AB  - Introduction
This study aimed to perform a more precise estimation of the association between tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) – 308 G/A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and the risk of development of AP and its phenotypes based on all available published studies.
Methods
The study was carried out according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines and is registered in PROSPERO (CRD42020176190). The literature search was conducted via: Clarivate Analytics’ Scopus, PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and China National Knowledge Infrastructure databases, from inception to December 2020 with no language restrictions. Two reviewers were involved independently in study selection, data extraction and appraising the studies that were included. The quality of included studies was evaluated using the Strengthening the Reporting of Genetic Association (STREGA) and the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) system. Frequencies of genotypes and alleles of TNF-alpha (G>A 308, rs1800629) gene, with 95% Odds ratio was used.
Results
Four studies met the inclusion criteria with moderate risk of bias. This study revealed no significant association between TNF-α – 308 G/A SNP and AP, and the risk of AP development. Moreover, there was no significant association between genotype or allele frequency distribution and clinical manifestations (acute versus chronic) of AP. The certainty of evidence per GRADE was very low.
Conclusions
Due to very low certainty of evidence, whether there is an association between TNF-α – 308 G/A SNP and AP, warrants further well-designed multi-centric studies to adjudicate a better understanding of the role of genetic factors in the etiopathogenesis of AP.

AB  - Objectives
The aim of this systematic review was to critically analyze available data on gene polymorphisms in odontogenic keratocysts (OKC) and ameloblastomas, including their possible relationship with clinical and histological features of these lesions.

Materials and Methods
A comprehensive search of Web of Science Scopus, PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and EMBASE was conducted using relevant key terms and supplemented by a gray literature search. Quality assessment of included studies was performed using criteria from the Strengthening the Reporting of Genetic Association (STREGA) statement.

Results
Ten studies were included in the final review. Survivin ‐31G/C, interleukin IL‐1α ‐889 C/T, p53 codon 72 G/C, tumor necrosis factor TNF‐α (−308G>A) and its receptor TNF‐R1 (36A>G), glioma‐associated oncogene homolog 1 rs2228224 and matrix metalloproteinase 2 rs243865 gene polymorphisms were reported to be associated with OKC. For ameloblastomas, p53 codon 72 G/C, X‐ray repair cross‐complementing protein 1—codons 194 and 399 and matrix metalloproteinase 9 rs3918242 gene polymorphisms were identified as risk factors. It was not possible to establish a relationship between specific polymorphisms and clinical and histological features of investigated lesions.

Conclusions
Several gene polymorphisms might be considered as a risk factor for the development of these lesions. Future studies should investigate whether these polymorphisms might be used to identify patients with increased risk of recurrence or aggressive disease.

AB  - Background and objective
Notch signalling cascade has recently been connected to alveolar bone resorption in periodontitis. Hence, the present cross‐sectional study aimed to analyze the expression of Notch signalling pathway (Notch 1, Notch 2, Jagged 1, Hes 1, Hey 1) and periodontitis‐related (tumor necrosis factor alpha‐ TNF‐α, interleukin 17‐IL‐17, receptor activator of nuclear factor‐kappa B ligand—RANKL, osteoprotegerin—OPG) molecules and correlate it with clinical parameters in aggressive (AP) and chronic (CP) periodontitis. Additionally, the aforementioned markers' expression was evaluated in periodontitis patients with different RANKL/OPG ratios.

Material and methods
Eighty patients were enrolled either in AP or CP group. Clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing (BOP), periodontal probing depth (PPD) and plaque index (PI) were recorded for each patient. Total RNA was extracted from gingival crevicular fluid samples. Relative gene expression of investigated markers was determined by reverse transcriptase‐real‐time polymerase chain reaction.

Results
Significantly higher values of PPD were observed in AP compared to CP (P = .010). Negative correlations between OPG and CAL, and OPG and PI, were found in AP (P = .045, P = .006, respectively), while Hey 1 and PI had a positive correlation (P = .049). In multivariate linear regression analysis, OPG and Notch 2 were predictors of CAL in AP group. TNF‐α and IL‐17 were higher in RANKL predominant than in OPG predominant cases (P = .007, P = .001, respectively). In RANKL predominant lesions Notch 1 and Jagged 1 were down‐regulated in AP compared to CP patients (P = .010, P = .025, respectively).

