AB  - ObjectivesTo evaluate local effect of gaseous ozone on bacteria in deep carious lesions after incomplete caries removal, using chlorhexidine as control, and to investigate its effect on pulp vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), and superoxide dismutase (SOD).Materials and methodsAntibacterial effect was evaluated in 48 teeth with diagnosed deep carious lesion. After incomplete caries removal, teeth were randomly allocated into two groups regarding the cavity disinfectant used: ozone (open system) or 2% chlorhexidine. Dentin samples were analyzed for the presence of total bacteria and Lactobacillus spp. by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. For evaluation of ozone effect on dental pulp, 38 intact permanent teeth indicated for pulp removal/tooth extraction were included. After cavity preparation, teeth were randomly allocated into two groups: ozone group and control group. VEGF/nNOS level and SOD activity in dental pulp were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and spectrophotometric method, respectively.ResultsOzone application decreased number of total bacteria (p=0.001) and Lactobacillus spp. (p lt 0.001), similarly to chlorhexidine. The VEGF (p lt 0.001) and nNOS (p=0.012) levels in dental pulp after ozone application were higher, while SOD activity was lower (p=0.001) comparing to those in control pulp.ConclusionsAntibacterial effect of ozone on residual bacteria after incomplete caries removal was similar to that of 2% chlorhexidine. Effect of ozone on pulp VEGF, nNOS, and SOD indicated its biocompatibility.Clinical relevanceOzone appears as effective and biocompatible cavity disinfectant in treatment of deep carious lesions by incomplete caries removal technique.

AB  - Background: Methotrexate (MTX), a folate analogue, is the most commonly used disease-modifying drug in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, high interindividual differences in drug response are present among RA patients.Research design and methods: In a group of 234 RA patients treated with MTX, we investigated whether rs1650697 polymorphism in DHFR gene may have an impact on MTX efficacy and/or adverse drug effects (ADEs). Relative DAS28 values (rDAS28) were used for the estimation of MTX therapy and all ADEs were recorded. Patients were genotyped for selected polymorphism by real-time PCR method. Results: According to the European League Against Rheumatism criteria after 6 months of MTX therapy, 196 patients (83.8%) were classified as responders (25 (10.7%) were good and 171 (73.1%) were moderate) and 38 patients (16.2%) as nonresponders. ADEs were observed in 55 patients (23.5%). Conclusions: Our results showed that the presence of T allele might be protective against MTX hepatotoxicity measured by transaminase levels (p = 0.05). Furthermore, among patients who also received low-dose corticosteroids, we have found a lower rDAS value in patients with CC genotype (p = 0.039).

AB  - Using comprehensive analysis of heart rate (HRV) and blood pressure (BPV) short-term variability we estimated the time course of changes of autonomic nervous system remodeling in two stages of doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy (DCM). We also investigated the level of gene expression of cardiac beta-1 (beta-1AR) and beta-2 (beta-2AR) adrenoceptors. Experiments were performed in adult male Wistar rats equipped with indwelling catheters for BP recording and blood withdrawal. A 15 mg/kg total cumulative dose of doxorubicin was injected i.p. to rats to induce DCM or saline for control (n = 18). Rats were assessed for general toxicity, cardiovascular hemodynamic and echocardiography before treatment (n = 6), 35 days (DOX35; n = 6) and 70 days (DOX70; n = 6) post-treatment. HRV was evaluated by spectral analysis, Poincare plots, sample and approximate entropy. Expression of beta-1AR and beta-2AR mRNA was evaluated by RT-qPCR. Doxorubicin-treated rats exhibited poor general condition and lower survival than saline-treated rats. In DOX35 rats, there were no echocardiography signs of decompensation, no increase in serum cardiac troponins, but there was an increase of HRV and decrease of HR complexity. In these rats typical microscopic signs of cardiotoxicity were seen along with over-expression of beta-1AR mRNA. 70 days post-treatment echocardiography revealed signs of decompensation and serum cardiac troponin T was increased. At this stage BPV decreased. In conclusion, HRV increase matches transient over expression of cardiac beta-1AR mRNA in compensate stage of DCM while decompensate stage of DCM is characterized by a decrease of BPV and no changes in beta-1AR and beta-2AR gene expression.

AB  - Tooth agenesis is common dentofacial malformation in humans. Its etiology is still not clear. Hypodontia has been regarded as a multifactorial condition influenced by gene function, environmental interaction and developmental timing. More than 300 genes have been related with patterning, morphogenesis and cell differentiation in teeth. According to data WNT10A gene is considered to have an important role in odontogonesis. The aim of this study was to show mutation status in WNT10A gene in a family with two members with diagnosis of hypodontia/oligodontia. In the reported family (father, mother, son, daughter) children were diagnosed with congenital tooth agenesis (son-2 teeth, daughter-11 teeth), while parents negated congenital absence of teeth. We identified a heterozygous missense mutation, c.682T>A (p.Phe228Ile) within the exon 3 of WNT10A in mother and father and the same homozygous mutation was detected in the same region of WNT10A gene in daughter and son. Observed differences in our study, from no symptoms to mild/severe hypodontia, could be the consequence of genetic influence of c.682T>A(p.Phe228Ile) mutation, but also the contribution of many environmental factors during odontogenesis.
AB  - Urođeni nedostatak zuba predstavlja jednu od najčešćih dentofacijalnih anomalija kod čoveka. Etiologija hipodoncije i dalje nije potpuno definisana i smatra se da su za njenu etiologiju odgovorni brojni genetski i sredinski faktori koji deluju u različitim fazama razvoja zuba. Preko 300 gena povezuje se sa morfogenezom i ćelijskom diferencijacijom u toku razvoja zuba, a prema podacima WNT10A gen je jedan od gena koji ima veoma bitnu ulogu u kontroli odontogeneze. Cilj ovog rada bio je da se prikaže mutacioni status WNT10A gena u porodici sa dijagnostikovanom hipodoncijom/oligodoncijom. U prikazanoj porodici (otac, majka, sin i ćerka) kod dva člana dijagnostikovan je urođeni nedostatak zuba (sin - dva zuba, ćerka - 11 zuba), dok kod roditelja ovaj nedostatak nije zabeležen. Kod svih članova porodice, u okviru egzona 3 WNT10A gena detektovana je mutacija c.682T>A (p.Phe228Ile). Kod majke i oca ova 'missense' mutacija je bila u heterozigotnom obliku, dok je kod sina i ćerke utvrđeno prisustvo iste mutacije u homozigotnom obliku. Zabeležene razlike u analiziranoj porodici, od odsustva simptoma do blage hipodoncije i izrazite oligodoncije, mogu biti posledica prisustva c.682T>A (p.Phe228Ile) mutacije, ali takođe i uticaja faktora sredine u toku odontogeneze.

