We propose a computational model of the emergence of gaze following skills in infant-caregiver interactions. The model is based on the idea that infants learn that monitoring their caregiver's direction of gaze allows them to predict the locations of interesting objects or events in their environment (Moore & Corkum, 1994). Elaborating on this theory, we(More)
Platelet-rich plasma is an autologous source of platelet-derived growth factor and transforming growth factor beta that is obtained by sequestering and concentrating platelets by gradient density centrifugation. This technique produced a concentration of human platelets of 338% and identified platelet-derived growth factor and transforming growth factor(More)
PURPOSE Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ) is a poorly understood pathologic entity from the standpoints of its nomenclature, frequency, pathogenesis, and best method of treatment. In particular, numerous recommendations have been made for treatment involving nonsurgical therapy. It is the purpose of this article to specifically(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to investigate the microscopic presence of metastatic cancer in jaw specimens clinically and histologically diagnosed as having osteonecrosis in patients receiving intravenous bisphosphonate medications. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective cohort multicenter study was designed. Patients from the University of(More)
PURPOSE Human papillomavirus (HPV) is of etiologic significance in the development of oral squamous carcinoma and is noted to result in p16 overexpression. Identification of HPV is clinically important because the presence of HPV has prognostic and epidemiologic associations. Detection of HPV by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is expensive and not widely(More)
