PUEPOSE: To investigate the position and course of mandibular canal through mandibular ramus in patients with prognathism using computed tomography, and to relate the findings to sagittal split ramus osteotomy, and also to describe the anatomical variability of mandibular canal in order to reduce injuries to the inferior alveolar nerve. The mandibles of 45 patients with skeletal Class III prognathism undergoing sagittal split ramus osteotomy were examined by spiral computed tomography. The region from a plane containing the lowest point of mandibular foramen(base plane 0) to 25 mm below it was measured with 5 mm distance every plane. The following parameters were measured: total thickness of mandible through the center of mandibular canal, thickness of buccal and lingular cortical plate, and narrowest portion of bone marrow space between the outer mandibular canal and both the buccal and lingular cortex. All measurements were analyzed with SPSS 13.0 software package. The thickness of mandible increased from the mandibular formen to mandibular body, there was no statistical difference among the sites with regards to the inner diameter of mandibular canal (F=1.044,P=0.391). The width of bone marrow space at the buccal side was si...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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation 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.
