Current epidemiological data suggest that dental infections affecting tooth-supporting tissues (periodontitis) can disseminate into the systemic circulation and thereby contribute to atherosclerosis progression. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the effect of repeated systemic inoculations with Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg), a

Rabbits fed a 1% cholesterol diet with or without the antioxidant butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) developed typical atherosclerotic lesions. The addition of BHT gave higher levels of total cholesterol (+40%), triglycerides (+250%), low density lipoprotein (LDL), and very low density lipoprotein

In the present study two new series of Hantzsch 1,4-dihydropyridine derivatives (1,4-DHPs) containing substituted pyrazole moiety (4a-f and 5a-f) were synthesized by the reaction of 3-aryl-1H-pyrazole-4-carbaldehydes with 1,3-dicarbonylcompounds (ethylacetoacetate and methylacetoacetate) and ammonium acetate. The newly synthesized compounds were characterized

Although the average American's daily consumption of BHT can be measured in milligrams, there are numerous reports that BHT causes organ damage in laboratory animals. Only a few genotoxic effects of BHT have been reported, however, including mutagenicity in the
