AbstractTo investigate the prevalence of different patterns of cemento-enamel junction (CEJ) morphology under swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). One hundred extracted human teeth were used consisting of incisors, premolars, and molars. Each sample was observed for every 500  μm circumferentially along CEJ and OCT images of the pattern were noted. Microscopic observations were done for the representative sample using confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). The OCT images exhibited four CEJ patterns: edge-to-edge (type I), exposed dentin (type II), cement...

AbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the photobiomodulation of red and green lights in the repair process of third-degree skin burns in rats through clinicopathological and immunohistochemical parameters. Sixty male Wistar rats were divided into three groups: control (CTRL) (n = 20), red LED (RED) (n = 20), and green LED (GREEN) (n = 20), with subgroups (n = 5) for each time of euthanasia (7, 14, 21, and 28 days). Daily applications in RED (λ630  ± 10 nm, 300 mW) and GREEN groups (λ520  ± ...

AbstractOsteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic joint disease that leads to pain and functional incapacity. The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of the incorporation of photobiomodulation (PBM) (via cluster) into a physical exercise program on the level of pain, lower limb muscle strength, and physical capacity, in patients with knee OA. Sixty-two female volunteers with a diagnosis of knee OA were distributed in 4 groups: exercise associated with placebo PBM group, exercise associated with active PBM group, active PBM group, and placebo PBM group. Sixteen sessions of lower limb strength exercises and PBM via cluster...

Authors: Luo J, Zhang S, Tan M, Li J, Xu H, Tan Y, Huang Y Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major contributor to cancer-associated mortality in China and remains a vast challenge worldwide. Although the genetic basis of CRC has been investigated, the uncommonly mutated genes in CRC remain unknown, in particular in the Asian population. In the present study, targeted region sequencing on 22 CRC and 10 paired non-cancerous tissues was performed to determine the genetic pattern of CRC samples in the Chinese population. Driver genes were detected by three distinct softwares, including MutSigCV, oncodriveFM and iCA...

Authors: Banias L, Jung I, Bara T, Fulop Z, Simu P, Simu I, Satala C, Gurzu S Abstract The aim of the present study was to classify colorectal carcinoma (CRC) into molecular subtypes, based on immunohistochemical (IHC) assessments. A total of 112 CRC samples were molecularly classified based on the expression levels of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT)-associated IHC markers. A total of three molecular subtypes were defined: Epithelial, membrane positivity for E-cadherin and β-catenin, negative for vimentin; mesenchymal, E-cadherin-negative, nuclear β-catenin- and vimentin-positive; and hybrid cases...
