5-HT7 receptors are over-expressed in patients with nasal polyps.

Nasal polyposis (NP) is an inflammatory disease of the paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity. The primary purpose of our study is to determine the expression of 5-HT7 receptors both in nasal polyps and in healthy tissue in the nasal cavity. The subsequent aim is to compare the expression of 5-HT7 receptors in patients with NP and in inferior turbinate tissue (control). The study included 60 participa...

The maxillary nerve block for in-office hybrid balloon sinus dilation procedures: A preliminary study.

Transitioning of rhinologic procedures from the operating room to the office setting in selected patients is a rising trend. An effective pain-control, patient-preparation protocol is essential, especially with advanced in-office rhinologic procedures such as hybrid balloon sinus dilation (BSD), in which other procedures such as ethmoidectomy, turbinate reduction, and other procedures are concomit...

Assessment of cellular and serum proteome from tongue squamous cell carcinoma patient lacking addictive proclivities for tobacco, betel nut and alcohol: Case study.

The intriguing molecular pathways involved in oral carcinogenesis are still ambiguous. The oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) ranks as the most common type constituting more than 90% of the globally diagnosed oral cancers cases. The elevation in the OSCC incidence rate during past ten years has an alarming impression on human healthcare. The major challenges associated with OSCC include delayed d...

Honokiol-Inspired Analogs as Inhibitors of Oral Bacteria.

The oral microbiome is a complex ecological niche where both commensal and pathogenic bacteria coexist. Previous reports have cited that the plant isolate honokiol is a potent inhibitor of S. mutans biofilms. Herein we report a cross-coupling method that provides access to a concise library of honokiol-inspired analogs. Through this work we determined that the inhibitory activity of honokiol is hi...

Accuracy of linear measurements performed with two imaging software in cone-beam computed tomography scans of dry human mandibles.

The present study aimed to assess the accuracy of linear measurements performed with two software packages in multislice (MSCT) and cone beam (CBCT) computed tomography (CT) images. The sample consisted of 10 human mandibles marked standardly 8 times with metallic orthodontic wires. The mandibles underwent both MSCT and CBCT scanning and were measured linearly and digitally with two software packa...

Dental status, oral prosthesis and chewing ability in an adult and elderly population in southern Brazil.

The objective of this study was to explore the factors associated with inadequate chewing in an adult and elderly population of a city in the southern region of Brazil.

Videofluoroscopic analysis of different volumes of liquid bolus swallowing in healthy individuals: comparison between height and sex.

The volume of swallowed bolus affects the pharyngeal transit duration. The sex and corporal height of individuals may likely influence this effect. The aim of this investigation was to determine the influence of sex and corporal height on the pharyngeal transit modification produced by the swallowed bolus volume.

Adverse Effects of Silver Diamine Fluoride Treatment among Preschool Children.

This randomized clinical trial aimed to compare the adverse effects and parental satisfaction following the different regimes of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) treatment among preschool children. A total of 888 preschool children who had active dentin caries received different SDF application regimes: group 1, 12% SDF applied annually; group 2, 12% SDF applied semiannually; group 3, 38% SDF applied...

Multiple Socioeconomic Factors and Dental Caries in Swedish Children and Adolescents.

The study aimed to explore associations between multiple socioeconomic factors and dental caries experience in Swedish children and adolescents (3-19 years old). Electronic dental records from 300,988, in a Swedish region (97.3% coverage) were collected using the DMFT indices (decayed, missing, filled teeth: dependent variables). Socioeconomic status (SES) data (ethnicity, wealth, parental educati...

In silico analysis of the competition between Streptococcus sanguinis and Streptococcus mutans in the dental biofilm.

During dental caries, the dental biofilm modifies the composition of the hundreds of involved bacterial species. Changing environmental conditions predisposes competition. A pertinent model to exemplify the complex interplay of the microorganisms in the human dental biofilm is the competition between Streptococcus sanguinis (S. sanguinis) and Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans). It has been reported ...

Difficulties in classifying body cavity fluids into transudate/ exudate depending on the various diagnostic criteria.

Disease processes may impair the production and reabsorption of fluid from in the body cavities, which results in its excessive accumulation.

Lactobacillus gasseri endocarditis on the aortic valve bioprosthesis - a case report.

Lactobacillus is a genus of Gram-positive, facultative anaerobic/ microaerophilic, rod-shaped bacteria. Lactobacilli constitute a significant component of the human microbiota in the oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract and female urogenital tract. They are also widely used as probiotics. Rarely, especially in patients with impaired immunity or with structural heart disease, do Lactobacilli become ...

Movements of the Tongue during Lip Trills in Horn Players: Real-Time MRI Insights.

Movements inside the oral cavity during lip trilling in horn-playing are poorly understood and controversial, particularly with respect to pedagogy. Developments in real-time magnetic resonance imaging (RT-MRI) allow representations of oral cavity movement during lip trill performance on a MRI-compatible horn to be recorded and quantified.

Reduced salivary flow rate and high levels of oxidative stress in whole saliva of children with Down syndrome.

To investigate salivary parameters between children with Down Syndrome (DS) and without DS.

Outcome of orthodontic palatal plate therapy for orofacial dysfunction in children with Down syndrome: A systematic review.

To evaluate the effects of orthodontic palatal plate therapy (OPPT) in the treatment of orofacial dysfunction in children with Down syndrome (DS). Indexed databases were searched. Clinical trials in DS allocated to test (treatment with palatal plates) versus control group (without palatal plates/special physiotherapy for orofacial stimulation) with follow-up of any time duration and assessing mout...

Schedules of Controlled Substances: Placement of FDA-Approved Products of Oral Solutions Containing Dronabinol (-)-delta-9-trans- tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC) in Schedule II. Final rule.

This final rule adopts without changes an interim final rule with request for comments published in the Federal Register on March 23, 2017. On July 1, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new drug application for Syndros, a drug product consisting of dronabinol [(-)-delta-9-trans-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC)] oral solution. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) ma...

Metformin Effects on Metabolic Coupling and Tumor Growth in Oral Cavity Squamous Cell Carcinoma Coinjection Xenografts.

Objective Many aggressive head and neck cancers contain 2 metabolically coupled tumor compartments: a glycolytic stromal compartment with low caveolin-1 (CAV1) and high monocarboxylate transporter 4 (MCT4) expression and a highly proliferative carcinoma cell compartment with high MCT1. Metabolites are shuttled by MCTs from stroma to carcinoma to fuel tumor growth. We studied the effect of carcinom...

Maternal white blood cell count cannot identify the presence of microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity or intra-amniotic inflammation in women with preterm prelabor rupture of membranes.

The main aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the maternal white blood cell (WBC) count at the time of hospital admission in pregnancies complicated by preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (PPROM) and the presence of microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity (MIAC) and/or intra-amniotic inflammation (IAI). The second aim was to test WBC diagnostic indices with respect to th...
