BACKGROUND Noninvasive imaging techniques would be highly desirable to differentiate oncotic from apoptotic cell death. Indium 111 antimyosin and technetium 99m glucaric acid were used to assess whether apoptotic and oncotic myocardial cell death can be differentiated. METHODS AND RESULTS Cultured H9C2 rat embryonic cardiocytes and CD1 rats were treated(More)
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) applied to the study of fluorinated polymer surfaces presents several problems related both to peak assignment and to degradation. In this work, we analyse extensively the question of XPS peak assignments in this kind of surfaces. We conclude that in this kind of surfaces using binding energy differences between(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical applicability of Pozzolana Biologic Silva cement (PBS(r)) in endodontic surgery. METHODS Persistent apical periodontitis was diagnosed in 30 teeth of 12 patients by cone-beam computed tomography (CT). All patients had 2 or 4 affected teeth and underwent endodontic surgery with root-end filling. Patients with 2 affected(More)