Conclusion
The present study demonstrated that changes in Notch 2 expression affected CAL in AP cases hence this molecule could be considered as a contributor to alveolar bone loss. In RANKL‐activated settings, the down‐regulation of Notch 1 might participate in more severe bone resorption in AP.

AB  - Aim To investigate the possible association between TNF alpha (-308 G/A) and IL-1 beta (-511 C/T) single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and GSTT and GSTM deletion polymorphisms and risk of apical periodontitis (AP) development, and determine the association of different genotypes with the presence of herpesviral infection in AP. Methodology The study included 120 periapical lesions and 200 control samples. Gene polymorphism analysis was performed using either polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or PCR/ restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). Relative gene expression of TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta was analysed using reverse transcriptase - real-time PCR. The presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) was assessed by nested PCR. Chi-square and Fisher's exact tests and logistic regression analyses were done for polymorphisms, whilst Mann-Whitney U-test was performed for the expression analysis. The expected frequency of variants was analysed by the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium test. Results TNF-alpha (-308 G/A) SNP increased AP susceptibility for heterozygous (odds ratio (OR) = 1.72, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.06-2.80, P = 0.027) and homozygous (OR = 8.55, 95% CI = 1.77-41.36, P  lt  0.001) carriers of the variant A allele. On the other hand, IL-1 beta (-511 C/T) polymorphism exerted a protective effect both in heterozygotes (OR = 0.540, 95% CI = 0.332-0.880, P = 0.013) and homozygotes (OR = 0.114, 95% CI = 0.026-0.501, P  lt  0.001). In addition, GSTM1 and GSTT1 null genotypes separately, as well as concomitantly, were associated with an increased risk for AP development (P  lt  0.001). The null GSTT1 genotype increased approximately twice the risk of Epstein-Barr infection (EBV) in AP (OR = 2.17, 95% CI = 1-4.71, P = 0.048), whilst TNF-alpha SNP decreased it, both in heterozygotes (OR = 0.20, 95% CI = 0.08-0.48, P  lt  0.001) and AA homozygotes (OR = 0.07, 95% CI = 0.01-0.37, P = 0.001). Conclusions GSTM and GSTT deletion polymorphisms, as well as TNF alpha (-308 G/A) SNP, are associated with increased risk, whereas IL-1 beta (-511 C/T) polymorphism decreases the risk of AP development. GSTT and TNF alpha polymorphisms also appear to modulate the risk of EBV infection in Serbian patients with AP.

AB  - Objectives: Aiming to show that periodontitis (PD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) are bidirectionally related and potentially linked by inflammatory cytokines, we searched for association between -308 G/A Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα), +252A/G Lymphotoxin-alpha (LTα), +36A/G Tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1) and +676 T/G tumor necrosis factor receptor 2 (TNFR2) single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and: risk of PD or PD + T2D; periodontitis parameters in PD and PD + T2D; serum levels of cytokines/their receptors. Relationship between periodontal inflammation and serum cytokine/receptor levels was also assessed.

Design: Subjects were stratified as: 57 healthy controls (HC); 58 PD; 65 PD + T2D. Sociodemographic, environmental, behavioral and periodontal clinical data were recorded. SNPs were genotyped using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism, while cytokines/receptors levels were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Impact of periodontal inflammation was measured using periodontal inflamed surface area (PISA).

Results: TNFα AA genotype showed protective effect in T2D + PD compared to PD, even adjusted for behavioral/environmental factors (OR 0.18; 95 %CI 0.037-0.886; p = 0.035). LTα AG heterozygotes had increased risk of PD (OR 3.27; 95 %CI 1.35-7.96; p = 0.016), while TNFR2 TG genotype had protective effect (OR = 0.44; 95 %CI 0.954-0.9794; p = 0.043). TNFR1 AA was predictor of periodontal pocket depth and clinical attachment loss in PD. Correlation between TNFR2 concentration and PISA was negative in PD, positive in PD + T2D.

