Clinical and pathological characterization of oral mucosal 'lichen planus-like lesions ' in patients with pemphigus vulgaris: An observational study

Conclusion: Lichen planus-like lesions in pemphigus should not be labeled as inactive disease or postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Apoptosis followed by pigment incontinence seems to explain such lesions with 'lichen planus-like appearance' in oral pemphigus vulgaris. Active pemphigus smoulders in a majority of these lesions.

CONCLUSION: TA is as acceptable and safe as cryotherapy in screen and treat setting. TA has the logistic advantages for the low-resourced settings as the machines are more portable, do not require costly refrigerant gas and battery-driven models are available. The cure rates for CIN 1+ lesions in our study were comparable between cryotherapy and TA. PMID: 32458647 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Goel H, Singhal S, Mathur R, Syeda S, Gupta RK, Kumar A, Shrivastava A, Jha AK Abstract ABSTRACTLarge Tumor Suppressor (LATS2) gene are Tumor Suppressor gene, linked with epigenetic modifications. LATS2 promoter hypermethylation is an important epigenetic silencing mechanism leading to cancer. Cancer is the most common, vicious and dangerously increasing diseases of the world today, associated with high morbidity and mortality. Oral cancers (OC) are the blazing universal dilemma and is the sixth most frequent cancer observed in Indian population. Tobacco consumption is the main cause of the increase in OSC...

The residents of this region, representing almost 60% of the global population, demonstrate an eclectic and complex nature, with huge disparities in ethnicity, sociocultural practices among others. The Asian National Cancer Centers Alliance (ANCCA) was established in 2005 by heads of several n...

In this study, the authors aimed to assess the association of loneliness and disability with oral health in 2 groups older adults (≥ 60 years) in central India. METHODS: A total of 421 older adults participated in the study; 316 (75.1%) attended outpatient services at the Department of Dentistry, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhopal, India, and 105 (24.9%) were from old age homes. The authors used the Patients Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System's social isolation 8a short form to assess loneliness. Disability was assessed using the 12-item version of the self-administered World Health Organi...

Purpose of review In this review, we summarize recent advances in the understanding of the neural control of the bladder, bowel and sexual function, in both men and women. Recent findings Evidence of supraspinal areas controlling the storage of urine and micturition in animals, such as the pontine micturition centre, emerged in the early 20th century. Neurological stimulation and lesion studies in humans provided additional indirect evidence for additional bladder-related brain areas. Thereafter, functional neuroimaging in humans with PET and fMRI provided more direct evidence of the involvement of these brain areas. ...
