Use of high frequency ultrasonography in dermatology departments in Spain.

CONCLUSIONS: The use of HFUS in usual practice is increasing, especially among younger dermatologists. This procedure is effective both for confirming and changing diagnosis, as well as for therapy decision making and follow-up. It is also worth remarking that a very high degree of patient satisfaction was recorded. The descriptive results reported in this study support the use of ultrasonography techniques and further reinforce their use in Dermatology. PMID: 27267187 [PubMed - in process]

Madhubala, Arivalagan Pugazhendhi, Kalaivani ThirunavukarasuAbstractNanoparticles (NPs) can interact with the immune system in several ways, which can either enhance or suppress the functions, depending on their characteristics and composition. Though widely used in different biomedical applications, not much is known about the immunomodulatory effects of NPs on human cell lines. In this work, the immunomodulatory effects of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles on human monocytic leukemia (THP-1) and human mast (HMC-1) cell lines we...

In this research, alginate was used as supporting material of immobilized beads to maintain high degradation efficiency. Applying CaCl2 freeze drying and acidic solutions led to the reusability of the beads. Ca-alginate beads can be reused for more than 21 cycles of repeated CaCl2 freeze drying and 16 cycles of t...

FekriavalAbstractVarious cadmium telluride (CdTe) structures of nanorods, nanowalls and nanoclusters are successfully prepared via radio frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering technique by varying the experimental parameters. The results show that the physical properties of the films are strongly influenced by the experimental parameters. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) is used to study the morphological evolution of the CdTe nanostructures grown by applyin...

In conclusion, enchondroma growth was a rare event and typically occurred at two years follow-up in our series. Given the low risk for malignant transformation, we propose surveillance with plain radiographic follow-up for stable enchondromas every 3-6 months for the first year and then annually for at least three years of total follow-up. The most significant costs savings can be made by limiting MRI imaging in the absence of clinical or radiographic concern. Additional studies are needed to determine the long-term risk of growth or declaration of chondrosarcoma.Level of Evidence: IV. PMID: 31413693 [PubMed - in process]

The objective was to assess the effect of fissure depth and enamel surface preparation protocols on penetration of resin-based, giomer and glass-ionomer fissure sealants.Materials and Methods: Ninety extracted third molars were assigned into three groups according to the material used. All three groups were subsequently divided depending on tooth preparation: no pretreatment or surface preparation with 10% polyacrylic acid, 37% phosphoric acid, or self-etching adhesive. In addition, Er,Cr:YSGG laser or air abrasion were employed in all subgroups. The penetration was evaluated using scanning electron microscopy.Results: The...

Dionysopoulos, Dimitrios / Tolidis, Kosmas / Sfeikos, ThrasyvoulosPage 357 - 364Purpose: The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect of two preventive clinical treatments on bovine enamel susceptibility after erosive challenge induced by a soft drink.Materials and Methods: Eighteen sound bovine incisors were used for this study. Three experimental groups were assigned as follows: Group 1 was the control group; Group 2 specimens received a CPP-ACPF paste treatment; and Group 3 specimens received a treatment with a product containing 1% nano-hydroxyapatite and 455 ppmF-. The specimens were submitted to eros...

Conclusion: Fluoride varnishes with or without additives are effective in remineralisation of early enamel lesions. Glass ionomer-based fluoride varnish results in better remineralisation than xylitol coated calcium phosphate containing fluoride varnish and 5% sodium fluoride varnish.

Discussion PSMA PET-CT imaging may have a substantial impact on clinical management in prostate cancer patients at the time of initial staging or with biochemical failure; yet this modality does not appear useful in the management of patients with known metastatic disease.
