Nrf2 Signaling and Cytoprotection in Human Epithelial Airway Cells Exposed to HEMA -

Methacrylates are common constituents of resin-based biomaterials. These materials cure by polymerization of methacrylate monomers, but incomplete polymerization causes leakage and patient exposure to the electrophile monomers.

Polymer based restorative materials – a study of important properties -

The composition, leachable products, and physical properties of toothcoloured restorative materials have been determined. The composition was often found to be more complex than described in the MSDS of the materials. The most frequently used monomers such as TEGDMA, Bis-GMA, Bis-EMA, UDMA, and 2-HEMA were detected, as well as several other monomers and different additives (initiators, activators, and stabilizers). The initiator camphoroquinone was found in all the investigated materials. B
