This study uses novel household survey data that are representative of Bangladesh's large cities, and of slum and nonslum areas within the cities, to investigate the effects of demographic and socioeconomic factors on child nutrition status in 2013. The study also decomposes the difference in mean child nutrition status between slum and nonslum areas in 2013, and the increase in mean child nutrition...
The health consequences of child labor are ambiguous. On the one hand, heavy lifting, using dangerous tools and handling fertilizers may impact negatively on health. On the other, child labor could be used to achieve a minimal subsistence standard, without which the child could experience deteriorating health. Previous empirical studies are inconclusive because, until now, existing data sources could...
This study evaluated the effects of 5‐fluorouracil (5‐FU) and cisplatin (CIS) in healthy periodontal tissues and in the early stages of experimental periodontitis (EP) in rats.
One hundred and eighty male rats were divided into three groups, which were submitted to the following systemic treatments: physiological saline solution (PSS); CIS and 5FU. Each group was subdivided into two...
To measure the prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity (DH) in adolescents.
The diagnosis was based on self‐report and was confirmed by tactile and evaporative tests. The association between DH and predictor factors was determined using a multivariate model. The sample consisted of 384 adolescents.
The prevalence was 19.0%. DH prevalence to tactile stimulus was higher in those...
Industry sponsorship might distort the conduct and findings of studies in a large range of medical disciplines. The objective of this study was to assess whether industry sponsorship bias is present in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on dental implants.
Material and methods
Two databases were searched (MEDLINE; Web of Science) to identify RCTs published between 1996 and 2016 assessing different...
This cross‐sectional case–control study was designed to determine the association of the salivary concentration of CD9/CD81 exosome‐related tetraspanins with the periodontal clinical status.
Materials and Methods
Saliva samples from 104 periodontitis patients and 45 healthy controls were collected. Periodontal status was assessed based on full‐mouth clinico‐radiographical data, and salivary...
The aim was to identify benefit thresholds for clinical variables. We hypothesize, if variables fall below or exceed these threshold levels, systemic amoxicillin/metronidazole may contribute to reducing progression of periodontitis.
Material & Methods
This is an explorative per‐protocol collective analysis (n = 345) conducted on the placebo‐controlled, multi‐centre ABPARO trial (ClinicalTrials...
Implementation of the new classification of periodontal diseases requires careful navigation of the new case definitions and organization of the diagnostic process along rationale and easily applicable algorithms. The aim of this report was to describe the rationale for one such approach designed for clinical practice and education.
The authors developed empiric decision‐making...
Aim of this study was to investigate the influence of an anti‐inflammatory diet on different parameters in patients with gingivitis.
Materials and Methods
Thirty patients were randomly allocated to an experimental and a control group stratified by their plaque values. The experimental group had to change to a diet low in processed carbohydrates and animal proteins, and rich in omega‐3 fatty...
Noninvasive electrocardiographic mapping of ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ablation using stereotactic radiotherapy was recently reported. This strategy does not directly evaluate the critical diastolic components and assumes that the epicardial exit site of VT subtends closely over the endocardial mid‐diastolic isthmus.
To determine if the epicardial exit site of VT spatially...
Flowering plants are highly sensitive to heat stress during reproductive phase, which covers development from floral initiation to seed maturity. The objectives of this study were to diagnose high temperature effects on pollen production and morphology, production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in pollen grains and ovules in pea cultivar “CDC Golden.” This study also investigated timing and duration...
