Osteoradionecrosis is a severe complication of radiotherapy characterized by the following sequence: radiation, trauma, bone exposure. The radiation reduces the vascularization potential of the tissues which leads to a hypoxic state that jeopardizes cellular activity and collagen formation. The diagnosis of osteoradionecrosis relies on the clinical(More)
Recently, we showed that increased SLPI levels prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and metastasis in smoking-induced, non-HPV-driven head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Here, we focus on the role of SLPI in non-HPV-driven HNSCC, investigating tumor tissue and non-neoplastic mucosa from the same patients and from non-HNSCC patients. Gene(More)
This case report describes severe dento-maxillofacial defects after chemoradiation therapy in a child aged 9 years 6 months with a parameningeal rhabdomyosarcoma. A clinical and radiologic (apical dental radiographs, orthopantograph, lateral skull roentgenogram) dental follow-up over 4 years showed such dental abnormalities as root blunting, mild to severe(More)
Recent developments in the commercial open source community have catalysed the use of Linux containers for scalable deployment of web-based applications to the cloud. Scientific software can be containerized with dependencies, configuration files, post-processing tools and even simulation results, referred to as containerized computing. This new approach(More)
