    Objective To study the characteristics of apoptosis in the condyles of osteoarthritic temporomandibular joints, and investigate its role in the pathogenesis of the disease. Methods Temporomandibular joint osteoarthrosis model of rabbits were created by partial resection of joint disc. The animal models~sacrificed in the 15th day, the 1st, the 2nd month, the 3th month, the 4th month, the 5th month, and the 6th month chronologically. Then the pathological condyles were sectioned and detected with TUNEL method to investigate the apoptosis within the tissue. Results In the reactive repairing state of osteoarthmsis, the apoptosis cells mainly located in the superficial fibrous layer of articular cartilage. With the remodeling of articular cartilage and bone, the apoptosis cells gradually appeared in the proliferating layer, especially in the "clusters of chondrocytes" . Accompanied with the severe damage and lose of articular cartilage, the phenomena of apoptosis decreased in the lower zone of cartilage and increased in the hypertrophic and calcified zone.Conclusion There were abundant phenomena of apoptosis within the condylar car tilage of osteoarthritic temporomandibular joint. Abnormal proliferation and abundant apoptosis would disturb the regulation mecha- nism in the cartilage matrix and lead to the osteoarthrosis.

    Objective This study~carried out to investigate the effects of insulin-like growth factor- II (IGF- II)and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on osteoprotegerin (OPG) secretion of periodontal ligament cells(PDLCs).Methods Healthy human premolars extracted for orthodontic reasons from 12一14 years old donators were obtained, and periodontal tissues were col- lected and cultured to obtain PDL cells. Primary or first passage PDLCs were cloned场means of limited dilutions. PDLCs with,- teoblastic phenotypes were characterized as follows; Alkaline phosphatase activity, collagen班production and bone-like nodules formation. IGF- I1 and bFGF~added into culture media and their effects on PDLCs proliferation and OPG secretion were ob- served. The OPG concentrations in cell culture supernatants were detected by sandwich ELISA. Living cell numbers were demon- strated by MTIT test. The average levels of OPG secretion场a single cell were calculated饰dividing OPG concentration with MTT- test result. Results Both IGF- II and bFGF upregulated the mtt values(P<0.05),but IGF-II downregulated the opg/mtt val- ues(P<0.05),whereas bFGF had no significant effect on opg/mtt values(P>0.05).Conclusion IGF-II enhances the pro- liferation of PDL cells but prohibits OPG secretion. Although bFGF has the same effect on the proliferation of PDL cells, it has no effect on OPG secretion. Before cytokines were used to enhance periodontal regeneration, their effects on local bone balance should also be studied.

Condylar marrow signal abnormalities were reviewed and classified into bone marrow edema pattern (hypo intense T1,hyperintense 712),sclerosis pattern (hypointense TI and hypointense 12) and combined edema and sclerosis pattern. Results Of 88) joints,13(14.8%) joints showed condylar marrow signal abnormalities , among which II belonged to edema pattern and, 1 was sclerosis pattern and the other was the combined pattern. Of 13 joints with condylar marrow signal abnormalities, 11(84.6%)had TMJID. Of 75 joints with normal marrow signal, 25(33.3%)joints had TMJID. There was significant correlation between condylar marrow signal ab- normalities and TMJID(P<0.05).Condusion Disc displacement is one of the factors inducing condylar marrow signal abnormalities. The pathological process from disc displacement to osteonecrosis requires further study.

    Objective To explore the feasibility of bovine pericardium used as a material for guiding bone regeneration. Methods 1 cm x 1 cm x 0.5 cm defects were created on both buccal sides of the mandibles of II dogs. One side was covered with Gl- utaraldehyde (GA) cross-linking bovine pericardium; no membrane covered side was used as control. The animals were sacrificed in 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 16 weeks after operation to observe the repair of the bone defects. Results 0Wounds healed well in 10 dogs. Meanwhile, wounds in dogs of 16 weeks group healed badly and severe inflammatory response was found in bovine pericardium treated area.②The pericardium can be maintained in vivo for 16 weeks without absorption, there were only mild infammatory cells invading.③ The bone defects covered with bovine pericardium repaired better than control groups significantly. Conclusion (I)GA bovine pericardium have the effect on guiding bone regeneration in the repair of dog experimental bone defects and it is possible that the bovine pericardium will be used as a new kind of GBR material;②GA bovine pericardium has good biocompatibility.

    Objective The aim of this experiment is to know whether active orthopedic appliance is rationale to do presurgical treatment and seek some regularities. Methods Laser scanning confocal microscopy and triple fluorochrome labeling in bone were used to observe and study detailed changes occured in compressed suture systematically. Results Widened suture and broken fibres between the adjoining bones was observed at the 3ed week postoperatively. At the 3th week hyperplasia of organic tissue com- portents was also seen. At the 6 and 9th week there were no apparent differences among all groups no matter whether in control group or experimental groups. Conclusion Retarding injury of compressed suture and surrounding tissue hyperplasia exists. With  growth and development wounded suture will gradually assimilate to control group structurally and functionally.
