The roles of nerve and neuropeptides in the process of bone formation and remolding have been studied previously. However, the effects of nervous system and neuropeptide on periodontal alveolar bone formation remained unknown. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of innervation on regeneration of alveolar bone and expression levels of calcitonin(More)
The frequent serious bleeding and thrombotic complications in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) are major causes of early mortality, but the complex mechanisms causing the bleeding have not been completely elucidated. Because microparticles (MPs) are known to be elevated in thromboembolic disorders, we hypothesized a role for MPs in the pathogenesis of(More)
It has been demonstrated that Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath (HERS) has an important role in root development, closely related to development of cementum epithelial rests of Malassez (ERM) as the residuum after HERS fragment, and is the exclusive epithelial structure in the mature periodontal ligament. Some studies reported that ERM may play a role in(More)
Periodontal ligament-associated protein-1 (PLAP-1) is a newly discovered member of the extracellular matrix family of proteins known as proteoglycans and is a negative regulator that plays a crucial role in the homeostasis of periodontal tissues. It can protect the periodontal ligament from excessive osteogenesis. However, the molecular mechanisms of PLAP-1(More)
Increasing evidence indicates that bone remodeling is under the control of factors related to neuronal regulation, but the underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. The aim of this study is attempted to assess the effect of denervation on neuropeptide expression and bone remodeling-related factors in the periodontal tissue regeneration process. rats(More)
Dioscin, a natural product obtained from medicinal plants shows lipid-lowering, anti-cancer and hepatoprotective effects. However, the effect of it on glioblastoma is unclear. In this study, dioscin significantly inhibited proliferation of C6 glioma cells and caused reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and Ca²⁺ release. ROS accumulation affected levels(More)
Zuojinwan (ZJW), a famous Chinese medicinal formula, contains two medicinal herbs Coptis chinese Frach and Evodia rutaecarpa (Juss.) Benth in the ratio of 6: 1. The inhibitory effects of ZJW on eight kinds of human cancer cell lines including SMMC-7721, BEL-7402, BEL-7404, HepG2, A549, NCI-H446, NCI-H460 and HCT- 116 cells were evaluated, and the possible(More)
Acquired factor VIII (FVIII) inhibitor induces a bleeding disorder caused by specific antibodies to FVIII. The cause of approximately one fifth of cases can be attributed to autoimmune disorders, such as pemphigus. Here, we describe a case of refractory acquired FVIII inhibitor in a patient with primary pemphigus and its successful treatment with low-dose(More)
