OraCoat ® XyliMelts® Combat Tooth Erosion by Reducing Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

A Recent Study Shows that Nightly Use of Oral Adhering Discs Significantly Improves Symptoms Associated with GERDSeattle, WA (February 21, 2018) –An article about a recent clinical study, “Dental Erosion, GERD, and Salivary Stimulation,” published in theJournal of Oral&Dental Health, February2018, reports that OraCoat® XyliMelts® oral adhering discs used while sleeping reduce reflux of stomach acids, in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which causes tooth erosion. In patients with GERD, the esophagus is exposed to stomach acid long enough to cause symptoms.GERD is estimated to occur in ten to thirty percent of the population in developed countries and is known to contribute to or cause a number of medical and dental problems including heartburn (chest pain), sore throat, mucosal pathology, bruxism,and tooth erosion. The condition is also associated with sleep disturbance and can have a detrimental effect on nighttime comfort and overall quality of life. Saliva is believed to play an integral role in combatting symptoms of GERD by protecting the esophageal lining by way of diluting and neutralizing stomach acid that enters the esophagus through reflux. However, saliva production normally decreases at night and, when the body is prone, gravity no longer helps to keep the acid down.The study was conducted as a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial involving twoover-the-counter products currently on the market for use in the management of ...

TasduqAbstractIt has been widely reported that ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation is the main extrinsic etiological agent that causes skin photodamage. UV-B exposure mediated photodamage (photo-aging/photo-carcinogenesis) to human skin is caused due to several physiological events at tissue, cellular and molecular levels that lead to impairment of skin function and integrity. In the present study, we investigated the protective role of Tr...

ConclusionUreteral neuroendocrine tumors are extremely rare. Neuroendocrine markers (CD56, CgA, Syn) and epithelial markers (CKpan, CK7) are usually helpful. Grimelius special staining and electron microscopy observation can help to make a final diagnosis. Radical surgery together with postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy can improve the survival of patients. Vimentin may play a role in predicting the prognosis.

Authors: Lopez RN, Lemberg DA Abstract Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) in infancy is common, physiological and self-limiting; it is distinguished from gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) by the presence of organic complications and/or troublesome symptomatology. GORD is more common in infants with certain comorbidities, including history of prematurity, neurological impairment, repaired oesophageal atresia, repaired diaphragmatic hernia, and cystic fibrosis. The diagnosis of GORD in infants relies almost exclusively on clinical history and examination findings; the role of invasive testing and empirical trials...

ConclusionCitral is an effective analgesic in an arthritic pain model by increasing spinal 5-HT signaling and reducing spinal SAPK/JNK phosphorylation and systemic oxidative stress.Graphical abstractNeurochemical mechanisms involved in citral-induced analgesia in arthritis. (A) Complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced arthritis reduces spinal serotonin metabolism in the lumbar dorsal horn of the spinal cord ipsilateral to the injured joint, as indicated by the reduction in the spinal levels of the main metabolite of serotonin (5-HT), 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5-HIAA). Moreover, there is a reduction in glycogen synthas...

ConclusionOur results demonstrate that the topical formulation containing Copaiba oleoresin presented antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects in mice subjected to a UVB radiation and that the cream-formulation was stable for two months. Thus, use of Copaiba oleoresin is a promising strategy for the treatment of inflammatory pain associated with sunburn.Graphical abstract

This study was performed following the PRISMA guidelines. Pubmed, Web of Science and CENTRAL databases were searched for publications without date or language restrictions. Extracted outcomes included 30-day readmission rate and reasons for readmission. Pooled 30-day readmission rate was estimated from weighted individual study estimates using random-effect models. Pooled estimates for risk factors are reported as odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs).ResultsA total of eight studies were included into qualitative analysis and six (four adults, two children) into quantitative analysis. The overall readmission...

ConclusionThis study demonstrates that ZOP may exert an antihypertensive effect in the SHR model. Its possible vascular relaxation mechanisms involve nitric oxide and prostacyclin release, activation of cGMP-KATP channels, stimulation of muscarinic receptors, and transmembrane calcium channel or Ca2+ release from intracellular stores. Possible active compounds that contribute to the vasorelaxant effects are 6-gingerol, 8-gingerol and 6-shogaol.