In the reported family (father, mother, son, daughter) children were diagnosed with congenital tooth agenesis (son-2 teeth, daughter-11 teeth), while parents negated congenital absence of teeth. We identified a heterozygous missense mutation, c.682T>A (p.Phe228Ile) within the exon 3 of WNT10A in mother and father and the same homozygous mutation was detected in the same region of WNT10A gene in daughter and son. Observed differences in our study, from no symptoms to mild/severe hypodontia, could be the consequence of genetic influence of c.682T>A(p.Phe228Ile) mutation, but also the contribution of many environmental factors during odontogenesis., Urođeni nedostatak zuba predstavlja jednu od najčešćih dentofacijalnih anomalija kod čoveka. Etiologija hipodoncije i dalje nije potpuno definisana i smatra se da su za njenu etiologiju odgovorni brojni genetski i sredinski faktori koji deluju u različitim fazama razvoja zuba. Preko 300 gena povezuje se sa morfogenezom i ćelijskom diferencijacijom u toku razvoja zuba, a prema podacima WNT10A gen je jedan od gena koji ima veoma bitnu ulogu u kontroli odontogeneze. Cilj ovog rada bio je da se prikaže mutacioni status WNT10A gena u porodici sa dijagnostikovanom hipodoncijom/oligodoncijom. U prikazanoj porodici (otac, majka, sin i ćerka) kod dva člana dijagnostikovan je urođeni nedostatak zuba (sin - dva zuba, ćerka - 11 zuba), dok kod roditelja ovaj nedostatak nije zabeležen. Kod svih članova porodice, u okviru egzona 3 WNT10A gena detektovana je mutacija c.682T>A (p.Phe228Ile). Kod majke i oca ova 'missense' mutacija je bila u heterozigotnom obliku, dok je kod sina i ćerke utvrđeno prisustvo iste mutacije u homozigotnom obliku. Zabeležene razlike u analiziranoj porodici, od odsustva simptoma do blage hipodoncije i izrazite oligodoncije, mogu biti posledica prisustva c.682T>A (p.Phe228Ile) mutacije, ali takođe i uticaja faktora sredine u toku odontogeneze.",

AB  - Introduction the main objective of endodontic treatment is to eliminate infection from root canal and prevent re-infection by three-dimensional hermetic obturation of the canal system. Endodontic failure can occur due to inability of complete control and elimination of infection from the root canal. The aim of this study is to investigate, by PCR technique, microbiological status of previously endodontically unsuccessfully treated teeth immediately after the removal of obturation material. Material and Methods the analysis included 30 teeth indicated for endodontic retreatment. After removing previous root canal filling material, the bacteriological sample was taken by sterile instrument (# 15) and paper points. Standard PCR technique was used to analyze the incidence of E.faecalis, P.micros, P.intermedia, P. endodontalis and a.actinomycetemcomitans. Results Positive bacteriological findings were registered in 80% of cases, while bacteria were not identified in 20% of all samples (all taken from the root canals without significant changes in periapical tissue). From 24 canals with identified bacteria, 17 had affected apical periodontium. The most dominant microbe in root canals with positive bacteriological finding was E.faecalis (83.3% of the canals) and P.intermedia (75%). In case of teeth with chronic periapical changes, the most common was E. faecalis (94%) and P.intermedia (82.3%). Conclusion the presence of periapical lesions significantly affects microbiological status of endodontically treated teeth. The presence of bacteria was confirmed in most teeth with periapical lesions, while the most frequently identified bacteria were E. faecalis, P.intermedia and P.micros.
AB  - Uvod Osnovni zadatak endodontskog tretmana je da eliminiše infekciju iz kanala korena I spreči reinfekciju trodimenzionalnom hermetičkom opturacijom kanalskog sistema. Usled nemogućnosti potpune kontrole I eliminacije infekcije iz kanala korena može doći do pojave endodontskog neuspeha. Cilj ovog rada je bio da se neposredno posle uklanjanja materijala za opturaciju kod zuba sa neuspelim endodontskim lečenjem PCR tehnikom proveri mikrobiološki status endodontski lečenih zuba. Metode Mikrobiološka studija je obuhvatila 30 zuba (osam višekorenih I 22 jednokorena) indikovanih za ponovljeni endodontski tretman. Posle dezinfekcije radnog polja I dezopturacije koja je urađena isključivo mehaničkim putem, uzorak je uzet sterilnim kanalnim instrumentom tipa pulpekstirpatora (#15) ili Hoedstrem-turpije (#15) I uz pomoć papirnih poena kojima je sušen kanal. Ependorfice su čuvane na temperaturi od -20˚C do mikrobiološke analize. Putem klasičnog PCR analizirana je zastupljenost bakterija: Enterococcus faecalis, Peptostreptococcus micros, Prevotela intermedia, Porphyromonas endodontalis I Actinobacilus actinomicetemcomitans. Rezultati Pozitivan bakteriološki nalaz registrovan je u 80% slučajeva, dok bakterije nisu identifikovane u 20% uzoraka. Svi negativni uzorci su uzeti iz kanala korena zuba bez značajnih promena u apeksnom periodoncijumu, dok je 17 od 24 kanala sa identifikovanim bakterijama pripadalo zubima sa oštećenim apeksnim parodoncijumom. Najprisutniji mikroorganizam u kanalima sa pozitivnim bakteriološkim nalazom bio je E. faecalis, koji je identifikovan u 83,3% kanala, zatim P. inermedia sa 75% I P. micros sa zastupljenošću od 58,3%. Kod zuba sa hroničnim periapikalnim promenama najzastupljeniji je bio E. faecalis, koji je identifikovan u 94% kanala, zatim P. intermedia, koja je bila prisutna u 82,3% uzoraka. Mikroorganizmi E. faecalis I P. intermedia su registrovani kod svih pacijenata sa nekim od simptoma. Zaključak Prisustvo periapikalnih lezija značajno utiče na mikrobiološki status kanala korena endodontski lečenih zuba. Prisustvo bakterija u kanalima korena potvrđeno je u većini endodontski neuspešno lečenih zuba, a najčećše identifikovane bakterije bile su E. faecalis, zatim P. intermedia, P. micros I P. endodontalis.

