Journal of Dental Research Special Issue: Interface Between Materials and Oral Biology

0 759

Alexandria, Va., USA — Understanding the way materials interact with tissues and organisms at the cellular and molecular levels, and at a variety of different size scales, is critical for advancing the development of this new generation of materials, as well as for enhancing existing biomaterials. The Journal of Dental Research (JDR) special issue “Interface Between Materials and Oral Biology” features research reports and critical reviews that highlight the complex interactions occurring between biomaterials and fluids, living cells, and tissues. The Editors of this special issue are Jack L. Ferracane and Luiz E. Bertassoni of the Oregon Health & Science University, OR, Portland, USA.

Dental Mitigation Strategies to Reduce Aerosolization of SARS-CoV-2

0 1391

Alexandria, Va., USA — Limiting infection transmission is central to the safety of all in dentistry, particularly during the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, yet many dental procedures unavoidably generate aerosols. In the study “Dental Mitigation Strategies to Reduce Aerosolization of SARS-CoV-2,” published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), researchers at the University of Leeds, England, UK used a ‘phantom head’ model to mimic dental procedures in a multifaceted approach to measure aerosol dispersal in a dental surgery setting and determine the potential of different mitigation strategies to reduce the infection risk to the dental team from bioaerosol exposure during routine dental procedures.

Alexandria, Va., USA  The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) announced the 2021 recipients of the IADR/AADR William J. Gies Awards for the best papers published in the IADR/AADR Journal of Dental Research. The winners were recognized during the Opening Ceremonies of the virtual 99th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR, held in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting of the AADR and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research (CADR), on July 21-24, 2021.

Mouthwashes With CPC Reduce the Infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 Variants in Vitro

0 1032

Alexandria, Va., USA — Certain mouthwashes decrease the infectivity of respiratory viruses including SARS-CoV-2 but the agents with antiviral activity present in these oral rinses and their mechanisms of action remain largely unknown. The study “Mouthwashes With CPC Reduce the Infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 Variants in Vitro,” published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), shows that show that cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), a quaternary ammonium compound present in many oral mouthwashes, reduces SARS-CoV-2 infectivity by inhibiting the viral fusion step with target cells after disrupting the integrity of the viral envelope.
