A newly developed fluoroquinoline, Q-35 (8-OCH3), in which a methoxy group was substituted at the 8 position of the quinoline nucleus, was very stable under irradiation with long-wave UV light (UVA). Derivatives, a fluoroquinolone with no substitution (the 8-H analog) and one in which a fluorine was substituted (the 8-F analog), were degraded in their(More)
The 8-position of the quinolone ring of balofloxacin (BLFX), one of fluoroquinolones, was replaced with fluorine to obtain the 8-F. When an aqueous solution of bovine serum albumin (BSA) containing the 8-F was exposed to long-wavelength UV light (UVA) at a rate of 2.5 J/cm2, the absorbance of BSA at 300 nm or longer wavelengths increased markedly in(More)
OBJECTIVES To measure the root lengths of maxillary central incisors (U1) and evaluate the relationship among U1 root length, tooth movement, and type of treatment appliance in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate over a long-term follow-up period. MATERIALS AND METHODS Occlusal radiographs of 30 patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between external apical root resorption (EARR) of the maxillary central incisors (U1), horizontal orthodontic tooth movement, and quantity of grafted bone in subjects with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) over an average duration of 8 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty subjects with UCLP were evaluated for(More)
