UNLABELLED Genomic analyses are yielding a host of new information on the multiple genetic abnormalities associated with specific types of cancer. A comprehensive description of cancer-associated genetic abnormalities can improve our ability to classify tumors into clinically relevant subgroups and, on occasion, identify mutant genes that drive the cancer(More)
We combined whole-cell recordings with Neurobiotin labeling to examine the electrophysiological and morphological properties of neurons from the ventral subicular complex in vitro (including the subicular, presubicular, and parasubicular areas). No a priori morphological sampling criteria were used to select cells. Cells were classified as bursting (IB),(More)
Methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) is primarily used as a denaturant for rubbing alcohol, as a solvent and in the manufacture of methyl amyl alcohol. Inhalation of vapors is the most likely route of exposure in the work place. In order to evaluate the potential of MIBK to induce toxic and carcinogenic effects following chronic exposure, groups of 50 male and 50(More)
BACKGROUND This study aims to compare the survival rate of short (<10 mm) and standard (≥10 mm) rough-surface dental implants under functional loading. METHODS An electronic literature search using PubMed and Medline databases was conducted. Prospective clinical human trials, published in English from January 1997 to July 2011, that examined dental(More)
PURPOSE The primary aim of this systematic review was to compare the amount of marginal bone loss around tilted and straight implants. As the secondary aim, the incidence of biomechanic complications was compared. MATERIALS AND METHODS An electronic literature search from five databases, for the years 2000 to 2011, and a hand search in implant-related(More)
PURPOSE This systematic review aimed to evaluate the effect of implant length on peri-implant marginal bone loss (MBL) and its associated influencing factors. MATERIAL AND METHODS An electronic search of the PubMed and MEDLINE databases for relevant studies published in English from November 2006 to July 2012 was performed by one examiner (AM). Selected(More)
BACKGROUND This meta-analysis of prospective clinical trials was conducted to determine the effects of dental implant length and width on implant survival rate of short (<10 mm) implants. METHODS An electronic search of the PubMed database for relevant studies published in English from November 1998 to March 2012 was performed. Selected studies were(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic alcoholism is associated with increased total serum IgE levels. OBJECTIVE The study aimed to investigate the relationship between alcohol intake and both total serum IgE levels and allergic sensitization in a general adult population. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 720 subjects was randomly selected (stratified by age) from the(More)
BACKGROUND Dental implant placement is a widely used treatment that provides functional and esthetic resolution for patients suffering from tooth loss. However, the incidence of peri-implant diseases has been rising recently. Periodontal diseases and peri-implant diseases share many similarities. Hence, it is important to find out whether patients with(More)
In spite of the large variability of the fraction of bursting cells reported in the subiculum (from 54 to 100%), this structure has been considered as intrinsically bursting. Here, using visually assisted whole-cell recordings and Neurobiotin labeling in vitro, we correlated the electrophysiological firing modes of subicular cells (bursting, regular-spiking(More)
