Pediatric Dentists' Treatment Planning Decisions for Class II Carious Lesions in Primary Molars
Authors: Saber H, Rajah GB, Seraji-Bozorgzad N, Nasiriavanaki M Abstract Intravascular imaging has significantly contributed to the advancement of interventional cardiology. Intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography have facilitated decision-making and interventional strategies in management of coronary artery lesions. Yet, applications of these modalities are limited in cerebrovascular practice. With the momentum in advancement of neuroendovascular interventions and techniques for treatment of strokes, cerebrovascular atherosclerotic diseases, aneurysms and vascular malformations, there is a need f...
DISCUSSION: Taken together, use of DEX associated with cell and biodegradable membrane could improve functional and histomorphological properties of the sciatic nerve after injury. PMID: 30246623 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
DISCUSSION: Our data suggest that OPN is essential for proper astrocytic generation in vitro culture prepared from mouse cerebral cortex. OPN is indispensable for astrocyte activation in the mouse brain injury model and in LPS stimulated primary culture. ABBREVIATIONS: AQP4: aquaporin 4; BBB: blood brain barrier; BrdU: bromo-deoxy uridine; CNS: central nervous system; GFAP: glial fibllirary acidic protein; IgG: immunoglobulin G; LPS: lipopolysaccharide; OPN: osteopontin; OPN/KO: osteopontin-deficient; TN-C: tenascin-C.

We all perk up and pay attention when we overhear our name in a conversation. Four-year-old Florence started hearing hers everywhere, including on the TV.
In this study, we propose a novel framework for super-resolution, where the high-frequency components are theoretically restored with respect to the frequency fidelities. This framework helps to introduce multiple simultaneous regularizers in both signal and frequency domains. Furthermore, we propose a new super-resolution model where frequency fidelity, low-rank (LR) prior, low total variation (TV) prior, and boundary prior are considered at once. The proposed method is formulated as a convex optimization problem which can be solved by the alternating direction method of multipliers. The proposed method is the generalized...
A hospital operator now owned by Community Health Systems Inc will pay more than $260 million to resolve claims it defrauded government health care programs and paid doctors kickbacks for patient referrals, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday.
While the impact of the massive bombing raids during World War II left deep and obvious scars on the land, a new study suggests that the shockwaves reached the edge of space as well. As a result, those shockwaves actually weakened Earth's upper atmosphere, called the ionosphere.
Authors: Leung AK, Hon KL, Leong KF, Sergi CM Abstract Measles (rubeola) is a highly contagious vaccine-preventable disease caused by the measles virus-a virus of the Paramyxoviridae family. The illness typically begins with fever, runny nose, cough, and pathognomonic enanthem (Koplik spots) followed by a characteristic erythematous, maculopapular rash. The rash classically begins on the face and becomes more confluent as it spreads cephalocaudally. Laboratory confirmation of measles virus infection can be based on a positive serological test for measles-specific immunoglobulin M antibody, a four-fold or greater in...
