From theoretical concepts to policies and applied programmes: the landscape of integration of oral health in primary care
Background: Despite its importance, the integration of oral health into primary care is still an emerging practice in the field of health care services. This scoping review aims to map the literature and provide a summary ...
An astrocyte-dependent mechanism for neuronal rhythmogenesis
Communication between neurons rests on their capacity to change their firing pattern to encode different messages. For several vital functions, such as respiration and mastication, neurons need to generate a rhythmic firing ...
Ion homeostasis in rhythmogenesis : the interplay between neurons and astroglia
Proper function of all excitable cells depends on ion homeostasis. Nowhere is this more critical than in the brain where the extracellular concentration of some ions determines neurons' firing pattern and ability to encode ...
Neonatal low-protein diet reduces the masticatory efficiency in rats
Little is known about the effects of undernutrition on the specific muscles and neuronal circuits involved in mastication. The aim of this study was to document the effects of neonatal low-protein diet on masticatory ...
Intraosseous Schwannoma of the Jaws: An Updated Review of the Literature and Report of 2 New Cases Affecting the Mandible
Schwannomas are benign nerve sheath neoplasms composed almost entirely of Schwann cells. These tumors most often arise in the soft tissues of the head and neck. However, seldom do they occur within bone. This article ...
Oral pyoderma gangrenosum: diagnosis, treatment and challenges: a systematic review
Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a distinctive ulcerative skin disorder of unknown etiology, associated with an underlying systemic disease in up to 70% of cases. The condition is characterized by the appearance of one or ...
Integration of oral health into primary care : a scoping review protocol
Integrated care has been introduced as a means of improving health outcomes and access to care, and reducing the cost of healthcare. Despite its importance, the integration of oral health into primary care is still an ...
Endothelin-1 in osteoarthritic chondrocytes triggers nitric oxide production and upregulates collagenase production
The mechanism of endothelin-1 (ET-1)-induced nitric oxide (NO) production, MMP-1 production and MMP-13 production was investigated in human osteoarthritis chondrocytes. The cells were isolated from human articular cartilage ...
Association entre les affections buccodentaires et le cancer colorectal : une revue et synthèse de la littérature
Association between oral conditions and colorectal cancer : a literature review and synthesis
Position du problème: La parodontite chronique et l’édentement sont des affections buccodentaires chroniques qui, depuis quelques décennies, sont incriminées dans la survenue de différents types de cancers. Cette revue de ...
