CONCLUSIONS:: Dose increase for Zirconia was noted to be maximum while PEEK implant dose increase was minimum among the whole dental implant materials studied. This study revealed that the Eclipse TPS PBC algorithm could not accurately estimate the backscatter radiation from dental implant materials. PMID: 30663343 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Tests of large airway and peripheral zone lung function performed disparately as predictors of poor control in a sample of children enriched in severe asthma. Further studies in a larger sample with more diverse phenotypic features are necessary to validate this preliminary conclusion. PMID: 30663912 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Individuals with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are at increased risk for pediatric brain tumors (PBTs), especially optic gliomas; however, factors influencing their development are largely unknown. Extensive research suggests that allergic conditions protect against brain tumors, particularly gliomas in individuals without NF1. In this large cross-sectional study, we employed two different data sources to evaluate evidence for the hypothesis that allergic conditions (allergies, asthma, and eczema) may protect against PBT development in individuals with NF1. We used self- and parent/legal guardian reporte...
