We compared clinical data from 45 patients with Huntington's Disease (HD) with CAG triplet repeats and the planimetric measurement of the caudate nucleus head area (CNHA) in CT scans. The mean age of patients was 50.4 yrs (SD +/- 10.2), the mean duration of HD 7.4 yrs (4.6), the mean age at the onset of HD 43.1 yrs (11.1). HD started with motor symptoms in(More)
Dental caries (tooth decay) is caused by a specific group of cariogenic bacteria, like Streptococcus mutans, which convert dietary sugars into acids that dissolve the mineral in tooth structure. Killing cariogenic bacteria is an effective way to control or prevent tooth decay. In a previous study, we discovered a novel compound (Glycyrrhizol A), from the(More)
Implantation of stentless aortic valve prostheses is more time-consuming than implantation of conventional stented bioprostheses. Simultaneous myocardial revascularization can result in a considerably prolonged operation time. We reviewed our patients with regard to surgical aspects in the specific patient cohorts. From April 1996 to April 1999, 303(More)
Translational research using evidence-based and comparative effectiveness research continues to evolve, becoming a useful tool in improving informed consent and decision-making in the clinical setting. While in development, emerging technologies, including cellular and molecular biology, are leading to establishing evidence-based dental practices. One(More)
Cancer of the larynx is one of the most prevalent tumors of the head and neck, with its prognosis dependent on early diagnosis. A number of authors have now reported a connection between head and neck cancers and infection with human papilloma virus (HPV). A large number of these tumors has been found to be HPV 16/18 positive, with results ranging from 10%(More)
This article explains the fundamentals of evidence-based dentistry for the dentist. Evidence-based dentistry is a discipline whose primary participant is the translational researcher. Recent developments have emphasized the importance of this discipline (clinical and translational research) for improving health care. The process of evidence-based dentistry(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis involves psychoneuroendocrine-immunopathological comorbidities. In the stoma, patients with rheumatoid arthritis frequently show signs of periondontal disease consequent to elevated levels of crevicular proinflammatory cytokines. It is not clear whether rheumatoid arthritis may manifest in association with immunopathological(More)
Retrospective evaluations of the relevance of primary colorectal cancer (CRC) location consistently indicate that right-sided tumors, arising in the cecum, ascending colon, hepatic bend, transverse colon and splenic flexure, are clinically, biologically and genetically different from left-sided tumors - those located in the descending colon, sigmoid colon(More)
