OBJECTIVES To examine whether oral lichen planus (OLP) affects the success rate of dental implants and if the manifestations of OLP are altered by implant-borne prostheses. MATERIALS AND METHODS OLP patients, treated in the oral medicine department, with (the study group) and without (control group) dental implants were included. Pocket depth, mobility,(More)
Intraneural inflammation, that reflects emigration of immune cells from blood to nerve tissue, is a critical event in Guillain-Barré syndrome pathogenesis. To investigate the adhesion and transmigration phases of leukodiapedesis, we determined in a series of patients with GBS: (1) circulating levels of soluble forms of adhesion molecules (sICAM-1 and(More)
BACKGROUND Increased collagenolytic activity, characteristic of uncontrolled diabetes, may compromise collagen membrane (CM) survival. Tetracycline (TCN) possesses anticollagenolytic properties and delays CM degradation in healthy animals. This study evaluates the degradation of TCN--immersed and -non-immersed CMs in rats with diabetes compared to those(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Epidemiologic and clinical studies have indicated that diabetes is a risk factor for periodontal disease progression and healing. The aim of the present study was to evaluate short-term healing after enamel matrix derivative (EMD) application in combined supra/infrabony periodontal defects in diabetic rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
Increased collagenolytic activity in diabetes may compromise collagen membrane (CM) survival. Tetracycline (TTC) possesses anti-collagenolytic properties and delays CM degradation. This study evaluated macrophage and capillary infiltration within CMs in diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in 20 Wistar rats by streptozotocin and 20 served as controls.(More)
