INTRODUCTION Pulp stem/progenitor cells have been successfully transplanted after pulpectomy in dogs and have led to pulp regeneration. The regenerated pulp tissue was investigated by the qualitative and quantitative protein expression patterns in comparison with those of normal pulp. There is an unmet need for a quality standard for regenerated pulp(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in stress on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in 80 Japanese subjects (21 males and 59 females, mean age 23.7 years) with mandibular prognathism, with and without asymmetry after orthognathic surgery using the rigid bodies spring model (RBSM). The asymmetric group consisted of 40 subjects whose Mx-Md(More)
Treatment of deep caries with pulpitis is a major challenge in dentistry. Stem cell therapy represents a potential strategy to regenerate the dentin-pulp complex, enabling conservation and restoration of teeth. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of pulp stem cell transplantation as a prelude for the impending clinical trials.(More)
Insights into the understanding of the influence of the age of MSCs on their cellular responses and regenerative potential are critical for stem cell therapy in the clinic. We have isolated dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) subsets based on their migratory response to granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) (MDPSCs) from young and aged donors. The aged(More)
AbstrAct This article describes a new automatic digital content generation system we have developed. Recently some universities, including Hosei University, have been offering students opportunities to take distance interactive classes over the Internet from overseas. When such distance lectures are delivered in English to Japanese students, there is a(More)
Recently, mesenchymal stem cells have demonstrated a potential for neurotrophy and neurodifferentiation. We have recently isolated mobilized dental pulp stem cells (MDPSCs) using granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) gradient, which has high neurotrophic/angiogenic potential. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of MDPSC(More)
While multi-gamma-ray emitting nuclides such as 75Se, 134Cs and 152Eu have reasonably well-defined decay scheme, some inconsistencies still remain. Detailed evaluations and weighted-mean analyses result in the recommendation of gamma-ray emission probabilities with small uncertainties, although significant deviations exist in the measured values. Therefore,(More)
