Osteodystrophies of jaws
N Santana, S Mehazabin, K Sangeetha, M KumariJournal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology 2020 24(2):405-405 Bone is a dense, semi rigid, porous, calcified connective tissue forming the major portion of the skeleton of most vertebrates. It consists of a dense organic matrix and an inorganic mineral component. Bone remodelling is a complex process by which old bone is continuously replaced by new tissue, which requires interaction between different cell phenotypes and is regulated by a variety of biochemical and mechanical factors. In a homeostatic equilibrium, the process of resorption and formation are balanced so that ol...

Atypical presentation of tuberculosis
We present a lip swelling and discuss the differential diagnosis. Investigation of ultrasonography revealed a vascular lesion which was disproved, suggesting an increase in vascularity even in diseases such as TB. We present a case of a lip swelling which led to the diagnosis of recurrent pulmonary TB which the patient was unaware of. Findings of histopathology revealing the absence of bacilli are also discussed. Monetary constraints frequently cause a neglect of dangerous diseases such as TB.

Rare phenomena of tacrolimus-induced gingival hyperplasia
K Nivethitha, Amitha Ramesh, Avaneendra Talwar, Nina ShenoyJournal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology 2020 24(2):403-403 In the modern world, men and women are very much concerned about their esthetic appearance. The gingival perspective of esthetics is more often concerned with the soft tissue envelope surrounding the teeth. Gingival enlargement/overgrowth is numerous in nature and often poses a clinical challenge by altering the function, resulting in poor oral health of an individual. Tacrolimus, an immunosuppressive drug, has been broadly used for organ-transplant rejection. It results in much less severe hypertensio...

Cyclin D1 in oral premalignant lesions and oral squamous cell carcinoma: An immunohistochemical study
Conclusion: Thus we can conclude that cyclin D1 may be a useful marker in the cases of oral precancer and cancer. It can also act as a potential target for molecular intervention studies in future. Cyclin D1 is derived from PRAD1 or CCND1 gene located on chromosome 11q13, and it acts as a positive regulator of the cell cycle. In normal cells, cyclin D1 promotes the progression through the G1 phase of the cell cycle. Over expression of cyclin D1 may lead to the shortening of G1 phase, increased cell proliferation and reduced dependency on growth factors. Over expression of cyclin D1 has been reported in various tumors such...

Retention of pluripotency of these stem cells depends on expression/level of transcription factors, i.e., SOX2, OCT4 and NANOG. During organogenesis, the altered expression of the molecules also influences these stem cells to lose their pluripotency and turn toward the lineage selection. As the differentiation progresses, the maint...
