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.

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.

AB  - Introduction
 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  - Introduction
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  - Background: The existence of an association between cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and apical periodontitis (AP) remains unclear because results obtained from previous clinical studies and reviews are inconsistent or inconclusive.

Objective: To conduct an umbrella review to determine whether there is an association between CVDs and the prevalence of AP in adults.

Methods: The protocol of the review was registered in the PROSPERO database (CRD42020185753). The literature search was conducted using the following electronic databases: Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science Scopus, PubMed and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, from inception to May, 2020, with no language restrictions. Systematic reviews with or without meta-analysis that evaluated the association between CVDs and AP were included. Other types of studies, including narrative reviews, were excluded. Two reviewers independently performed a literature search, data extraction and quality assessment of included studies. Any disagreements or doubts were resolved by a third reviewer. The quality of the reviews was assessed using the AMSTAR 2 tool (A measurement tool to assess systematic reviews), with 16 items. A final categorization of the systematic reviews classified each as of 'high', 'moderate', 'low' or 'critically low' quality.

Results: Four systematic reviews were included in the current review. Three reviews were graded by AMSTAR 2 as 'moderate' quality, whereas one review was graded as 'critically low' quality.

Discussion: Only one systematic review included a meta-analysis. Substantial heterogeneity amongst the primary studies included within each systematic review was notable in preventing a pooled analysis.

Conclusions: From the limited 'moderate' to 'critically low' quality evidence available, the current umbrella review concluded that a weak association exists between CVDs and AP. In the future, well-designed, longitudinal clinical studies with long-term follow-up are required.

AB  - Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a feature of several types of human cancer, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). In the present study, tumor and margin cell cultures obtained from patients with OSCC were used to determine the expression patterns of certain EMT-associated markers, including vimentin, alpha -smooth muscle actin, SLUG and SNAIL. In addition, other EMT-associated features, including clonal, proliferative and migratory potential were compared between the two cell types. Cell cultures were generated from tumor and margin tissue samples from 6 patients and cultured up to the fifth passage. EMT marker expression was assessed by reverse transcription-quantitative PCR. Cell proliferation, colony formation and scratch wound healing assays were conducted to characterize the two cell types in terms of proliferation rates, clonality and motility. All of the studied markers were expressed in tumor and margin cells. Although no significant differences were noted with regard to the aforementioned markers, their expression tended to be higher in margin cultures than in tumor cultures. The expressions of the EMT markers were also higher in the fifth passage compared with those noted at the first with a few exceptions. The rates of proliferation and cell migration were decreased during passages, while the number of colonies was increased in both types of cell culture. Tumor and margin cells indicated certain similarities with regard to EMT transition characteristics.

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.