AB  - Ageing affects various physiological and metabolic processes in a body and a progressive accumulation of oxidative damage stands out as often used explanation. One of the most powerful scavenger of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in all organs is melatonin. A majority of melatonin supplied to the body via blood originates from the pineal gland. However, we have been interested in a locally produced melatonin. We have used 2.5- and 36-months-old Wistar rats. Tissues were collected and gene expression of AA-NAT and ASMT, the two key enzymes in a synthesis of melatonin, was determined in brain, liver, kidney, heart, skin, and intestine. Since melatonin can influence antioxidant enzymes, the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT), and the level of GSH were measured in liver. In addition, Copper (Cu), Zinc (Zn), and Manganese (Mn) were also determined in liver since these microelements might affect the activity of antioxidant enzymes. The expression of AA-NAT and ASMT was increased in liver and skin of old animals. A positive correlation in AA-NAT and ASMT expression was observed in liver, intestine and kidney. Moreover, the activity of CAT enzyme in liver was increased while SOD activity was decreased. SOD and CAT were probably affected by the observed decreased amount of Cu, Zn, and Mn in liver of old animals. In our model, extrapineal melatonin pathway in ageing consisted of complex interplay of locally produced melatonin, activities of SOD and CAT, and adequate presence of Cu, Zn and Mn microelements in order to defend organs against oxidative damage.

AB  - Background/Aim: The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate the influence of irradiation cycles and resting periods, on thermal effects on the external root surface during root canal irradiation of two diode laser systems (940 nm and 975 nm), at output powers of 1 W and 2 W in continuous mode. In previous studies the rising of temperature above 7°C has been reported as biologically accepted to avoid periodontal damage on the external root surface. Material and Methods: Twenty human inferior incisors were randomly distributed into four groups, the 940 nm, and the 975 nm diode laser irradiation, both with an output power of 1 W and 2 W, in continuous mode. The thermographic camera was used to detect temperature variations on the external root surface. Digital radiography of the samples was made. Results: After three cycles of irradiation, at apical third of the root, mean temperature variation by 940 nm diode laser irradiation was 2.88°C for output power of 1 W, and 6.52°C for output power of 2 W. The 975 nm laser caused a higher temperature increase in the apical region, with temperature variation of 13.56°C by an output power of 1 W, and 30.60°C at 2 W, with a statistical significance of p ≤ 0.0001 between two laser systems compared for the same power. The resting periods of 20 s between cycles were enough to lower temperature under 7°C in the case of 1 W and 2 W for 940 nm diode laser, while for 975 nm laser, after three irradiation cycles overheating occurred at both output power rates. Conclusion: Three cycles irradiation of 940 nm diode laser, with resting periods of 20 seconds, allowed safe usage of 1 W and 2 W in CW for endodontic treatment. For 975 nm at a power rate of 1 W, the last resting period drop the temperature near the safe limit and it came under 7°C in a period less than a minute, while at the power of 2 W the resting periods were not long enough for the safe temperature decrease.

AB  - The tumour subtype, TNM classification, and histopathological data are sometimes not sufficient for understanding and assessing the behaviour of oral cancers. In an attempt to find additional markers of tumour biology and behaviour, this study sought to determine the incidence and consequently the relevance of c-erb-B2, c-Myc, and H-ras gene alterations in tumour-free margins of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Fifty samples of OSCC were analyzed for c-erb-B2 and c-Myc amplification by real-time polymerase chain reaction and for H-ras point mutations by sequencing. A relatively high incidence of genetic lesions was detected: 22% of cases had c-erb-B2 and 30% had c-Myc amplification, whilst only 12% harboured H-ras mutations. Kaplan-Meier analysis and the log-rank test showed statistically significant differences in 5-year survival rates and relapse between patients with tumour margins positive for c-erb-B2 amplification and those with margins that were negative (P = 0.002). H-ras and c-Myc alterations could not be associated with tumour behaviour. Molecular analysis of margins, targeting cancer genes, could identify additional, independent predictors of risk and outcome in OSCC.

AB  - The aim of this study was to assess TERT-CLPTM1L single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs402710 C/T in the CLPTM1L gene; rs2736100 A/C and rs2736098 G/A in the TERT gene) as risk factors for development of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), and to investigate the relationship between the analyzed polymorphisms, relative telomere length (RTL), telomerase expression and clinicopathologic characteristics of OSCC in a Serbian population. Paraffin-embedded tumor samples and buccal swabs from cancer-free controls were genotyped using PCR-RFLP, while tumor RTL values and telomerase expression were estimated by real-time PCR and immunohistochemistry, respectively. CLPTM1L rs402710 and TERT rs2736100 polymorphisms were associated with a significantly increased risk of OSCC, and TERT rs2736098 with a significantly decreased risk. No significant association was found between TERT-CLPTM1L polymorphisms, tumor RTL values, telomerase expression, and clinicopathologic features, although a trend towards longer telomeres was evident in telomerase-positive samples and less advanced tumors. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that patients with longer telomeres in their tumors had significantly better overall survival than patients with shorter telomeres. Our research seems to provide strong evidence for an association between CLPTMIL rs402710C/T and TERT rs2736100A/C SNPs and the risk of OSSC, and suggests that higher tumor RTL values and positive hTERT expression may be applicable as early prognostic markers.

AB  - Introduction Periodontal diseases are associated with the presence of elevated levels of bacteria within the gingival crevice. Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate a total amount of bacteria in subgingival plaque samples in patients with a periodontal disease. Methods A quantitative evaluation of total bacteria amount using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was performed on 20 samples of patients with ulceronecrotic periodontitis and on 10 samples of healthy subjects. The estimation of total bacterial amount was based on gene copy number for 16S rRNA that was determined by comparing to Ct values / gene copy number of the standard curve. Results A statistically significant difference between average gene copy number of total bacteria in periodontal patients (2.55×107) and healthy control (2.37×106) was found (p=0.01). Also, a trend of higher numbers of the gene copy in deeper periodontal lesions (>7 mm) was confirmed by a positive value of coefficient of correlation (r=0.073). Conclusion The quantitative estimation of total bacteria based on gene copy number could be an important additional tool in diagnosing periodontitis.

