Injectable systems receive attention in endodontics due to the complicated and irregular anatomical structure of root canals. Here, injectable Tideglusib (Td)-loaded hyaluronic acid hydrogels (HAH) incorporated with Rg1loaded chitosan microspheres (CSM) were developed for vital pulp regeneration, providing release of Td and Rg1 to trigger odontoblastic differentiation of human dental pulp stem cells (DPSC) by Td and vascularization of pulp by Rg1. The optimal concentrations were determined as 90 nM and 50 mu g/mL for Td and Rg1, and loaded in HA and CSM in HAH, respectively. Odontogenic (COL1A1, ALP, OCN, Axin-2, DSPP, and DMP1) and angiogenic (VEGFA, VEGFR2, and eNOS) differentiation of DPSC cultured in the presence of hydrogels was shown at gene expression level. Our results suggest that our injectable hydrogel formulation has potential to improve strategies for vital pulp regeneration. In vivo evaluations are needed to test the feasibility and potential of these hydrogels for vital pulp regeneration.

In this study, the major goal was to evaluate in vitro and in vivo findings by macroscopy, radiology, and histology to determine the effectiveness of therapy of experimental implant-related osteomyelitis with antibiotic carrier rods constructed of microbial polyesters. The polymers used were poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxyvalerate) [P(3HB-co-4-HB)] and poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxy-valerate) [P(3-HB-co-3-HV)]. Both the Sulperazone(R) and the Duocid(R)-P(3-HB-co-4-HB) rods with a drug to polymer ra...

Background: Zoledronic acid is an important osteotropic compound used in combination with anticancer agents to reduce the incidence of hypercalcemia and skeletal morbidity in patients with advanced breast cancer and bone metastases. Ineffectiveness of anticancer drugs during chemotherapy is a frequently observed situation in cancer chemotherapy. The resistance of tumor cells to more than one cytotoxic drugs is defined as multidrug resistance. Drug resistance may be caused by altered gene expression levels a...
In vitro evaluation of effects of sustained anti-TNF release from MPEG-PCL-MPEG and PCL microspheres on human rheumatoid arthritis synoviocytes

Anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) drugs such as etanercept (ETN) have been mostly used in systemic treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. To eliminate the side effects in long-term treatments and to achieve a local sustained anti-inflammatory effect, a controlled drug delivery system is needed for anti-TNF drugs. This study aims to develop novel injectable microcarriers of ETN that can provide long-term controlled release of this protein drug upon intra-articular application. In this study, poly(epsilon-caprolac...
In Vivo Performance of Poly(epsilon-caprolactone) Constructs Loaded with Gentamicin Releasing Composite Microspheres for Use in Bone Regeneration

For materials used in the production of dental and orthopedic implants or scaffolds for bone tissue regeneration, the properties such as capacity to enhance cell attachment and proliferation, and antimicrobial activity to prevent biofilm formation are very important to improve the clinical utility of the material. In this study, poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) sponges with antimicrobial activity were prepared by incorporating gentamicin loaded beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP)-Gelatin microspheres, and ...

This study investigated the immunohistochemical staining characteristics of glutathione-S-transferase alpha, pi, mu, theta and p53 in non-small cell lung carcinoma and normal lung tissue from 50 patients. The relationships between expressions of the Glutathione-S-transferase isoenzymes and some clinicopathological features were also examined. Expression of glutathione-S-transferase pi, mu, alpha, theta and p53 was assessed by immunohistochemistry for primary lung carcinomas of 50 patients from the Sanitariu...
