Mushrooms have been used extensively, owing to their nutritional and medicinal value, for thousands of years. Modern research confirms the therapeutic effect of traditionally used species. Inflammation is a natural response of the immune system to damaging factors, e.g. physical, chemical and pathogenic. Deficiencies of antioxidants, vitamins, and microelements, as well as physiological processes, such as aging, can affect the body's ability to resolve inflammation. Mushrooms are rich in anti-inflammatory components, such as polysaccharides, phenolic and indolic compounds, mycosteroids, fatty acids, carotenoids, vitamins, and biometals...

Today clinicians have a variety of treatment modalities available to address the increasing number of implant procedures performed each year. Single-stage implant surgery is now commonly used in implant dentistry. With patient demands for immediate restoration, the utilization of 1-piece implants is gaining acceptance. This article reports the results of tapered 1-piece implants (Zimmer Biomet) placed in a single practice over a 10-year period. A total of 33 1-piece dental implants were placed in 24 patients and provisionally restored out of occlusion at the time of surgery...

Biometal dyshomeostasis and toxic metal accumulation are common features in many neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease. The neurotoxic effects of metal imbalance are generally associated with reduced enzymatic activities, elevated protein aggregation and oxidative stress in the central nervous system, in which a cascade of events lead to cell death and neurodegeneration. Although the links between biometal imbalance and neurodegenerative disorders remain elusive, a major class of endogenous proteins involved in metal transport has been receiving increasing attention over recent decades...

The zinc fingers proteins (ZNF) are the largest family of DNA binding proteins and can act as transcriptional factors in eukaryotes. ZNF are implicated in activation in response to environmental stimulus by biometals such as Zn(2+). Many of these proteins have the classical C2H2 zinc finger motifs (C2H2-ZNFm) of approximately 30 amino acids, where a Zn(2+) ion is coordinated by two cysteine and two histidine residues. Trichomonas vaginalis is a protozoan parasite than responds to environmental changes including Zn(2+)...

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are associated with bone extracellular matrix and impart osteoinductive properties to demineralized bone matrix (DBM) grafts. The first step of the osteoinductive process is BMP release from DBM in situ; however, this has not been characterized for human DBM. The authors investigated the release of BMPs 2, 4, and 7 from a clinical human DBM putty (Bonus II DBM, Biomet Inc, Warsaw, IN). The DBM was placed in Sorensen buffer and the BMP concentrations in the Sorensen buffer and guanidine extracts of the DBM were measured concurrently by enzymelinked immunosorbant assay for up to 7 days...

PURPOSE: The purpose of our study was to assess the changes in ocular parameters for different accommodative demands using a new optical biometer based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). METHODS: Seven subjects were included in this pilot study, and only one eye per participant was analyzed. Each eye was measured six times with the optical biometer IOLMaster 700 (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany). As this instrument is not able to change the vergence of the stimulus, to enable measurements at different accommodative states, a tilted first-surface mirror attached to the optical biometer was used to place the fixation stimulus at different vergences...

PURPOSE: Malalignment of implants is a major source of failure during total knee arthroplasty. To achieve more accurate 3D planning and execution of the osteotomy cuts during surgery, the Signature (Biomet, Warsaw) patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) was used to produce pin guides for the positioning of the osteotomy blocks by means of computer-aided manufacture based on CT scan images. The research question of this study is: what is the transfer accuracy of osteotomy planes predicted by the Signature PSI system for preoperative 3D planning and intraoperative block-guided pin placement to perform total knee arthroplasty procedures? METHODS: The transfer accuracy achieved by using the Signature PSI system was evaluated by comparing the osteotomy planes predicted preoperatively with the osteotomy planes seen intraoperatively in human cadaveric legs...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of adult neurode-generation and is characterised by progressive loss of cognitive function leading to death. The neuropathological hallmarks include extracellular amyloid plaque accumulation in affected regions of the brain, formation of intraneuronal neurofibrillary tangles, chronic neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, and abnormal biometal homeostasis. Of the latter, major changes in copper (Cu) levels and localisation have been identified in AD brain, with accumulation of Cu in amyloid deposits, together with deficiency of Cu in some brain regions...
