The Restorability Assessment and Endodontic Access Cavity Interface.

Successful root canal treatment requires management of the bacterial infection within the root canal space and protection of residual tooth structure with direct/indirect restorations. Long-term success depends upon prevention of re-infection of the root canal space as well as ensuring favourable distribution of the occlusal forces throughout the residual tooth structure. Appropriate planning and design of the final restoration prior to initiating root canal treatment is paramount in achieving this objectiv...

Thiyl Radical-Based Charge Tagging Enables Rapid Sterol Quantitation via Mass Spectrometry.

Inspired by the high reactivity and specificity of thiyl radicals toward alkenes, we have developed a new charge derivatization meth-od to enable fast and quantitative analysis of sterols via electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Thioglycolic acid (TGA), a commercially available compound, has been established as a highly efficient tagging reagent. Initiated from photochemical reactions, the thiyl radical derived from TGA abstracts an allylic hydrogen in the B ring of sterols, forming a radical...


Wearable Nanoplasmonic Patch-Detecting Sun / UV Exposure.

Sun exposure is known to yield beneficial health outcomes, including synthesis of adequate levels of vitamin D, beneficial modulation of blood pressure and is a valuable factor in mental health care. However, the increasing incidence of sun/UV exposure-related illness, such as skin cancer, is seriously concerning public health authorities as well as the scientific community. Consequently, moderate sun/UV exposure is strongly recommended. A wearable nanoplasmonic patch whose original color changes upon sun e...

Visible-Light-Induced Aza-Pinacol Rearrangement: Ring Expansion of Alkylidenecyclopropanes.

A novel visible-light-induced aza-pinacol rearrangement was developed for the first time. In this approach, the addition of the N-centered radical to the C═C bond of alkylidenecyclopropanes delivers a variety of cyclobutanimines and γ-butyrolactones, with all-carbon quaternary centers via the ring expansion of the cyclopropyl group, in moderate to good yields under mild reaction conditions.

Functional and Targeted Lymph Node Imaging in Prostate Cancer: Current Status and Future Challenges.

Patients with prostate cancer who have regional lymph node (LN) metastases face an increased risk of death from disease and are therefore treated aggressively. Surgical LN dissection is the established method of staging regional nodes; however, this invasive technique carries substantial morbidities and a noninvasive imaging method is needed to reduce or eliminate the need for extended pelvic LN dissections (ePLND). Conventional computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging have proven insensitive...
