KeithAbstractUnilateral condylar hyperplasia is a rare disease that causes facial asymmetry as a result of excessive vertical or horizontal growth, or both, of the mandibular condyle. Investigation should address the patient’s concerns, and establish whether the disease is active with the use of single positron emission tomography (PET). Proportional reduction of the condyle arrests active disease and restores mandibular height, and any residual asymmetr...

Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of a novel ultrasonic tip as an auxiliary method for removing filling material from flattened/oval-shaped canals. The null hypothesis tested was that this method does not influence removing the filling material in flattened/oval-shaped canals. Forty-five mandibular incisors were selected and randomly divided into three experimental groups (n = 15) according to different protocols for removing root canal filling material. Group R: Reciproc R25/.08, Group RC: Reciproc R25/.08 + Clearsonic tip, and Group CR: Clearsonic tip + Reciproc R25/.08. The teeth were scanned ...

Publication date: November 2018Source: Materials Research Bulletin, Volume 107Author(s): Xin Li, Jing Zhao, Zaisheng Cai, Fengyan GeAbstractAn easy one-step pyrolysis method without any activation was employed to convert a waste dyed silk fabric into an interconnected hierarchically porous free-standing carbon fabric. As a result, nitrogen and oxygen co-doped carbonized dyed silk fabric with blue dye (CSF-B) exhibits a high specific capacitance of 305.02 F g−1 at a scan rate of 2 mV s−1 using 1 M Na2SO4 electrolyte and a good cycling life stability with only 10% capacitance lo...

RaghuAbstractHere, we report simple hydrothermal method for the preparation of Graphene oxide (GO) is embellished with nanostring clusters of ruthenium oxide (GO-RuO2). The structure of the nanocomposite material was ascertained using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, Scanning electron spectroscopy (SEM), Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and Transmission spectroscopy (TEM). The supercapacitor performance of the nanocomposites was investigated in ac...

The PVDF/ENR50 blends were dynamically cross-linked with phenolic resin in varying amounts from 0 to 11 phr. It was found that 5 phr phenolic resin was optimal for superior mechanical properties of the PVDF/ENR50 blends. Dynamically cured PVDF/ENR50 blends w...

In this study, a recombinant antimicrobial peptide, branded as Funme peptide (FP)was applied to protect PIF from Cs contamination. The result from the antimicrobial activity assay showed that the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of BMAP-27 peptide, FP and Ampicillin against Cs were 250.0, 125.0 and 15.6 μg/mL, respectively, indicating FP possessed higher MIC than that of Ampicillin, and lower MIC than that of BMAP-27. The minimum biofilm eradication concentration (MBEC) assay showed that FP at 2 × MIC (250.0 μg/mL) could completely eradicated Cs biofilms. The antibacterial activity of FP might be ...

Then, the bio-control of ethanol on A. fumigatus for significantly reducing consumer health risk was investigated. Susceptibility of the mold to evaporated vapor-phase ethanol (EVE) was examined in vitro. Complete elimination of viable spore and inhibition growth spread on Potato Dextrose Agar at 30±2 °C of were found with exposure for 15 min to EVE (10.80+0.3 mmol/L). Th...

However, some regulatory systems fail to instil public confidence. In China for example, trust in the domestic food system is low as a consequence of multiple high-profile food scandals, many of which linked to food fraud. Fraud occurs when food is intentionally a...