Conclusions: None of the SNPs showed cross-susceptibility between PD and T2D. + 252A/G LTα and +676 T/G TNFR2 SNPs are associated with PD risk. Periodontal destruction in healthy individuals is influenced by TNFR1 genotype. Impact of periodontal on systemic inflammation is masked by T2D.

Relationship between periodontal inflammation and serum cytokine/receptor levels was also assessed.

Design: Subjects were stratified as: 57 healthy controls (HC); 58 PD; 65 PD + T2D. Sociodemographic, environmental, behavioral and periodontal clinical data were recorded. SNPs were genotyped using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism, while cytokines/receptors levels were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Impact of periodontal inflammation was measured using periodontal inflamed surface area (PISA).

Results: TNFα AA genotype showed protective effect in T2D + PD compared to PD, even adjusted for behavioral/environmental factors (OR 0.18; 95 %CI 0.037-0.886; p = 0.035). LTα AG heterozygotes had increased risk of PD (OR 3.27; 95 %CI 1.35-7.96; p = 0.016), while TNFR2 TG genotype had protective effect (OR = 0.44; 95 %CI 0.954-0.9794; p = 0.043).

AB  - Introduction/Objective. The objective of the study was to investigate whether there are differences in therapeutic effect between initial treatments of chronic periodontitis [scaling and root planning (SRP)] alone and SRP in conjunction with injectable platelet-rich fibrin (I-PRF) application, comparing clinical parameters after three months. Methods. Twenty-four patients with chronic periodontitis who had at least two sites with probing pocket depth (PPD) ≥ 5 mm on contralateral side participated in the study. Using a split-mouth design, the patients were treated with SRP + I-PRF (study group) or SRP only (control group). The clinical parameters, clinical attachment level (CAL), gingival margin level (GML), PPD, bleeding on probing, and plaque index, were recorded on both sides. Results. Compared to baseline, both treatment modalities demonstrated an improvement in investigated clinical parameters. The mean value of CAL was reduced from 1.97 ± 0.75 (0.25–3.31) to 1.07 ± 0.44 (0.12–1.78) in the study group, whereas it decreased from 1.81 ± 0.66 (0.42–2.96) to 1.48 ± 0.55 (0.22–2.30) in the control group. Similarly, the corresponding values for GML and PPD showed statistically significant difference between the groups (p = 0.040 and p = 0.006, respectively). Conclusion. Regardless the limited number of patients in the study, initial periodontal therapy in conjunction with injectable platelet-rich fibrin proved to display significant improvement in all clinical parameters compared to initial periodontal therapy alone.

AB  - Objectives: Establishment of association between: (a) Val158Met COMT (G1947A) polymorphism and preeclampsia; (b) cytokines gene expression and COMT genotypes. Methods: 50 preeclampsia and 50 healthy pregnant women were enrolled. COMT genotyping was done by PCR/RFLP. TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 mRNA levels were determined by Real-time PCR. Results: Variant (AA) homozygotes carried 3.7-fold increased preeclampsia odds, especially for severe (OR = 9.0, 95%CI (2.09-38.799)) and early forms (OR = 6.6, 95%CI (1.62-26.87)). AA homozygotes with PE had higher TNF-α levels compared to controls (P = 0.012). Conclusions: Val158Met COMT polymorphism increases preeclampsia risk. TNF-α expression and Val158Met COMT polymorphism have concomitant roles in PE pathogenesis.

AB  - Insufficient response to oxidative stress in placenta is proposed as a contributing factor for preeclampsia (PE) development. Glutathione S-transferases (GST) have significant role in detoxification processes. Conflicting results were published by several research groups regarding GST T1 and GST M1 deletion polymorphism as risk factors for PE. The aim of the present meta-analysis was to get a better understanding of the impact of these polymorphisms in preeclampsia development. To identify relevant case-control studies, the author team searched Clarivate Analytics Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, major subject journals, and gray literature. Pooled odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals for GST M1 and GST T1 deletion polymorphism and preeclampsia were derived from random effects models. This meta-analysis included 10 eligible studies. The pooled analyses showed no association between GST M1/GST T1 deletion polymorphisms and susceptibility to PE. Even though high heterogeneity was founded among results for GST M1 and double null genotypes, Egger's and Begg's tests (0.17 and 0.18, respectively) revealed no statistical evidence of publication bias among included studies. The present updated systematic review and meta-analysis found no association between GST M1 and GST T1 deletion polymorphism and PE risk.

