Neurofibromas-benign, slow-growing nerve sheath neoplasms composed of Schwann cells, perineural cells, and fibroblasts-are common neurogenic tumors on skin but uncommon intraorally. A diagnosis of neurofibroma can be established by clinical and histologic examinations. This case report describes an unusual presentation of solitary neurofibroma on the(More)
Renal transplantation has been very effective in the treatment of end-stage renal disease. Over 750 cases of successful pregnancies in these patients have been reported, and only 15 patients with sickle cell disease (homozygous hemoglobin S) have had renal allografts. The present study documents the first case of a successful pregnancy in a patient with(More)
Abnormal lipid metabolism is a main cause of dyslipidemia, which is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease and obesity and is even linked to diabetic-dyslipidemic complications. Fifteen days of high-fat feeding in Charles Foster rats resulted in a significant increase in baseline serum lipid levels accompanied by pronounced dyslipidemia. Treatment(More)
The purpose of this case report is to present the results of Fibrin Adhesive System (FAS) application, a topical biological tissue adhesive in the treatment of maxillary buccal recessions. A 40-year-old male patient presented with a pair of class I buccal recession defects on maxillary cuspids. Clinical parameters were recorded at baseline, 1 month, and 3(More)
1. The effects of medium pH and temperature on glutamine uptake, NH3 production and CO2 production were examined using kidney cortex slices from normal and acidotic rats. 2. Uptake of glutamine by kidney slices from normal rats shows a pH optimum of 7.5 at 25 degrees C and 7.3 at 37 degrees C. Uptake is optimal, however, at a constant OH-/H+ ratio of 10. 3.(More)
Low level laser has been documented in literature to promote wound healing by reducing postoperative inflammation, oedema and reduces pain. This case report demonstrates the safe and positive outcome of LLLT in conjunction with demineralised bone matrix of bovine origin in the surgical treatment of a periodontal infrabony defect. After surgical defect(More)
BACKGROUND During the past two decades, dentists and microbiologists have relied on periodontal antibiotic therapy in the management of periodontitis. This association has accumulated and strengthened exponentially. Macrolides attain high therapeutic concentrations in infected tissue, so they are potentially a good choice for inhibiting invasive periodontal(More)
