The transfer ofnucleic acids makes it possible to strengthen the body´s own cell productionof particular or combined cytokines like BMP-2 and TGF-Beta or IGF withoutthe drawbacks of direct applications of recombinant proteins. Until now, thecentral issue of bioactive surfaces has been stability and release behaviour.This problem could be resolved completely by a special coating procedure withPDLLA.Methods: Pre-test series yielded an abrasion of 5% of the complete coatingduring the implantation procedure. In an experimental study with 18 Göttingenminipigs 6 coated implants with different concentrations of BMP-2-plasmidwere inserted into the maxilla in a split-mouth-design. Controls were madewith reporter gene or recombinant protein BMP-2. Evaluation of bone-implant-interface and bone regeneration took place after 14, 28 and 56 days by per-forming µCT, histology, immunhistochemistry and polymerase chain reaction(PCR).results: All coatings with nucleic acid achieved significant higher mineraliza-tion rates after 14 and 28 days (31.4% ± 4.8/64.5%± 5.1) than controls (22.9%±4.3/47.8%± 8.4) (p ‹ 0,05), so that osseointegration was more advanced in thenucleic acid therapy groups. The most effective combination seems to be BMP-2 with a DNA concentration of 12 µg, because the precedent vascularizationenhances the dimension stability of the newly formed bone.

The aim of this pilot study was to establish a model forperiimplantitis in mice as a base for tests with immune-deficient knockoutorganisms to improve the knowledge about development and progression ofperiimplantitis.Methods: In 8 mice titanium implants were inserted in the median of the pal-ate. 4 of these implants had ligatures (periimplantitis group). After two weeksof healing time the animals received a special diet enriched with sugar andflavor. After nine weeks micro-CT examinations to evaluate the periimplant tis-sue and histologies were performed.results: Dental implant insertions within the oral cavity are possible in liv-ing mice. Implants with ligatures showed significantly larger periimplant bonedefects than controls. The radiologic findings were confirmed by histology. Atthe end of the observation period, the portion of implants lost was higher inthe ligature group.Conclusions: This is the first publication to describe the insertion of dentalimplants in living mice. Additionally, it is the first time that periimplant infec-tion could be induced in that species. This model will pave the way to studyknockout-mice with reduced or even enhanced resistance to periimplantitis. 67