AB  - This study aimed to compare the levels of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-), interleukin-1 beta (IL-1) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) between apical periodontitis lesions with different clinical and histological features. Based on clinical data and history of disease, 100 human apical periodontitis lesions were categorised as either asymptomatic or symptomatic lesions. According to histological examination, lesions were divided into periapical granulomas and radicular cysts. Pulp tissues of 25 impacted wisdom teeth were used as controls. Homogenised tissue samples were centrifuged and supernatants were used for the determination of cytokine levels by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Significantly higher levels of IL-1 and IL-6 were found in symptomatic lesions compared with asymptomatic lesions and control tissues (P lt 0.001, P lt 0.001, respectively). The concentration of IL-1 was significantly higher in radicular cysts compared with periapical granulomas (P=0.003). Symptomatic lesions, as judged by high local production of IL-1 and IL-6, represent an immunologically active stage of the disease.

AB  - Introduction Fibronectin (FN) can interact with immunoglobulin G (IgG) molecules affecting the process of physiological elimination and causing abnormal deposition of immune complexes. The aim of the study was to analyze interaction between FN fragments and IgG molecules with different glycosylation profiles in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of patients with periodontal disease and healthy controls. Material and Methods The study included 30 patients with moderate and advanced periodontitis and 22 healthy subjects. IgG and FN content in GCF were measured as well as the presence of FN and galactose expression on IgG molecules. Results IgG content in GCF was five times higher in patients with moderate (p lt 0.01) and eight time higher in patients with advanced periodontitis (p lt 0.001) compared to healthy subjects. Also, hypogalactosylated forms of IgG were found in higher concentration in GCF of patients with advanced periodontitis compared to moderate periodontitis and healthy subjects (p lt 0.05). FN fragments of molecular mass 48 - 53 kDa were the most commonly found fragments in all three groups. Furthermore, in patients with advanced periodontitis, fibronectin fragments were attached to IgG molecules. Conclusion IgG and FN fragments form complexes in GCF in patients with periodontal disease and healthy subjects.
AB  - Uvod Fibronektin može da interreaguje s molekulima imunoglobulina G (IgG) i utiče na normalan klirens ili poremećeno deponovanje imunskih kompleksa. Cilj ovog rada je bio da se ispita veza između fibronektina i IgG različitih glikoformi u gingivalnoj tečnosti osoba obolelih od parodontopatije i parodontalno zdravih ispitanika. Materijal i metode rada U studiju je uključeno 30 pacijenata s umerenom i uznapredovalom parodontopatijom i 22 parodontalno zdrave osobe. U gingivalnoj tečnosti određivan je sadržaj IgG i fibronektina dot blot i imunoblot tehnikama. IgG iz gingivalnih tečnosti su afinitetno izolovani i analizirani na prisustvo fibronektina i ekspresiju galaktoze. Rezultati Sadržaj IgG u gingivalnoj tečnosti osoba s umerenom parodontopatijom bio je oko pet puta veći u odnosu na sadržaj IgG kod zdravih osoba (p lt 0,01), dok je kod uznapredovalih oblika bio oko osam puta veći (p lt 0,001). Takođe, hipogalaktozilovane forme IgG su većoj meri postojale kod osoba sa uznapredovalom parodontopatijom u odnosu na zdrave i osobe s umerenom parodontopatijom (p lt 0,05). U sve tri analizirane grupe dominirali su fibronektinski fragmenti od 48 do 53 kDa. Uočeno je da su IgG izolovani iz gingivalne tečnosti vezani za fragmente fibronektina, pri čemu su IgG osoba sa uznapredovalom parodontopatijom, imali najveću količinu ovih vezanih fragmenata. Zaključak Dobijeni rezultati pokazuju da IgG gingivalne tečnosti zdravih i osoba s parodontopatijom formiraju komplekse sa fibronektinom.

Results IgG content in GCF was five times higher in patients with moderate (p lt 0.01) and eight time higher in patients with advanced periodontitis (p lt 0.001) compared to healthy subjects. Also, hypogalactosylated forms of IgG were found in higher concentration in GCF of patients with advanced periodontitis compared to moderate periodontitis and healthy subjects (p lt 0.05). FN fragments of molecular mass 48 - 53 kDa were the most commonly found fragments in all three groups. Furthermore, in patients with advanced periodontitis, fibronectin fragments were attached to IgG molecules. Conclusion IgG and FN fragments form complexes in GCF in patients with periodontal disease and healthy subjects., Uvod Fibronektin može da interreaguje s molekulima imunoglobulina G (IgG) i utiče na normalan klirens ili poremećeno deponovanje imunskih kompleksa. Cilj ovog rada je bio da se ispita veza između fibronektina i IgG različitih glikoformi u gingivalnoj tečnosti osoba obolelih od parodontopatije i parodontalno zdravih ispitanika. Materijal i metode rada U studiju je uključeno 30 pacijenata s umerenom i uznapredovalom parodontopatijom i 22 parodontalno zdrave osobe. U gingivalnoj tečnosti određivan je sadržaj IgG i fibronektina dot blot i imunoblot tehnikama. IgG iz gingivalnih tečnosti su afinitetno izolovani i analizirani na prisustvo fibronektina i ekspresiju galaktoze. Rezultati Sadržaj IgG u gingivalnoj tečnosti osoba s umerenom parodontopatijom bio je oko pet puta veći u odnosu na sadržaj IgG kod zdravih osoba (p lt 0,01), dok je kod uznapredovalih oblika bio oko osam puta veći (p lt 0,001). Takođe, hipogalaktozilovane forme IgG su većoj meri postojale kod osoba sa uznapredovalom parodontopatijom u odnosu na zdrave i osobe s umerenom parodontopatijom (p lt 0,05). U sve tri analizirane grupe dominirali su fibronektinski fragmenti od 48 do 53 kDa. Uočeno je da su IgG izolovani iz gingivalne tečnosti vezani za fragmente fibronektina, pri čemu su IgG osoba sa uznapredovalom parodontopatijom, imali najveću količinu ovih vezanih fragmenata. Zaključak Dobijeni rezultati pokazuju da IgG gingivalne tečnosti zdravih i osoba s parodontopatijom formiraju komplekse sa fibronektinom.",

