Recent reports have suggested that the stromal cell-derived factor (SDF)-1alpha-CXCR4 axis has a direct effect on stem and progenitor cell recruitment in muscle and neural tissue repair after injury. No information is available about SDF-1alpha or CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) in dental tissues. The aim of this study was to assess the expression of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate histological response to immediate repair of different sizes of furcation perforation using MTA, Dycal and GIC. METHODS Forty-two posterior teeth in three adult beagle dogs were randomly divided into two groups, small perforation group and large perforation group. Each group was then divided into three sub-groups which were(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the dental pulp responses in dogs after MTA (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate) and a calcium hydroxide (Dycal) were applied as pulp-capping materials. METHODS Twelve cuspids in three healthy adult beagle dogs were divided into two groups randomly. MTA or Dycal was used to repair the exposed site which was(More)
PURPOSE To compare the cytotoxicity of three endodontic materials (MTA, Dycal and GIC) on human periodontal ligament cells (HPDLCs) in vitro. METHODS HPDLCs proliferation was evaluated using methylthiazol tetrazolium (MTT) assay for three endodontic materials in different concentration. SAS6.12 software package was used to analyse the results. RESULTS(More)
