Authors: Tsai YF, Hsu LH, Wu CC, Cai WH, Yang KC, Fan FY Abstract Sintered dicalcium pyrophosphate (SDCP), a synthetic pyrophosphate analog, has shown potential for the management of osteoporosis. The long-term oral toxicity and anti-osteoporotic effect of SDCP in a postmenopausal osteoporosis rat model were evaluated in this study. SDCP was orally administered to bilateral ovariectomized (OVX) Wistar rats at a dose of 0.75 mg/kg daily for 24 weeks following by 2 weeks of observation. There were no abnormal findings in clinical signs of toxicity, food consumption, body weight, blood examination, necr...

HIGH blood pressure can be reduced by making diet changes. Phasing out products which raise blood pressure such as salty foods and canned soups, while adding foods and drinks which reduce it, such as bananas, can help reduce blood pressure. This tropical drink could help reduce blood pressure.

Authors: Nghiem-Rao TH, Patel SB Abstract The cholesterol molecule is at the center of the pathophysiology of many vascular diseases. Whole-body cholesterol pools are maintained by a balance of endogenous synthesis, dietary absorption and elimination from our bodies. While the cellular aspects of cholesterol metabolism received significant impetus from the seminal work of Goldstein and Brown investigating LDL receptor trafficking, how dietary cholesterol was absorbed and eliminated was relatively neglected. The identification of the molecular defect a rare human disorder, Sitosterolemia, led to elucidation of a key...

We report a novel device for robust and stable microflow measurements and the study of the microvascularization. Based on microfluidics technology, the prototype features wall-less cylindrical channels of diameters ranging from as small as 147 up to 436 µm, cast in a soft silicone polymer and perfused via a microfluidic flow pressure controller. The device was assessed using flow rates from 49 to 146 µL/min, with less than 1% coefficient of variation over three minutes, corresponding to velocities of 6 to 142 mm/s. This enabled us to evaluate and confirm the reliability of the Superb Microvascular Imaging Doppl...

Authors: Bettoni J, Pagé G, Salsac AV, Constans JM, Testelin S, Devauchelle B, Balédent O, Dakpé S Abstract Owing to the lack of databases of blood flow distributions in the external carotid branches, surgeons currently rely on per-operative imaging and on their experience to choose the recipient vessels for microsurgical facial reconstructions. But, thanks to three-dimensional phase contrast angiography (PCA) and kinematic CINE phase contrast (PC) sequences, MRI technologies have the potential to provide quantitative anatomical and hemodynamic information without injection of contrast agent. H...

CONCLUSION: Although a widely used and undoubtedly useful tool for diagnosis and surgical planning of mandibular third molar extractions, panoramic reconstruction are biased from geometric distortion that may influence surgical planning. PMID: 29916727 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The survey indicates that 90% of the respondents, Belgian dentists, make use of digital image techniques. For sharing images, GDPs mainly use methods such as printout and e-mail. The usage of calibrated monitors however is not well established yet. PMID: 29916726 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: In both machines, increasing kVp and MAR are effective in decreasing the CBCT artifacts in all their magnitude when they are pronounced. Therefore, the professionals should choose one of those options or even both considering the purpose of the CBCT imaging and radiation dose for the patient.
