The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of rigidity of post core systems on stress distribution by the theoretical technique, finite element stress-analysis method. Three-dimensional finite element models simulating an endodontically treated maxillary central incisor restored with a zirconia ceramic crown were prepared and 1.5 mm ferrule(More)
In the present authors' previous study, sonicated Enterococcus faecalis extracts were shown to suppress the cell cycle progression of human lymphocytes. To study the effect of this microorganism on the function of lymphocytes, the authors investigated the levels of interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interleukin-4 (IL-4) production by T lymphocytes before and after(More)
This study was undertaken to investigate immunopathologic mechanism of Enterococcus faecalis in relation to persistent apical periodontitis. We monitored the expression levels of alpha4 integrin in human polymorphonuclear neutophils (PMNs) after stimulated with sonicated extracts of E. faecalis (SEF) and compared with lipopolycaccarides (LPS) of Escherichia(More)
