BACKGROUND: Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory response to bacterial biofilm resulting in bone loss and can ultimately lead to implant failure. Due to the lack of predictable treatments available, a thorough understanding of peri-implantitis's pathogenesis is essential. The objective of this study is to evaluate and compare the response of acute induced peri-implantitis and periodontitis lesions after insult removal. METHODS: Implants were placed in one-month-old C57BL/6J male mice eight weeks post extraction of their left maxillary molars...

Calcific aortic vasculopathy correlates with bone loss in osteoporosis in an age-independent manner. Prior work suggests that teriparatide, the bone anabolic treatment for postmenopausal osteoporosis, may inhibit onset of aortic calcification. Whether teriparatide affects progression of pre-existing aortic calcification, widespread among this patient population, is unknown. Female apolipoprotein E-deficient mice were aged for over one year to induce aortic calcification, treated for 4.5 weeks with daily injections of control vehicle (PBS), teriparatide 40 µg/kg (PTH40) or 400 µg/kg (PTH400), and assayed for aortic calcification by micro-computed tomography (microCT) before and after treatment...

A majority of patients with orofacial cleft deformity requires cleft repair through a bone graft. However, elevated amount of bone resorption and subsequent bone graft failure remains a significant clinical challenge. Bisphosphonates (BPs), a class of anti-resorptive drugs, may offer great promise in enhancing the clinical success of bone grafting. In this study, we compared the effects of systemic and local delivery of BPs in an intraoral bone graft model in rats. We randomly divided 34 female 20-week-old Fischer F344 Inbred rats into four groups to repair an intraoral critical-sized defect (CSD): (1) Control: CSD without graft (n = 4); (2) Graft/Saline: bone graft with systemic administration of saline 1 week post-operatively (n = 10); (3) Graft/Systemic: bone graft with systemic administration of zoledronic acid 1 week post-operatively (n = 10); and (4) Graft/Local: bone graft pre-treated with zoledronic acid (n = 10)...

Osteonecrosis is the devitalization of bone and consequent lytic changes. In the jaws, osteonecrosis is a pathologic consequence of prior radiation therapy (osteoradionecrosis) or certain antiresorptive medications. Herein, we review the pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of these lesions, and describe the spectrum of radiologic findings in these conditions, and highlight the similarities and differences between the imaging appearances of these 2 entities.

Osteonecrosis of the jaws (ONJ) is a rare but severe complication of antiresorptive medications, such as bisphosphonates, used in the treatment of bone malignancy or osteoporosis. Tooth extraction and dental disease have been strongly associated with ONJ development. Here, we investigated molecular and cellular markers of socket healing after extraction of healthy or teeth with experimental periodontitis (EP) in Wistar-Han rats treated with zoledronic acid (ZA). We included 4 experimental groups: vehicle-treated animals with extraction of healthy teeth or teeth with ligature-induced EP and ZA-treated animals with extraction of healthy teeth or teeth with EP...

Systemically delivered NEL-like molecule-1 (NELL-1), a potent pro-osteogenic protein, promotes bone formation in healthy and osteoporotic mouse models. PEGylation of NELL-1 (NELL-PEG) increases the half-life of the protein in a mouse model without compromising its osteogenic potential, thereby improving its pharmacokinetics upon systemic delivery. This study consists of a twofold approach: a biodistribution test and an in vivo osteogenic potential test. The biodistribution test compared two commonly used administration methods for drug delivery other than intravenous-intraperitoneal (IP) and subcutaneous (SC)-to examine NELL-PEG biodistribution in mice...

Osteonecrosis of the jaws (ONJ) is a complication of antiresorptive medications, such as denosumab or bisphosphonates, prescribed to patients with bone malignancy or osteoporosis. The most common instigating local factor in ONJ pathogenesis is tooth extraction. However, in adults the great majority of teeth are extracted due to dental disease. Here, we have investigated alveolar bone healing after extraction of healthy teeth or teeth with naturally occurring periradicular disease in mice treated with high dose zoledronic acid (ZA), a potent bisphosphonate, or OPG-Fc, a RANKL inhibitor...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune inflammatory disorder, results in persistent synovitis with severe bone and cartilage destruction. Bisphosphonates (BPs) are often utilized in RA patients to reduce bone destruction and manage osteoporosis. However, BPs, especially at high doses, are associated with osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ). Here, utilizing previously published ONJ animal models, we are exploring interactions between RA and ONJ incidence and severity. DBA1/J mice were divided into four groups: control, zoledronic acid (ZA), collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), and CIA-ZA...

The differentiation factor NEL-like molecule-1 (NELL-1) has been reported as osteoinductive in multiple in vivo preclinical models. Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 is used clinically for skeletal repair, but in vivo administration can induce abnormal, adipose-filled, poor-quality bone. We demonstrate that NELL-1 combined with BMP2 significantly optimizes osteogenesis in a rodent femoral segmental defect model by minimizing the formation of BMP2-induced adipose-filled cystlike bone. In vitro studies using the mouse bone marrow stromal cell line M2-10B4 and human primary bone marrow stromal cells have confirmed that NELL-1 enhances BMP2-induced osteogenesis and inhibits BMP2-induced adipogenesis...
