During the process of bone formation, titanium (Ti) surface is an important factor in the modulation of osteoblastic function. This study was conducted in order to determine the effects of different Ti surfaces on the biological responses of a human osteoblast-like cell line (MG63). MG63 cells were cultured on smooth (S), sandblasted large-grit and acid(More)
Objectives:To examine the relationships between body mass index (BMI), percentage-weight-for-height (PWH) and percentage body fat (PBF), and to compare their validity based on PBF with the BMI criteria of International Obesity Task Force (IOTF) for childhood obesity in Korean pre-adolescent school children.Design:Statistical comparative analysis for(More)
Several features of the implant surface, such as roughness, topography and composition play a relevant role in implant integration with bone. This study was conducted in order to determine the effects of various thin layer hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings on anodized Ti surfaces on the biological responses of a human osteoblast-like cell line (MG63). MG63 cells(More)
Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the interaction between the C677T mutation in the 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) genotypes and serum levels of B vitamins on serum homocysteine levels in pregnant women.Design: A cross-sectional study.Setting: Ewha Womans University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.Subjects: A(More)
The concentration of micronutrients impacts fetal development and pregnancy outcome and has been suggested to be negatively correlated with the body-mass index (BMI). We evaluated the relationship between BMI and the serum folate concentration in 802 and 660 Korean pregnant women in mid- and late pregnancy, respectively, who participated in a multicenter(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of a novel trifunctional methacrylate as a component of a photocurable composite resin with reduced curing shrinkage. METHODS Tris[4-(2'-hydroxy-3'-methacryloyloxypropoxy)phenyl]methane (TTEMA) was synthesized by reacting triphenylolmethane triglycidyl ether (TTE) with methacrylic acid in the(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the biomechanical stability of various miniplate fixation techniques in varying degrees of atrophy and to determine optimal fixation techniques for fractures of the atrophic edentulous mandible. A total of 78 bovine ribs were randomly divided into 13 groups of six each; one non-atrophic group and twelve atrophic groups.(More)
Enamel demineralization adjacent to pit and fissure sealants leads to the formation of marginal caries, which can necessitate the replacement of existing sealants. Dental materials with bioactive glass, which releases ions that inhibit dental caries, have been studied. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the enamel surface adjacent to sealants(More)
