Research Award 2010/2011

Publication of new results is the basis of scientific progress. The CAMLOG Foundation encourages the presentation of funded projects at the International CAMLOG Congresses and their publication in peer-reviewed journals.

We received many high-level applications and thank everbody for participation and are proud to announce the following winners:

1st Place

Bone morphogenetic proteins 2, 5, and 6 in combination stimulate osteoblasts but not osteoclasts in vitro.

Bone regeneration is required for fracture healing. Various procedures have been used to promote osteogenesis with bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). We assessed the effects of BMP-2, BMP-5, and BMP-6 in isolated and combined use on the generation of osteoblasts and osteoclasts by comparing the osteoclastic potency of each on osteoclasts of primary murine bone marrow cells.

2nd Place

Assessment of lipopolysaccharide microleakage at conical implant-abutment connections.

The aim of this in vitro study was to assess lipopolysaccharide microleakage at conical implant-abutment connections of two-piece dental implants in terms of the expression levels of genes involved in lipopolysaccharide-mediated proinflammatory cytokine production.

Dr. Sönke Harder

3rd Place

Surgical therapy of advances ligature-induced peri-implantitis defects: cone-beam computed tomographic and histological analysis.

To evaluate radiological bone level (RBL) (i.e. cone-beam computed tomography) and histological bone levels (HBL) as well as re-osseointegration [bone-to-implant contact (BIC)] after surgical resective (i.e. implantoplasty) and/or regenerative therapy of advanced ligature-induced peri-implantitis in dogs.
