The aim of the study was to compare the outcome of bridges supported by implants with bridges supported by a combination of implants and natural teeth abutments. The study comprised 23 patients with Applegate Kennedy Class I dentition in the mandible and a full upper denture. Implants ad modum Brånemark were inserted in the posterior areas of both(More)
Rat liver microsomal glutathione transferase 1 (MGST1) is a membrane-bound enzyme that displays both glutathione transferase and glutathione peroxidase activities. We hypothesized that physiologically relevant levels of MGST1 is able to protect cells from oxidative damage by lowering intracellular hydroperoxide levels. Such a role of MGST1 was studied in(More)
Glutathione transferases (GSTs) are often upregulated in tumors and have been suggested to play an important role in multiple drug resistance in cancer chemotherapy. As a consequence GST-dependent pro-drugs and inhibitors are being developed. Little is known, however, on the potential role of membrane-bound GSTs in drug resistance despite the fact that(More)
This paper describes a pilot study in building a Swedish multiword expression lexicon (SweMWELex) containing data collected from a corpus. Parts of the Swedish Treebank will be used for extracting the MWEs and the result will be stored in a publicity available XML framework which is called Lexical Markup Framework (LMF). The result gives a prototype lexicon(More)
Positional changes of the mandible and upper and lower incisors were studied by means of cephalometric analysis after oblique sliding osteotomy for the correction of mandibular prognathism. In addition to intermaxillary fixation, skeletal fixation between the anterior nasal spine and the chin was used. The patients were followed up for 18 months after(More)
