Peri-implantitis is characterized by inflammatory lesions in peri-implant tissues and loss of supporting bone. The aims of the present series of studies were to analyze (i) spontaneous progression and (ii) the effect of ...
The role of S100A4 protein as a regulator of inflammation and bone metabolism in experimental arthritis
S100A4 belongs to the family of calcium-binding S100 proteins and modulates cell proliferation, cytoskeletal rearrangement, cell motility, and angiogenesis. Increased levels of S100A4 expression correlate with high ...
In vitro wound healing characteristics of amelogenins
Wound healing involves the co-ordinated actions of several cell types, soluble cell mediators and extracellular matrix (ECM). This research project intended to investigate the role of certain ECM proteins in different ...
