Appropriate regeneration of periodontal tissues is the primary purpose of periodontal disease treatment. The present study assessed the impact of three key regenerative elements-platelet-rich plasma (PRP), canine bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (cBM-MSCs), and fibrin glue-on periodontal regeneration. In each of the study's five dogs, Class II furcation defects were established on the buccal surface of five teeth. One tooth (five total) from each dog was placed into one of five groups: (1) PRP + fibrin glue, (2) PRP + fibrin glue + cBM-MSCs, (3) fibrin glue, (4) cBM-MSCs + fibrin glue, and (5) control (no treatment)...

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is the main mineral component of bone and teeth. HA is often used as a bone substitute and especially in its granular form it is osteoconductive and osseointegrating as shown by many investigations in animals and humans. HA granules are used for filling bone defects, but they have poor handling qualities and retention at the surgical site, leading to graft voids between the granules and bone tissue and resulting in mechanical instability. Furthermore HA implantation is not constantly followed by favorable results, especially when it is carried out for augmentation of the alveolar ridge...

Recent advances in the development of protein-based vaccines have expanded the opportunities for preventing and treating both infectious diseases as well as cancer. However, the development of readily and efficient antigen delivery systems capable of stimulating strong cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) responses remains a challenge. With the attempt to closely mimic the properties of viruses in terms of their size and molecular organization, we constructed RNA (which is a ligand for Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) and TLR8) and antigen-loaded nanoparticles resembling the structural organization of viruses...

We established widely applicable DNA extraction methods to identify the origins of crude drugs derived from animals. Twenty-one samples including 17 kinds of crude drug derived from animals were examined. DNA was extracted from most of the crude drugs by adjustment of the QIAamp® DNA Mini Kit. DNA extraction was performed successfully using phenol to remove impurities after applying a proteinase treatment. DNA extraction was performed successfully by decalcification treatment using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), before applying the proteinase treatment for crude drugs having high calcium content, such as those from oyster shell and cuttlefish bone...

BACKGROUND: The facial bone has a complex structure compared to other bones, and various types of fractures can occur due to its characteristics. Among them, in comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall, multiple depressed and impacted bony segments cannot be reduced easily when performing internal fixation using plates and screws or wires, and inadequate restoration leads to a range of complications. This paper introduces an alternative technique using a resorbable mesh with fibrin glue to restore comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall...

Serious hemorrhage after a bone biopsy is a rare complication of the procedure. Due to the infrequency of this complication, there is limited literature available regarding the treatment. Here, we present a case of a 70-year-old male who developed a symptomatic gluteal hematoma after an iliac bone lesion biopsy. Hemostasis was achieved by injecting an N-butyl cyanoacrylate glue solution into the bone cannulation site under CT-guidance.

Surgical implants are essential elements of repair procedures to correct worn out joints, damaged spinal components, heart and vascular disease, and chronic pain. However, many of the materials that provide stability, flexibility, and durability to the implants are also immunogenic. Fortunately, allergic responses to surgical implants are infrequent. When they do occur, however, the associated pain, swelling, inflammation, and decreased range of motion can significantly impair the implant function. Given the high numbers of joint replacements performed in the developed world, allergic reactions to orthopedic implants form the largest category of allergic responses...

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries bones were an essential raw material for the German chemical industry, vital to the production of fertilizer, glue, gelatine, soap and other products. As most of this material was imported, the German school system during the "Third Reich" took the utilisation of bones as an example to illustrate the relevance of the four-year plan of 1936 and its policy of economic self-sufficiency. The school children were encouraged to collect bones from domestic sources and bring them to the collecting points in the schools...