AB  - Aims: In vitro expansion changes replication and differentiation capacity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), increasing challenges and risks, while limiting the sufficient number of MSCs required for cytotherapy. Here, we characterized and compared proliferation, differentiation, telomere length and pluripotency marker expression in MSCs of various origins. Main methods: Immunophenotyping, proliferation and differentiation assays were performed. Pluripotency marker (Nanog, Oct-4, SOX-2, SSEA-4) expression was determined by immunofluorescence. Quantitative PCR was performed for relative telomere length (RTL) analyses, while expression of relevant genes for pluripotency markers, differentiation state (Cbfa1, human placental alkaline phosphatase, peroxisome proliferator activated receptor, Sox9 and Collagen II a1), and telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) was determined by semiquantitative RT-PCR. Key findings: Peripheral blood MSCs (PB-MSCs) and umbilical cord MSCs (UC-MSCs) showed the highest, while periodontal ligament MSCs (PDL-MSCs) and adipose tissue MSCs (AT-MSCs) the lowest values of both the replication potential and RTL. Although MSCs from exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHEDs), PDL-MSCs and AT-MSCs showed higher mRNA expression of pluripotency markers, all MSCs expressed pluripotency marker proteins. SHEDs and PDL-MSCs showed prominent capacity for osteogenesis, PB-MSCs and UC-MSCs showed strengthened adipogenic differentiation potential, while AT-MSCs displayed similar differentiation into both lines. Significance: The MSCs populations derived from different sources, although displaying similar phenotype, exhibited high degree of variability regarding biological properties related to their self-renewal and differentiation capacity. These data indicate that for more accurate use in cell therapy, individualities of MSCs isolated from different tissues should be identified and taken into consideration when planning their use in clinical protocols.

AB  - Introduction Pathogenesis and some characteristics of periodontitis cannot be fully explained by bacterial etiology alone. Herpes viruses may bridge the gap between clinical characteristics and molecular understanding of periodontal destruction. Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of healthy and damaged periodontium in Serbian population and to explore potential correlation between the presence of this virus and the level of periodontal destruction. Methods Samples were collected from gingival sulcus/periodontal pockets by sterile paper points and the presence of viral DNA in gingival crevicular fluid was assessed by PCR. Results There was no statistically significant difference in HSV-1 in presence between periodontitis patients (PG=38.9%) and healthy controls (HC=32.3%), (Chi-square test, with Yates' correction p=0.7574). However, HSV-1 positive patients showed significantly higher values of parameters of periodontal destruction (PPD=7.11±2.52, CAL=5.46±2.34) than periodontitis patients without HSV-1 in gingival crevicular fluid (PPD=4.70±1.79, CAL=3.39±2.65) (p values respectively, p=0.002 and p=0.023, Independent Samples T-Test). HSV-1 occurred more often in deeper (PPD≥6 mm) (69.2%) than in shallow pockets (3 mm lt PPD lt 6 mm) (18.2%) (Chi-square test, with Yates' correction, p=0.008). Plaque index was lower in the HSV-1 positive group (0.84± 0.69 vs. 1.43±0.76, p=0.023, Independent Samples T-Test). Conclusion This study demonstrated that the presence of HSV-1 in the gingival crevicular fluid coincides with a higher degree of tissue destruction in patients with periodontitis.
AB  - Uvod Patogeneza i neke kliničke odlike parodontopatije ne mogu se do kraja objasniti bakterijskom etiologijom. Herpesvirusi bi mogli da premoste jaz koji postoji između kliničkih osobina i poznavanja patogenetskih mehanizama parodontopatije na molekularnom nivou. Cilj rada Cilj ove studije bio je određivanje prevalencije virusa herpes simplex tip 1 (HSV-1) u zdravom i obolelom parodoncijumu osoba u Srbiji, kao i utvrđivanje moguće korelacije između postojanja ovih virusa i stepena oštećenja parodoncijuma. Metode rada Uzorci su uzimani papirnim poenima iz gingivalnih sulkusa ili parodontalnih džepova, a virus je otkrivan reakcijom lančanog umnožavanja molekula DNK (engl. polymerase chain reaction - PCR). Rezultati Nije utvrđena statistički značajna razlika u prevalenciji HSV-1 između osoba s parodontopatijom (32,3%) i zdravim parodoncijumom (38,9%); χ2-test sa Jejtsovom (Yates) korekcijom: p=0,7574. U grupi ispitanika s parodontopatijom parametri koji označavaju stepen oštećenja (dubina parodontalnog džepa - DPDž; nivo pripojnog epitela - NPE) bili su značajno veći kod onih s otkrivenim virusom (DPDž: 7,11±2,52 mm; NPE: 5,46±2,34), nego kod ispitanika bez virusa u uzorcima gingivalne tečnosti (DPDž=4,70±1,79 mm; NPE=3,39±2,65); Studentov t-test za nevezane uzorke: p=0,002, odnosno p=0,023. U dubljim parodontalnim džepovima (DPDž≥6 mm) HSV-1 je otkriven statistički značajno češće (69,2%) nego u plićim džepovima (DPDž=3-6 mm) (18,2%); χ2-test sa Jejtsovom korekcijom: p=0,008. Prosečne vrednosti plak-indeksa bile su niže kod ispitanika sa HSV-1 (0,84±0,69) u poređenju sa ispitanicima kod kojih ovaj virus nije otkriven (1,43±0,76); Studentov t-test za nevezane uzorke: p=0,023. Zaključak Prikazana studija pokazala je da je postojanje HSV-1 povezano sa nivoom oštećenja tkiva kod osoba s parodontopatijom.

