After implantation in the exposed pulp, some molecules of the den-tin extracellular matrix induce the formation of a reparative dentinal bridge in the coronal pulp. In some cases, total occlusion of the root canal also is observed. This is the case for bone sialoprotein, bone morphogenetic protein-7, Dentonin (a fragment from matrix extracellular(More)
Recombinant amelogenin gene splice products A+4 and A-4, implanted in the pulp, induce the recruitment, proliferation, and differentiation of reparative cells. Our aim was to investigate the precocious events occurring in the pulp 1 d and 3 d after implantation of agarose beads alone or loaded with A+4 or A-4. Proliferation and cell recruitment towards an(More)
The repair of dental pulp by direct capping with calcium hydroxide or by implantation of bioactive extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules implies a cascade of four steps: a moderate inflammation, the commitment of adult reserve stem cells, their proliferation and terminal differentiation. The link between the initial inflammation and cell commitment is not(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the courses in endodontics and to assess the treatment quality in the student clinics in two dental schools, in Malmö, Sweden and Paris, France. A further aim was to improve the curriculum development in Paris 5 and Malmö by testing student exchange programmes. The comparison was based on the guidelines for undergraduate(More)
In order to study the short-time effects of two bioactive low-molecular amelogenins A+4 and A-4, half-moon cavities were prepared in the mesial aspect of the first maxillary molars, and after pulp exposure, agarose beads alone (controls) or beads soaked in A+4 or A-4 (experimental) were implanted into the pulp. After 1, 3 or 7 days, the rats were killed and(More)
This review summarizes the in vivo experiments carried out by our group after implantation of bioactive molecules (matricellular molecules) into the exposed pulp of the first maxillary molar of the rat or the mandibular incisor of rats and mice. We describe the cascade of recruitment, proliferation and terminal differentiation of cells involved in the(More)
