Side population (SP) cells are isolated from various tissues and cell lines based on the exclusion of DNA-binding dye Hoechst 33,342 and exhibit potent stem cell characteristics. There have been few previous reports of SP cells in head and neck cancer cell lines. Thus, we isolated SP cells from oral squamous cell carcinoma cell line, Ho-1-N-1. Ho-1-N-1(More)
Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) affects quality of life and is an important problem for dentists. A Japanese position paper on BRONJ was published in 2010. The purpose of this study was to review clinical data on the treatment of BRONJ obtained at the Clinic of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Tokyo Dental College, Chiba Hospital to(More)
OBJECTIVE The RYK, EPHB2, and EPHB3 genes are attractive candidates for cleft lip and/or palate and cleft palate only pathogenesis. Both the Ryk-deficient mouse and Ephb2/Ephb3 (genes for interaction molecules with RYK) double-mutant mouse show cleft palate. SETTING Mutation searches for RYK, EPHB2, and EPHB3 were carried out in a large number of Japanese(More)
We analyzed the mutational and methylation status of the spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) gene and both mRNA and protein levels in primary oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and OSCC-derived cell lines and examined the function of the Syk gene in OSCC-derived cell lines in vitro. Using quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction,(More)
The prevalence of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and cleft palate only (CPO) are believed to be higher in the Japanese than in Americans, Europeans or Africans. The purpose of this study was to investigate, in a Japanese population, relationships between CL/P or CPO and seven candidate genes (TGFB3, DLX3, PAX9, CLPTM1, TBX10,(More)
This report contains a statistical review of 559 cases of lesions forming hard tissues that were diagnosed by the departments of Clinical Pathophysiology and of Pathology at Tokyo Dental College from 1966 to 2001. Sixteen kinds of lesions which were related to the formation of bone, cartilage or cementum were analysed: osteoma, osteo-chondroma, chondroma,(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate a case of calcifying odontogenic cyst (COC) in which numerous calcifications were observed not only in the lining epithelium, but also in the cyst wall, using cytokeratins 13 (CK13), 19 (CK19), and core binding factor a-1 (cbfa-1) as primary antibodies. Cells of Malassez's epithelial rest were stained as(More)
In benign tumors in the mandibular condyle such as osteoma and osteochondroma, symptoms such as pain and limited-mouth-opening are rarely observed. Therefore, these tumors are often detected after the development of changes in occlusion and mandibular midline deviation. We encountered a very rare patient with mandibular condyle osteoma who showed acute pain(More)
Surgical orthodontic treatment and dental implant therapy were performed on a man (aged 18 years 8 months) with mandibular prognathism and seven congenitally missing teeth: upper canines, first and second premolars and lower right second premolar. After 17 months of preoperative orthodontic treatment at age 20 years 1 month, sagittal split ramus osteotomy(More)
Objective : Postoperative evaluation of bone formation in the alveolar cleft by computed tomography imaging has been reported. We quantitatively evaluated bone grafts in the alveolar cleft preoperatively and postoperatively using three-dimensional data and superimposition of images. Subjects : A total of 12 patients with complete unilateral cleft lip and(More)