AB  - Background/Aim. Preterm birth is defined as a delivery prior to the completed 37th week of gestation. Literature data suggested that periodontal processes may influence to the feto-placental unit and induce preterm delivery. The degree of the periodontal disease is influenced by secretor status. Pro-inflammatory cytokines are involved in periodontitis as well as in delivery. The combined influence of these factors on the risk of preterm birth has not been explored. The aim of our study was to investigate the associations between periodontal diseases, secretor status, and interleukin1-b (IL1-ß) and prostaglandine E2 (PGE2) levels in women delivered preterm. Methods. The study included 56 preterm delivery women and 56 women delivered at term as a control group, aged between 17 and 41 years. Periodontal examination, blood and saliva sampling were performed within 48 hours following delivery. Secretor phenotype was determined by hemagglutination inhibition method. The concentrations of IL1-ß and PGE2 were measured by high sensitivity Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA). Results. In the pre-term birth group there were 66.1% of women with periodontitis, while in the control one there were 12.5% (p  lt  0.01). Concentrations of IL1-ß and PGE2 in plasma were significantly higher in the non-secretor group of women who gave birth pre-term and had periodontitis comparing to other groups. There was a significant correlation between salivary and plasma levels of PGE2 and IL1-ß in the preterm birth group (R = 0.416, p = 0.017 and R = -0.592, p  lt  0.001, respectively). There were no such correlations in women who delivered at term. Conclusion. Our results support the hypothesis that non-secretor phenotype and periodontitis are at least in part responsible for pathogenesis of preterm birth. This probability of negative impact of non-secretor status cannot be ignored. These findings support the need for additional research into the biology of human parturition.
AB  - Uvod/Cilj. Prevremeni porođaj se definiše kao porođaj pre navršene 37 nedelje gestacije. Podaci iz literature govore u prilog tome da periodontalni procesi mogu uticati na fetoplacentalnu jedinicu i indukovati preterminski porođaj. Sekretorni status može uticati na stepen periodontalne bolesti. Proinflamatorni citokini imaju uticaj na periodontitis kao i na porođaj. Kombinovani uticaj ovih faktora rizika za prevremeni porođaj nije dovoljno istražen. Cilj ove studije je bio da istraži povezanost između periodontalne bolesti, sekretornog statusa, nivoa interleukina 1-b (IL1-b) i prostaglandina E2 (PGE2) kod žena koje su imale prevremeni porođaj. Metode. Studijom je bilo obuhvaćeno 56 žena, koje su imale prevremen porođaj i 56 žena u kontrolnoj grupi koje su se porodile u terminu, starosti između 17 i 41 godine. Periodontalni pregled, uzorkovanje krvi i salive je izvršeno u prvih 48 sati po porođaju. Sekretorni status je određen metodom inhibicije hemaglutinacije. Koncentracije IL1-b i PGE2 su merene visoko senzitivnim Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) testom. Rezultati. U grupi prevremenih porođaja bilo je 66,1% žena sa periodontitisom, a u kontrolnoj grupi 12,5% (p  lt  0.01). Prevremeno porođene žena, nesekretori sa periodontitisom imale su u plazmi značajno više vrednosti IL 1-b i PGE 2 u odnosu na ostale grupe (p  lt  0,01). U grupi prevremeno porođenih žena postojala je značajna korelacija između salivarnih i plazmatskih koncentracija PGE2 i IL1-b (R = 0.416, p = 0.017 i R = -0,592, p  lt  0,001, redom). Ove korelacije nisu postojale kod žena koje su imale terminski porođaj. Zaključak. Naši rezultati podržavaju hipotezu da su sekretorni status i periodontitis, bar delimično, odgovorni za patogenezu preterminskog porođaja. Verovatnoća negativnog uticaja nesekretornog statusa se ne sme ignorisati. Ovi zaključci ukazuju na potrebu za dodatnim istraživanjima porođaja.

AB  - This retrospective cohort study aims to describe characteristics of patients with MRONJ, to identify factors associated with MRONJ development, and to examine variables associated with favourable outcome. Totally 32 patients were followed and observed: 21 females and 11 males, in the age range 35-84 in the period from 2009 to 2018. Clinical, radiological examination (Orthopantomograph and CBCT) and biopsy were performed in order to achieve diagnosis. Demographic and clinical variables were taken into consideration: sex, age, primary disease, medication type, mode of delivery, anatomic location, drug treatment duration, timing of tooth extraction, chemotherapy, presence of bone metastasis, aetiology of MRONJ, disease stage, and treatment modality. MRONJ developed under osteoporosis and malignant disease in 11 and 21 patients, respectively. MRONJ development was triggered by tooth extraction or trauma in 30 out of 32 cases, whereas the two patients developed MRONJ spontaneously. Stages I, II, and III were confirmed in 5 (16%), 18 (58%), and 9 (28%) patients, respectively. Mandible was affected in 23 (72%) patients. MRONJ was treated in our department by conservative and surgical modality. In this study we found that 65% of all patients were classified in the cured/improvement group and 35% in the stable/progression group. The female gender, osteoporosis as primary disease, oral regime intake, shorter period on BPs, earlier stage of disease, and specific anatomic localisation (frontal and premolar maxilla) were factors associated with better response to therapy and favourable clinical outcome. Comprehensive treatment protocol and further randomized studies are necessary for further improvements.

