OBJECTIVES The comonomer triethyleneglycoldimethacrylate (TEGDMA) is a commonly used constituent of resin-based dental materials. Upon placement, light-cured dental polymers may release a wide spectrum of residual compounds due to incomplete monomer-conversion during polymerization. Apart from liberating unreacted monomers, additional compound release might(More)
OBJECTIVE Sulfur mustard (SM) is a bifunctional alkylating substance being used as chemical warfare agent (vesicant). It is still regarded as a significant threat in chemical warfare and terrorism. Exposure to SM produces cutaneous blisters, respiratory and gastrointestinal tract injury, eye lesions, and bone marrow depression. Victims of World War I as(More)
The chemical warfare agent sulfur mustard (SM) is a strong alkylating agent that leads to erythema and ulceration of the human skin several hours after exposure. Although SM has been intensively investigated, the cellular mechanisms leading to cell damage remain unclear. Apoptosis, necrosis and direct cell damage are discussed. In this study we investigated(More)
Acute lung injury after sulfur mustard (SM) inhalation is characterized by massive, localized hemorrhage and alveolar edema, which implies severe disruption of the vascular and distal airway barrier. In this study, we tested a recently established in vitro coculture model of the alveolo-capillary barrier for its applicability to investigate acute toxic(More)
Autologous blood donation before elective surgery has been widely endorsed as good transfusion practice. Although only 6% of patients undergoing elective orthopedic surgery are unable to donate 3 autologous units, 40% cannot donate 4 units because they become anemic. According to the results of our study this must be due to different problems of bone marrow(More)
Autologous blood donation before elective surgery has been widely endorsed as good transfusion practice. Although only 6 percent of patients undergoing elective orthopedic surgery are unable to donate 3 autologous units, 40 percent cannot donate 4 units because they become anemic [1,2]. According to the results of our study this must be due to different(More)
Patients undergoing autologous donation prior to elective orthopedic surgery show better Hb values during the perioperative period compared to those without autologous donation, all patients in both groups receiving no homologous transfusion. The widely assumed improvement of Hb regeneration during the postoperative period according to an erythropoiesis(More)
