Skeletal changes in the dam during lactation (a period of skeletal depletion) and the post-lactation period (a time of skeletal repletion) are of interest as a model for the study of mineral metabolism. With the introduction of lowered calcium (Ca) intake during gestation, lactation and the post-partum period, the model can be used to investigate factors(More)
Bone healing was investigated histologically in a rat fibular osteotomy model subjected to microgravity (shuttle flight STS-29) and the tail suspension microgravity simulation model. Exposure to microgravity or tail suspension occurred during the last 5 days of a 10-day healing period. Periosteal osteogenesis and the development of vascular channels in both(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to compare the outcomes of initial nonsurgical root canal therapy for different tooth types provided by both endodontists and other providers. METHODS By using an insurance company database, 487,476 initial nonsurgical root canal therapy procedures were followed from the time of treatment to the presence of an(More)
AIM To evaluate Save-A-Tooth (SAT), EMT Toothsaver (EMT) and Hank's Balanced Salt Solution (HBSS) for their influence on the viability and proliferative capacity of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (HPDLFs). METHODOLOGY Primary HPDLFs were seeded into 96-well cell culture plates and exposed to SAT, EMT, HBSS and water (negative control) for 0.5, 1,(More)
