A  mathematical model to estimate the number of unreported SARS-CoV-2 infections in the early phase of the pandemic using Germany and Italy as examples
CONCLUSION: The number of unreported SARS-CoV-2-infected cases derived from the model can largely explain the difference in observations in case mortalities and of conditions in the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany and Italy. The model is simple, fast, and robust to implement, and can respond well when the reporting numbers are not representative of the population in terms of age structure. We suggest considering this model for efficient and early estimations of unreported case numbers in future epidemics and pandemics.PMID:34297161 | DOI:10.1007/s00103-021-03384-z (Source: Bundesgesundheitsblatt, Gesundheit...

Social inequalities in the regional spread of SARS-CoV-2 infections
CONCLUSION: The regional temporal course of the pandemic correlates with social and economic indicators. A differentiated consideration of these differences could provide information on target group-specific protection and test strategies and help to identify social factors that generally favor infections.PMID:34297163 | DOI:10.1007/s00103-021-03387-w (Source: Bundesgesundheitsblatt, Gesundheitsforschung, Gesundheitsschutz)

Sexual health and medicine at the WIR-Walk In Ruhr: presentation of the center and results of the evaluation
We present the results achieved at WIR.METHODS: A mixed-method design of qualitative and quantitative surveys.RESULTS: The WIR reaches more women (27.7%) and heterosexuals (56.4%) than other counseling/test centers. The rate of positive test results at the WIR increased from 9.3% in 2017 to 12.6% in 2018 and progress from prevention to medical care is a significant aspect of WIR. The Federal Ministry of Health has externally evaluated WIR for over three years.DISCUSSION: The integrative care model of WIR allows for early outreach and treatment of individuals with HIV/ST infections.

It is estimated that around 10 million people in Germany suffer from severe forms of periodontitis. The disease usually shows few or only mild symptoms over many years, which are often not perceived or correctly classified by the patient. A lack of awareness could lead to dental treatment being sought in an advanced stage of the disease when extensive...

Utilization and expenses in dental care : An overview based on routine data from Germany
CONCLUSIONS: With the high utilization rate, good prerequisites for prevention-oriented dentistry exist. Although there is a positive trend towards a slight increase in the utilization of preventive services, dental care is still mostly oriented towards invasive intervention. Further promotion of health literacy of the population and incentives promoting prevention can be seen as useful instruments to implement a substantial paradigm shift.PMID:34223916 | DOI:10.1007/s00103-021-03374-1 (Source: Bundesgesundheitsblatt, Gesundheitsforschung, Gesundheitsschutz)

Oral and pharyngeal cancer: incidence, mortality, and survival in Germany
CONCLUSION: The marked heterogeneity of the studied tumors highlights the need to differentiate the analysis by sex and entity for meaningful interpretation of epidemiologic metrics. With the expansion of clinical cancer registration in Germany, additional analyses including other important clinical factors will be possible in the future.PMID:34212206 | DOI:10.1007/s00103-021-03368-z (Source: Bundesgesundheitsblatt, Gesundheitsforschung, Gesundheitsschutz)

Dental disorders with a  psychosocial background
Bundesgesundheitsblatt Gesundheitsforschung Gesundheitsschutz. 2021 Jul 1. doi: 10.1007/s00103-021-03369-y. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWhile the mouth and teeth play a lifelong central role in a person's development and wellbeing, psychosocial aspects of disease and health are still only reluctantly included in dental explanatory models. Only dental anxiety with its disease quality of a specific phobia is generally recognized as a mental disorder requiring intervention. It is interpreted as an emotional reaction to aspects of dental treatment, which results in distress for the affected person and appears to be unreasona...

Oral health literacy of persons with migration background-first results of the MuMi study
This article presents results on oral health literacy and oral health gained from the MuMi study (promoting oral health and oral health literacy of people with a migration background).METHODS: The oral health and oral health literacy as well as the sociodemographics of patients with and without migration background were examined in 40 dental surgeries in Hamburg, Germany. Associations between migrant status, oral health, and oral health literacy were analyzed with logistic regressions. Potential confounders were gradually integrated into the multivariate analyses.RESULTS: Patients with and without a migration background di...

Molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH)-discussion of prevalence and etiology with special reference to the results from the Munich birth cohorts GINIplus and LISA
Bundesgesundheitsblatt Gesundheitsforschung Gesundheitsschutz. 2021 Jul 2. doi: 10.1007/s00103-021-03366-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAfter caries, molar incisor hypomineralisation (MIH)-also known as chalky teeth-is one the most common dental diseases in children and adolescents. In addition to aesthetic limitations, especially on the anterior teeth, hypersensitivities and enamel breakdowns on permanent molars are of functional importance. While the MIH prevalence rates range from ~ 10% to ~ 30% and is well described, the situation regarding aetiology is unsatisfactory. Although efforts have been made in the past to c...