AB  - Oral carcinoma is the sixth most common malignancy worldwide, with survival rates of approximately 50%. The major type of oral cancer, present in 90% of the cases, is oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The genetic background predisposing an individual to OSCC is complex and largely unknown. Studies have suggested that endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene polymorphisms modulate the cancer risk, prompting us to assess the impact of three functional eNOS gene polymorphisms on OSCC risk. The present study included 50 patients with OSCC and 110 controls. Polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis were used for genotyping of single-nucleotide polymorphisms -786 T/C (rs2070744) and 894 G/T (rs1799983) and variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) intron 4b/a polymorphism. Homozygous carriers of -786 T/C and intron 4b/a VNTR variant alleles paired with a significant increase of oral cancer risk [odds ratio (OR): 3.63, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.08-12.21; P = 0.045 and OR: 11.29, 95% CI: 2.71-47.11; P < 0.001, respectively]. When combined, CC and 4b4a genotypes together led to a 21-fold OSCC risk increase (OR: 21, 95% CI: 2.07-213.29; P = 0.006). Haplotype analysis showed that the C-G-4b haplotype conferred an 11-fold increase in OSCC risk. In conclusion, eNOS polymorphisms considerably influence levels of OSCC risk in the Serbian population.

 This study aimed to summarize data on apical periodontitis (AP) and nonsurgical root canal treatment (NSRCT) prevalence and risk factors related to age, gender, and quality of restorative and endodontic treatment in the general population from cross-sectional studies published between 2012 and 2020.
 
 Methods
 An electronic search was performed in the following databases: Web of Science, Scopus, and PubMed. The conducted literature search covered studies published between 2012 and 2020, without restrictions on language. The STROBE and NOS tools were used for quality assessment of the included studies.
 
 Results
 Sixteen articles were included in the review. In total, 200,041 teeth were examined. On average, 6.3% of teeth had AP, and 7.4% had NSRCT. Forty-one percent of RCT teeth had AP, and 3.5% of untreated teeth had AP. Female patients were less prone to AP in endodontically treated teeth only, compared with male patients (P < .001). Variable stratification of age subgroups among included studies prevented us from conducting a meta-analysis. An increase in AP frequency was found in teeth with inadequate restorative and endodontic treatment (P < .001 and P < .001, respectively). Because of high heterogeneity, these results should be taken with caution.
 
 Conclusions
 There is an increased AP prevalence in the adult general population compared with data from 2012 (6.3% versus 5.4%) in both endodontically treated (41.3% versus 35.9%) and untreated teeth (3.5% versus 2.1%). In addition, AP developed less frequently in female patients with endodontically treated teeth and in teeth with inadequate compared with adequate restorative and endodontic treatment.

AB  - Objectives: This study aimed to investigate whether Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) positive periapical lesions exhibited higher mRNA levels of Notch signalling molecules (Notch2 and Jagged1), bone resorption regulators (receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-? ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin (OPG)), and proinflammatory cytokines (tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-?), interleukin-1 beta (IL-1?) and IL-6) compared to EBV negative lesions. Additionally, the potential correlation between investigated molecules in periapical lesions was analyzed. Materials and methods: Sixty-four apical periodontitis lesions were obtained subsequent to standard apicoectomy procedure. The presence of EBV was determined using nested PCR. Based on the presence of EBV all periapical lesions were divided into two groups, 29 EBV positive and 35 EBV negative lesions. A reverse transcriptase real-time PCR was used to determine mRNA levels of Notch2, Jagged1, RANKL, OPG, TNF-?, IL-1? and IL-6. Results: Significantly higher mRNA levels of Notch2, Jagged1, RANKL and IL-1? were observed in EBV positive compared to EBV negative lesions. Significant positive correlation was present between Notch2 and Jagged1, Jagged1 and RANKL, and IL-? and TNF-? in EBV positive periapical lesions. Conclusions: Notch signalling pathway may be involved in alveolar bone resorption in apical periodontitis lesions infected by EBV.

