A Human Oocyte Stained for Zona Pellucida Glycoproteins

Mario Sousa

Article Type: Image Article | First Published: March 21, 2019

Donor surplus human oocytes were transferred to adhesive slides. Oocytes were fixed with 1% paraformaldehyde in PBS. For permeabilization, cells were incubated in 0.1% Triton X-100 (Sigma) plus 0.1% sodium citrate in PBS. Cells were then incubated with 5% Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA; Sigma) to inhibit non-specific binding. Afterwards cells were incubated with a primary monoclonal antibody against hu...

Aaron Besana, DMD, Yoon Gi Lee, Youn Sun Choi, MD, PhD, Bok Ja Jung and Eui Seok Lee, DDS, PhD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 20, 2019

Tooth loss is a risk factor for dementia. This study aimed to compare the occlusal imbalances in cognitively impaired elderly patients to those with normal cognitive function. Dementia, as defined by the World Health Organization, is a syndrome that affects memory, thinking, behavior, and the ability to perform daily activities. Approximately 47.5 million people are affected by dementia worldwide, and this number is projected to double or triple by 2050. The two most common types of dementia are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia, with the former being the leading cause of dementia in t...

Myositis Ossificans Traumatica of Bilateral Medial and Lateral Pterygoid Muscles: A Case Report

Andre Vitor Alves Araujo, Lorenzzo De Angeli Cesconetto, Antonio Dionizio De Albuquerque Neto, Daniel De Assuncao Cerqueira, Rodrigo Calado Nunes E Souza and Almiro J Machado Junior

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 20, 2019

Myositis Ossificans is characterized by the heterotopic formation of bone inside a muscle, tendons and ligaments. This pathology is traditionally classified into two groups: Myositis Ossificans Progressiva and Myositis Ossificans Traumatica. The pathogenesis of Myositis Ossificans Traumatica is still not well established. Because it is uncommon in the maxillofacial region, there are no consolidate...

Differences in Clinical Variables and Physical Activity Levels of Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis in Ibadan, Nigeria

Adesola C Odole, Ezinne C Ekediegwu and Mercy U Issa

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 20, 2019

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a major cause of disability worldwide and it often results in pain, decreased physical functioning and physical activity level. This study was aimed to investigate the Pain Intensity (PI), Physical Function (PF) and Physical Activity Level (PAL) of patients with knee OA and the difference in their PI and PF across the different physical activity levels (PALs). Participants who were more active reported lower PI and higher PF. No significant difference was found between PI and PF on the basis of their PALs, however those who reported low physical activity had higher PI an...

Influencers of Health Related Quality of Life in People with Faecal Incontinence

Stephanie L Inat, Tiffany K Gill and Jodie C Avery

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 20, 2019

Faecal Incontinence (FI) is a common debilitating condition that, significantly decreases health-related quality of life (HRQoL). However, there is uncertainty about its prevalence and the factors that modulate the relationship between FI and HRQoL, which reduces the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical and public-health interventions. Data was taken from the 2004 representative cross-sectional population South Australian Health Omnibus, n = 3015 men and women aged 15 and over. The main outcome measures were the prevalence and severity of FI, urinary incontinence (UI), other comorbidities ...

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 18, 2019

The diagnosis of a neck mass can present a challenge. In the adult the most common diagnosis is malignancy, and both primary and metastatic tumors should be considered. Other frequent options are infectious processes. We present the case of an 88-year-old female patient with a submandibular mass with inflammatory signs, unresponsive to antibiotic therapy, with fine needle aspiration biopsy showing...

The Role of Genetic Mutations in Gene RBM8A in Thrombocytopenia-Absent Radius Syndrome

Shahin Asadi

Article Type: Scientific Advocacy | First Published: March 18, 2019

TAR syndrome is a genetic disorder characterized by a lack of radial bone in the forearm and a lack of blood platelets. Thrombocytopenia prevents normal blood clotting and causes bleeding easily and often bleeds from the nose. The TAR syndrome is caused by the mutation of the RBM8A gene, which is based on the long arm of chromosome 1, which is based on 1q21.1. TAR syndrome is a genetic disorder ch...

Insecticidal Activities of Chromolaena odorata and Vernonia amygdalina leaf extracts against Anopheles gambiae [Diptera: Culicidae]

Ileke Kayode David and Olabimi Isaac Omotayo

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: March 18, 2019

Female Anopheles mosquitoes are the vectors of human malaria. The use of chemical insecticides for vector control has hampered with environmental pollution and insect. This suggests the need for the development of more potent and environment-friendly insecticides for effective control of malaria. This research investigated the larvicidal, pupicidal and adulticidal activities of Chromolaena odorata and Vernonia amygdalina leaf extracts against....
