Tooth derived cells are readily accessible and provide an easy and minimally invasive way to obtain and store stem cells for future use. Banking ones own tooth-derived stem cells is a reasonable and simple alternative to harvesting stem cells from other tissues. Obtaining stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED) is simple and convenient, with(More)
Appropriate selection of the implant biomaterial is a key factor for long term success of implants. The biologic environment does not accept completely any material so to optimize biologic performance, implants should be selected to reduce the negative biologic response while maintaining adequate function. Every clinician should always gain a thorough(More)
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is one of the most widely used materials in prosthetic dentistry. Since it was introduced to dentistry, it has been successfully used in construction of denture bases. Acrylic resins have been successful as denture bases because of their ease of processing, low cost, light weight, and colour matching ability,however, acrylic(More)
We show that US consumer inflation expectations are formed using a variant of adaptive expectations proposed by Mankiw et al. (2004). In particular, expectations behave differently when food and energy prices rise sharply relative to other prices. Using the recently proposed test of Homm and Breitung (2012), we analyze the 1982–2010 period and identify(More)
PURPOSE To assess ocular and systemic safety and pharmacodynamic effects of the oral PKC beta selective inhibitor ruboxistaurin (RBX; LY333531) mesylate in patients with diabetes. METHODS This was a double-masked, placebo-controlled, parallel, randomized, single-center clinical study evaluating the effect of oral administration of RBX (8 mg twice a day,(More)
BACKGROUND This study compared the efficacy and safety of amlodipine/benazepril (10/40 mg/day and 10/20 mg/day) with amlodipine 10 mg/day in patients whose blood pressure (BP) was not adequately controlled with amlodipine monotherapy. METHODS After a lead-in period with amlodipine monotherapy, 812 non-responder patients (mean sitting diastolic BP > or =95(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of microleakage is important for assessing the success of new restorative materials and methods. AIM AND OBJECTIVES Comparative evaluation of microleakage in Class II restorations using open vs. closed centripetal build-up techniques with different lining materials. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standardized mesi-occlusal (MO) and(More)
Changing requirements of customer needs establishes the need to analyze impact of requirement changes. For success of any software requirement analysis is very essential. In this paper, we propose a four stage method engineering process which aims at estimating impact of change. The process model described is a linear layered model. Impact sets are computed(More)
. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) treatment should not increase cardiovascular (CV) risk and at best could provide benefit beyond lowering glucose. Pioglitazone has demonstrated a favorable CV profile relative to other oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) in outcome and observational studies. This randomized, double-blind, parallel-group controlled study examined(More)
