Radiographic examination is an essential aspect of diagnosis and treatment planning in dental practice.In recent years, advancements in diagnostic, surgical and restorative techniques have reached new levels.The Prosthodontist has to therefore be up-to-date with advancing diagnostic and treatment procedures and technology for successful treatment and for the benefits of the patient.Aim of this book is to study the various diagnostic modalities available and can be used while diagnosis and treatment planning to achieve long term success.

Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2A

Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2A

Автор:

ABSTRACT Limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) is a heterogeneous genetically determined group of skeletal muscle disorders. Among the 24 reported subtypes of LGMD, limb- girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A (LGMD2A) is caused by mutations in the calpain 3 (CAPN3) gene. In Pakistan, consanguineous marriages are common due to social, ethnic and traditional customs which is a leading cause of calpainopathy. In the present study, two families (A, B) showing clinically distinct autosomal recessive limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A were evaluated genetically. Any other abnormality was not observed in both families. Technique of homozygosity mapping was used to track the gene responsible for autosomal recessive LGMD2A in both families. In homozygosity mapping with polymorphic microsatellite markers, linkage in family A and B with LGMD2A was established to CAPN3 gene on chromosome 15q15.1-q21.1. Subsequently, sequence analysis of all 24 exons of CAPN3 was performed but no disease causing DNA sequence variant was found in these exons suggesting the presence of mutation in the regulatory sequences or any other genes present in this region.

Standard Institutes & Certification Agencies

Standard Institutes & Certification Agencies

Автор:

Standard institutes and certification agencies are very important for the harmonious development of standardization, quality certification and to provide new thrust to standardization and quality control of the products which are manufactured in the country. Standards are powerful tool for organizations of all sizes, supporting innovation and increasing productivity. Standards allow company to attract and assure customers, demonstrate market leadership, create competitive advantage, develop and maintain best practice. Standards are powerful marketing tools and respected badge of quality. For that standard institutes and certification agencies are required to make and maintain the standards for all products. All the countries have laid down their own standards for all type of products and their own certification agencies are established like ISI, BSS, ISO, ASTM International etc. Drugs and related products must be regulated. For their regulation, regulatory agencies like USFDA, UKMHRA, TGA, WHO etc. are established.

Спирт лечит. Сердце и сосуды, ушибы и ссадины, атеросклероз и нервы, обморожения и похмелье

Спирт лечит. Сердце и сосуды, ушибы и ссадины, атеросклероз и нервы, обморожения и похмелье

Автор: Дмитрий Макунин

Знаете ли вы, что слово «спирт» происходит от слова «спирит» — «дух»? Спирт — это дух вина. Его изобрели алхимики. И сегодня, как и 1000 лет назад, им можно и нужно лечиться. Спирт за три применения избавит вас от герпеса, не даст появиться раздражению после бритья и развиться фурункулам на коже. Его можно применять при стенокардии, делать примочки при ожогах и даже лечить им сердце. Главное — четко знать, что можно делать, а что нельзя.

Advances in periodontal regeneration

Advances in periodontal regeneration

Автор:

Healing of periodontal wounds is a more complex process. Melcher established that if PDL cells are given preference, regeneration may consistently occur. Current regenerative therapies include bone grafts, allogenic and xenograft bone matrix, root conditioning agents and cell-occlusive barrier membranes and, most recently, recombinant growth/differentiation factors. Bone grafts, though considered “gold standard”, bone regeneration after grafting is quite variable. Growth/differentiation factors in spite of their promise of revolutionizing field of bone regeneration must be used at very high concentrations to be effective and also they do not induce long-term changes in the diseased tissue. The novel approach would include changes at a genetic level to modify the disease process for long-term beneficial effects of regenerative molecules. 21st century appears to represent a time in history when there is a convergence between clinical dentistry and medicine, human genetics, developmental and molecular biology, biotechnology, bioengineering and bioinformatics, resulting in emergence of novel regenerative therapeutic approaches viz. nanotechnology, gene therapy, RNAi & stem cells.

Иммунитет при обструктивных болезнях легких и сахарном диабете 2 типа

Иммунитет при обструктивных болезнях легких и сахарном диабете 2 типа

Автор:

В настоящее время особый интерес вызывает проблема сочетанной патологии. Обструктивные заболевания легких, такие как ХОБЛ и бронхиальная астма, а также сахарный диабет 2 типа широко распространены во всем мире, экономический ущерб от этих болезней неуклонно растет. Наличие различных патогенетических факторов усугубляет течение и осложняет возможности терапии как диабета, так и патологии дыхательной системы. Неблагоприятное течение обструктивных заболеваний легких определяется нарушениями иммуннитета, что усугубляется изменениями иммунного ответа при сопутствующем сахарном диабете 2 типа. Иммунокомпетентные клетки участвуют в хроническом воспалении при ХОБЛ и бронхиальной астме. На поверхности клеток представлены мембранные дифференцировочные антигены, растворимые формы которых участвуют в регуляции иммунного ответа. Изучение молекулярных механизмов иммунитета у больных сочетанной патологией недостаточно изучено в настоящее время. Наиболее актуальным представляется комплексное изучение различных факторов патогенеза обструктивных заболеваний легких при сочетании их с диабетом, определение их клинической значимости, выявление тактики лечения пациентов с сочетанной патологией.

Management & Policies -ARV Therapy for Children under 5 years in Kenya

Management & Policies -ARV Therapy for Children under 5 years in Kenya

Автор:

According to KDHS (2003) the mortality of under five years children in Kenya continued to increase from 112/1000 in1998 and 115/1000 in 2003. This is attributed to URTI, diarrhea, measles, malaria, malnutrition, HIV/AIDS and their combinations. Access to care is hampered by prevalence of costly specialized services as the poor are left with fewer affordable care options. In 2006, UNAIDS noted that the Kenya ARV Access Program would have several challenges to the universal access related to prevention, treatment, care and support, inefficient commodity management, human resources and inadequate monitoring and evaluation strategies. Many barriers remain to scaling up HIV prevention, treatment and management of children in RPCs. Training of practitioners in the skills required to care for this category of children with HIV infection is necessary to increase the number receiving ART. Lack of availability of appropriate ARV drug formulation that is easily usable and inexpensive is a major impediment to optimal care for children with HIV. The purpose of this study was to investigate the management, financing, insurance and economic policies of ART for these children in Nyanza Region.
