Treatment of Plaque Infections and Periodontitis using Stem Cells- A New Prospect
Poster Jan 30, 2009
Dental precursor cells are attractive for novel approaches to treat diseases like periodontitis, dental caries or to improve dental pulp healing and the regeneration of craniofacial bone and teeth. These cells are easily accessible and, in contrast to bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, are more closely related to dental tissues. This paper gives a short overview of stem cells of dental origin.
When there is a need to quickly analyze samples using a number of different PCR assays, it is likely that optimal conditions for each assay will not be the same. First, different assays often will require different annealing temperatures for their primers. In addition, amplicons may be designed to be of different lengths and therefore require varying durations of the extension step.READ MORE
