The use of only enamel matrix derivative allows outstanding regeneration results in periodontal intrabony defect treatment: a retrospective study. J Biol Regul Homeost Agents. 2019 Mar 25;33(2) Authors: Bertoldi C, Ferrari M, Giannetti L Abstract Periodontal tissue regeneration depends on several biological, homeostatic and regulative variables that directly induce the clinical features. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical results obtained using the enamel matrix derivative peptide (EMP) compared to the less manageable association of EMP and bovine bone xenographic (BPBM) in the treatment of deep intraosseous defects. Ten healthy patients, suffering from moderate or severe chronic periodontitis, having at least two deep and narrow intrabony defects in the same dental arch and needing surgical treatment, were selected. The same patient was treated with the two different materials: EMP -TG1 in one defect and the association-TG2 in the other. Immediately before surgery (T0) and 12-month after (T2) the probing depth (PD) and gingival recession (GR) were registered at the experimental sites. No statistically significant differences were shown between TG1 and TG2 at T0 nor at T1 in term of PD and GR, while a statistically significant PD decrease was found both in TG1 and TG2 between T0 and T1 (p less than 0.05). GR increase resulted statistically significant in TG1 (p less than 0.05) but not in TG2 between T0 and T1 (p≥0.05). In this split-mouth...

Authors: Horton R, Lucassen A Abstract Introduction: Clinical practice and research are traditionally seen as distinct activities that are governed by different principles and processes. Innovative technologies such as genomic testing challenge this model, involving many activities that cannot be easily categorized as purely research, or purely clinical care. Areas covered: We discuss the interdependence of research and clinical practice in the context of genomics, for example, when determining the significance of rare genetic variants, or diagnosing newly described rare diseases. We highlight the potential of the ...

CONCLUSIONS: The rate of incidental DT during decompression for LSS with and without fusion in ≥3 levels was associated with BMI and previous surgery at the same spinal level. Invasivness (SII) is valid rather for variables proper to surgery such as bledding and Op-time but no with incidence for DT and subsequent CSF-leackage.

Authors: Furst T, Hoffman H, Chin LS Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) literature indicates that younger patients benefit from improved survival, however, this benefit is not shared by those 70+ years of age. The purpose of this study is to examine mortality trends in PCNSL patients 70+ years of age to better understand why improved prognosis has not yet reached this rapidly growing population subset. METHODS: 2075 cases (1973-2012, age at diagnosis 70+ years) within the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database were included in Kaplan-Meier and multiv...
