Noninvasive aspergillosis of the maxillary sinus is frequently associated with extrusion of root canal cements into the sinus, and it has been suggested that zinc oxide-based materials might promote infection because zinc is a growth factor for Aspergillus sp. To investigate this possibility pure zinc oxide-eugenol cement and five other cements were tested for antifungal activity against five strains of Aspergillus fumigatus, one strain of A. niger, and one strain of A. flavus by zone… CONTINUE READING
