  1. Diálogo sobre a poesia oral na Cabília: entrevista de Mouloud Mammeri a Pierre Bourdieu

    Pierre Bourdieu

    Full Text Available Neste diálogo, Pierre Bourdieu e o etnólogo, escritor e poeta argelino Mouloud Mammeri (1917-1989 exploram e explicam as bases sociais, os usos e o sentido da poesia oral na sociedade e história cabilas. Como filho do penúltimo amusnaw (sábio; bardo de sua tribo, Mammeri estava posicionado de maneira única para situar esse mestre das palavras que atuou na função tradicional de mediador e transportador do conhecimento e manteve-se como a encarnação viva da tamusni (a filosofia prática da excelência berbere, em relação com o marabuto (depositário das sagradas escrituras do Corão e com os camponeses (que compõem seu público principal. Torná-se amusnaw graças a uma eleição e isso requer um duplo aprendizado: primeiro, por osmose em um meio saturado de comércio e disputas verbais (no treinamento de guerra, na assembléia da vila, nos mercados e nas peregrinações e, depois, por meio de um treinamento explícito com um poeta-mestre que orienta uma série de exercícios e provas. Esse processo requer não apenas o domínio de uma variedade de técnicas verbais e de um cânone oratório, mas também implica absorver e encarnar a sabedoria. Jogando com a multidimensionalidade da linguagem, adaptando-a com flexibilidade diante das especificidades de cada situação e público, o bardo cabila era continuamente testado e suas habilidades culturais infinitamente refinadas, até o ponto em que ele não apenas dominasse as regras do ofício, mas também jogasse com elas, trangredindo-as no espírito da tradição a fim de inventar novas figuras retóricas e extrair o máximo de "rendimento" da linguagem. A tamusni emerge assim não apenas como um corpo de conhecimento inerte, desligado da vida e transmitido por si mesmo, mas como uma "ciência prática", constantemente revivida pela e para a prática. O poeta é o porta-voz do grupo que, por meio de seu discernimento cultural e uso técnico da linguagem, aperfeiçoa os valores espec

  6. Da poesia visual concreta à poesia virtual concreta: a ciberliteratura na sala de aula / From the concrete poetry to virtual poetry: the ciberliterature in the classroom

    Cynthia Agra de Brito Neves

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available A acusação de que o jovem aluno do século XXI não se forma leitor tornou-se senso comum em sala de professores e em conversas de adultos. Despertar no aluno o prazer do texto também tem sido tarefa árdua para muitos docentes que se veem entre os muros de uma escola ainda tão tradicional como a brasileira. Sem descartar a importância da leitura dos clássicos, é imprescindível, contudo, que a escola – e, metonimicamente, o professor – atraia o aluno-leitor para a nova era da ciberliteratura. Esta promoveu uma revolução na história da leitura – do códex ao hipertexto – e ascendeu a função do leitor, o qual se tornou mais ativo, um hiperleitor, apagando assim a função de autor, outrora merecedor de status. Seja através da hiperficção, da hiperpoesia ou do metalivro, a ciberliteratura resgata e dá continuidade ao experimentalismo universal na escrita, no som e na imagem, inaugurado pelas vanguardas europeias e pela poesia concreta – embrião da poesia virtual. Promover a interação do aluno com a poesia animada pelo computador – eis um novo desafio para a educação. AbstractThe accusation that the young student of the twenty-first century is not a reader has become common sense in the staffroom and in adult discussions. Awakening in the student the pleasure of the text has also been an arduous task for many teachers who see themselves within the walls of a school as tradicional as the Brazilian one. Without rejecting the importance of reading the classics, it is essential, however, that the school - and, metonymically, the teacher – must attract the student-reader to the new era of cyberliterature. This promoted a revolution in the history of reading – from codex to hypertext - and increased the role of the reader, who became more active, a hyper-reader, thereby clearing the role of author, once worthy of status. Whether through hyperfiction, hiperpoetry or metabooks, the cyberliterature recovers and continues

