Ex Vivo Comparison of Antibacterial Efficacy of Conventional Chemomechanical Debridement Alone and in Combination with Light-Activated Disinfection and Laser Irradiation Against Enterococcus Faecalis Biofilm.

Intracanal disinfection plays an important role in endodontic treatment success. Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) is a resistant microorganism responsible for endodontic infections. We aimed to ass...

Antimicrobial and biofilm anti-adhesion activities of silver nanoparticles and farnesol against endodontic microorganisms for possible application in root canal treatment.

This study aimed to evaluate the antimicrobial and biofilm anti-adhesion activities of poly(vinyl alcohol)-coated silver nanoparticles (AgNPs-PVA) and farnesol against Enterococcus faecalis, Candida a...

Chitosan-based nitric oxide-releasing dressing for anti-biofilm and in vivo healing activities in MRSA biofilm-infected wounds.

Bacterial biofilms on wounds impair the healing process and often lead to chronic wounds. Chitosan is a well-known biopolymer with antimicrobial and anti-biofilm effects. S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) h...

The influence of substrate surface conditioning and biofilm age on the composition of Enterococcus faecalis biofilms.

To investigate the null hypothesis that neither the surface conditioning (collagen, serum, saliva) of HA discs, nor the biofilm age (3 days vs 21 days) have a significant effect on the cellular and ma...

An overview on anti-biofilm properties of quercetin against bacterial pathogens.

Bacterial biofilms are multicellular aggregates enclosed in a self-created biopolymer matrix. Biofilm-producing bacteria have become a great public health problem worldwide because biofilms enable the...

Comparison of Biofilm Characteristics Between an in Situ Biofilm Model of Supragingival Plaque and Natural Teeth

The purpose of this study is to determine in situ the bacterial viability, thickness and bacterial diversity of a biofilm formed on different substrates in comparison to a naturally tooth-...

Evaluation of Anti-biofilm Effects of Ferumoxytol (Feraheme) Using an in Situ Biofilm Demineralization Model

To evaluate the effects of a clinically approved and commercially available iron oxide formulation Ferumoxytol (Feraheme®) to control cariogenic biofilms and enamel demineralization. This...

Comparison Between the Vibringe and the Conventional Needle

The Vibringe is the first endodontic sonic irrigation system that enables delivery and activation of the irrigation solution in the root canal, in only one step. The activation of the disi...

Effectiveness and Safety of Collagen Complex COLLOST in Anti-age Therapy

This study evaluates the statistics of anti-age treatment in outpatient sites in Russia (involution indicators: clinical scales; instrumental diagnostics, ultrasonic scannings, assesment o...

Effectiveness of Photodynamic Therapy for Endodontic Treatment of Deciduous Teeth

The elimination of pathogenic microorganisms from the root canal system is one of the main points in order to have success in endodontic treatment. The objective of this study is to perfor...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.

A fibrillar collagen found widely distributed as a minor component in tissues that contain COLLAGEN TYPE I and COLLAGEN TYPE III. It is a heterotrimeric molecule composed of alpha1(V), alpha2(V) and alpha3(V) subunits. Several forms of collagen type V exist depending upon the composition of the subunits that form the trimer.

A cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist with little effect on the bronchial receptors. The drug has stabilizing and quinidine-like effects on cardiac rhythm as well as weak inherent sympathomimetic action.

A fibrin-stabilizing plasma enzyme (TRANSGLUTAMINASES) that is activated by THROMBIN and CALCIUM to form FACTOR XIIIA. It is important for stabilizing the formation of the fibrin polymer (clot) which culminates the coagulation cascade.

A class I anti-arrhythmic agent (one that interferes directly with the depolarization of the cardiac membrane and thus serves as a membrane-stabilizing agent) with a depressant action on the heart similar to that of guanidine. It also possesses some anticholinergic and local anesthetic properties.
