The effect of internal roughness and bonding on the fracture resistance and structural reliability of lithium disilicate ceramic

Lithium disilicate is a synthetic glass ceramic that is being used in dentistry for many years to restore decayed or worn down teeth. It is a popular restoration material as it results in good esthetic and mechanical properties [1,2]. Additionally it present two major advantages: (1) allow the manufacturing of monolithic restorations, that do not require a veneering layer which is known to be susceptible to chipping [3,4], and (2) that a good adhesion to dental tissues can be established [5,6]. In comparison to earlier glass ceramics like feltspathic and leucite reinforced it has a higher flexural strength [7,8], and compared to oxide ceramics like zirconia it has better optical properties.

CONCLUSION: This case report demonstrates the satisfactory control of Sjogren's syndrome using oral polyvalent immunoglobulins with vitamin D3. In contrast to treatment options involving antimalarial drugs and methotrexate, there are no safety issues in patients tolerant to milk products.

CONCLUSION: The results suggest that the combination of lapatinib plus capecitabine can improve PFS and OS in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer that has progressed on trastuzumab. However, it appears that trastuzumab emtansine provides better treatment outcomes in this context.

Conclusion: Long-acting somatostatin analogues are effective in glycemic control of patients with CHI. However, in 37% of all patients increased liver enzymes were observed. It is important to monitor liver function in all patients receiving long-acting somatostatin analogue therapy.Horm Res Paediatr

Conclusion: The overall melanoma detection rate in our free Skin Cancer Screening Program is comparable to those in European public activities. The costs of free screening programs compare favorably with the prevented potential therapeutic costs of late-stage melanoma. The low response rate of screenees agreeing to be followed up limits conclusions of this study.Dermatology
