Periodontal treatment effects on endothelial function and cardiovascular disease biomarkers in subjects with chronic periodontitis: protocol for a randomized clinical trial
TLDR
This RCT is expected to provide more evidence on the effects of different periodontal treatment modalities on FMD values, as well as to correlate such findings with different surrogate markers of systemic inflammation with cardiovascular effects. Expand
Acute and subacute toxicity of Salvia scutellarioides in mice and rats.
TLDR
The acute and subacute toxicity of the aqueous extract of Salvia scutellarioides (Lamiaceae) was studied in mice and rats and pathologically, neither gross abnormalities nor histopathological changes were observed. Expand
Adverse drug reactions in internal medicine units at a university hospital: a descriptive pilot study
TLDR
Frequency of ADRs was similar to the number reported in other studies in internal medicine units, and it is necessary to systematize efforts of pharmacological surveillance in hospital wards, toward an opportune detection and prevention ofADRs. Expand
Implementation of the isolated vascular tissue model as a device for the validation of medicinal plants: Study of the vasodilator activity of Salvia scutellarioides
TLDR
The implemented isolated organ technique is viable up to 5 hours, and does not produce alfa 1 receptors desensibilization, and the TM diminution by S. scutellarioides is explained by a non competitiveAlfa 1 antagonism effect. Expand
Implementation of the technique in isolated organ vascular as tool for the validation of medicinal plants: Study of the vasodilator effect of the S. scutellarioides*
TLDR
The implemented isolated organ technique is viable up to 5 hours, and does not produce α1 receptors desensibilization, and is explained by a non competitive α1 antagonism effect. Expand
Biomarkers of cardiovascular disease are increased in untreated chronic periodontitis: a case control study.
TLDR
Subgingival red complex bacteria and important cardiovascular risk markers were increased in untreated chronic moderate to severe periodontitis cases and seems to be associated with systemic inflammation that could increase the risk of cardiovascular events. Expand
Why Must Physicians Know About Oral Diseases?
TLDR
Physicians need to get more involved in oral health promotion and oral health education should be included in the curriculum of future medical students. Expand
