The Second Mesiobuccal Canal in Three-rooted Maxillary First Molar of Karnataka Indian Sub-populations: A Cone-beam Computed Tomography Study.
This study investigated the prevalence and location of second mesiobuccal (MB2) canal in mesiobuccal root of maxillary first molar using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images in an Indian population.MATERIALS AND METHODSCBCT images of 598 three rooted maxillary first molars were studied. In each CBCT image, the floor of pulp chamber was located and advanced by 2mm to standardize the observation for MB2 canal. Its location was determined in relation to mesiobuccal (MB1) and palatal (P) canal.STATISTICAL ANALYSISThe data was analysed using descriptive statistics. The presence of MB2 canal was correlated with age, gende...

Risk of cognition alteration and emotional frailty via circulating transcriptome in treatment naïve head and neck squamous cell cancer patient
DiscussionTranscriptome's have been postulated to mediate CA-EF by targeted action on human brain. Differential Expression of putative genes associated with CA-EF have been demonstrated in HNSCC tumor. These DE could predispose the patients to CA-EF by the action of gene-environmental as well as psycho-social constructs. As CA-EF could adversely influence the treatment and alter the quality of life among survivors, screening for CA-EF at HNSCC presentation becomes imperative.
