Activity of Platelet Activating Factor Acetylhydrolase Following Phase I Periodontal Therapy

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.169
Pages: 
62–7
Synopsis: 
Platelet activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) is detectable in gingival crevicular fluid by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and showed a continuous decrease following phase I periodontal therapy. Changes in the PAF-AH activity would be a progressive marker of periodontal healing to evaluate the success of periodontal therapies.

Mathematical Model for Osteobstruction in Bone Regeneration Mechanisms: A Headway in Skeletal Tissue Engineering

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.051
Pages: 
814–20
Synopsis: 
In this paper, mathematical models are formulated for the Ogunsalu osteobstruction phenomenon. Mathematical modelling could be used to predict, interpret and generalize the results of osteobstructive mechanism in bone regeneration.

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.177
Pages: 
631–4
Synopsis: 
Orthodontic requirements of Trinidad and Tobago were estimated by using results from a questionnaire study of orthodontists and the results of another study on orthodontic treatment needs of children in this country. Trinidad and Tobago’s orthodontic personnel should be quadrupled.

Estimation of the Levels of C-reactive Protein, Interleukin-6, Total Leukocyte Count, and Differential Count in Peripheral Blood Smear of Patients with Chronic Periodontitis in a South Indian Population

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.096
Pages: 
826–31
Synopsis: 
Periodontitis results in higher systemic levels of C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, total leukocyte count and neutrophils. These elevated inflammatory factors may increase inflammatory activity in atherosclerotic lesions, potentially increasing the risk for cardiovascular events.

ABSTRACT

Aims: The aim of the present study is to investigate systemic levels of inflammatory markers of cardiovascular diseases like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), total leukocyte count and differential count in patients with chronic periodontitis, in comparison to healthy individuals without periodontal disease.

Antibacterial Effects of Several Current Orthodontic Materials against Streptococcus mutans

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.094
Pages: 
821–5
Synopsis: 
The antibacterial activities of several orthodontic materials were tested against Streptococcus mutans, which is heavily implicated in dental caries. Results show that not all orthodontic materials exhibit clinically significant antibacterial effects
