Long-term, sustained feeding by Asian citrus psyllid disrupts salicylic acid homeostasis in sweet orange
Phloem-feeding insects are known to modulate the salicylic acid (SA) signaling pathway in various plant-insect interaction models. Diaphorina citri is a phloem feeding vector of the deadly phytopathogens, Candida...
ConclusionsThe OCT technique allows to evaluate the adhesion of microorganisms and porosity in reline resins.
ConclusionsNSPT had a beneficial effect on the clinical parameters of CP and on the Candida spp oral count and salivary levels of IL-6 and IL-8 in both groups, and also on the HIV-infection status.
ConclusionsChanges in oral microbiota are related to changes in the salivary pH associated with metabolic control of type 2 diabetes.
ConclusionsThis study demonstrated that the percentage of patients with dental/oral care needs in a hospital service is high and that the performance of dentist in the hospital environment is essential for the promotion, protection, and recovery of hospitalized patients’ health, reducing the risk of infection caused by opportunistic pathogens and improving the quality of life of these patients.
A 54-year-old white female patient presented with bilateral angular cheilitis and several painful ulcerated oral lesions, 11 years after kidney transplantation. The lesions affected the buccal mucosa, the soft palate, and dorsum of the tongue for 8 months. Her current immunosuppressive regimen includes mycophenolate mofetil, tacrolimus, and prednisone. Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) exfoliative cytology was positive for Candida species. An incisional biopsy was performed on the tongue lesion and the histopathologic examination revealed intense mixed inflammatory infiltrate in the connective tissue.
This study investigated the effect of nonsurgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) on the clinical and immunologic profile and oral colonization of Candida spp in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and chronic periodontitis (CP).
To determine number and species of Candida present in saliva according to the glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) values and salivary pH in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2).

Inspired by the research, we have herein proposed to synthesize copolymers of zwitterionic sulfobetaine methacrylate (SBMA) and GMA for CRL imm...
