Interleukin 1beta(IL-1beta), a proinflammatory cytokine, is related with inflammatory diseases and it up-regulates MUC2 gene expression and mucin secretion. This study was designed to investigate the signal transduction pathway of the IL-1beta-mediated MUC2 gene expression and mucin secretion in human airway epithelial cells. In cultured human airway(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this preliminary study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a customized, three-dimensional, preformed titanium mesh as a barrier membrane for peri-implant alveolar bone regeneration. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten patients were recruited for this study. At the time of implant placement, all patients had fenestration or a dehiscence(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to verify the feasibility of using silk fibroin (SF) as a potential membrane for guided bone regeneration (GBR). METHODS Various cellular responses (i.e., cell attachment, viability, and proliferation) of osteoblast-like MG63 cells cultured on an SF membrane were quantified. After culturing on an SF membrane for 1, 5,(More)
Dentigerous cysts are common odontogenic cysts that are associated with the crown of the tooth and typically develop from single lesions. Bilateral and multiple dentigerous cysts are very rare and occur in patients with syndromic conditions. This paper presents a case report of a 15-year-old male patient that experienced non-syndromic bilateral dentigerous(More)
PURPOSE Mandibular setback surgery can adversely affect the pharyngeal airway. The aim of this study was to investigate changes of the pharyngeal airway at specific intervals during a 12-month period after bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSO) for correction of mandibular prognathism. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective cohort study(More)
