“A vast contribution

in the future

of the dental research field�

Description: The Standing Committee on Research and Education within IADS is proud to assure the successful continuity of the International Dental Research Program - the first worldwide dental research exchange network which aims to transfer and foster research knowledge to the ones who desire to make a difference within their dental communities. The students will attend dental research internships which consist of assisting a dental research project developed within |3

a foreign University partner of the IDRP network. The internships takes place for about 2 to 8 weeks, the students being selected through a rigurous selection process and eventually having the facilities covered by the host university. In 2012, Universities from 16 countries offer research internships to talented dental students and young graduates: Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Iran, Indonesia, Malaysia, Romania, USA, Russian Federation, Italy, Egypt, Armenia, India, Turkey. The Program is a new limestone in the dental student research activity, which purposes to enlighten talented dental students who one day will be the ones to push dentistry towards innovative and more successful treatments.

To verify this hypothesis, two different studies will be designed with these interim aims: 1. Evaluation of caries experience and prevalence, backgroung facor with a particular focus on dietary pattern and taste preference in different geographical areas. 2.

Since for the development and metastasis of oral squamous cell carcinoma (oscc) is crucial to acquire an angiogenic and lymphangiogenesis phenotype by the malignant cells, we pursue the following objectives: 1)the angiogenic and lymphangiogenic phenotype for different oscc variants; 2)identification of some statistics meaningful differences between sanguine and lymphatic vessels microdensity in oscc variants, and also between intra- and peritumoral vessels microdensity; 3)quantification of proangiogenic and lymphangiogenic factor expression in tumoral cells and their stromal cellular partners and the expression rate of their receptors in endothelial cells.

To carry out all these desideratum we will use the following methods: 1)histopathological analysis for the estimation of oscc variants, the degree of differentiation, the depth and pattern of invasion; 2)simple and double immunohistochemical analysis to investigate the phenotype of newborn vessels, involvement of proangiogenic and lymphangiogenic factors and cellular stromal partners in oscc neovasculogenesis; 3) morphometrical analysis for the estimation of sanguine and lymphatic vessels microdensity and cellular stromal partners; 4)statistic analysis for identification of meaningful statistic correlations between morphoclinical parameters and vessels microdensity, the degree of proangiogenic and lymphangiogenic factor expression and cellular stromal partners density in different oscc variants.

The project is focused on methods of retention and stabilizations of complete and partial removable dentures, principles of design of removable partial dentures, laboratory stages during removable dentures fabrication. Retention is the principle that describes how well the denture resists the force of gravity, adhesiveness of foods and the forces associated with the opening of the jaws. Denture is prevented from moving in the vertical plane. Stability is defined as the quality of a denture to be firm or constant to resist displacement by functional stresses. Stability is the principle that describes how well the denture base is prevented from moving in the horizontal plane, withstands horizontal forces. During our research project we pay attention on the factors which affected on stability and retention: 1.Anatomical factors, which include size and quality of denture bearing area.

mospheric pressure and peripheral seal. 4. Mechanical factors (implants, denture adhesives, clasp systems). Before designing a removable partial denture we do surveying. Objectives of surveying are the followings: 1. To design a removable partial denture such that it’s rigid and flexible components are appropriately positioned to obtain good retention and bracing. 2. To determine the path of insertion of a prosthesis such that there is no interference to insertion along this path. 3. To mark the height of contour of the area (hard and soft tissues) above the undercut. 4. To mark the survey lines (height of contour of a tooth). 5. To mark the undesirable undercuts into which the prosthesis should not extend.During laboratory stages we study casting procedures of removable partial dentures metal framework, stages of acrylic resin polimerisation.The research work will include statistical, clinical, experimental components of chair scientific work.

The project is in full compliance with research and development strategy of the Czech Ministry of Health, presenting the thesis linking the basic and applied research. The project will continue to develop unique methods and international cooperation.The proposed project is focused on modifying stem cell culture conditions of human dental pulp in order to sustain the isolated cell lines characteristics of stem cells and culture to achieve higher yields. Properties of cultured cells will be characterized over time in correlation with cells grown in medium containing calf (animal) serum. The examination will focus on the growth characteristics of

In addition, using human plasma will facilitate the transfer of experimental findings to the possible therapeutic applications of stem cells. What will be the student’s involvement within the research project? : The students will get a chance to participate, observe and also assist in research and the experiments.
