Kiran kumarAbstractBackgroundRemineralizing agents are found to be effective in the remineralization of early enamel caries and the remineralized enamel crystallites are more resistant to decalcification and also have the same orientation as the original enamel crystallites. Although child formula fluoridated dentifrices are used safely by young children their remineralizing capability remains questionable.AimTo evaluate the remineralizing potential of three commercially available pediatric dentifrices on artificial carious lesions in primary teeth.Materials and methodsA total of fifty sound human primary teeth were coated with nail varnish leaving a window of 2 mm × 4 mm on buccal surface and were subjected to demineralization for a period of 96 h and then sectioned. Out of the hundred sections obtained, ninety sections are equally divided into three groups with thirty in each group: Group I (Colgate Spider man), Group II (Kids bunny), Group III (Kidodent) subjected to remineralization respectively for 10 days using pH cycling model. The sections were then evaluated under the stereomicroscope for the remineralization values using MICAP image analyser software.ResultsStatistical analysis was done by using ANOVA test which showed that all the three dentifrices showed remineralizat...

Family dinner frequency, family relationship, life satisfaction (LS), self-perceived health and anxiety were assessed by validated questionnaires. Of 14,274 participants, 50.6% were boys and 71.4% were urban residents, with a mean (SD) age of 12.28 (3.16) years. Family dinner frequency was significantly correlated with LS (boys: β = 0.27, p
In this study we explored the use of a natural compound rubusoside (RUB) as a solubilizer to enhance the solubility of a fluorescence-labeled C6-Ceramide (NBD C6-Ceramide) and to characterize its pharmacokinetics and tissue distribution in an animal model. RUB significantly enhanced the solubility of NBD C6-Ceramide by forming nanomicelles, and efficiently delivered NBD C6-Ceramide in rats by oral and intravenous administration. RUB loaded 1.96% of NBD C6-Ceramide in the nanomicelles and solubilized it to a concentration of 3.6 mg/mL in water. NBD C6-Ceramide in nanomicelles remained stable in aqueous solutions, all...

ConteAbstractInflammation ensuing from vascular injury promotes intimal hyperplasia (IH) and restenosis. Resolvin D1 (RvD1) is a lipid mediator that attenuates IH in vivo when delivered locally to the vessel wall in animal models. We tested the hypothesis that peri-procedural oral administration of RvD1 could blunt the local inflammatory response to angioplasty, and attenuate downstream IH. Carotid angioplasty was per...
