Agenesis: pilot case report by 2.9 mm implant.
Authors: Zanotti G, Gelpi F, Sinigaglia S, Croce S, Tacchino U, Perozeni G, Luciano U, De Santis D Abstract The agenesis of the upper lateral incisor is one of the most frequent aesthetic-functional problems in dentistry. The reported case concerns a 49 years old male patient with bilateral agenesis of teeth 1.2-2.2 and a root stump of tooth 5.2 temporarily rehabilitated through a Maryland bridge. Without orthodontic treatment, the only solution for implant-prosthetic rehabilitation of tooth 1.2 results therefore in the use of a 2.9 mm diameter implant. The clinical and radiographic control of the implant and the g...

These modifications include morphological changes, accompanied by differential expression of genes, encoding proteins which are mainly involved in cell growth, proliferation and differentiation. Recent data bring a new insight into the aspects of GCs' stem-like specificity and pla...

Authors: Zhang JC, Li WX, Wu L, Liu X, Zhang L Abstract The role of Grb2-associated binder 1 (Gab1) in bFGF-activated PI3K-AKT pathway of endothelial cells remains largely unknown. To elucidate this role, a set of studies with siRNA knockdown of Gab1 was performed. Knockdown of Gab1 using siRNA was performed in fused endothelial cell line EA.hy926 and the low level of Gab1 was confirmed with quantitative R-T PCR and Western blotting. Effects of Gab1 down-regulation were examined on several aspects: bFGF-induced AKT phosphorylation, proliferation, migration and vessel tubing formation of EA.hy926 cells. The bFGF-ind...

Interleukin-1 family cytokines and mast cells: activation and inhibition.
Authors: Gallenga CE, Pandolfi F, Caraffa A, Kritas SK, Ronconi G, Toniato E, Martinotti S, Conti P Abstract Activated mast cells (MCs) secrete a number of compounds including pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. MCs are a potential source of cytokines and chemokines which participate in allergic reactions and inflammation. MCs can be activated by IgE through its receptor FceRI, but also by Toll-like receptors and/or interleukin (IL)-1. MCs can be a target for both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. IL-1 activates MCs to release inflammatory chemical mediators, and cytokines/chemokines, ...

Implant conometric connection through innovative prosthetic abutment: biological, clinical, surgical, and prosthetic aspects.
Authors: Giannetti L, Spinas E, Murri Dello Diago A, Consolo U, Generali L Abstract The aim of this work was to describe the rehabilitation of a superior monoedentulia by positioning a conometric connection implant and a prosthetic crown using CAD/CAM technique. Surgical steps are explained and the biological aspects of this particular morse conometrical connection are evaluated, with particular attention to the possibility of removing the crown by means of an innovative attachment hole in the abutment. This type of monoedentulia can now be solved by implant-prosthetic replacement, and the dentist must choose the m...

Delayed-enhancement 320 row volume multidetector computed tomography for the assessment of reperfused acute and old myocardial infarction in a porcine model.
Authors: Guo DL, Gong ZW, Zhang T, Xue L, Tong JL, Li XQ Abstract The aim of this work was to describe the rehabilitation of a superior monoedentulia by positioning a conometric connection implant and a prosthetic crown using CAD/CAM technique. Surgical steps are explained and the biological aspects of this particular morse conometrical connection are evaluated, with particular attention to the possibility of removing the crown by means of an innovative attachment hole in the abutment. This type of monoedentulia can now be solved by implant-prosthetic replacement, and the dentist must choose the most suitable impla...