  8. A performance da voz e a subjetividade na poesia contemporânea

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2176-8552.2013n15p205 Neste artigo, tratamos da relação que se estabelece entre o sujeito leitor e a subjetividade configurada no poema contemporâneo. Para isso, consideramos a performance vocal como instrumento de compreensão do texto poético, a despeito de hoje preponderar o uso do suporte impresso para sua publicação. Acreditamos que, na medida em que a feitura do poema implica a manipulação da materialidade sonora da palavra, a sua leitura precisa recorrer à escuta de uma voz, ainda que apenas como virtualidade. Constatamos, no entanto, que a realização vocal não dá a conhecer apenas o ritmo, o andamento e a entoação do verso; por meio dela, evidencia-se a presença da subjetividade que se manifesta na composição lírica. Nesse ponto, torna-se importante a observação de que a poesia abriga no mundo contemporâneo uma diversidade de configurações dadas por um sujeito criador múltiplo. Considerando isso, tomamos para estudo poemas de poetas contemporâneos, três portugueses, Fiama Hasse Pais Brandão, Ana Luísa Amaral e Manuel de Freitas, e três brasileiros, Francisco Alvim, Neide Archanjo e Claudia Roquette-Pinto. Com base na leitura desses poemas, propomos uma classificação das diferentes ocorrências do princípio subjetivo. Verificamos, por fim, de que forma a performance da voz entra em jogo com essas ocorrências. OBS: Olliver Mariano Rosa é bolsista do CNPq.

    Full Text Available Trata-se de mostrar como a poesia de Manuel Botelho de Oliveira (Bahia, 1636-1711 visa construir a maravilha principalmente por meio das consonâncias que surpreendem, numa poesia assentada em analogias com a "música", o "canto", o "verso", a "lírica", o "ritmo", a "doçura" - conceitos presentes em tratados retóricos, poéticos e filosóficos antigos, e que, aqui, se alçam a centro desta poética, distanciada da aristotélica. Evidencia-se como, diferentemente do conceito engenhoso, causa eficiente das agudezas poéticas, o poeta êmulo de Marino privilegia em sua Lira sacra e na Música do Parnaso a sonoridade que faz admirabile o dizer do poema, tangendo finezas ou as maneiras cantáveis do "plectro doce e fino".This text explains how the poetry of Luzo-Brazilian Manuel Botelho de Oliveira (Bahia, 1636-1711 aims to build the wonderful especially through the consonances that provokes surprise, in a poetry grounded in analogies with the "music", the "chant", the "verse", the "lyrical", the "rhythm", the "sweetness" - concepts present in rhetorical, poetic and philosophical treatises of the Antiquity, and that here become center stage of this poetic, far removed from Aristotle.

    Full Text Available RESUMO Este artigo visa a estudar a presença de uma vertente barroca na poesia contemporânea. Nada melhor que a lírica armorial de Ariano Suassuna para servir de investigação a nossas suspeitas. Sendo esse gênero da obra suassuniana tão pouco examinado, provavelmente não se conheça a sua importância para a construção do sentido de sua dramaturgia e de sua prosa de ficção (bem mais conhecidas. A relação desenhada entre a teoria da dobra barroca de Deleuze e os estudos sobre a estética dos Setecentos casou tranqüilamente com a finalidade de se descobrir a essência de todo o hermetismo. Ora o poema armorial é barroco, ora seu conjunto imagético pode até sugerir, fazendo com que o leitor pense que se trata de um esteticismo simbolista, a prova disso está no registro de substantivos concretos com suas letras iniciais maiúsculas. Daí, tem-se, em parte, o movimento da dobra, sempre mutante, oscilador. Na primeira seção, é feito um breve panorama da arte barroca, marcada por suas irregularidades. Na segunda seção, justifica-se o efeito que estas causam: as dobras. A partir delas, as correspondências entre as formas fixas do poema, a heráldica sertaneja e os problemas do Nordeste se completarão perfeitamente.

