    Abstract: Statins, specifically hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme-A reductase inhibitors (HMG-Co-A), are well-recognized for their capacity to reduce plasma cholesterol levels. Nevertheless, a comprehensive investigation into the biocompatibility of Simvastatin with human dental pulp cells has been somewhat lacking. The principal objective of this study was to ... Show More

    Abstract: The cracking resistance of base-coat & render are important for ETICS. The current cracking resistance test method can not correctly characterize the cracking resistance of base-coat & render. The suitability of the self-developed test method for cracking resistance and the existing methods was studied and compared. The results show: the value of t... Show More
