[In Process Citation]. Swiss Dent J. 2015;125(10):1099-104 Authors: Liakoni E, Liechti ME Abstract «Laughing gas» (nitrous oxide N2O) has analgesic and sedative properties and is commonly used in dentistry because of its many advantages (ease of use, dose titration, rapid onset, lack of prolonged effects, both analgetic and anxiolytic effects). However, nitrous oxide may cause vitamin B12 deficiency, has abuse liability, and occupational exposure has been associated with infertility, spontaneous abortion, blood dyscrasias, and neurologic deficits. Scavenger systems are recommended to minimize exposure and personnel should be informed about the potential risks. PMID: 26470605 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Formulations containing antioxidant vitamins, R-alpha lipoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, administered for 6 consecutive months, counteracted the oxidative stress by further stabilising the morphological/functional parameters of both the ocular surface and the glaucoma, without presenting with adverse effects or intolerances.

Conclusions: Antioxidants that are not specifically targeted to mitochondria fail to accumulate in significant amounts in critical sites of mitochondrial ROS production and may eventually interfere with the ensuing physiological signaling. Mitochondria-targeted antioxidants are more effective, but are expected to interfere with the mitochondrial ROS-dependent physiologic signaling. AA promotes multiple beneficial effects in mitochondria. The complex regulation of vitamin C uptake in these organelles likely contributes to its versatile antioxidant response, thereby providing a central role to the vitamin for adequate contro...
Molecular cytogenetic characterization of an isodicentric Yq and a neocentric isochromosome Yp in an azoospermic male. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Feb;21(2):918-926 Authors: Jiang Y, Yue F, Wang R, Zhang H, Li L, Li L, Li S, Liu R Abstract Isodicentric Y chromosomes are considered one of the most common structural abnormalities of the Y chromosome. Neocentric marker chromosomes, with neocentromeres, have drawn increasing attention in recent years. The present study reported an azoospermic male with a neocentric isochromosome Yp, neo(Yp), and an isodicentric Yq, idic(Yq). The ka...
ConclusionsThe live birth among recipients of donated oocytes does not differ depending on the mode of treatment for endogenous LH suppression administered to the oocyte donors (OD) during controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) .This information is reassuring and of great interest for those teams using this kind of protocols, although deserves further research.
VITAMIN B12 is crucial nutrient that helps maintain healthy blood and nerve cells. When there is a lack of it circulating inside the body, abnormally large red blood cells are formed that can't function properly. Eventually, this will lead to health complications - what are the signs you're deficient in vitamin B12?
DiscussionAlthough Retendo® (mucopolygen complex) is commonly used in muscle and tendon diseases, its effect mechanism is not definitely known. But in the light of the findings we acquired in our study, we detected that Retendo® (mucopolygen complex) applied after achilles tendon ruptures positively effected collagen sequencing during recovery in histological terms but didn't have a significant effect on the mean load achilles tendon can tolerate before rupturing.

Publication date: Available online 24 January 2020Source: Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty AcidsAuthor(s): Erika Castaño-Moreno, Valeska Castillo, Reyna Penailillo, Miguel N. Llanos, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Ana María RoncoAbstractMicronutrients (folates and vitamin B12) and long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) are linked through the one carbon cycle. We studied the effects of pre and postnatal high FA/low B12 diets (HFLB12) on hepatic fatty acid metabolism. Pregnant C57BL/6 mice were divided in two groups: control (2mg folic acid: FA/25 µg vitamin B12/Kg food) and HFLB12 diets (...