AB  - Introduction The placement of fixed orthodontic appliances may lead to increased plaque accumulation and changes in subgingival microflora. Objective The aim of this study was to examine the changes in frequency of subgingival microflora that occur after placement and removal of fixed orthodontic appliance using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Methods This study included 33 orthodontic patients, who were divided into two groups. Subgingival plaque samples were collected from the right upper incisor (U1) and right upper first molar (U6). In group A, the samples were taken three times: before placement appliance (T1), after one month (T2), and after 3 months (T3). In group B the samples were also taken three times: before appliance removal (T1), after one month (T2), and after three months (T3). PCR method was used to determine the presence of P. gingivalis, A. actinomycetemcomitans, T. forsythia, and P. intermedia. Results In group A the frequency of P. gingivalis showed statistically significant decrease at U1 (p=0.049) and U6 (p=0.008), from T1 to T2, and at U1 (p=0.048) from T1 to T3. In group B only the frequency of T. forsythia showed a statistically significant decrease, at U6 (T1 vs. T2, p=0.004; T1 vs. T3, p=0.0003). Regarding other analyzed bacteria, changes in the presence were noticed but no statistical significance was found. Conclusion Placement of fixed appliances may have an impact on subgingival microflora, but in the first months after the placement and removal of the appliance changes were not significant, probably due to good oral hygiene.
AB  - Uvod Postavka fiksnih ortodontskih aparata može dovesti do povećanog nagomilavanja plaka i promena u subgingivalnoj mikroflori. Cilj rada Cilj ovog rada bio je da se ispitaju promene subgingivalne mikroflore nakon postavke i uklanjanja fiksnih ortodontskih aparata primenom reakcije lančanog umnožavanja molekula DNK (engl. polymerase chain reaction - PCR). Metode rada Studija je obuhvatila 33 pacijenta koja su svrstana u dve grupe (A i B). Uzorci plaka su uzeti iz subgingivalnog prostora desnog gornjeg centralnog sekutića (U1) i desnog gornjeg prvog kutnjaka (U6). U grupi A uzorci su uzimani pre postavke fiksnog aparata (T1), mesec dana posle postavke (T2) i tri meseca od postavke (T3). U grupi B uzorci su uzimani pre uklanjanja aparata (T1), mesec dana posle uklanjanja (T2) i tri meseca nakon uklanjanja (T3). Primenom metode PCR analizirano je postojanje mikroorganizama: Porphyromonas gingivalis, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Tannerella forsythia i Prevotella intermedia. Rezultati U grupi A učestalost P. gingivalis pokazala je statistički značajno smanjenje na oba zuba (U1: p=0,049; U6: p=0,008) u vremenskom intervalu od T1 do T2. Uočeno je i statistički značajno smanjenje zastupljenosti ove bakterije na zubu U1 u intervalu od T1 do T3 (p=0,048). U grupi B samo se učestalost T. forsythia statistički značajno smanjila na zubu U6 u intervalu od T1 do T2 (p=0,004) i od T1 do T3 (p=0,0003). Učestalosti ostalih bakterija u obe grupe ispitanika nisu pokazale statistički značajne promene. Zaključak Postavka fiksnih aparata može da utiče na sastav subgingivalne mikroflore, ali u prvim mesecima nakon postavke i uklanjanja aparata uglavnom nisu uočene statistički značajne promene, verovatno zbog dobre oralne higijene.

Results In group A the frequency of P. gingivalis showed statistically significant decrease at U1 (p=0.049) and U6 (p=0.008), from T1 to T2, and at U1 (p=0.048) from T1 to T3. In group B only the frequency of T. forsythia showed a statistically significant decrease, at U6 (T1 vs. T2, p=0.004; T1 vs. T3, p=0.0003). Regarding other analyzed bacteria, changes in the presence were noticed but no statistical significance was found. Conclusion Placement of fixed appliances may have an impact on subgingival microflora, but in the first months after the placement and removal of the appliance changes were not significant, probably due to good oral hygiene., Uvod Postavka fiksnih ortodontskih aparata može dovesti do povećanog nagomilavanja plaka i promena u subgingivalnoj mikroflori. Cilj rada Cilj ovog rada bio je da se ispitaju promene subgingivalne mikroflore nakon postavke i uklanjanja fiksnih ortodontskih aparata primenom reakcije lančanog umnožavanja molekula DNK (engl. polymerase chain reaction - PCR). Metode rada Studija je obuhvatila 33 pacijenta koja su svrstana u dve grupe (A i B). Uzorci plaka su uzeti iz subgingivalnog prostora desnog gornjeg centralnog sekutića (U1) i desnog gornjeg prvog kutnjaka (U6). U grupi A uzorci su uzimani pre postavke fiksnog aparata (T1), mesec dana posle postavke (T2) i tri meseca od postavke (T3). U grupi B uzorci su uzimani pre uklanjanja aparata (T1), mesec dana posle uklanjanja (T2) i tri meseca nakon uklanjanja (T3). Primenom metode PCR analizirano je postojanje mikroorganizama: Porphyromonas gingivalis, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Tannerella forsythia i Prevotella intermedia. Rezultati U grupi A učestalost P. gingivalis pokazala je statistički značajno smanjenje na oba zuba (U1: p=0,049; U6: p=0,008) u vremenskom intervalu od T1 do T2. Uočeno je i statistički značajno smanjenje zastupljenosti ove bakterije na zubu U1 u intervalu od T1 do T3 (p=0,048). U grupi B samo se učestalost T. forsythia statistički značajno smanjila na zubu U6 u intervalu od T1 do T2 (p=0,004) i od T1 do T3 (p=0,0003). Učestalosti ostalih bakterija u obe grupe ispitanika nisu pokazale statistički značajne promene. Zaključak Postavka fiksnih aparata može da utiče na sastav subgingivalne mikroflore, ali u prvim mesecima nakon postavke i uklanjanja aparata uglavnom nisu uočene statistički značajne promene, verovatno zbog dobre oralne higijene.",

