2014-07-23 21:09:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Simvastatin has been reported to promote osteoblastic activity and inhibit osteoclastic activity by enhancing the expression of BMP2. There have been many studies demonstrating the bone-promoting effect of local application various animal models including after application into socket of teeth in a rat. the purpose of the study is to investigate the effect of slow release topical simvastatin in socket of mandibular teeth on bone remodeling in the socket

Description

after extraction of mandibular single root teeth 10 mg of slow release simvastatin would be inserted to the socket. observation will be at 1 week, 4 weeks and 3 months.after 3 months the patients will have dental CT as done routinely in our clinic before placing dental implants and the bone density and height will be measured on this data. during the procedure of inserting a dental implant a trephine will be taken for histology.

A derivative of LOVASTATIN and potent competitive inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL COA REDUCTASES), which is the rate-limiting enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis. It may also interfere with steroid hormone production. Due to the induction of hepatic LDL RECEPTORS, it increases breakdown of LDL CHOLESTEROL.

A condition with abnormally high levels of CHOLESTEROL in the blood. It is defined as a cholesterol value exceeding the 95th percentile for the population.

A HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA-REDUCTASE INHIBITOR, or statin, that reduces the plasma concentrations of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B, and TRIGLYCERIDES while increasing HDL-CHOLESTEROL levels in patients with HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and those at risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