    Terry Caesar

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available The current paper deals with the whole imagination of race in the work of a major American poet. The very subject of race intersects with the question of national identity, also neglected in Bishop’s work, although not in the same way. The aim of the discussion is to align the racial text with the national text. How can we understand Bishop’s consistent interest in race throughout her poetry, and what effect can be observed in it as a result of her exposure to racial constructs in Brazil that are so different from those of her native United States? We can see this effect manifest even in the controversy over her 1965 magazine article on the quatercentenary of Rio de Janeiro. What does this controversy demonstrate, finally, but that national experience with respect to race turns out to be mutually exclusive? One cannot be in this respect both Brazilian and American—in prose. In poetry, however, it is quite another matter. The subject of race is all of a piece, and has been all along conducted in Bishop’s work according to a logic ultimately apart fromnational construction. Analisa-se a imaginação de raça na obra de Elizabeth Bishop, uma poetisa importante da literatura estadunidense. O assunto ‘raça’ cruza com o problema da identidade nacional, também negligenciado na obra de Bishop, embora de modo diferente. A presente discussão alinha o texto racial ao texto nacional. Como pode-se compreender o seu interesse constante sobre ‘raça’ e quais são os efeitos em sua poesia como resultado de sua exposição às construções raciais no Brasil, as quais são tão diferentes daquelas nos Estados Unidos? Este efeito manifesta-se também em seu artigo numa revista de 1965 referente ao quatrocentenário do Rio de Janeiro. Esta controvérsia parece mostrar que a experiência nacional sobre ‘raça’ é mutuamente exclusiva. Na prosa não se pode ser brasileiro ou estadunidense ao mesmo tempo. Na poesia, parece que os parâmetros s

    Full Text Available Ao elaborar os seus Discursos, Dion Crisóstomo se vale das referênciasconstantes de Homero para a construção de imagens. Ao usar as imagens presentes na poesia épica grega, Dion Crisóstomo evoca as representações imagéticas presentes na literatura para difundir suas ideias filosóficas e políticas durante o final do Século I d.C sobos governos de Domiciano, Nerva e Trajano. Ao se fazer a análise desse autor, pretende-se também discutir a literatura como uma das formas de representação da identidade helenística sob o Principado Romano.The construction of images in the speeches of Dion Chrysostom was drawn from references in Homer. When the orator uses images from Greek epic poetry, Dion Chrysostom intimates the representation of images found in the literature to propagate his philosophical and political ideas during the first century A.D. under the administration of the emperors Domitian, Nerva and Trajan. Current analysis of the author’s works discusses literature as one of the representational forms of Hellenistic identity under Romandomination.

    Full Text Available O objetivo com este artigo foi identificar os possíveis diálogos entre a poesia e as outras artes. Apoiados na afirmação de Solange Ribeiro de Oliveira de que é possível comparar a ordem literária com outra ordem estética, tentou-se aqui aproximar a poesia de outra estética artística. Para isso, foram selecionados dois poetas do Modernismo brasileiro: João Cabral de Melo Neto e Manoel de Barros. Chegou-se à conclusão de que o fazer poético desses autores apresenta semelhanças com as técnicas utilizadas pela estética surrealista.

    Aim is to focus the poetical production of Qasmûna Bint Ismâ'îl al Yahûdi and his transmission through Arabic Anthologies dedicated to the Arabic Literary Tradition in al-Andalus and Islam. More than her religious belonging to Islam as a religion, the main reason for the transmission of Qasmûna's collection of poems seem to be the language and the style of composition, as well as her andalusian origins. For the nature of relations between Jewish communities and Islam in the Middle Ages, arabic historiographical sources become a cross-cultural narrative setting for Jewish and Islamic History, and their study fundamental in order grasp the develop of Jewish Thought in Middle Ages.

Nesse poema, as memórias do poeta maduro se mesclam à imaginação do menino Carlito, educado tanto na rigidez da família patriarcal como nas severas regras da religiosidade católica. O resultado são versos intrigantes, nos quais as reminiscências do pequeno poeta, amedrontado pelos castigos do inferno, alternam-se com descrições de alguns rituais da Inquisição, como os interrogatórios, as confissões dos pecados e os sinistros autos de fé em praça pública.

    Full Text Available Nos anos 30 e 40 do século XX, o Secretariado da Propaganda Nacional - órgão máximo da propaganda do regime de Salazar - desenvolveu um largo conjunto de iniciativas folcloristas que marcaram a memória crítica do Estado Novo. Este artigo sonda os limites de uma interpretação que reduz tal política a um instrumento de domesticação do povo, mostrando que é nos mecanismos de afirmação da nação, dentro e fora das fronteiras portuguesas, que podemos encontrar a explicação mais pertinente para a campanha etnográfica então empreendida. E é em função de tal proposta que abordaremos ainda os processos de manipulação e selecção dos materiais da cultura popular aí implicados, mostrando como, através dos mesmos, o SPN;/;SNI veiculou um retrato do país baseado na imagem do povo português enquanto camponês-esteta.In the 1930’ and 1940’ the Secretariado da Propaganda Nacional - the propaganda head office of Salazar’s dictatorship - promoted several folkloristic events, which became a core element of the Estado Novo current memory. This paper shows how the Secretariado‘s ethnographic campaign relates mostly with the politics of national identity building developed inside the Portuguese borders and in the international arena. In this context, I examine the selective approach to the folk culture materials evolved in those pratics. I also try to illuminate the ways by witch such materials were used to create a representation of the Portuguese folk as a people of artist-peasants, and of Portugal as a pacific and lovable country.

