Objective. To evaluate the effect of chemically modified tetracycline-3 (CMT-3) and simvastatin on tooth relapse after orthodontic movement in rats using a novel analysis method employing high-resolution micro-CT (Micro-CT) images. In addition, the correlation between bone density and orthodontic relapse was also evaluated for each experimental group. Methods. Forty adult male Wistar rats had stainless steel springs installed on their left upper first molars in order to generate tooth movement f...
Background Resistant hypertension is characterized when the blood pressure (BP) remains above the recommended goal after taking three antihypertensive drugs with synergistic actions at their maximum recommended tolerated doses, preferably including a diuretic. Identifying the contribution of intravascular volume and serum renin in maintaining BP levels could help tailor more effective hypertension treatment, whether acting on the control of intravascular volume or sodium balance, or acting on th...

Abstract We sought to investigate whether the polymorphisms rs243865 (− 1306C > T); rs243866 (− 1575G > A) and rs2285053 (− 735C > T) in metalloproteinases 2 - MMP-2 gene and rs17576 (Q279R), rs17577 (Q668R) and rs3918242 (− 1562C > T) in MMP-9 gene are associated with clinical outcomes in obese resistant hypertensive (RH) subjects. One hundred and twenty RH were enrolled in this cross-sectional study and divided into obese ( n = 63) and non-obese ( n = 57) according to body mass index. Genotype...

Abstract Smoking is the most complex and least understood cardiovascular risk factor. Nicotine effects on the vascular endothelium are related to the functional expression of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors on the endothelial surface. The α-7 nAChR unit is involved in the proliferative effects of nicotine including neovascularization, vascular remodeling, cell migration, proliferation, and differentiation; contributing to atherosclerosis and carcinogenesis. Nicotine promotes functional (endoth...
