OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the levels of interleukin-12 (IL-12) and IL-18 in gingival tissue and serum between patients with chronic (n = 18) or aggressive periodontitis (n = 12) and healthy subjects (HS) (n = 9). METHODS Gingival tissue biopsies and serum were obtained from all study subjects. The tissue was homogenized and cytokines(More)
The endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene plays an important role in several biological functions. Polymorphisms of the eNOS gene have been associated with cancer. It has been suggested that the VNTR 4 a/b polymorphism may affect the expression of eNOS and contributes to tumor promotion in the mammary gland. We examined the role of the eNOS4 a/b(More)
Melorheostosis is a rare bone disease of unknown etiology. It is characterized by tense and erythematous skin, contractures and shortening of the affected limbs. Radiographs reveal hyperostosis in long bones resembling melting wax, and spotty or patchy endostic deposits in short bones. An 11-year-old girl showed, since birth, contractural deformities in the(More)
Congenital pseudarthrosis is a rare disease with variable clinical effects. The disease remains 1 of the most controversial pediatric entities in terms of etiopathogenesis, therapy, and prognosis. Between 0.5% and 2.2% of patients with neurofibromatosis demonstrate pseudarthrosis in any of the long bones. The exact origin of the lesion is even unclear;(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of alcohol-containing mouthwash on the induction of micronuclei and nuclear anomalies in exfoliated buccal cells, including binucleated cells, cells with nuclear buds, and karyolitic, karyorrhectic, condensed chromatin, and pyknotic cells. Buccal mucosa cells were collected from 107 healthy participants who(More)
BACKGROUND The frequency of haplotypes of Nsp I-Eco47 III sites, at the IDUA (alpha-L iduronidase) gene, in Huichol, Tarahumara and Mestizo Mexican population is reported. METHODS Eco47 III and Nsp I intragenic polymorphisms in IDUA gene are studied in three (Mestizo, Huichol and Tarahumara populations) Mexican groups. Data from normal Australian [Hum.(More)