    Full Text Available Os diversos cânones da poesia brasileira não contemplam a poesia negrobrasileira como deveria ser. Sendo o poeta Luiz Gama ainda hoje menosprezado, em comparação com Castro Alves, é necessário, pois, colocá-lo no seu verdadeiro lugar de significação. Porém, esse esforço deve servir também para compreender que Gama, na sua poesia, ainda mostra alguma conformidade com certos preconceitos rácicos próprios do século XIX e que se encontram, por exemplo, em poetas angolanos. Já o poeta Solano Trindade, devido à sua formação ideologicamente comprometida com os pobres e miseráveis da sociedade, trata o negro como um ser social, econômico e cultural de corpointeiro, concepção aprofundada por Cuti, que, finalmente, deixa de apelidar o mestiço de mulato, segundo a conformidade com o Movimento Negro. Por outro lado, é um poeta da modernidade mais avançada, quer formalmente, quer atingindo o âmago do subconsciente negro, ao versar o seu sofrimento íntimo, de modo inédito. Brazilian poetry’s several literary canons fail to fully investigate Brazilian Black Poetry as it should be. In spite of the fact that the poet Luiz Gama is currently not in the limelight when compared to Castro Alves, the replacing of his real place of significance is actually worthwhile. This effort should also be needed to understand that Gama in his poetry shows a type of conformity with certain racial bias common in the 19th century as, for example, in the poetry of Angola. On the other hand, due to his ideologically committed ideology with the poor and destitute in society, the poet Solano Trindade deals with the Negro as a social, economical and cultural person. This concept is partook by Cuti who, at long last, do not call the half-breed as ‘mulato’, following orientations of the Negro Movement. On the other hand, he is formally poet featuring themost advanced modernity as he reaches the heart of the Negro subconscious in his singing of deep

    Full Text Available With no regards to the provincialism ant the resentment present in its attitude, the Brazilian Concrete Poetry movement had the intention, in the mid 50s, to haven taken a major qualitative-revolutionary step towards the evolution of the west world poetry forms, surpassing insofar, at least in technical terms, the great cultural and economic power centers of Europe and North America. Harshe/l8d by the leftist cultural movements of the sixties, the concrete poetry saw its form as the only efficient way to render social revolution through the arts. But in the eighties, it has integrated itself in the post-modem atmosphere of disenchantment in relation to the esthetic and social revolutions, that is to say, it recognized the feebleness of its formal innovations and lack of sincerity of its social-criticism. The good of what is left has undoubtedly a progressive intent and deserves now a place along with the generous utopist dream und8rlying the seemingly anti-artistic vanguards like the Centro Popular de Cultura (CPC. Sem se dar conta do quanto de provinciano e de ressentido havia na sua atitude, o movimento brasileiro da poesia concreta pretendeu, nos anos cinqüenta, ter dado um salto qualitativo-revolucionário na evolução das formas da poesia ocidental, adiantando-se assim, em termos técnicos, aos grandes centros do poder cultural e econômico na Europa e nos Estados Unidos. Atacada pelos movimentos culturais de esquerda nos anos sessenta, a poesia concreta quis ainda impor a sua forma como o único modo eficiente de fazer revolução social através da arte. Mas, já nos anos oitenta, acabou por integrar-se na atmosfera pós-moderna de desencanto em relação as revoluções sociais e estéticas, o que equivale a reconhecer a debilidade das suas inovações formais e a insinceridade dos seus episódicos prop6sitos critico - sociais. O pouco que ficou de bom da poesia concreta tem sentido inegavelmente progressivo e convém agora uni-lo ao

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available Nel 1946 “La Fiera letteraria” ospitò due importanti interventi dedicati a psicoanalisi e poesia. Il primo, per mano nientemeno che di Benedetto Croce, era una lettera di poche pagine, di sostanziale chiusura nei confronti delle pretese novità e originalità del “freudismo” soprattutto in ambito filosofico. Il secondo era la risposta, molto più dettagliata e articolata di un poeta come Umberto Saba, che invece alla psicoanalisi (e non solo come terapia credeva e teneva molto. Riproponiamo qui questi due testi, preceduti da altri due brevi interventi di Croce sulla psicoanalisi: il primo è una recensione alla traduzione francese del testo di Freud sul sogno del 1903; il secondo è una critica sprezzante nei confronti della “cosiddetta critica stilistica”, che viene messa in relazione al metodo Montessori e appunto alla psicoanalisi.

