Recent advancements in mass spectrometric proteomics provide a promising result in utilizing saliva to explore biomarkers for diagnostic purposes. However, the issues of specificity or redundancy of disease-associated salivary biomarkers have not been described. This systematic review was therefore aimed to define and summarize disease-related salivary(More)
We aimed to evaluate the microbial and inflammatory characteristics associated with Denture Stomatitis (DS) analyzing: l) Levels of salivary cytokines and cultivable C. albicans; 2) DNA-DNA checkerboard on biofilm associated with mucosal tissue-bearing denture surfaces; 3) Serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels. Thirty-two subjects were enrolled in the study(More)
Recent advancement in mass spectrometry leads us to a new era of proteomic analysis. Human saliva can be easily collected; however, the complexity of the salivary proteome in the past prevented the use of saliva for proteomic analysis. Here we review the development of proteomic analyses for human saliva and focus on the use of a new mass spectrometric(More)
OBJECTIVES To monitor the release of the antifungal drugs Fluconazole, Chlorhexidine and a combination of the two from an auto-polymerized poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) denture base resin; and to investigate the effect of the released drugs upon the growth of Candida albicans. METHODS A high performance liquid chromatography-Ultra violet (HPLC-UV)(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this in-vitro study was to analyze the antimicrobial activity of root canal sealers by using the direct contact test. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine root canal sealers (4 resin-based sealers, 3 zinc oxide-eugenol based (ZOE) sealers, and 2 calcium hydroxide based sealers) and three microbial strains (Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans(More)
AIM The validity of the relationship between the maxillary anterior teeth and the incisive papilla and the pertinence of this relationship to Jordanians was examined. METHODS AND MATERIALS A computerized digital caliper (CDC) tool was developed and used in the measurements which were made on scanned images of dental casts of 298 Jordanians. The distances(More)
