Today, exosome-related studies have become a focus in science and technology. Recently, three scientists won the Nobel Prize for determining the mechanisms of exosomal transport, making exosomes a promising biomarker system for disease diagnosis and treatment. This review provides a general introduction of exosomes and explores the recent progress on the(More)
Patients with periodontitis seek periodontal-orthodontic treatment to address certain functional and aesthetic problems. However, little is known of the effect of periodontitis on orthodontic treatment. Thus, we compared the differences in peptide mass fingerprints of orthodontic patients with and without periodontitis by MALDI-TOF MS using a magnetic(More)
The aim of this study was to validate a newly developed three-dimensional (3D) structured light scanning system in recording the facial morphology. The validation was performed in three aspects including accuracy, precision and reliability. The accuracy and precision were investigated using a plaster model with 19 marked landmarks. The accuracy was(More)
Dental implants are commonly used to replace missing teeth. However, the dysbiotic polymicrobial communities of peri-implant sites are responsible for peri-implant diseases, such as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. In this study, we analyzed the microbial characteristics of oral plaque from peri-implant pockets or sulci of healthy implants (n =(More)
Although obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients are at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), only a small proportion is currently diagnosed. To explore and identify the differentially expressed proteins/peptides of OSA patients with CVDs, a mass spectrometry-based salivary analysis was performed. In our study, eleven peaks were observed(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to clarify the frontal chewing patterns of various crossbite malocclusions. METHODS A mandibular kinesiograph was used to record the masticatory movements of 106 subjects (ages, 12-35 years) with crossbite malocclusion and 22 subjects (ages, 16-30 years) with normal occlusion. The chewing patterns were classified(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the inherent relationship between registered and estimated natural head position and further explore the nature of natural head position. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one pretreated patients were included in this study. Both registered natural head position (RNHP) and estimated natural head position (ENHP) were obtained. For RNHP,(More)
We have previously demonstrated that all-trans retinoic (atRA) induced growth inhibition and apoptosis in mouse embryonic palate mesenchymal cells (MEPM). In the present study, we investigated the molecular mechanisms of atRA-induced apoptosis and its putative action pathway. atRA-induced apoptosis is associated with activation of the initiator caspase-9(More)
AIMS To investigate the association between the methylenetetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase 1 (MTHFD1) polymorphism rs 2236225 (c.1958G>A) and susceptibility to non-syndromic cleft of the lip and/or palate (NSCL/P). METHODS An extensive literature review has been conducted using PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, Google Scholar, the China National(More)
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a frequent medical condition during pregnancy. Early diagnosis and treatment of GDM are crucial for both the mother and the baby. In the present study, we aimed to identify specific biomarkers to assist in the early detection of GDM and give some clues to the possible causes of GDM by comparing serum peptide profile(More)
