The oral mucosa's accessibility, excellent blood supply, by-pass of hepatic first-pass metabolism, rapid repair and permeability profile make it an attractive site for local and systemic drug delivery. Technological advances in mucoadhesives, sustained drug release, permeability enhancers and drug delivery vectors are increasing the efficient delivery of(More)
Signs and symptoms of contact allergic reactions affecting the oral mucosa may mimic other common oral disorders, making diagnosis difficult. Patients frequently seek multiple consultations and do not receive the correct diagnosis or effective management. As intraoral contact allergy may be more prevalent than previously believed, a review of this topic is(More)
1 PCDDs and PCDFs are ubiquitous and persistent in the environment. They are to be found in body tissues of both humans and animals. 2 The most extensively studied PCDD is 2,3,7,8-TCDD. It has been shown to produce a wide range of effects and is considered to be a (non-genotoxic) carcinogen in animals. 3 Studies into the mechanisms of toxicity so far reveal(More)
This study was performed to determine the role of the oral cavity in causing septicemia in patients with acute leukemia. Thirty-three patients with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia were investigated prospectively via clinical, hematologic, and microbiologic techniques. The mouth was the most likely source of septicemia in seven of twelve cases. Necessary(More)
There are few topical formulations used for oral medicine applications most of which have been developed for the management of dermatological conditions. As such, numerous obstacles are faced when utilizing these preparations in the oral cavity, namely enzymatic degradation, taste, limited surface area, poor tissue penetration and accidental swallowing.

Two studies examined the conditions under which event schema or scripts produce gap-filling errors in eyewitness accounts of a robbery. In Study 1, scripts for the robbery of a convenience store were identified. Results revealed high agreement among the 120 participants concerning the sequence of actions for such a robbery. Based on the information obtained(More)
Plasma cell gingivitis is a disorder first described in the 1960s and was believed to be caused by an allergic reaction to flavored chewing gum and toothpaste. The lesion was believed to have been largely eliminated by removing the allergens from the products. We report two additional cases, not related to a known allergen. One patient was allergy tested(More)
Infection is the most common cause of morbidity and death in patients receiving chemotherapy for treatment of acute leukemia. Studies performed during the past decade suggest that over 30% of these infections originate from oral sources, particularly periodontal pockets and pericoronal flaps. Studies of large numbers of patients receiving a variety of(More)
IMPORTANCE Mobile teledermatology may increase access to care. OBJECTIVE To determine whether mobile teledermatology in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients in Gaborone, Botswana, was reliable and produced valid assessments compared with face-to-face dermatologic consultations.