Marca da obsessão na e pela escritura. Incluindo, ainda que de maneira menos acentuada, os primeiros livros em que experimenta, muito via digestão da poesia de Murilo Mendes e de Carlos Drummond de Andrade, certo surrealismo – como é o caso do livro Pedra do sono e do poema dramático Os três mal amados – passando pelo auge do seu construtivismo – no caso de O engenheiro e de Psicologia da composição – a poesia do poeta pernambucano trabalha essa obsessão colocando em jogo pelo menos dois grandes fantasmas: o nordeste brasileiro e o sul espanhol. Essas imagens se desdobram em outras imagens – a pedra, a seca, a plantação de cana, os cemitérios do nordeste e, ao mesmo tempo, correspondem à dança flamenca, ao canto à palo-seco, à tauromaquia sevilhanas.

Morte e luto são analisados também em textos de Sigmund Freud e Georges Didi-Huberman, por onde é possível reconhecer traços da diaforologia barthesiana, traduzível como uma “ciência das sutilezas”. Não obstante, alguns aspectos da poesia e da fortuna crítica a respeito da obra de Eucanaã Ferraz são problematizados, para que se reconheça em cada momento particular a margem entre a presença da delicadeza (para Barthes: a perversão sutil no interior da língua e os signos de um discurso arrogante ou meramente ornamentais. Por fim, defende-se que a delicadeza é o próprio fundamento da poesia, na medida em que constitui – como afirma Daniel Link – uma ética preocupada com a comunidade dos ausentes.

O ver a arquitetura pela visão da poesia reabre a possibilidade de, pela experiência estética e a ferramenta do imaginário, ser possível articular saberes, construir identidades e (reconfigurar a relação de distância entre o observador e o objeto da arte. Por intermédio da poesia nos deparamos com uma dimensão que é, antes de tudo, emotiva e sensível. Plena de afeto, a arquitetura, é sim, terreno poético. Tão indelével quanto a concretude e a materialidade do espaço físico e suas qualidades mensuráveis e físicas. O universo da poesia está disponível à leitura tanto quanto o da arquitetura. E essa releitura se reveste de importância quando consideramos a necessidade de, na contemporaneidade, colocarmo-nos como sujeitos na história, diante de uma produção artística em um mundo globalizado, mas não universal.

While angioedema due to isotretionin has been described previously, this is the first description of angiodema due to acitretin. We report two uncommon cases of palpebral and labial angiodema due to retinoids, by acitretin and oral isotretinoin respectively: a 48-year-old man with psoriasis and a 24-year-old woman with severe acne resistant to antibiotics and topical drugs. In both cases the reaction persisted through-out treatment with these drugs, but resolved quickly after discontinuation.

Pode ser uma reação alérgica, mediada por IgE, ou não-alérgica, com apresentações clínicas semelhantes. Angioedema por isotretinoína já foi relatado, mas não por acitretina. Relatamos dois casos, uma com angioedema palpebral e um labial, por acitretina e isotretinoína, respectivamente: um paciente de 48 anos com psoríase e uma paciente de 24 anos com acne resistente à terapia convencional.

Na ampla tarefa das ciências sociais, cabe-lhe atribuir que trate os indivíduos como capazes de serem construtores e partícipes da História. Esta é uma tarefa científica, política e educativa de quem assim procede optando pelo uso da História Oral. Deve ficar claro que aqui nos atemos ao emprego da metodologia e não à apresentação dos resultados de uma pesquisa.