AB  - renewal and regeneration and the epidermis harbors a special cell population responsible for the process of self-renewal and regeneration of the skin, so called epidermal stem cells that have the ability to proliferate, migrate, differentiate, and undergo programmed cell death. If imbalance between these processes occurs, malignant transformation of healthy stem cell into the cancerous stem cell may happen. It is also known that a specific population of tumor cells called cancer stem cells is responsible for the hemoresistance, metastasis, and recurrence. Studies have shown that skin basal cell carcinoma is caused by stem cells of hair follicle, hair infundibulum and interfollicular epidermis. Basocellular carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant tumor of the skin, but it rarely gives metastases It is characterized by invasive growth, infiltrating surrounding structures and leading to serious functional and aesthetic defects. In the literature, inadequate margins are indicated as one of the key factors responsible for tumor recurrences. Studies have shown that for the primary facial skin BCC of less than 20 mm a margin of 3 mm is recommended. The aim of this study was to identify and characterize the cell subpopulation with stem characteristics whithin BCC and its margins (3 mm close) by testing proliferative, clonogenic and migratory potential, by analyzing the expression of embryonic, mesenchymal and tumor markers, by analizing biochemical structure of cells, by examining the differentiation potential of generated cell lines and by testing the degree of chemo-resistance. The study included 13 patients with primary BCC of face skin of less than 20 mm. Following a detailed anamnesis and a signed informed consent, the surgical excision which is considered a gold standard in BCC therapy, was done. A portion of the tumor tissue, of close margin (3 mm from the macroscopic tumor limit), and of healthy skin included in the resecion (at least 5mm from the macroscopic tumor limit), were obtained from all the patients. The remaining of the tissue was subjected to histopathological analysis.

abstract = "renewal and regeneration and the epidermis harbors a special cell population responsible for the process of self-renewal and regeneration of the skin, so called epidermal stem cells that have the ability to proliferate, migrate, differentiate, and undergo programmed cell death. If imbalance between these processes occurs, malignant transformation of healthy stem cell into the cancerous stem cell may happen. It is also known that a specific population of tumor cells called cancer stem cells is responsible for the hemoresistance, metastasis, and recurrence. Studies have shown that skin basal cell carcinoma is caused by stem cells of hair follicle, hair infundibulum and interfollicular epidermis. Basocellular carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant tumor of the skin, but it rarely gives metastases It is characterized by invasive growth, infiltrating surrounding structures and leading to serious functional and aesthetic defects. In the literature, inadequate margins are indicated as one of the key factors responsible for tumor recurrences. Studies have shown that for the primary facial skin BCC of less than 20 mm a margin of 3 mm is recommended. The aim of this study was to identify and characterize the cell subpopulation with stem characteristics whithin BCC and its margins (3 mm close) by testing proliferative, clonogenic and migratory potential, by analyzing the expression of embryonic, mesenchymal and tumor markers, by analizing biochemical structure of cells, by examining the differentiation potential of generated cell lines and by testing the degree of chemo-resistance. The study included 13 patients with primary BCC of face skin of less than 20 mm. Following a detailed anamnesis and a signed informed consent, the surgical excision which is considered a gold standard in BCC therapy, was done. A portion of the tumor tissue, of close margin (3 mm from the macroscopic tumor limit), and of healthy skin included in the resecion (at least 5mm from the macroscopic tumor limit), were obtained from all the patients. The remaining of the tissue was subjected to histopathological analysis. For cell phenotype characterization, tests of proliferation, colony formation, scratch assay, and sphere formation were used..., Homeostaza kože direktno zavisi od mehanizma kontinuiranog obnavljanja ćelijske populacije kože i njene sposobnosti regeneracije.

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  - CSC) 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. In the present study tumor and margin cell cultures obtained from patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma were used to determine the expression patterns in the course of time, of CSC-related markers (CD44, CD133, Oct-4, Sox2, Nanog), epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related markers (Vimentin, αSMA, SLUG and SNAIL), and features, i.e. the clonal, proliferative and migratory potential of the two types of cells. The aims of the study were to isolate cells from oral squamous cell carcinomas and their respective margins, to characterize these cells using CSC/EMT markers, to assess their self-renewal, proliferation and migration potential and determine their chemoresistance. Cell cultures were obtained from 12 tissue specimens (6 tumors and 6 margins). Total RNA was extracted and gene expression analysis was done by real-time PCR. Flow cytometry, immunocytometry, immunohistochemistry, Raman micro-spectroscopy, sphere formation, cell proliferation, colony forming, scratch wound healing and MTT assays were conducted to fully characterize the two cell types. With minor differences, cells originating from both tumors and tumor margins showed the presence of stem cell markers CD133, Nanog, Sox2, CD44, and Oct-4, had the capacity to form spheroids and showed chemoresistance/sensitivity. All the studied EMT markers were expressed in both tumor and margin cells, without statistically significant difference (p>0.05). With few exceptions, for both EMT and CSC markers, the expression was higher in the 5th passage compared to the 1st, probably as the consequence of culture enrichment with CSC in the course of time...
AB  - oviji podaci ukazuju na postojanje male subpopulacije kancerskih matičnih ćelija (KMĆ) koje su odgovorne za inicijaciju, progresiju i metastaziranje tumora.

