In Group C no intervention was done for first 4 days, on 5th day rabbits were given acute nephrotoxic single dose of amphotericin B deoxycholate6 (inj Fungizone, Bristol Myers Squibb, Turkey), 4mg/kg as slow IV infusion diluted in 5% dextrose water and sacrificed on 6th day.
A 450 [micro]L aliquot comprised of 400 [micro]L of Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium (DMEM) supplemented with 10% FBS, 100 U/mL of penicillin and streptomycin, and 1 U/mL of fungizone and gentamycin was added to each tube, and the sample was homogenized using a micropestle.
After the mosquitoes were sedated, the legs were removed from 12-30 mosquitoes and placed in 1 mL mosquito diluent (20% heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum in Dulbecco phosphate-buffered saline plus 50 [micro]g/mL penicillin/streptomycin, 50 [micro]g/mL gentamicin, and 2 [micro]g/mL Fungizone [Sigma Aldrich, St.
5 mm trephine drill (Smith & Nephew, Hoofddorp, NL) while cooling with sterile phosphate-buffered saline (PBS; Sigma, Zwijndrecht, NL) supplemented with 200 U/ml penicillin (Lonza, Westburg, Leusden, NL), 200 [micro]g/ml streptomycin (Lonza, Westburg, Leusden, NL) and 5 [micro]g/ml fungizone (LifeTechnologies, Bleiswijk, NL).
Fungizone and fetal bovine serum (FBS) were obtained from Gibco (Bristol, UK), and trypsin-EDTA was obtained from Fluka (Gillingham, UK).
All collected cells were pooled as the hPDLs, and cultured in DMEM with 10% fetal calf serum, penicillin, streptomycin, and fungizone for 1 week, whereas the tooth was placed in flask and cells slowly migrated from the root surfaces for 3 weeks were considered as hRDCs according to that described in the previous study.
3) Culture medium- The commonly used culture medium for oral mucosa reconstruction is Dulbecco's modified Eagle medium (DMEM)-Ham's F-12 medium (3:1), supplemented with fetal calf serum (FCS), glutamine, epidermal growth factor (EGF), hydrocortisone, adenine, insulin, transferrin, triiodothyronine, fungizone, penicillin, and streptomycin (11).
To activate and prepare virus for harvesting, kid kidney cells and testis were grown in tissue culture flasks at 37 Co in the growth medium containing 10% foetal calf serum, 1% fungizone (250ug/ml), 0.
Confusion arose as the original "conventional" form, branded as Fungizone, has a dose of about 1mg per kg of a patient's weight, but modern forms, branded as Ambizone and Abelcet, had dosages of 3mg and 5mg per kg.
The supernatant was collected and treated with antibiotic (penicillin 10,000 units/ml; streptomycin 10,000 units/ ml) and fungizone (250 mg/ml) for 30-60 min at 4[degrees]C before inoculation into chicken embryos.
