Porphyromonas gingivalis is a low-abundance oral anaerobic bacterium implicated in periodontitis, a polymicrobial inflammatory disease, and the associated systemic conditions. However, the mechanism by which P. gingivalis contributes to inflammation and disease has remained elusive. Here we show that P. gingivalis, at very low colonization levels, triggers(More)

This is a review of the literature on osteogenesis imperfecta and a case report of an edentulous patient with osteogenesis imperfecta rehabilitated with implant-supported fixed prostheses in the maxilla and mandible. Quality and quantity of the bone is of paramount importance for establishment of osseointegration. In osteogenesis imperfecta bone is(More)
The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) was established in 1975. IFPRI is one of 15 agricultural research centers that receive principal funding from governments, private foundations, and international and regional organizations, most of which are members of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).

Third-party information has greatly decreased tax underreporting, but substantial underreporting persists where third-party information is not present. We investigate the preliminary response of businesses filing a Schedule C to the introduction in 2011 of Form 1099-K, which provides the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and taxpayers with information about(More)

I took another Classics course the next semester and I knew for sure that this was what I wanted to do. " Prior to her first summer at the College, she applied to be a(More)
This case study reports the novel application of three-dimensional technologies such as micro-CT and 3D printing to the forensic investigation of a complex case of dismemberment. Micro-CT was successfully employed to virtually align severed skeletal elements found in different locations, analyse tool marks created during the dismemberment process, and(More)
The 4nu(CH) rovibrational manifold around 12 700 cm(-1) in the electronic ground state, X, of acetylene (C2H2) is monitored by time-resolved infrared-ultraviolet double-resonance (IR-UV DR) spectroscopy. An IR laser pulse initially prepares rotational J states, associated with the "IR-bright" (nu1 + 3nu3) or (1 0 3 0 0)0 vibrational combination level, and(More)
