Periodontal healing following various implantation methods of BMP-2, bFGF-2 and EMD in circumferential defects
The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) is the oldest and most distinguished academic association in the area of periodontology, and among all academic associations in the field, it is considered by many to be the most authoritative in the world. The AAP has recognized this research in periodontal tissue regeneration, which was accomplished by combining two types each of the growth factors BMP-2, FGF-2 and EMD and applying the double layer constitution method, a new grafting method we developed. The results strongly suggested the necessity of securing space for regeneration of the respective periodontal tissues and further of controlling the growth factors used in accordance with the healing period, in order to achieve periodontal tissue regeneration.
This research was selected by the screening committee as one of eight finalists in the Basic Research division from among all the presentations submitted to the Research Forum Poster Sessions. It earned 1st place in the AAP’s competition, for which Assistant Prof. Saito was awarded the Research Forum Basic Science Award. The research was very well received by many periodontists and researchers from other countries, and she is very grateful for the honor.