AB  - Introduction Because apical periodontitis is recognizably an infectious disease, elimination or reduction of intracanal bacteria is of utmost importance for optimum treatment outcome. Objective The prevalence of Enterococcus faecalis and Porphyromonas gingivalis in infected root canals was studied Also, the effect of endodontic therapy by using intracanal medicaments, calcium hydroxide paste (CH) or gutta-percha points containing calcium hydroxide (CH-GP) or chlorhexidine (CHX-GP) on these microorganisms was assessed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay. Methods Fifty-one patients with chronic apical periodontitis were randomly allocated in one of the following groups according to the intracanal medicament used: CH, CH-GP and CHX-GP group. Bacterial samples were taken upon access (S1), after chemomechanical instrumentation (S2) and after 15-day medication (S3). PCR assay was used to detect the presence of selected bacteria. Results E. faecalis was detected in 49% (25/51) and P. gingivalis in 17.6% (9/51) of the samples. Samples which showed no bacterial presence at S1 were excluded from further analysis. Overall analysis of all 29 samples revealed significant differences between S1 and S2 (p lt 0.001), S2 and S3 (p lt 0.05), and S1 and S3 (p lt 0.001). When distinction was made between the intracanal medications, there was a significant difference in the number of PCR positive samples between S1 and S2, S1 and S3, but not between S2 and S3 samples. Conclusion E. faecalis is more prevalent than P. gingivalis in primary endodontic infection. Intracanal medication in conduction with instrumentation and irrigation efficiently eliminates E. faecalis and P. gingivalis from infected root canals.

Cilj rada Cilj ovog rada je bio da se ispita prevalencija bakterija Enterococcus faecalis i Porphyromonas gingivalis u inficiranim kanalima korena zuba i ustanovi efekat endodontskog lečenja primenom intrakanalnih medikamenata - kalcijum-hidroksidne suspenzije (CH), gutaperka-poena na bazi kalcijum-hidroksida (CH-GP) ili gutaperka-poena na bazi hlorheksidina (CHX-GP) - na ove mikroorganizme metodom lančane reakcije polimerizacije (PCR). Metode rada Istraživanjem je obuhvaćena 51 osoba koja je imala zub s hroničnim apeksnim parodontitisom. Ispitanici su metodom slučajnog uzorka svrstani u tri grupe u zavisnosti od vrste primenjenog intrakanalnog medikamenta (CH, CH-GP i CHX-GP). Bakterijski uzorci iz kanala korena sakupljani su pri inicijalnom ulasku u kanal korena (S1), posle hemomehaničke obrade (S2) i posle petnaestodnevnog lečenja (S3). PCR analiza je korišćena za određivanje prisustva ispitivanih bakterija. Rezultati E. faecalis je izolovan iz 25 (49%) uzoraka, a P. gingivalis iz devet (17,6%). Uzorci u kojima nisu nađene bakterije u S1 fazi isključeni su iz dalje analize. Analiza svih 29 uzoraka je ukazala na statistički značajnu razliku između S1 i S2 uzoraka (p lt 0,001), S2 i S3 (p lt 0,05) i S1 i S3 (p lt 0,001). Kada se uzme u obzir vrsta intrakanalnog medikamenta, statistički značajna razlika u broju PCR-pozitivnih uzoraka zabeležena je između S1 i S2, S1 i S3, ali ne i između S2 i S3. Zaključak U primarnoj endodontskoj infekciji E. faecalis se češće javlja od P. gingivalis. Intrakanalna medikacija zajedno s instrumentacijom i irigacijom efikasno uklanja E. faecalis i P. gingivalis iz inficiranih kanala korena.

AB  - Purpose Gamma-glutamyl hydrolase (GGH), cyclin D1 (CCND1) and thymidylate synthase (TS) genes encode enzymes that are involved in methotrexate (MTX) action. In a group of 184 RA patients treated with MTX, we have investigated whether selected polymorphisms in these genes modulate MTX efficacy and/or have impact on adverse drug effects (ADEs). Methods The efficacy of the MTX therapy has been estimated using the disease activity score in 28 joints (DAS28-ESR) based on EULAR criteria and relative DAS28 values (rDAS28). All adverse drug events were recorded. Patients were genotyped for selected polymorphisms of the GGH (-354 G>T and 452 C>T), CCND1 (870 A>G) and TYMS (variable number of tandem repeats, VNTR, and G to C substitution of triple repeat, 3R allele) gene. Association studies have been performed between obtained genotypes and the efficacy and toxicity of MTX. Results According to the EULAR response criteria, 146 RA patients (79.3 %) were classified as responders (good/moderate response) and 38 (20.7 %) as nonresponders (poor response). Higher frequency of the TYMS 3 G/3 G genotype has been found among non-responders as compared to individuals with remaining genotypes (p=0.02). ADEs were recorded in 53 patients. Among those patients eight experienced bone marrow toxicity, all of them carried GGH -354GG genotype (p=0.003). No other significant association were observed. Conclusion The 3 G/3 G genotype of the TYMS gene may indicate predisposition of poor response to MTX and GG genotype of GGH -354 T>G polymorphism may have high predictive value for myelosuppression in RA patients.

AB  - One of the primary unanswered questions regarding the dispersal of Romani populations concerns the geographical region and/or the Indian caste/tribe that gave rise to the proto-Romani group. To shed light on this matter, 161 Y-chromosomes from Roma, residing in two different provinces of Serbia, were analyzed. Our results indicate that the paternal gene pool of both groups is shaped by several strata, the most prominent of which, H1-M52, comprises almost half of each collection's patrilineages. The high frequency of M52 chromosomes in the two Roma populations examined may suggest that they descend from a single founder that has its origins in the Indian subcontinent. Moreover, when the Y-STR profiles of haplogroup H derived individuals in our Roma populations were compared to those typed in the South Indian emigrants from Malaysia and groups from Madras, Karnataka (Lingayat and Vokkaliga castes) and tribal Soligas, sharing of the two most common haplotypes was observed. These similarities suggest that South India may have been one of the contributors to the proto-Romanis. European genetic signatures (i.e., haplogroups E1b1b1a1b-V13, G2a-P15, I-M258, J2-M172 and R1-M173), on the other hand, were also detected in both groups, but at varying frequencies. The divergent European genetic signals in each collection are likely the result of differential gene flow and/or admixture with the European host populations but may also be attributed to dissimilar endogamous practices following the initial founder effect. Our data also support the notion that a number of haplogroups including G2a-P15, J2a3b-M67(xM92), I-M258 and E1b1b1-M35 were incorporated into the proto-Romani paternal lineages as migrants moved from northern India through Southwestern Asia, the Middle East and/or Anatolia into the Balkans.

