Classification criteria for Sjögren's syndrome: a revised version of the European criteria proposed by the American-European Consensus Group
TLDR
These classification criteria for Sjögren's syndrome have been re-examined by consensus group members, who have introduced some modifications, more clearly defined the rules for classifying patients with primary or secondary SS, and provided more precise exclusion criteria.
Clinical practice guidelines for the prevention and treatment of cancer therapy–induced oral and gastrointestinal mucositis
TLDR
An expert panel was assembled to evaluate the literature and to create evidence‐based guidelines for preventing, evaluating, and treating mucositis.
Bacteremia Associated With Toothbrushing and Dental Extraction
TLDR
Although amoxicillin has a significant impact on bacteremia resulting from a single-tooth extraction, given the greater frequency for oral hygiene, toothbrushing may be a greater threat for individuals at risk for infective endocarditis.

TLDR
The diagnostic criteria for Sjörgen's syndrome is reviewed, as well as some of the more common associated signs and symptoms.
Oral pilocarpine for post-irradiation xerostomia in patients with head and neck cancer.
TLDR
Pilocarpine improved saliva production and relieved symptoms of xerostomia after irradiation for cancer of the head and neck, with minor side effects that were predominantly limited to sweating.
Application of microchip assay system for the measurement of C-reactive protein in human saliva.
TLDR
The objective of this study was to apply an ultra-sensitive microchip assay system for the measurement of CRP in human saliva to provide direct experimental evidence that chronic periodontal disease may be associated with higher levels of salivary CRP.
Molecular Analysis of Oral and Respiratory Bacterial Species Associated with Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia
TLDR
The data indicate that the dorsal surface of the tongue serves as a potential reservoir for bacterial species involved in VAP, and it is clear that the diversity of bacterial pathogens for VAP is far more complex than the current literature suggests.
