Authors: Filipe R, Aguiar P Abstract INTRODUCTION: A dental voucher was created to facilitate the access to oral health care, however the use of these vouchers, by students aged 7, 10 and 13 with dental caries from state schools within the geodemographic area covered by the Community Health Center Group of Western Lisbon and Oeiras, had a low uptake (23%, school year 2014/2015) The aim of this study was to examine the factors associated with this non-use. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A case-control study was carried out involving 270 students (135 cases and 135 controls) from 35 state schools who agreed to participate...

In this study, we evaluated the activity of ClyR, a well-known chimeric lysin with extended streptococcal host range, against common Gram-positive oral microbes and its anticaries efficacy in rat models. ClyR demonstrated high lytic activity against S. mutans MT8148 and S. sobrinus ATCC6715, with minor activity against Streptococcus sanguinis, Streptococcus oralis, and Streptococcus salivarius, which are considered as harmless commensal oral bacteria. Confocal laser scanning microscopy showed that the number of viable cells in 72-h aged S. mutans and S. sobrinus biofilms are significantly (p < 0.05) decreased after ...

Conclusion: There was a strong correlation between dermatoglyphic patterns (especially ulnar loops, whorls and total ridge count), dental caries and S. mutans level.

While watching the morning news (you know, the tidbits of news aired between direct-to-consumer drug ads), a commercial came on claiming that a new mouthwash kills 99.9% of all bacteria in the mouth, good-looking young people gazing at each other with inviting smiles. Now why would you do that? Why would you wipe clean a bodily orifice that is meant to be teeming with microorganisms? The human gastrointestinal tract, as well as the airway, vagina, skin, and other body parts, are all meant to be colonized with microorganisms. It represents an important symbiotic relationship: we support their health and they support ours. ...

  In the first Wheat Belly book, I recounted the history of wheat from its wild-growing 14-chromosome einkorn ancestor, to the 28-chromosome emmer of Biblical times, to 42-chromosome spelt and other Triticum species, and finally to high-yield semi-dwarf strains created by agricultural scientists in the 1960s now comprises 99% of all wheat products sold. The quantity of additional changes introduced since are many, including selection of strains enriched in wheat germ agglutinin and phytates for their pest-resistant properties (while increasing human toxicity), gliadin and glutenin for desirable baking characteristics ...

Pachyonychia congenita (PC) is a cutaneous disorder caused by a mutation in the KRT6A, KRT6B, KRT6C, KRT16 or KRT17 genes that encode a subset of epithelial keratins. The main features of the disease are painful palmoplantar keratoderma and variable nail dystrophy. In a recent study, we reported that these keratins are incorporated into mature enamel. Moreover, genetic association study showed that common polymorphisms in KRT6A, KRT6B and KRT6C are associated with increased susceptibility to tooth decay.
