The question of whether the apatite crystals of bone contain hydroxyl groups was explored using magic angle spinning, proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and resolution enhanced Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The powdered bone samples were heated at 300 degrees C in air, in CO2 at 4 bar atmosphere, and at 300 degrees C in air and(More)
OBJECTIVES Oral condition could be associated with cognitive impairment, but this is not yet well documented. We therefore hypothesized that people with poor oral condition would be more at risk to develop dementia. The objective of this study thus was to describe the oral condition of French community-dwelling elderly persons and to assess its relationship(More)
BACKGROUND Acquired or congenital loss of structure can cause facial deformity. This can destroy identity and lead to certain forms of exclusion.

METHODS An epidemiologic survey of 1,500 students at the Centre for Preventive Medicine at Paul Sabatier(More)
The diagnostic designs for the Laser Megajoule (LMJ) will require components to operate in environments far more severe than those encountered in present facilities. This harsh environment will be induced by fluxes of neutrons, gamma rays, energetic ions, electromagnetic radiations, and, in some cases, debris and shrapnel, at levels several orders of(More)
There are many ways of identifying victims of catastrophes but in disasters where most soft tissue has been lost, the hard tissues of teeth can be used. This article describes the important role that forensic odontology can play in these cases. This role has not been recognised in most countries, particularly developing countries, where forensic odontology(More)