    Full Text Available Eduardo Dall’Alba (1963-2013 ha pubblicato oltre dieci libri, tra saggi e poesia, ed ha ricevuto diversi premi. Appartiene ad una famiglia di emigranti veneti stabilitosi del Rio Grande do Sul alla fine dell’Ottocento. È un profondo conoscitore della letteratura italiana, studioso di Dante, Eduardo è riuscito a fondere le due culture e identità, quella brasiliana a quella italiana. Qui desidero enfatizzare come la poesia di quest’autore recupera il vissuto rimosso e senza voce di migliaia di italiani emigrati al sud del Brasile, con il loro dolore e la loro frustrazione per aver abbandonato la propria terra, la nostalgia e l’ossessione di autosufficienza economica che si otteneva tramite il lavoro incessante di tutti i componenti della famiglia, il cui dialetto – o dialetti – erano visti quale elemento agglutinante delle prime comunità.

    Full Text Available As representações da natureza variam conforme os discursos e as formas artísticas. Ao longo da história literária, elas têm sido predominantemente orientadas por interesses diversos, tais como científicos, comerciais, políticos, assim como expressivos. De um polo a outro, sua representação tem servido à divulgação de suas riquezas (como aconteceu na literatura de viagem do período colonial, à consolidação de uma identidade nacional e/ou regional (o que ocorre nas literaturas do romantismo e do modernismo, assim como do regionalismo, à afirmação das teses sobre o determinismo biológico no comportamento humano (o que ocorre na literatura do realismo/naturalismo, ou à expressão da subjetividade, seja de personagens ou de sujeitos líricos (o que ocorre especialmente na literatura romântico-simbolista, orientando-se, em cada caso, por diferentes visões de mundo. Recentemente, acompanhando o surgimento de uma consciência ecológica que se contrapõe às ideologias que a consideram apenas como recurso natural a ser explorado, a natureza tem sido valorizada per si, o que não exclui sua relação com a subjetividade que a representa e para a qual ela é importante. Para discutir essa questão segundo o ponto de vista crítico do ecofeminismo, analisamos os poemas do seu livro Que transpõe o halo com o intuito de demonstrar a importância da natureza na construção de uma identidade feminina na obra em questão.

MÉTODOS: Foram estudadas 65 crianças com sintomas atribuídos à ingestão do leite de vaca. A definição diagnóstica ocorreu após teste de desencadeamento alimentar oral aberto, realizado no mínimo 15 dias após dieta de exclusão e ausência de sintomas, com período de observação de até 4 semanas após o teste. Considerou-se caso (alergia à proteína do leite de vaca positiva; n = 35 criança com reaparecimento do sintoma que motivou a realização do teste, e comparação (alergia à proteína do leite de vaca negativa; n = 30 aquela sem sintomas após o período de observação do teste. RESULTADOS: A mediana de idade foi 5 meses (P 25-75% 2-9 meses no grupo caso e 7 meses (P 25-75% 4-11 meses no grupo comparação (p = 0,05. O teste não confirmou alergia à proteína do leite de vaca em 46,8% dos pacientes com sintomas atribuídos à ingestão de leite de vaca. Reação tardia ocorreu em 77,1% (27/35 dos casos com teste positivo, sendo 18/27 na primeira, 3/27 na segunda e 6/27 na terceira semana de observação. Encontrou-se associação estatística significante entre manifestações cutâneas e teste positivo (p = 0,04, mas não com sintomas digestivos e respiratórios. CONCLUSÃO: Os resultados corroboram a necessidade do teste de desencadeamento alimentar oral para determinar os pacientes que realmente têm alergia à proteína do leite de vaca e se beneficiarão com dieta de exclusão de leite de vaca.

    A distinção fonética x fonologia é decisiva no estudo da prosódia latina, pois propicia o estudo dos versos dessa língua sem recurso à pronúncia em voz alta dos seus fonemas. Assim, para que o a inicial da Eneida cumpra seu papel, basta contar-se com que ele contém, por sua abertura máxima, todas as vogais da língua. O tempo, como unidade da língua, é importante na constituição do verso latino. Mas é preciso insistir em que tempo, aí, não é sílaba, portanto o verso latino t em constituição diferente do verso em idiomas modernos. Por isso, em latim, versos são realidade em grande parte psíquica, pouco importando se, para os romanos, eram também física. Só no conceito greimasiano de efeito de ou dos sentidos é que se tem um indicador seguro para a leitura de versos latinos.

