Conventional plastic teeth (CV teeth) are inferior to porcelain teeth in maintaining an adequate esthetic appearance with wear and discoloration, and thus have a shorter period of durability. Recently, high-strength plastic teeth (HS teeth) have been developed and applied to overcome the wear problems of CV teeth. Since HS teeth made of hard resin are still(More)
An in vitro study was conducted to evaluate the abrasive wear resistance of high-strength denture teeth (HS teeth). Eight types of specimen were used in the experiments; 3 types of HS teeth, 3 types of conventional plastic denture teeth (PL teeth), porcelain teeth and metal teeth. Sliding-induced wear tests were conducted by sliding the samples on a metal(More)
Francisella tularensis, which causes tularemia, is an intracellular gram-negative bacterium. F. tularensis has received significant attention in recent decades because of its history as a biological weapon. Thus, development of novel vaccines against tularemia has been an important goal. The attenuated F. tularensis strain ΔpdpC, in which the pathogenicity(More)
