Authors: Wu M, Xu K, Xie Y, Yan F, Deng Z, Lei J, Cai L Abstract BACKGROUND Osteoblastoma is a rare, benign, osteolytic neoplasm commonly found in the spine in early adulthood. Here, we review the clinical characteristics, radiographic findings, and surgical management of patients with spinal osteoblastoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirteen patients with osteoblastoma who underwent surgery at our institute from June 2008 to November 2017 were enrolled in this study. The American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) impairment scale was used to assess neurological function. All patients were treated with either total excisi...

Authors: Curtis JR, Brahe CH, Østergaard M, Hetland ML, Hambardzumyan K, Saevarsdottir S, Wang X, Flake DD, Sasso EH, Huizinga TW Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare the multi-biomarker disease activity (MBDA) score with the DAS28-CRP and CRP for predicting risk of radiographic progression in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. METHODS: Published studies of the MBDA score and radiographic progression with ≥100 patients per cohort were evaluated. Rates of radiographic progression over 1 year were determined across the low/moderate/high categories for MBDA score (low/moderate/high: 44), DAS28-CRP (low/modera...

This study reports anti-arthritic potential of opuntioside-I opuntiol, and its gold and silver nanoparticles (NPs) against Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA)-induced arthritic rats. The mechanistic studies were performed targeting TLRs (TLR-2 and TLR-4) and cytokines (IL-1β and TNF-α) expressions to validate their anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulatory response.The nano-formulations were successfully characterized employing Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) analysis. Opuntiol and opuntioside (OP and OPG: 10, 50 and 100 mg/kg) and opuntiol-coated silver and gold NPs (OP-...

Conclusions The salivary concentration of TNF- α was increased in individuals with worse periodontal and peri-implant clinical condition and in those with a higher incidence of peri-implantitis, especially in the GNTP group. Longitudinal studies in larger populations are needed to confirm these findings and elucidate the role of this biomarker in peri-implant disease.

Philips (NYSE:PHG) said yesterday that it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its DigitalDiagnost C90 digital radiography system. The Amsterdam-based company said that the DigitalDiagnost C90 includes a live camera image displayed directly at the tube head to provide a clear view of the anatomical area being scanned during positioning. The newly cleared system also incorporates Philips Eleva user interface intended to improve workflows, the company said. “In today’s world of value-based care, healthcare organizations are investing in imaging solutions that help them achieve the quadruple aim: improved outcomes, e...

This study shows that the cavus fibula is truly more posterior in patients with high arches. (Journal of Surgical Orthopaedic Advances 27(4):255-260, 2018). PMID: 30777822 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Higher cCI was associated with greater MBL of implant-supported fixed dental prostheses in short dental implants placed in the posterior mandible, while implant characteristics, follow-up, and site were not associated with MBL. However, the increase of 0.28 mm of MBL in patients with a cCI ≥ 2 may be not clinically relevant. PMID: 30779823 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
