Our objective is to conduct a double blinded, 2 years follow up clinical trial to compare the success of endodontic treatment in primary teeth using mechanized reciprocating ins...

Controlled Exposures to Air Pollution in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease

Air pollution is a major cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The components of air pollution responsible and the mechanisms through which they might mediate these harmful effects remain only partially understood. We hypothesise that these adverse effects are mediated by combustion derived air pollutants and that even a brief exposure will effect heart and blood vessel function. We assess the effect of dilute diesel exhaust inhalation at levels encountered in urban ...

They constitute a serious public health problem in all countries throughout the world, in particular in low and middle income countries and in deprived populati...

Improving the Behavioural Impact of Air Quality Alerts

The evidence shows that adherence to air quality advice to adopt protective behaviours during pollution episodes is suboptimal, and that the traditional strategy of simply informing people about high pollution episodes is not effective. The aim of the present study was to investigate how to improve the behavioural impact of existing air quality alert messages through a systematic manipulation of key communication variables, including perceived susceptibility, self-efficacy, res...

Diesel Exhaust Inhalation, Systemic Nitric Oxide Inhibition and Cardiac Output

Exposure to combustion-derived fine particulate air pollution is associated with cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. In previous studies, exposure to diesel exhaust (a major constituent of urban particulate air pollution) has been shown to impair two important functions of the vascular endothelium: vascular vasomotor function and endogenous fibrinolysis. Our subsequent studies suggest this impairment of vascular function is mediated by a reduction in nitric oxide bioavailab...

Pulpectomy of Primary Molars With Rotary Instrumentation Versus Manual Instrumentation

One of the major concerns in pediatric dentistry is premature loss of necrotic primary teeth which may cause a deleterious effect on the growth of the facial skeletal complex. In order to sustain the primary tooth as a natural space maintainer, pulpectomy is considered the treatment of choice. The essential part of endodontic treatment is to shape and clean the root canal effectively from infected tissue with microbial reduction, whilst maintaining the original configuration ...

Commuter Air Pollution Intervention Study

Traffic related air pollution is a well-recognised and much studied contributor to smog and is linked to a number of adverse health outcomes. Although traffic pollutants can travel long distances, exposure to the highest levels of the raw emissions can occur closest to the source; e.g. in a car in dense traffic conditions. Time spent in-vehicle may contribute up to half of commuters' daily exposure to certain air pollutants. Most new cars now have or allow for a cabin air filte...