AB  - Objectives Sutures are the most frequently used medical device for wound closure. They support tissue during the early phase of healing until it regains enough tensile strength. The aim of this study was to compare four different suture materials in terms of the influence on wound healing, microbial adherence, tissue reaction, and relevant clinical parameters which determine their clinical value. Materials and Methods Total number of 32 patients undergoing surgical extraction of four impacted third molars were involved in the study. Clinical parameters were estimated intraoperatively and during the control check-ups. Soft tissue healing around sutures were evaluated on the 3rd and 7th day postoperatively. Microbial colonization was assessed by means of qPCR. Also, histological analysis was done to assess inflammatory reaction. Results Significantly better soft tissue healing was found around monofilament and synthetic sutures compared to multifilament and natural ones respectively. Soft tissue healing was significantly better around all sutures on the 7th day than on the 3rd day postoperatively. Conclusions Non-resorbable polypropylene suture showed superior clinical characteristics among all sutures. Moreover, the best healing of soft tissue and the least inflammatory reaction was found around this thread. The poorest soft tissue healing was found around non-resorbable silk suture. This suture elicited strongest inflammatory reaction and showed the greatest microbial adherence affinity compared to alternative sutures.

AB  - Background The exact mechanisms of bone resorption in periodontitis have not been fully elucidated. The aims of this study were to analyze the expression of Notch signaling molecules, bone remodeling mediators, and pro-inflammatory cytokines in periodontitis patients and to determine their potential correlations. Methods The study included 130 individuals: 40 with aggressive periodontitis (AP group), 40 with chronic periodontitis (CP group), and 50 periodontally healthy controls. Total RNA was extracted from gingival crevicular fluid samples and relative gene expression of investigated molecules (Notch 1, Notch 2, Jagged 1, Hes 1, Hey 1, TNF-alpha, IL-17, RANKL, and OPG) was determined by reverse transcriptase - real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). Results In AP group, a significant increase of Notch 2, TNF-alpha, IL-17 and RANKL and a significant decrease of Notch 1 and Jagged 1 expression were observed compared to control group (P = 0.023, P = 0.005, P = 0.030, and P = 0.001 P = 0.031 and P = 0.029, respectively). Notch 2 and RANKL were also overexpressed in CP group compared to controls (P = 0.001 and P = 0.011). Significant correlations were observed in AP group between expression levels of the analyzed genes. Conclusion The present findings implicate Notch 2 overexpression in the ethiopathogenesis of bone resorption in aggressive and chronic periodontitis. The down-regulation of Notch 1 and Jagged 1 and loss of their osteoprotective function might cause a more excessive osteoclast formation and contribute to greater osteolysis in aggressive periodontitis.

Notch 2 and RANKL were also overexpressed in CP group compared to controls (P = 0.001 and P = 0.011). Significant correlations were observed in AP group between expression levels of the analyzed genes. Conclusion The present findings implicate Notch 2 overexpression in the ethiopathogenesis of bone resorption in aggressive and chronic periodontitis. The down-regulation of Notch 1 and Jagged 1 and loss of their osteoprotective function might cause a more excessive osteoclast formation and contribute to greater osteolysis in aggressive periodontitis.",

AB  - As data on the distribution of freshwater sponges (Porifera, Demospongiae, Spongillida) in Serbia are extremely scarce, we investigated the main Serbian rivers and lakes with respect to Porifera occurrence, for which 17 lotic and 11 lentic water bodies were selected. Sponges were found in 11 of 17 rivers (62 specimens in total) and in 3 of 11 lakes/reservoirs (seven specimens in total). Classical morphological spicule analysis was coupled with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gene sequencing for species identification. Among the 69 collected specimens, five sponge species of the family Spongillidae have been identified: Ephydana fluviatilis (Linnaeus, 1759), Spongilla lacustris (Linnaeus, 1759), Ephydatia muelleri (Lieberklihn, 1856), Trochospongilla horrida Weltner, 1893, and Eunapius fragilis (Leidy, 1851). The most frequently found sponge in Serbian rivers was E.fluviatilis (45 % of all specimens), while the least frequent was E. fragilis (6% of all specimens). The Tisa river has the highest sponge diversity (four species). In lentic water bodies, only E.fluviatilis (four specimens) and S. lacustris (three specimens) were found. In general, sponges were infrequent and their abundance was low in Serbian fresh waters. While sponges seem to tolerate significant variations of physical and chemical parameters, some optimal values can be established.