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. In the present study tumor and margin cell cultures obtained from patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma were used to determine the expression patterns in the course of time, of CSC-related markers (CD44, CD133, Oct-4, Sox2, Nanog), epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)-related markers (Vimentin, αSMA, SLUG and SNAIL), and features, i.e. the clonal, proliferative and migratory potential of the two types of cells. The aims of the study were to isolate cells from oral squamous cell carcinomas and their respective margins, to characterize these cells using CSC/EMT markers, to assess their self-renewal, proliferation and migration potential and determine their chemoresistance. Cell cultures were obtained from 12 tissue specimens (6 tumors and 6 margins). Total RNA was extracted and gene expression analysis was done by real-time PCR. Flow cytometry, immunocytometry, immunohistochemistry, Raman micro-spectroscopy, sphere formation, cell proliferation, colony forming, scratch wound healing and MTT assays were conducted to fully characterize the two cell types. With minor differences, cells originating from both tumors and tumor margins showed the presence of stem cell markers CD133, Nanog, Sox2, CD44, and Oct-4, had the capacity to form spheroids and showed chemoresistance/sensitivity. All the studied EMT markers were expressed in both tumor and margin cells, without statistically significant difference (p>0.05). With few exceptions, for both EMT and CSC markers, the expression was higher in the 5th passage compared to the 1st, probably as the consequence of culture enrichment with CSC in the course of time..., oviji podaci ukazuju na postojanje male subpopulacije kancerskih matičnih ćelija (KMĆ) koje su odgovorne za inicijaciju, progresiju i metastaziranje tumora.

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  - Background Despite improvements in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) management, survival rates remain relatively low and novel anti-neoplastic agents are needed. Bromodomain and extra-terminal (BET) inhibitors proved to be promising agents for cancer treatment. We investigated the effects of three BET inhibitors (JQ1, IBET-151, IBET-762) on SCC-25 cell line and primary oral cancer cell culture. Methods Cell viability was evaluated by MTT. Protein levels of MCM5 and cleaved-PARP were estimated by Western blot. Clonogenic and migratory abilities were determined by colony forming and scratch assays. BET inhibitors effects on mRNA levels of E-Cadherin, Vimentin, SNAI1, SNAI2, CLU, SERPINI1, MCM5, c-Myc, E2F, IL7R, and PPARg were analyzed by qPCR. Results BET inhibitors significantly reduced oral cancer cell viability. JQ1 showed the greatest effect reducing cell viability to 10%, both in SCC-25 and primary OSCC cultures (P  lt  0.001), compared to control cells. Cells treated with BET inhibitors displayed a reduction to 50% in colony forming capacity compared to control cells (P  lt  0.0001) and the colonies were smaller; they also had a 50%-60% reduction in migratory capacity (P  lt  0.05) compared to untreated cells. BET inhibitors had a significant impact on genes related to epithelial to mesenchymal transition and other cancer cell markers, notably on MCM5, a gene related to cell cycle control. Conclusions BET inhibitors induce both OSCC cell death and reduction of tumor aggressiveness. Molecular mechanisms of BET inhibition involve among others, MCM5 downregulation. Importantly, this study demonstrates for the first time the anti-tumoral effect of IBET-151 and IBET-762 in oral cancer.

AB  - Background/Aim: Current approaches in therapy of head and neck cancers are surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. However, recurrence, development of multidrug resistance, side effects, and high costs of therapy are significant problems which point to the need for more efficient and less toxic drugs and interventions. Material and Methods: Eight essential oils obtained from Thymus serpyllum, Mentha piperita, Juniperus communis, Rosmarinus officinalis, Melissa officinalis, Achillea millefolium, Zingiber officinale, and Helichrysum arenarium were tested for their anti-proliferative on oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) culture and SCC-25 cell line. Cytotoxicity assays (MTT and Neutral red) were used to detect the effect of the mentioned essential oils. Results: T. serpyllum, M. piperita, J. communis, and R. officinalis essential oils exhibited the best anti-proliferative effect, on both types of cells. M. piperita had the greatest effect on SCC-25 cell line (4,5% of viable cells) and OSCC cells (7,2% of viable cells). Overall, cytotoxicity was higher in OSCC than in SCC-25 cell line. Conclusions: This study showed a clear anti-proliferative effect of four essential oils, in vitro making them novel potential antineoplastic agents.
