The natriuretic peptide (NP) system comprises of three ligands, the Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP), Brain Natriuretic peptide (BNP) and C-type Natriuretic peptide (CNP), and three natriuretic peptide receptors, NPRA, NPRB and NPRC. Here we present a comprehensive study of the natriuretic peptide system in healthy murine and human submandibular salivary glands (SMGs). We show CNP is the dominant NP in mouse and human SMG and is expressed together with NP receptors in ducts, autonomic nerves and the microva...
The self-perception of weight and weight loss attempts might promote weight loss and maintenance.
Purpose The overall goal of the current study was to identify an optimal level and duration of acoustic experience that facilitates language development for pediatric cochlear implant (CI) recipients-specifically, to determine whether there is an optimal duration of hearing aid (HA) use and unaided threshold levels that should be considered before proceeding to bilateral CIs. Method A total of 117 pediatric CI recipients (ages 5-9 years) were given speech perception and standardized tests of receptive vocab...
Fraser syndrome (MIM#219000) is an autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by the association of cryptophthtalmos, syndactyly of the four extremities, urinary tract abnormalities and laryngo-tracheal anomalies. This condition is due to homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the FRAS/FREM complex genes: FRAS1, FREM2 and GRIP1. Here we report two atypical cases of Fraser syndrome due to mutations in the FRAS1 gene without cryptophthalmos. The first proband had syndactyly of three extremities, bi...
This pilot study aimed to 1) follow the longitudinal changes in the salivary oxytocin level of pregnant women from late pregnancy to early postpartum, 2) examine the factors related to these changes, and 3) clarify the association of these changes with mother-infant bonding.
Reading and writing skills are important for hearing-impaired children since these skills help them to develop their language skills, but the prevalence of reading/writing difficulties and its effects on language development aspects among them are unclear. In this study, we identified language development features and demographic factors of Japanese hearing-impaired children diagnosed as having reading/writing difficulties.
Auditory training (AT), which is active listening to various auditory stimuli, aims to improve auditory skills. There is evidence that AT can be used as a tool in auditory rehabilitation to improve speech perception and other auditory cognitive skills in individuals with hearing impairment. The present state-of-the-art review examines the effect of AT on communication abilities in individuals with hearing impairment. In particular, transfer of AT effects on performance in untrained speech perception tasks w...
The first contact of tannins with the human body occurs in the mouth, where some of these tannins are known to interact with salivary proteins, in particular with proline-rich proteins (PRPs). These interactions are important at a sensory level, especially for astringency development, but could also affect the biological activities of the tannins. This study gathers information on the relative affinity of the interaction, complexes stoichiometry and tannin molecular epitopes of binding for the interactions ...
What is the optimal testing strategy for oropharyngeal Neisseria gonorrhoeae in men who have sex with men? Comparing selective testing versus routine universal testing from Dutch STI clinic data (2008-2017).
The majority of oropharyngeal Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections are asymptomatic, and many infections remain undetected, creating a reservoir for ongoing transmission and potential drug resistance. It is unclear what the optimal testing policy is in men who have sex with men (MSM), as routine universal testing data are lacking.
Interleukin (IL)-17A and IL-18 have been proposed to play important roles in periodontitis and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), but human data are conflicting. The present study aimed to investigate the roles of IL-17A and IL-18 in periodontitis and DM by measuring salivary and serum levels, respectively.
The Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology (MSRSGC) aims to provide a common language for risk stratification and management. We examine the incidence of MSRSGC categories and the corresponding risk of malignancy (ROM) within a tertiary referral centre in Southeast Asia.
In social settings, speech waveforms from nearby speakers mix together in our ear canals. Normally, the brain unmixes the attended speech stream from the chorus of background speakers using a combination of fast temporal processing and cognitive active listening mechanisms. Of >100,000 patient records,~10% of adults visited our clinic because of reduced hearing, only to learn that their hearing was clinically normal and should not cause communication difficulties. We found that multi-talker speech intelligi...
Cochlear implantation (CI) is an effective treatment option for patients with severe-to-profound hearing loss. When CI first started, it was recommended to wait until at least 4 weeks after the CI surgery for the initial activation because of possible complications. Advances in the surgical techniques and experiences in fitting have made initial activation possible within 24 h.
Laboratory professionals can contribute to improvement of diagnosis in the context of the total testing process (TTP), a multidisciplinary framework complementary to the diagnostic process. While the testing process has been extensively characterized in the literature, needed is accurate identification of the source of the term "total testing process". This article clarifies first appearance of the term in the literature and supplies a formal definition.
To educate nurses and physicians on changing practice from visual estimation of blood loss to quantification of blood loss (QBL) and to replace estimation of blood loss with QBL for at least 85% of vaginal births during a 3-month period.
Many people experience aging-related losses in different physical domains, which leads to a condition often called physical frailty (PF). The aim of this study was to analyse the effects of two different, 28-weeks, class chair-exercise protocols on salivary steroid hormones (SH), PF, and functional disabilities (FD) in frail older women.
Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) has emerged as a promising target for developing radionuclide therapy (RNT) in prostate cancer; however, accumulation of PSMA-RNT in salivary glands can result in irreversible xerostomia. Methods to prevent PSMA-RNT-related xerostomia could be clinically useful; however, little is known about PSMA expression in salivary glands of preclinical animal models. Using [F]DCFPyL autoradiography/biodistribution, PSMA expression levels were determined in salivary glands of v...
This preliminary study provides a combined sound therapeutic strategy (called T-MIST) for the management of tinnitus patients with normal hearing thresholds. It takes into account individual tinnitus characteristics and personal choices of sounds to provide an efficient intervention. High-resolution pure tone audiometry was used to measure precise tinnitus pitch and loudness. A Residual Inhibition Test (RIT) was performed using narrow band noise matched to tinnitus frequency at 10 dB above perceived tinnitu...
To suggest the optimal timing for newborn hearing screening to obtain an ideal and stable referral rate in well babies and in babies in neonatal intensive care units (NICU).
Purpose The aim of this study was to examine how hearing aid candidates perceive user-driven and app-controlled hearing aids and the effect these concepts have on traditional hearing health care delivery. Method Eleven adults (3 women, 8 men), recruited among 60 participants who had completed a research study evaluating an app-controlled, self-fitting hearing aid for 12 weeks, participated in a semistructured interview. Participants were over 55 years of age and had varied experience with hearing aids and s...
Each person experienced an unpleasant sensation of congestion of the ear during a flight or in rhinorrhea, which is caused by dysfunction of the Eustachian tube (ET). People with persistent ET dysfunction live with this sensation for months and years. Persistent ET dysfunction in children reaches 40%, in adults it is up to 5%. Most of the pathological conditions of the middle ear, leading to socially significant hearing loss, and the main reasons for failures in hearing-improving operations are associated w...
The value of testing for folate deficiency has been scrutinized recently given low prevalence of deficiency with widespread dietary fortification. Numerous studies have shown folate testing to be low yield overall. However, the value of such testing in the inpatient cancer population has not been defined.
Physical exercise is known to activate the sympathetic nervous system, which influences the production of saliva from salivary glands. Our examination of saliva collected from highly trained athletes before and after a number of physical competititions showed an increase in the secretion of S-type cystatins and cystatin C as a subacute response to aerobic and anaerobic exercise. The elevation in salivary cystatins was transient and the recovery time course differed from that of amylase and other salivary pr...
