CD44, an extracellular matrix (ECM) receptor, has been described as a cancer stem cell marker in multiple cancers, including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). HNSCC orasphere formation or stemness was characterized by cleavage of CD44, and thus we hypothesized that this proteolytic processing may be critical to stemness and tumorigenesis. We(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC The most common legal claim that anesthesiologists can encounter after general anesthesia would be dental damage. The major causal factors for dental lesion, associated with oral endotracheal intubation, are patient's poor dentition, aggressive laryngoscopy, insufficient anesthesia and curarization, emergency(More)
Metabolomics is used in systems biology to enhance the understanding of complex disease processes, such as cancer. Head and neck cancer (HNC) is an epithelial malignancy that arises in the upper aerodigestive tract and affects more than half a million people worldwide each year. Recently, significant effort has focused on integrating multiple "omics"(More)
OBJECTIVES Nisin is a lantibiotic widely used for the preservation of food and beverages. Recently, investigators have reported that nisin may have clinical applications for treating bacterial infections. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of ultra pure food grade Nisin ZP (>95% purity) on taxonomically diverse bacteria common to the human(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC The brachial plexus is structurally vulnerable to damage because it is fixed at the cervical vertebra, pre-cervical fascia, and axillary fascia while it extends longitudinally on the surface layer [1]. Causative factors for brachial plexus injury (BPI) during surgery are patients' comorbidity, anatomical(More)
Relapse after orthodontic tooth movement is a significant problem in orthodontics. The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy of the osteoclast inhibitor osteoprotegerin-Fc (OPG-Fc) for inhibiting postorthodontic relapse. Rat maxillary molars were moved mesially and allowed to relapse for 24 days. Low-dose (1 mg/kg) or high-dose (5 mg/kg) OPG-Fc(More)
