INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment effects of maxillary posterior tooth distalization performed by a modified palatal anchorage plate appliance with cephalograms derived from cone-beam computed tomography. METHODS The sample consisted of 40 lateral cephalograms obtained from the cone-beam computed tomography images of 20(More)
The bacterial pathogen Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) colonizes in over half of the world's population. H. pylori that establishes life-long infection in the stomach is definitely associated with gastro-duodenal diseases and a wide variety of non-gastrointestinal tract conditions such as immune thrombocytopenia. Triple therapy which consists of a proton(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was aimed at comparing the mandibular arch forms of Korean and Vietnamese patients by using facial axis (FA) points on three-dimensional (3D) models. METHODS Mandibular casts of 68 Korean (Class I malocclusion, 30; Class II malocclusion, 38) and 78 Vietnamese (Class I malocclusion, 41; Class II malocclusion, 37) patients were scanned(More)
Anti-Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) effects of aminoreductone (AR), a Maillard reaction product, were evaluated in this study. AR effectively inhibited the growth of all 24 strains (19 clinical isolates and 5 isogenic mutants) irrespective of susceptibility to antibiotics and clinical manifestation. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of AR ranged(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the three-dimensional (3D) morphologic differences in the mandibular arch of Vietnamese and North American White subjects. The sample included 113 Vietnamese subjects (41 Class I, 37 Class II and 35 Class III) and 96 White subjects (29 Class I, 30 Class II and 37 Class III). The samples were regrouped according(More)
The Pade approximation method has been applied to calculate the epithermal neutron self-shielding factors for some materials used as a comparator in k(0)-standardization method. It includes a Doppler broadening effect correction. Based on an assumption of an isotropic neutron field, the epithermal neutron self-shielding factors in foils and wires of Co, Mo,(More)
In this study, antimicrobial activity of aminoreductone (AR), a product formed during the initial stage of the Maillard reaction, against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was evaluated. The significant growth inhibition of all 51 MRSA isolates irrespective of drug susceptibility by AR was observed. The minimum inhibitory concentration(More)
