Publication date: Available online 21 February 2019Source: The Saudi Dental JournalAuthor(s): Muneera Abdulaziz AlHassan, Ahmed Fathi AlOmar, Rana Saud AlShagroudAbstractBackgroundSalivary glands swellings are frequently encountered in the dental clinic. Their causes include but not limited to neoplasm, infection, stone, and inflammation. Sublingual salivary gland enlargements are commonly caused by ranula, while neoplasms rarely occur and if found they tend to be malignant. Another cause is idiopathic hyperplasia of the sublingual gland (IHSG), which is characterized as asymptomatic swelling of unknown cause, protrude fro...

This study concerns the perceived roughness of 3D printed material samples (print process: fused deposition modelling, or FDM), generated across changes in print speed, build angle, and layer height. Physical sample surface roughness parameters Ra and Rq were first obtained via optical scanning. Next, using a custom-designed apparatus, surface roughness perception was assessed via a psychophysical procedure that identified the just noticeable difference in roughness through the sense of touch alone. By comparing both data sets, this study concludes that for FDM-printed materials, objective surface roughness parameters (Ra,...

Authors: Dalvadi H, Parmar K, Yadav S Abstract Bicalutamide (BCT), an anticancer drug, suffers from dissolution rate limited bioavailability and poor micromeritic properties. Spherical crystallization involves formation of spherical agglomerates with enhanced dissolution properties, obviating the need of further granulation process. The present investigation was focused on spherical agglomeration of BCT by quasi emulsion solvent diffusion method. All the responses were subjected to principal component analysis to scrutinize the critical attributes. Further for optimization, X1; influence of phase ratio, X2; amount ...

Idayu Zahid, Thamil Selvi Velayutham, Mohamad Suffian Mohamad Annuar, Rauzah HashimAbstractThe sugar anomeric effect on the thermotropic phase transition of stearyl glucoside was investigated. Standard analysis to study the phase transition through differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and optical polarizing microscopy (OPM) was applied. In addition, small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SWAXS) and impedance spectroscopy (IS) were used to elucidate the phase structural information and the dielectri...
