Molecules that are more often known for their potential to cause cancer may have a new, health-promoting role. Scientists are now discovering how these «radicals» may be used to prevent infections and promote the long-term success of dental implants.
David Wiedmer has publicly defended his doctoral dissertation TiO2 dark catalysis in biomedical applications. Department of Biomaterials congratulates David on his great achievement!
Biomaterials hosts an open seminar on bone-anchored implants and the ramifications of increasing antimicrobial resistance on implant-related infections.
Department of Oral Biology was recently awarded a significant grant to another project managed by Professor Fernanda Petersen.
Group of enthusiastic biomaterials researchers and microbiologists joined their forces last week to discuss the future challenges related to implantable medical devices in the world without antibiotics.
An artificial molecule can impair the E.coli-bacteria’s aptitude to cause illness. This may have wider impact than solely for the illnesses this bacteria causes. The discovery may also prove a valuable contribution in the struggle against the increasing threat from antibiotics resistance.
A randomized, blinded, four-arm, placebo controlled trial.
Fimbriae are essential virulence factors in the major periodontopathogen P. gingivalis, providing attachment to host tissue. The structure of fimbriae may determine to what extent this organism attach to such tissue.
During periodontitis sites that will break down or will be repaired are difficult to predict.
There is a clear relationship between periodontitis and cardiovascular diseases but the factors contributing to this relationship are not well known.
