Permeability of different types of medical protective gloves to acrylic monomers -

Skin contact with monomers can cause hand eczema, and the protection given by gloves manufactured from different types of material is not well known. The aim of this study was to determine the breakthrough time (BTT, min) as a measure of protection (according to the EU standard EN-374-3) for a mixture consisting of MMA, EGDMA and 1,4-BDMA.

Cytotoxicity of liquids and powders of chemically different dental materials evaluated using dimethylthiazol diphenyltetrazolium and neutral red tests. -

The purpose of this study was to assess and compare the cytotoxicity of liquid and powder components of chemically different dental materials using 2 basic unspecific cell culture methods. Three chemically cured glass ionomers (Fuji II, Lining cement, and Ketac Silver), 1 light-cured glass ionomer (Fuji II LC), and 2 chemically cured acrylates (Swedon and Super Bond) were tested.
