Frequency of BRAF V600E immunoexpression in ameloblastomas: a multi-institutional analysis of 86 cases in Latin America and comprehensive review of the literature
CONCLUSIONS: This study highlights a high frequency of BRAF V600E immunoreactivity in ameloblastomas among Latin American cases. The prevalence of the BRAF V600E immunoexpresion may suggest the feasibility of utilizing BRAF-targeted therapy for ameloblastomas with this mutation.PMID:38615253 | DOI:10.4317/medoral.26493 (Source: Medicina Oral, Patologia Oral y Cirugia Bucal)

Effectiveness of intra-articular infiltration of platelet concentrates for the treatment of painful joint disorders in the temporomandibular joint: a systematic review
CONCLUSIONS: Platelet-rich Plasma might potentially be effective in reducing pain levels and improving clinical parameters such as interincisal distance. However, studies with better methodological quality, larger sample sizes, and lower risk of bias are required to assess the real value of this intervention in the management of painful joint disorders.PMID:38615254 | DOI:10.4317/medoral.25658 (Source: Medicina Oral, Patologia Oral y Cirugia Bucal)

Antibiotic prescribing patterns in the placement of dental implants in Europe: A systematic review of survey-based studies
CONCLUSIONS: The most commonly prescribed antibiotic both pre- and postoperatively is amoxicillin and, in allergic patients, clindamycin. In Europe, more doses of PAT are being prescribed than suggested by current recommendations. For this reason, more PAT education is needed in educational curricula to promote a more rational use of antibiotics to reduce the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance.PMID:38615255 | DOI:10.4317/medoral.26450 (Source: Medicina Oral, Patologia Oral y Cirugia Bucal)
