodontitis and peri-implantitis, have complex etiology and pathogenesis. A significant obstacle to research has been theExpand

Minimally invasive surgery: an alternative approach for periodontal and implant reconstruction.
Minimally invasive surgery is defined as a procedure involving a smaller access opening and less-extensive surgical manipulation of the tissues that surround the target structure. It represents aExpand

Periodontal soft tissue root coverage procedures: a consensus report from the AAP Regeneration Workshop.
BACKGROUND Management of gingival recession defects, a common periodontal condition, using root coverage procedures is an important aspect of periodontal regenerative therapy. The goal of theExpand

Pluronic F-127 hydrogel as a promising scaffold for encapsulation of dental-derived mesenchymal stem cells
Dental-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) provide an advantageous therapeutic option for tissue engineering due to their high accessibility and bioavailability. However, delivering MSCs to defectExpand
