The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect of inhibition of nitric oxide (NO) production after injury on inflammatory cell accumulation and fibrosis around digital flexor tendon and synovium. A standard crush injury was applied to the flexor tendons of the middle digit of the hindpaw and the overlying muscle and synovium of female Wistar(More)
OBJECTIVES This study investigated cellular attachment to 6 root-end filling materials as a measure of the biocompatibility of the materials. MATERIAL AND METHODS Class I retrograde cavities were prepared in root slices and these cavities were filled with the test materials, and incubated with Balb/C 3T3 fibroblasts for 24 h. Root slices with the cavities(More)
This study investigated the effect of extracts of different composites, glass ionomer cement (GIC)s and compomers on the viability of brine shrimp larvae. Ethanolic extracts of four dental composites (Z-100; Solitaire 2; Filtek P60 and Synergy), a conventional GIC (Ketac-Fil), a resin-modified glass ionomer cement (Vitremer), two compomers (F2000; Dyract(More)
This study examined the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) in macrophage infiltrates within crush-injured digital flexor tendon and synovium of control rats and rats treated with N(G)-nitro-1-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) (5 mg/kg). Release of TGF-beta from organ cultures of tendon, muscle,(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of interferon-gamma and -beta (IFN-gamma, -beta), interleukin-4 and -10 (IL-4, -10) and Hpopolysaccharide (LPS) on the metabolism and composition of phospholipid fatty acids in macrophages. Murine J774.2 macrophages were incubated with radiolabelled fatty acids and the appropriate stimulus and the(More)
