A sharp increase in the incidence of pediatric thyroid papillary cancer was documented after the Chernobyl power plant explosion. An increased prevalence of rearrangements of the RET protooncogene (RET/PTC rearrangements) has been reported in Belarussian post-Chernobyl papillary carcinomas arising between 1990 and 1995. We analyzed 67 post-Chernobyl(More)
The increase in thyroid carcinoma post-Chernobyl has been largely confined to a specific subtype of papillary carcinoma (solid/follicular). This subtype is observed predominantly in children under 10 in unirradiated populations, but maintains a high frequency in those aged 10-15 from those areas exposed to fallout from the Chernobyl accident.

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of crevicular application of a collagen stabilizer on ligature-induced periodontal disease in beagle dogs. Fourteen male and female dogs, 15 months of age, were studied. The mandibular first molars and third and fourth premolars were ligated for 6 months and moderate periodontitis resulted.

The effect on formed dental plaque of a commercial mouthwash containing cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) was evaluated in forty-one adults. During this fourteen day study no oral hygiene other than the use of a mouthwash was provided. Plaque and gingival indices were scored on sixteen teeth at days 0, 7 and 14. The results of this study suggested that(More)
This was a double-blind, radomized, crossover study of adult subjects to evaluate the effect of a test mouthrinse (Cepacol) on plaque accumulation. The study was divided into two parts, four weeks each, one in which only a mouthwash was used (part I) and the other in which a mouthwash and toothbrushing were used (part II). 1. The test mouthrinse produced a(More)
