.Abstract Curcumin loaded alginate foams are proposed for application in antimicrobial photodynamic therapy of infected wounds. The drug loaded foams were formulated to provide a burst release of the photosensitizer when hydrated. The foams remained intact after hydration and would be possible to remove from the wound prior to irradiation without causing any tissue damage. The characterization […]
An experimental dental adhesive incorporated with methacrylated chitosan significantly reduced biofilm formation compared to control, and it may be useful in prevention of secondary caries development.
In this study we aimed to further map the suggested relation between GSH-depletion and methacrylate toxicity by comparing the molecular effects of methacrylate exposure and GSH-depletion by inhibiting GSH-synthesis.
We are daily exposed to a variety of chemicals. One example is the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA). Animal studies indicate that BPA has effects on liver, kidney and breast tissue. Possible endocrine disruption effects contribute to uncertainty around BPA.
HEMA reduced GSH levels and decreased IL-1β release from LPS-stimulated macrophages. The role of GSH in the regulation of IL-1β release was explored. GSH depletion alone could not explain the attenuation of LPS-induced IL-1β release. Electrophile reactivity toward other cellular molecules is a new working hypothesis
The study aimed to investigate dentists’ exposure to curing light and to obtain information about the dentists’ knowledge on practical use and technical features of their curing lights as well as their safety awareness.
