The effect of nocturnal wear of dentures on the sleep quality: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Purpose The effect of nocturnal wear of denture on sleep quality and integrity is still not well understood. Therefore, this systematic review was conducted to provide evidence on this topic. Methods Electronic ...
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 ...
Does immediate loading affect clinical and patient-centered outcomes of mandibular 2-unsplinted-implant overdenture? : a 2-year within-case analysis
Objective To provide 2-year clinical- and patient-oriented data with regard to mandibular overdenture assisted by 2 immediately loaded unsplinted implants. Material and methods In this pre-post design, Phase-I ...
Drug-induced parkinsonism: diagnosis and management
Drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP) has been known for >60 years. It is the second leading cause of parkinsonism, but still underdiagnosis is likely to influence reported incidence figures. Since DIP is clinically undistinguishable ...
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 ...

Assessment of the potential role of muscle spindle mechanoreceptor afferents in chronic muscle pain in the rat masseter muscle
Background: The phenotype of large diameter sensory afferent neurons changes in several models of neuropathic pain. We asked if similar changes also occur in ‘‘functional’’ pain syndromes. Methodology/Principal Findings: ...