AB  - Objectives Identifying genetic predictors of methotrexate (MTX) treatment response in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may have great importance for optimising drug doses required for clinical benefit without toxicity. In a group of 125 RA patients treated with MTX we investigated whether selected polymorphisms in genes relevant for MTX action (aminoimidazole-4-carboxiamide ribonucleotide transformylase, ATIC, and dihydrofolate reductase, DHFR) modulate disease activity and/or have impact on therapy side effects. Methods The efficacy of treatment was estimated both by the disease activity score in 28 joints (DAS28), based on EULAR criteria, and relative DAS28 (rDAS28) score. Adverse drug events (ADEs) were also recorded. RA patients were genotyped using the PCR-RFLP method, followed by an association study between ATIC -129T>G, DHFR -216T>C and DHFR -317A>G polymorphisms and the efficacy and toxicity of MTX. Results According to the EULAR response criteria, 96 RA patients (76.8%) were classified as responders (good/moderate response) and 29 (23.2%) as non-responders (poor response). rDAS28 values ranged from -0.01 to 0.80 (mean value 0.31 +/- 0.19). Among 125 patients enrolled in this study 39 experienced at least one side effect. The DHFR -317AA genotype was associated with the less favourable response (reduction in rDAS28 score, p=0.05). None of the analysed polymorphisms was associated with MTX toxicity. Conclusion RA patients with DHFR-317AA genotype had less favourable response to MTX Further studies in larger patient populations are necessary to confirm the relationship between the analysed polymorphisms and MTX treatment response.

AB  - Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are rare in children and only a few studies have analyzed their molecular mechanisms. The NPM1 gene encodes for nucleophosmin (NPM) which regulates hematopoiesis. Mutations in exon 12 of the NPM1 cause the nucleophosmin cytoplasmic dislocation and disrupt its functions. We have analyzed mutations of the NPM1 gene in archival bone marrow samples from 17 children with MDS and detected, in one patient, transition C to T in codon 293. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first analysis of NPM1 mutations in childhood MDS and the very first missense mutation of the NPM1 gene reported so far.

AB  - Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of survivin, an inhibitor of apoptosis, in odontogenic keratocysts and to compare it to the findings in non-neoplastic jaw cysts - periapical cysts, as well as to establish a possible relationship between survivin expression and human cytomegalovirus presence within these cysts. Materials and methods: Samples of 10 odontogenic keratocysts (five positive and five negative for the presence of cytomegalovirus, as determined by polymerase chain reaction) and 10 periapical cysts (five positive and five negative for the cytomegalovirus presence) were analysed. The expression of survivin was assessed by immunohistochemical methods, using monoclonal antibody that selectively recognizes the cytoplasmic form of survivin. Results: All 10 odontogenic keratocysts showed immunostaining for survivin, while all 10 periapical cysts were negative for its presence. There was no correlation between cytomegalovirus presence and expression of survivin within odontogenic keratocysts. Conclusion: Survivin may contribute to the aggressive behavior of odontogenic keratocysts, and thus support the emerging opinion of their neoplastic nature.

Human papilloma virus (HPV) 16 detection is also included in the study. 60 samples of OSCC were analysed for erbB2 and c-myc amplification by dPCR, H-ras and p53 point mutations by PCR/SSCP. HPV was detected via amplification of its El and E6 genes. c-erbB2 was altered in 45%, c-myc in 35%, H-ras in 22% and p53 in 60% of samples. HPV was detected in 10% of cases. The frequency of p53 gene mutations showed a statistically significant association with tumour stage. Patients with c-erbB2 and H-ras alterations had lower survival than patients without these alterations. The number of detected genetic changes was remarkable but statistical association with tumour natural history was poor, indicating high clonal heterogeneity and multiple pathways of carcinogenesis.

AB  - Introduction. Short tandem repeats and more specifically microsatellites represent a powerful tool in forensic medicine. In the past years, they have been extensively used in human identification and paternity testing. Objective The aim of the present study was to analyze two microsatellite markers in the Serbian population, i.e. to determine the number of alleles and the relevant forensic parameters. Methods. DNA was isolated from teeth samples using standard proteinase K digestion and phenol/chloroform alcohol extraction. PCR products were analyzed on polyacrilamide gels and visualized by AgNO3 staining. Forensic parameters were calculated using the Cervus software. Results. The loci D18S70 and D20S116 were analyzed on a sample of 70 unrelated, healthy adult individuals from Serbia. The number of alleles was determined and Hardy Weinberg equilibrium was confirmed for both loci. D18S70 and D20S116 demonstrated 6 and 8 alleles, respectively. The power of discrimination (PD) and the power of exclusion (PE) for the tested STR loci, D18S70 and D20S116 were 0.92 (PD), 0.41 (PE) and 0.95 (PD), 0.480 (PE), respectively. Conclusion. According to the presented data, D18S70 and D20S116 are most informative markers. Based on allelic frequencies and statistical parameters for forensic testing, it may be suggested that these two microsatellites represent useful markers for individual identification and parentage analysis in the Serbian population.

abstract = "Introduction. Short tandem repeats and more specifically microsatellites represent a powerful tool in forensic medicine. In the past years, they have been extensively used in human identification and paternity testing. Objective The aim of the present study was to analyze two microsatellite markers in the Serbian population, i.e. to determine the number of alleles and the relevant forensic parameters. Methods. DNA was isolated from teeth samples using standard proteinase K digestion and phenol/chloroform alcohol extraction. PCR products were analyzed on polyacrilamide gels and visualized by AgNO3 staining. Forensic parameters were calculated using the Cervus software. Results. The loci D18S70 and D20S116 were analyzed on a sample of 70 unrelated, healthy adult individuals from Serbia. The number of alleles was determined and Hardy Weinberg equilibrium was confirmed for both loci. D18S70 and D20S116 demonstrated 6 and 8 alleles, respectively. The power of discrimination (PD) and the power of exclusion (PE) for the tested STR loci, D18S70 and D20S116 were 0.92 (PD), 0.41 (PE) and 0.95 (PD), 0.480 (PE), respectively. Conclusion. According to the presented data, D18S70 and D20S116 are most informative markers. Based on allelic frequencies and statistical parameters for forensic testing, it may be suggested that these two microsatellites represent useful markers for individual identification and parentage analysis in the Serbian population., Uvod.
