The aim of the present study was to develop an in vitro test model from human teeth to comparatively examine antibacterial effectiveness of calcium hydroxide, parachlorophenol (PCP) and camphorated parachlorophenol (CPCP) against Enterococcus faecalis in infected root canals. Cylindrical dentin specimens were prepared from freshly extracted human maxillary(More)
This research, which was designed and carried out as two consecutive experiments, investigated the effects of four different levels (0, 4,000, 12,000, and 24,000 IU/kg) of vitamin A supplementation on egg yield, plasma vitamin A levels, and immune responses of laying hens. Transmission of maternal immunity to their descendants was also studied. In the first(More)
A total of 35 Escherichia coli isolates obtained from necropsy materials of hens with septicemia in the Konya region of Turkey were examined for hemagglutination (HA), cell-surface hydrophobicity, enterotoxigenicity, and drug resistance. HA tests were performed on live cultures with human (group A), bovine, avian (chicken), and guinea pig erythrocytes with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate antibacterial activity of a new resin based sealer, EndoREZ in comparison with 5 other sealers: AH 26, Diaket, Sultan, Apexit, and RoekoSeal. STUDY DESIGN The effect of 6 different sealers on the growth of 3 bacteria (Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) was(More)
AIM To compare the efficacy of a standard NaOCl irrigation procedure with that of Er,Cr:YSGG laser irradiation in contaminated root canals having small and large apical foramina. METHODOLOGY Forty root canals of extracted central incisor teeth with straight roots were chosen so that their apical foramina just permitted the tip of a size 20-K file to pass(More)
This paper reports on a study of the aetiology of calf pneumonia and the clinical efficacy of florfenicol, a new antibiotic in Turkey. Twenty-seven weaned and unweaned calves (13 males and 14 females) between 1 and 16 months of age brought to the clinics of Selçuk University, Faculty of Veterinary Science. Broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL) fluid samples were(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared the antibacterial activities of two dentin bonding systems (ABF, Kuraray and Reactmer Bond, Shofu) by a conventional agar well technique and a newly designed in vitro test using tooth model. METHODS In the agar well technique, the test materials were filled in the wells of Muller Hinton agar plates inoculated with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of two bonding systems, with and without antibacterial monomers, on marginal bacterial and dye leakage. MATERIALS AND METHODS Class V cavities were prepared in extracted teeth for a bacterial leakage test, and the teeth were sterilized using a steam autoclave. Four cavities were not restored(More)
The objectives of the present study were to develop a dot-immunobinding assay (DIA) and a serum agglutination test (SAT) for detection of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale, to compare the rapid agglutination test (RAT) and the SAT, and to make a serosurvey of O. rhinotracheale exposure on turkey farms in Turkey. Antiserum against O. rhinotracheale bacterin(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the intracellular activity of two types of liposome-encapsulated enrofloxacin (LE) compared with free enrofloxacin and non-treated control against Staphylococcus aureus, phagocytosed by monocytes in healthy Anatolian Shepherd dogs. Enrofloxacin was encapsulated with two different types of liposome in multilamellar large(More)
