Favorable residual stress induction by resin-cementation on dental porcelain

In this study we explore whether shrinkage stresses generated on photo-polymerisation of the resin-cement are sufficient to induce ceramic surface defect stabilization, and we quantify the transient nature of the induced stresses.

Authors: Yuasa-Shibasaki E, Ishii S, Matsumoto S, Tomaru T, Horiguchi K, Osaki A, Ozawa A, Shibusawa N, Satoh T, Yamada M Abstract A 39-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with symptoms of general fatigue, nausea, and vomiting that appeared three months after she stopped seven years of medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) medication for endometrial stromal sarcoma. Laboratory tests demonstrated moderate hypercalcemia. Several tests demonstrated that she was suffering from adrenal insufficiency. Glucocorticoid supplementation decreased her calcium level to a normal range, indicating that hypercalcemia was induc...

The optimal glucocorticoid replacement ...

Rational: Adrenal insufficiency/crisis (AI/AC) after cessation of corticosteroids (CS)could be non-specific and difficult to diagnose. Replacement therapy with physiological dose of hydrocortisone could be life saving in period of stress. Analysis for possible AI was done in those with unexplained fatigue and/or acute syncope after cessation of CS treatment in asthma.Methods: All participants underwent diurnal variation test, 24hour urinary cortisol measuremnt test and rapid ACTH test after discontinuation of CS for 3days. Firstly, high risk group with higher/longer use of CS therapy (N=13, group A) and low risk group with...

Marce Doubell, Paul B. C. Grant, Nanike Esterhuizen, Corinna S. Bazelet, Pia Addison, and John S. Terblanche Katydids produce acoustic signals via stridulation, which they use to attract conspecific females for mating. However, direct estimates of the metabolic costs of calling to date have produced diverse cost estimates and are limited to only a handful of insect species. Therefore, in this study, we investigated the metabolic cost of calling in an unstudied sub-Saharan katydid, Plangia graminea. Using wild-caught animals, we measured katydid metabolic rate using standard flow-through respirometry while simultaneously r...

ConclusionAlthough the reported half‐life of insulin degludec in the body is ~25 h when administered in standard doses (0.4–0.8 units/kg), no study has investigated its half‐life after overdose. In the present case, the half‐life of insulin degludec was ~1.6 times longer than that observed with standard doses, probably leading to long‐lasting hypoglycaemia. Physicians should be aware of the possibility of unexpected long‐lasting severe hypoglycaemia resulting from insulin degludec overdose.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
