Treatment of adult Class II division 2 patient with metal hypersensitivity.
Treatment of adult Class II division 2 patient with metal hypersensitivity. Angle Orthod. 2014 Apr 15; Authors: Haraguchi S, Yamashiro T Abstract This case report describes the orthodontic treatment of an adult female with an Angle Class II division 2 malocclusion with a severe deep bite and a congenitally missing lower incisor. The use of available orthodontic devices and materials was limited because the patient had metal allergies. Following a careful examination and case analysis, the preadjusted edgewise appliances and the microscrew implants were placed after the upper first premolars were extracted. After active treatment, a good facial profile and occlusion were achieved. These results have been maintained for 2 years following completion of the active treatment.

BackgroundKetotifen is a second ‐generation noncompetitive H1‐antihistamine and mast‐cell stabilizer. It is commonly used to treat or prevent allergic conjunctivitis, asthma, chronic urticaria, anaphylaxis, mast‐cell, and other allergic‐type disorders.

Eravacycline (ERV), formerly known as TP ‐434, is a novel tetracycline (TET) antibiotic that exhibits in vitro activity against various gram‐positive, gram‐negative aerobic and anaerobic pathogens, including those exhibiting TET‐specific acquired resistance mechanisms. Similar to other TETs, it inhibits protein synthesis through bi nding to the 30S ribosomal subunit. Eravacycline was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August 2018 for the treatment of complicated intraabdominal infections (cIAIs) in adults following the Investigating Gram‐Negative Infections Treated with Eravacycli...
