The effects of scaling titanium implant surfaces with metal and plastic instruments on cell attachment.
To the extent that observations of cell attachment and morphology are indicative of in vivo biocompatibility, these findings could have clinical implications for the proper maintenance of titanium dental implants.
The relationship between receptor for advanced glycation end products expression and the severity of periodontal disease in the gingiva of diabetic and non diabetic periodontitis patients.
Biomechanical behavior of oral soft tissues.
These investigations quantify the biomechanical properties of oral soft tissues and show region-to-region variation that details structure-function relationships and provides key parameters to aid development of biomaterials that perform with appropriate biomechanicals properties.

The in vitro wound technique is applicable to the study of breast cancer cell movement in response to antiestrogen and other antimetastatic agents and it is demonstrated that antiestrogens differ in their influence on breast cancers cell migration.

Evidence that fusobacterial sialylation does occur in the oral cavity irrespective of health status is provided and a de novo synthesized surface sIALylation ability that is widely conserved among the various F. nucleatum subspecies as well as in F. periodonticum is found.

Results show the HUV bioscaffold to be a promising naturally derived surgical barrier that may function well as a resorbable guided tissue regeneration membrane as well as in other clinical applications.
Influence of Antiestrogens on NIH-3T3-Fibroblast-Induced Motility of Breast Cancer Cells
The results suggest thatAntiestrogens inhibit breast cancer cell motility and that antiestrogen treatment may be used to reduce the metastatic spread of breast cancer.
