Plaque biofilm microbial diversity in infants aged 12 months and their mothers with or without dental caries: a pilot study.

Summary of "Plaque biofilm microbial diversity in infants aged 12 months and their mothers with or without dental caries: a pilot study."

A number of studies on oral microbial diversity of early childhood caries (ECC) have tended to focus on mid- or late-stage of ECC, with a lack of research into early stage of tooth eruption and maternal influence. The aims of this study are to compare the supragingival plaque biofilm microbiota diversity between mothers with or without dental caries and their 12-month-old infants, and to explore the relationship of microbial diversity between infants and their mothers, using sequencing analysis.

A Study of the dosage and duration for levobupivacaine infusion by the caudal-epidural route in infants aged 3-6 months.

To investigate total serum levobupivacaine concentrations after a caudal-epidural loading dose followed by a maintenance infusion in infants aged 3-6 months over 48 hours.

Deterministic assembly and diversity gradient altered the biofilm community performances of bioreactors.

Community assembly process (determinism vs. stochasticity) determines the composition and diversity of microbial community, and then shapes its functions. Understanding this complex process and its re...

Metagenomic Analysis of Zinc Surface-Associated Marine Biofilms.

Biofilms are a significant source of marine biofouling. Marine biofilm communities are established when microorganisms adhere to immersed surfaces. Despite the microbe-inhibiting effect of zinc surfac...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A species of RUBULAVIRUS associated particularly with acute laryngotracheitis (CROUP) in children aged 6 months to 3 years.

A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.

DIARRHEA occurring in infants from newborn to 24-months old.

Disorders caused by nutritional imbalance, either overnutrition or undernutrition, occurring in infants ages 1 month to 24 months.

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