AB  - Apical periodontitis represents a chronic inflammatory process within periapical tissues, mostly caused by etiological agents of endodontic origin. Progressive bone resorption in the periapical region represents the hallmark of apical periodontitis and occurs as the consequence of interplay between polymicrobial infections and host response. The Notch signaling pathway is an evolutionary conserved cell-signaling system that plays an important role in a variety of cell functions including proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. In recent years its involvement in bone homeostasis has attracted a significant consideration. We hypothesized that Notch signaling pathway, which has a complex interplay with proinflammatory cytokines and bone resorption regulators, contributes to alveolar bone resorption via increased Notch receptors on immune cell surface and stimulates Notch receptor intracellular domain (NICD) translocation into the nucleus. The potential benefit of medications aimed to down-regulate these pathways in apical periodontitis treatment remains to be assessed.

AB  - Introduction: The exact mechanisms of periapical bone resorption have not been fully elucidated. This study aimed to analyze the expression of Notch signaling molecules (Notch2, Jagged1, and Hey1) and proinflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor alpha [TNF-alpha], interleukin [IL]-1 beta, and IL-6) in human apical periodontitis lesions with different receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL)/osteo-protegerin (OPG) ratios and determine their potential correlation. Methods: The study group consisted of 50 periapical lesions collected in conjunction with apicoectomy. The relative gene expression of the investigated molecules (Notch2, Jagged1, Hey1, RANKL, OPG, TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, and IL-6) in all tissue samples was analyzed using reverse transcriptase real-time polymerase chain reaction. The Student t test, Mann-Whitney U test and Spearman correlation were used for statistical analysis. Results: Based on the RANKUOPG ratio, periapical lesions were either RANKL predominant (RANKL > OPG, n = 33) or OPG predominant (RANKL  lt  OPG, n = 17). Symptomatic lesions occurred more frequently in RANKL-predominant compared with OPG-predominant lesions (24 vs 7, P=.029). Notch2,Jagged1, Hey1, and TNF-alpha were significantly overexpressed in lesions with predominant RANKL compared with lesions with predominant OPG (P =.001, P =.001, P =.027, and P =.016, respectively). Significant correlations were observed between the investigated genes in periapical lesions. Conclusions: Notch signaling appeared to be activated in periapical inflammation. An increase in Notch2, Jagged1, Hey1, and TNF-alpha expression in RANKL-predominant periapical lesions corroborates their joined involvement in extensive periapical bone resorption.

AB  - Aim To characterize stem cells originating from different dental tissues (apical papilla [SCAP], dental follicle [DFSC], and pulp [DPSC]) and test the capacity of Raman microspectroscopy to distinguish between the three dental stem cell types. Methods SCAR DFSC, and DPSC cultures were generated from three immature wisdom teeth originating from three patients. Cell stemness was confirmed by inducing neuro-, osteo-, chondro-, and adipo-differentiaton and by mesenchymal marker expression analysis by flow-cytometry and real-time polymerase chain reaction. Cellular components were then evaluated by Raman microspectroscopy. Results We found differences between SCAP, DFSC, and DPSC Raman spectra. The ratio between proteins and nucleic acids (748/770), a parameter for discriminating more differentiated from less differentiated cells, showed significant differences between the three cell types. All cells also displayed a fingerprint region in the 600-700 cm(-1) range, and characteristic lipid peaks at positions 1440 cm(-1) and 1650 cm(-1). Conclusion Although different dental stem cells exhibited similar Raman spectra, the method enabled us to make subtle distinction between them.

