Hesperetin (3',5,7-trihydroxy-4-methoxyflavanone) is a metabolite of hesperidin (hesperetin-7-O-rutinoside), which belongs to the flavanone subgroup and is found mainly in citrus fruits. Hesperetin has been reported to be an effective osteoinductive compound in various in vivo and in vitro models. However, how hesperetin effects osteogenic differentiation(More)
PURPOSE the purpose of this retrospective study was to examine the possibility of utilizing serum C-terminal telopeptide cross-link of type I collagen (s-CTX) and serum osteocalcin (s-OC) as risk markers for oral bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ). PATIENTS AND METHODS the s-CTX values and the s-OC values were measured from 23(More)
Astragalin and astragalosides were measured in Radix Astragali using reversed-phase chromatography coupled with pulsed amperometric detection. Because the target compounds showed poor stability in aqueous solutions, they were extracted in 100% methanol under reflux. All compounds were detected with high sensitivity under highly alkaline conditions using(More)
A simple and sensitive reversed-phase (RP) HPLC coupled with pulsed amperometric detection (PAD) method was developed to determine the saikosaponin content in Bupleuri Radix or Caihu-shugan-san. Four saikosaponins in Bupleuri Radix and Caihu-shugan-san were extracted with a 6:4 solution of 10 mM sodium phosphate buffer (pH 8)/100% ethanol. Pulsed(More)
Increased interleukin (IL)-17 and IL-23 levels exist in the gingival tissue of periodontitis patients, but the precise molecular mechanisms that regulate IL-17 and IL-23 production remain unknown. The aim of this study was to explore the role of SIRT1 signaling on Porphyromonas gingivalis lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced IL-17 and IL-23 production in human(More)
PURPOSES To investigate the distribution of modifiable oral and general health risk behaviors according to socioeconomic status and to examine the extent of clustering of risk behaviors among Korean adolescents. METHODS Self-reported data from 71,404 adolescents were obtained using a stratified cluster sample of students in the 7th to 12th grades who(More)
Astragalosides are among the most predominant of the bioactive compounds in the root of Astragalus membranaceus and are differentially concentrated depending on the anatomical part of the root in question. The aim of this study was to analyse astragaloside contents in the periderm, cortex, and xylem of A. membranaceus root, and to compare the contents(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the association of chewing ability to oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) measured by the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14) controlling for clinical oral health status, self-reported health status, demographic factors, and socioeconomic conditions among community-dwelling and institutionalized(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of a composite nanofibrous matrix made of biopolymer blend polycaprolactone-gelatin (BP) and mesoporous bioactive glass nanoparticles (BGNs) on the odontogenic differentiation of human dental pulp cells (HDPCs). BGN-BP nanomatrices, with BGN content of up to 20 wt%, were produced via(More)
OBJECTIVES   To provide information on how to teach correct oral health behaviour to youths and to develop programmes to that end, this study examined the oral health behaviour and demographic characteristics of adolescents. METHODS   The raw data of 'The Third 2007 Youth Health Behavior Online Survey' carried out by the Korea Center for Disease Control(More)
