The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potency of EGFR pathway inhibition achieved by combining cetuximab, an anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody, and genistein, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, which target extracellular and intracellular domains of the receptor, respectively, in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in vitro and in vivo. Two OSCC cell lines,(More)
OBJECTIVE The usefulness of image fusion based on the maximum mutual information algorithm was investigated for the assessment of oral and maxillofacial surgery treatment results. STUDY DESIGN Superimposition was performed using image fusion of 25 CBCT images of a human skull under the assumption of different spatial conditions and 41 patients' image(More)
Cholesterol granuloma is an inflammatory reaction to cholesterol crystals deposition. It may develop in a variety of sites including the middle ear, mastoid process or even paranasal sinuses. Very few cases of cholesterol granuloma occurring in the jaws were reported. This report presents a rare case of cholesterol granuloma that developed in the wall of a(More)
Although many studies highlighted cyclooxygenase2 (COX2) inhibition as a promising therapeutic strategy for cancer, more evidence is needed for clinical application. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of COX2 inhibition as a strategic treatment modality for head and neck carcinoma (HNC). We tested COX2 inhibitor, celecoxib in six(More)
BACKGROUND Poor prognosis of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is partly attributed to the lack of significant tumor marker for accurate staging and prognostication. We have evaluated survivin, which is a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis family as a cancer marker associated with proliferation, angiogenesis, oral carcinogenesis, and OSCC patient(More)
The use of artificial nerve conduit containing viable Schwann cells is one of the most promising strategies to repair peripheral nerve injury. To fabricate an effective nerve conduit whose microstructure and internal environment are more favorable in nerve regeneration than those currently existing, a new three-dimensional (3D) Schwann cell culture(More)
PURPOSE Patients undergoing impacted mandibular third molar (IMTM) extraction often have severe perioperative anxiety, which may lead to increased perceptions of pain and vital sign instability throughout surgery. Intraoperational musical interventions have been used during operations to decrease patient anxiety levels. We investigated the anxiolytic(More)
Maxillary protraction headgear has been used in the treatment of Class III malocclusion with maxillary deficiency. However, loss of dental anchorage has been reported with tooth-borne anchorage such as lingual arches and expansion devices. This side effect can be minimized with skeletal anchorage devices such as implants, onplants, mini-implants, and(More)
OBJECTIVES Given that the orientation of the transducer (mesiodistal or buccolingual) affects the data obtained from a piezoelectric resonance frequency analysis (RFA), this study evaluated whether it is necessary to use measurements taken in two different directions (mesiodistal and buccolingual) when using magnetic RFA to assess changes in the stiffness(More)
Implant stability plays a critical role for successful osseointegration, which has been viewed as a direct structural and functional connection existing between bone and the surface of a load-carrying implant(Bränemark, et al. 1977, Sennerby & Roos 1998). Achievement and maintenance of implant stability are prerequisites for successful clinical(More)
