The effects of intracanal medicaments, fillers, and sealers on the attachment of human gingival fibroblasts to an exposed dentin surface free of a smear layer.
To date there has been very little research into the possible effects of endodontic therapy on regeneration of the lost periodontal attachment. The objective of this study was to examine the effectsExpand

An acute osteomyelitis model in traumatized rat tibiae involving sand as a foreign body, thermal injury, and bimicrobial contamination.
The multfactorial nature of bone injuries in modern warfare and emergency trauma patients warrants enhancement of existing models. To develop a more appropriate model, rat tibiae (n = 195) wereExpand

Synthesis of osteotropic hydroxybisphosphonate derivatives of fluoroquinolone antibacterials.
1-Hydroxybisphosphonate derivatives of ciprofloxacin, gatifloxacin and moxifloxacin have been synthesized using Cu(I) catalyzed azide-alkyne 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction. The 1,2,3-triazolExpand

Intravenous Pluronic F-127 in early burn wound treatment in rats.
A dramatic improvement in full skin thickness burn wounds in rats treated intravenously with the non-ionic surfactant Pluronic F-127 (F-127) has been demonstrated. In this study the F-127 was givenExpand