AB  - Problem Preeclampsia has a multifactorial origin with genetic, immunological, and environmental factors described as main contributors to its onset. This study aimed to investigate glutathione-S-transferase M1 (GSTM1) and glutathione-S-transferase T1 (GSTT1) gene polymorphisms, the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6), and the potential relationship between GST polymorphisms and cytokine expression levels in preeclampsia and uncomplicated pregnancy. Method of Study This prospective case-control study included 50 women with preeclampsia and 50 healthy pregnant women. DNA and RNA were extracted from women leukocytes. Deletion polymorphisms were analyzed by PCR, while cytokine mRNA expression was analyzed by real-time PCR. Results GSTM1 null genotype with present GSTT1 increased the risk for preeclampsia development. Deletion of GSTT1 without deletion of GSTM1 increased the risk for early preeclampsia. Relative mRNA expression of TNF-alpha was significantly higher in preeclampsia compared to healthy pregnant women (P = 0.006). Expression of IL-1 beta was significantly higher in severe and late preeclampsia compared to the control group (P = 0.005, P = 0.007, respectively). A significant positive correlation between TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta was observed (Spearman's rho = 0.312, P = 0.028) and between IL-1 beta and IL-6, in preeclampsia group (Spearman's rho = 0.296, P = 0.037). IL-1 beta was significantly increased in patients with GSTT1 null genotype (P = 0.015) while IL-6 was increased in patients with GSTM1 null genotype (P = 0.015). Conclusions GSTM1 null genotype represents a risk factor for preeclampsia development, while GSTT1 null genotype favors early preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is also associated with increased expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, predominantly TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta.

AB  - Trochospongilla horrida Weltner, 1893 (Spongillidae, Spongillida) has a relatively wide, though discontinuous, distribution in the Northern Hemisphere. The aim of this paper was to report the first finding of T. horrida in Serbia. During 2017, research was carried out on ten tributaries of the Sava and the Danube. T. horrida was identified at three localities in Tisa, Juzna Morava and Zapadna Morava rivers, out of 51 inspected sites. For the first time ribosomal 28S DNA was used for T. horrida identification.

AB  - ObjectivesThis study aimed to analyse Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) viral loads in symptomatic and asymptomatic apical periodontitis lesions, to determine levels of TNF-, IL-1 and IL-6 in these lesions and to investigate a possible correlation between herpesviral copy numbers and levels of proinflammatory cytokines. Materials and MethodsA total of 100 samples of apical periodontitis were subjected to HCMV and EBV copy numbers analysis by nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and TaqMan real-time PCR. The concentrations of TNF-, IL-1 and IL-6 were determined by ELISA method. SPSS software was used for statistical analysis. ResultsThere were no significant differences in the occurrence of EBV and HCMV between symptomatic and asymptomatic periapical lesions (p=.686, p=.879, respectively). Only 12 of 74 EBV (16.2%) and four of 54 HCMV (13.5%) nested PCR-positive samples showed increased viral copy numbers above the limit of 125 copies/ml. There was no significant correlation between the levels of analysed proinflammatory cytokines and herpesviral copy numbers in our sample. ConclusionThe observed low viral loads point to a relatively rare occurrence of active EBV and HCMV infection in our sample. Latent herpesviral infection does not enhance the production of investigated proinflammatory cytokines.

AB  - AimTo investigate whether apical periodontitis lesions infected by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) exhibit higher levels of oxidative stress biomarkers [8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and oxidized glutathione (GSSG)] and bone resorption regulators [receptor activator of nuclear factor (NF-B) ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin (OPG)] compared to EBV-negative periapical lesions and healthy pulp tissues. MethodologyThe experimental group consisted of 30 EBV-positive and 30 EBV-negative periapical lesions collected in conjunction with apicoectomy. The pulp tissues of 20 impacted third molars were used as healthy controls. The qualitative and quantitative analysis of EBV was performed by nested and real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), respectively. The levels of RANKL and OPG were analysed by reverse transcriptase real-time PCR. The levels of 8-OHdG and GSSG were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Mann-Whitney U-test and Spearman's correlation were used for statistical analysis. ResultsThe levels of RANKL, OPG, 8-OHdG and GSSG were significantly higher in apical periodontitis lesions compared to healthy pulp controls (P=0.001, P lt 0.001, P lt 0.001 and P lt 0.05, respectively). RANKL and OPG mRNA expression was significantly higher in EBV-positive compared to EBV-negative periapical lesions (P lt 0.05). There was no significant correlation between EBV copy numbers and levels of RANKL, OPG, 8OH-dG and GSSG in apical periodontitis. ConclusionLevels of bone resorption regulators and oxidative stress biomarkers were increased in apical periodontitis compared to healthy pulp tissues. EBV-positive periapical lesions exhibited higher levels of RANKL and OPG compared to EBV-negative periapical lesions. EBV may contribute to progression of apical periodontitis via enhanced production of bone resorption regulators.

