Serum Analysis in Patients with Temporomandibular Disorders: A Controlled Cross-Sectional Study in Norway.

Serum Analysis in Patients with Temporomandibular Disorders: A Controlled Cross-Sectional Study in Norway. Pain Res Manag. 2019;2019:1360725 Authors: Staniszewski K, Lygre H, Berge T, Rosén A Abstract Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is characterized by pain and dysfunction in the temporomandibular join (TMJ) and the masticatory apparatus. Associations with autoimmune diseases, inflammatory conditions, and nutrition deficiencies have been reported in previous studies of TMD patients. To evaluate essential proteins, hormones, electrolytes, and vitamins in serum from TMD patients, a standard blood sample analysis was performed in 60 TMD patients and 60 healthy controls matched for age and gender, retrieving 19 different analyses. We found that TMD patients had significantly higher values of hemoglobin (p=0.036), cobalamin (p=0.023), albumin (p=0.005), parathyroid hormone (PTH) (p=0.038), and vitamin D (p=0.005), and significantly lower values of creatinine (p=0.006) and potassium (p=0.011), compared to controls. In the TMD group, most of the determinants had a wider range, and several subjects, compared to the control group, had values outside the normal reference area. However, most of the TMD patients and controls had values within normal biological range. Our findings could not associate any severe systemic disease, malnutrition, or systemic inflammation with the TMD. Results from our study suggest that serum analyses should neither be used as a ...

Authors: Li J, Lo K, Shen G, Feng YQ, Huang YQ Abstract Objectives: The relationship between selenium and all-cause mortality has been inconsistent from observational studies and clinical trials. The present study aimed to reveal the relationship between serum selenium and all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality and the potential gender differences.Methods: All participants were recruited from the 1999-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). Participants with available serum selenium data were followed up until 31 December 2015. Cox proportional hazards models were performed to ...

AbstractDiseases of the foot and ankle are common but relatively difficult to diagnose because of the complexity of the anatomy and the frequent occurrence of multiple diseases at the same time. For these reasons, management of chronic foot pain is often clinically challenging. MRI is the imaging modality of choice in many types of diseases causing chronic foot pain, due to high resolution and excellent soft tissue contrast. However, in the postoperative state, the use of MRI can be limited by artifact from metallic devices, and it may be difficult to confirm whether the pathology detected on the MRI is the actual cause of...

ConclusionsThere were no significant differences between the BMI and the FMI for predicting the degree of obesity. Likewise, there were no significant differences between them for the prediction of metabolic alterations.

AbstractKetone bodies (KB) provide an alternative energy source and uniquely modulate substrate metabolism during endurance exercise. Nutritional ketosis (blood KBs  >  0.5 mM) can be achieved within minutes via exogenous ketone supplementation or days-to-weeks via conforming to a very low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet (KD). In contrast to short-term (  3 weeks) leads to a state of keto-adaptation. However, despite elevating blood KBs to similar concentrations, exogenous ketone supplementation and keto-adaptation are not similar metabolic states as they elicit diverse and distinct effects o...

CONCLUSIONS: Findings from our study show that respiratory diseases, characterizing a group of patients with pandas, are the direct consequences of the malformed or hypertrophic condition and suggesting in these conditions surgical therapy as an approaching tool.

Authors: Crincoli V, Anelli MG, Quercia E, Piancino MG, Di Comite M Abstract Aims: Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) represent a heterogeneous group of inflammatory or degenerative diseases of the stomatognatic system, with algic and/or dysfunctional clinical features involving temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and related masticatory muscles. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune polyarthritis characterized by the chronic inflammation of synovial joints and oral implications such as hyposalivation, difficulty in swallowing and phoning, feeling of burning mouth, increased thirst, loss of taste or unpleasant taste ...

This observational case-control study attempted to identify factors associated with TMJD development, particularly inflammation. The study participants were patients treated at Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. The cases were patients who received a diagnosis of TMJD, chronic closed lock, or painful clicking and were treated surgically dur...
