On the biocompatibility of endodontic sealers
This study aimed to investigate the effects of different root canal sealers and their eluates on human alveolar osteoblasts in terms of cell proliferation, adhesion, morphology and gene expression in vitro. Five endodontic sealers (AH Plus ®, Apexit®, Tubli-Seal®, Real Seal SE®, EndoRez®) and one gutta-percha obturation material (BeeFill®) were tested. Human alveolar osteoblasts derived from 3 different donors following incubation with sealer eluates after 24 h and 72 h were investigated by means of qPCR (gene expression). Morph ological reactions of the alveolar osteoblasts were measured by culturing the cells for 3...

New US lab to create versions of atoms never recorded on Earth
By studying isotopes scientists hope to gain insight into how elements within exploding stars came to beFrom carbon to uranium, oxygen to iron, chemical elements are the building blocks of the world around us and the wider universe. Now, physicists are hoping to gain an unprecedented glimpse into their origins, with the opening of a new facility that will create thousands of peculiar and unstable versions of atoms never before recorded on Earth.By studying these versions, known as isotopes, they hope to gain new insights into the reactions that created theelements within exploding stars, as well as testing theories about t...

Enzyme in babies ’ blood linked to risk of sudden infant death syndrome
Scientists find babies who died from Sids had lower levels of BChE on average, but say link ‘needs more investigation’Scientists may have come a step closer to uncovering the causes for sudden infant death syndrome in a study that has been hailed as a significant advance by the British scientist whose work underpinned the Back to Sleep campaign of the 1990s.The study is the first to identify a biochemical marker in the blood that is linked to the risk of Sids, sometimes called cot death, when an apparently healthy infant dies during their sleep. Although the test is not accurate enough to be used in newborn screening, ...

State Laws Are Treating Fentanyl Like the New Crack —And Making the Same Mistakes of the 80s and 90s
Since the U.S. drug war was declared in 1971, various drugs have been identified as public enemy number one—from crack cocaine, in the 1980s, to prescription opioids in the early 2000s. Today, the primary villain is fentanyl, a synthetic opioid about 50 times more potent than heroin. In 2021, more than 71,000 people in the U.S. died after overdoses involving synthetic opioids—mostly fentanyl, according to provisional data released by the National Center for Health Statistics on May 11. Such a deadly drug necessitates a firm public health response, and fortunately, decades of evidence have shown there are tools ...