AB  - BackgroundUnderstanding the pathogenesis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and identifying the cells responsible for propagation and recurrence are crucial for the development of new treatment strategies. The aim of this study was to characterize the cells isolated from BCC and its margin. MethodsPrimary cultures were established from 10 BCCs, their respective close resection margins (3mm) and 10 control tissues. Stem cell markers analysis was carried out by real-time PCR and/or flow cytometry. Spheroid formation and MTT assays were also performed. ResultsReal-time PCR showed a higher expression of embryonic (Oct4, Sox2 and Nanog) and mesenchymal (CD44 and CD73) stem cell markers in tumors compared to margins and controls (P lt 0.05). Bmi-1 and GPR49 were also upregulated in tumors in comparison with margins. Both tumor and margin cells, but not normal, had the capacity to form spheroids. During passages, the number of spheres increased, while the diameter decreased. Tumor cells showed higher chemo-resistance compared to margin and control cells. ConclusionsBasal cell carcinomas expressed stem cell markers, pointing to the existence of a cancer cell side population with stemness characteristics. Margin also appeared to harbour a small number of cancer-initiating cells.

AB  - Purpose: Recent evidence suggests that small subpopulations of stem-like cells are accountable for tumour initiation, progression and metastasis. Until now, studies were focused exclusively on the characterization of these cell populations within the tumour itself, while tumour margins were neglected, although it is known that the histological and molecular status of tumour margins may play a significant role in the course of the disease. Therefore, the aims of the study were to isolate cells from oral squamous cell carcinomas and their respective margins, to characterize these cells using specific markers, to assess their self-renewal potential and determine their chemoresistance. Methods: Cell cultures were obtained from 12 tissue specimens (6 tumours and 6 margins). Total RNA was extracted and gene expression analysis was done by real-time PCR (RTPCR). Flow cytometry, immunocytometry, sphere formation and MTT assays were also applied. Results: With minor differences, cells originating from both tumours and tumour margins showed the presence of stem cell markers CD133, Nanog, Sox2, CD44, and Oct4, had the capacity to form spheroids and showed chemoresistance. Conclusions: Subpopulations of margin cells appeared to have sternness properties which might raise the question of re-evaluation of optimal surgical management.

AB  - Stem cell-based therapies are considered a promising treatment modality for many medical conditions. Several types of stem cells with variable differentiation potentials have been isolated from dental tissues, among them stem cells from apical papilla (SCAP). In parallel, new classes of biocompatible nanomaterials have also been developed, including graphene and carbon nanotube-based materials. The aim of the study was to assess whether graphene dispersion (GD) and water-soluble single walled carbon nanotubes (ws-SWCNT), may enhance SCAPs capacity to undergo neural differentiation. SCAPs cultivated in neuroinductive medium supplemented with GD and ws-SWCNT, separately and in combination, were subjected to neural marker analysis by real-time polymerase chain reaction (neurofilament medium [NF-M], neurogenin-2 [ngn-2], III-tubulin, microtubule-associated protein 2) and immunocytochemistry (NeuN and III-tubulin). GD, ws-SWCNT, and their combination, had neuro-stimulatory effects on SCAPs, as judged by the production of neural markers. Compared to cells grown in nanomaterial free medium, cells with GD showed higher production of B3T, cells with ws-SWCNT had higher production of ngn-2 and NF-M, while the combination of nanomaterials gave similar levels of both B3T and NF-M as the neuroinductive medium aloal ne, but with the finest neuron-like morphology. In conclusion, GD and ws-SWCNT seem to enhance neurdifferentiation of SCAP.
