PRISM: Political & Rights Issues & Social Movements

Florida Atlantic University and the University of Central Florida have teamed up to gather a range of pamphlets and other materials concerning socialist, communist, and leftist views on a host of topics, from Marxist economics to world pacifism to anti-colonialism. The digitized collection features authors from the United States, the former USSR, India, Korea, and other countries, with archival material written primarily in the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries. Readers may like to select Browse the Collection to begin. This will pull up nearly 2,000 documents, which can then be sorted by Title, Creator, Subject, and Date. The documents may also be searched by selecting Refine, and then using the Search Text box. Amazingly, historical documents such as “Woman’s place in the fight for a better world,” a 1947 publication from Elizabeth Gurley Flynn of the Communist Party of the United States of America, can be downloaded in PDF format.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by at 11:53 am under Dentistry
Tags:

Date: May 27, 2015 (Wednesday)
Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Venue: The Lounge, 7/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

Presenter: Ms. Basudan Aishah Mohammed A, PhD Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)

Title: ZONE-SPECIFIC GENE EXPRESSION OF MANDIBULAR CONDYLAR CARTILAGE: A Promising Approach or an Overcomplicated Strategy?

Abstract: Mandibular condylar cartilage (MCC) possesses a unique multizonal structure to perform its function as a lubricating and load-bearing surface in the TMJ and as a growth plate cartilage. Trauma and/or pathogenesis of the MCC, which has limited capacity for regeneration, are significant causes of morbidity in human beings. Thus, tissue engineering may provide an ideal solution, but current zone-specific information is limited to a small set of genes and proteins. Resolving functional and phenotypic differences between cell populations of the MCC is important to understand mechanisms of homeostasis and pathogenesis. In addition, the identification of zone specific differential gene expression is useful in tissue engineering approaches to recapitulate the native zonal architecture.

The aim of our study is to obtain new insights into the characterization of MCC cells by investigating gene expression profiles of individually isolated MCC zones. The question that arises: is this zonal-based investigation a promising approach or just an overcomplicated strategy?

Presenter: Miss Ren Chong, PhD Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)

Title: A randomized controlled trial of a laser-aided orthodontic treatment for patients with periodontitis

Abstract: The objective of this double-blind randomized controlled trial is to assess the effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) in orthodontic patients with periodontitis on pain, periodontal inflammation, alveolar bone remodeling and dentin sensitivity. Thirty-five nonsmoking patients (male or female, 18-60 years old) with controlled chronic periodontitis will be recruited. After insertion of the first archwire, one side of the arch will be randomly assigned to repeated LLLT (940nm, continuous mode and energy density: 3.57 J/cm2) and the other side to placebo laser. Following parameters will be recorded on selected time-points during the 12-month follow-up: visual analogue scale, bite force, cytokines in gingival crevicular fluid, bacteria levels in supragingival plaque, clinical parameters and cone-beam computed tomography. This study will provide first-hand evidence for the incorporation of LLLT in adjunctive orthodontic treatment for patients with chronic periodontitis.

Fundamentals of oral histology and physiology / edited by Arthur R. Hand, Marion E. Frank.

D 617.61 F98

 

Fundamentals of Oral Histology and Physiology is a landmark new text streamlining the essentials of histology and physiology into one clinically accessible textbook. Written for predoctoral dental students, the book brings together structure, function, and clinical correlations for maximum retention and ease of use.

 

Assuming a background in basic biologic sciences, this text focuses on the histology and physiology that students need to know to practice dentistry and to understand and evaluate the current literature, without repeating basic information learned in other courses. Fundamentals of Oral Histology and Physiology concentrates on Oral Structures and Features, including Development, Teeth, Tooth and Jaw Support, Mucosal Structure and Function, and Effectors.

The dentist’s quick guide to medical conditions / Mea A. Weinberg, Stuart L. Segelnick, Joseph S. Insler with Samuel Kramer.

D 617.666 W42

 

With increasing numbers of dental patients being elderly or having medical conditions, it is important for the dentist to understand how these conditions may impact dental treatment. The Dentist’s Quick Guide to Medical Conditions presents the relevant information dentists need—symptoms, diagnostic tests, medications prescribed, and dental management—for each disease and condition. Chapters will focus on each major bodily system, including respiratory, cardiovascular, hematologic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, immune, nervous, reproductive, and urinary, as well as chapters on the liver, kidneys, skin, and psychological conditions. Appendices list guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis, additional conditions requiring antibiotics, and a quick list of diagnostic tests.
