This study aims to determine the positional alterations in the course of mandibular canal, which were caused by the common cystic lesions in the posterior mandible. Also, the effects of treatment methods on bone formation were evaluated. We designed a retrospective cohort study with patients which were treated due to cystic lesions in the maxillofacial region between the years 2012-2018. Forty eight subjects were included and grouped regarding histopathologic diagnoses (radicular dentigerous and odontogenic keratocyst) and treatment methods (enucleation and marsupialization). The mean (range) of patients' age was 31.25 (18-66) years, and there were 32 male and 16 female individuals. The displacement of mandibular canals was verified on preoperative cone-beam computed tomographic images. The measurements of displacement and bone formation were performed on panoramic radiographs. In the statistical analysis of the data, descriptive statistics, parametric independent sample t-test, non-parametric Kruskal Wallis test, and one-way analysis of variance test were utilized. All the evaluated mandibular canals were replaced by a mean(SD) of 5.46(2.59) mm after the lesions eliminated, which was significant in the marsupialization group (...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