    Full Text Available Carlos Drummond de Andrade, em A Rosa do Povo (1945 articula, por meio da palavra e da criação de um “eu” lírico habitante de um mundo em guerra, a construção de uma imagem, imbuída de teor histórico, do Brasil dos anos finais da 2ª guerra mundial. Os versos traduzem a experiência do Drummond gauche, angustiado pelos problemas do seu tempo, em que a individualidade advinda da fragmentação do homem moderno é marca do conflito entre o “eu” lírico e o mundo. O poeta descreve de forma melancólica a degeneração das coisas e dos homens, em meio à consciência paralisante e a falta de perspectivas. A força que emerge do símbolo da rosa respalda o acento poético do Itabirano: a destruição dos valores provocados pela morte e pelo derramar de sangue contrasta com o brotar da flor no asfalto.  Do chão forrado de cadáveres, emerge uma rosa, numa representação da resistência humana.

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this work is to think about two poems of the book Grupo Escolar (1974 by Antônio Carlos de Brito (1944-1987, known inside the Brazilian cultural universe as Cacaso. Despite being the second book by Cacaso, Grupo Escolar was the fi rst to be published independently, in the traditional editorial system, through Frenesi, a poetry collection pro Rio de Janeiro. It is interesting to realize that this book demands from the author a new poetical lettering, in agreement with the “alchemist days”. By the analysis of the poems chosen – “O futuro já chegou” and “Aquarela” – it’s possible to see how they dialogue with the production moment, in different ways. Both can be read as symptoms of a traumatic reality. Although, if in the fi rst poem we face a reference poetry based on extreme literality and on “reality excess”, in the second we face the sense mixtures modulations of allegory. Keywords: Cacaso. Grupo Escolar. 1974. O futuro já chegou. Aquarela. Dictatorship. O objetivo deste trabalho é refl etir sobre dois poemas do livro Grupo Escolar (1974, de Antônio Carlos de Brito (1944-1987, mais conhecido pelo pseudônimo Cacaso no universo cultural brasileiro. Apesar de ter sido o segundo livro de Cacaso, Grupo Escolar foi o primeiro a ser publicado de forma independente, à margem do sistema editorial tradicional, através da Frenesi, uma coleção carioca de poesia. É interessante perceber que este livro exige do autor uma nova alfabetização poética, mais condizente com os “tempos de alquimia”. Demonstraremos, por meio da análise dos poemas escolhidos – “O futuro já chegou” e “Aquarela” – como dialogam com o momento de produção, de diferentes formas. Ambos podem ser lidos como sintomas de uma realidade traumática.

Para Tucídides, a narrativa dos fatos da Guerra do Peloponeso nada tinha a ver com a prática literária e laudatória dos fatos passados. A objetividade para a qual chama a atenção provinha da observação dos fatos contemporâneos, que caracterizava a prática discursiva por oposição à retórica literária dos mitos.

Ao longo deste trabalho, busca-se, então, refletir acerca das atividades de leitura e escrita em sala de aula, com ênfase na importância dos conhecimentos teóricos sobre gêneros textuais e a produção de texto para a organização de uma didática consciente. E, assim, realizar melhores intervenções no processo de ensino-aprendizagem, o que caracteriza o método de investigação denominado pesquisa-ação, conforme Thiollent (2002 e Gressler (2003.

Foram pesquisados artigos publicados em diversas línguas, em Medline, Embase e Cochrane Library.Onze artigos envolvendo 2011 doentes preen-cheram os critérios de selecção.O tratamento com NAC consistia em terapêutica oral de 400 a 600 mg por dia sendo a duração superior a 3 meses na maioria dos estudos. Os factores de risco de exacerbação bem como a caracterização da gravidade da DPOC através do estudo funcional não foram avaliados em todos os estudos.O papel da NAC na redução do número de exacerbações foi avaliado em 9 dos 11 estudos, sendo exacerbação definida como o aumento da tosse, da expectação mucopurulenta e/ou dispneia. Os resultados mostraram que 48,5% dos doentes medicados com NAC (351 de 723 não tiveram exacerbações comparativamente com 31,2% dos doentes sob placebo (229 de 733. O benefício relativo da NAC foi de 1,56.Em 5 estudos foram usadas escalas de auto-avaliação do tratamento, sendo possível seleccionar os doentes que referiam melhoria dos seus sintomas, o que se verificou em 61,4% dos doentes medicados com NAC (286 de 466 comparativamente a 34,6% dos doentes sob placebo (160 de 462.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: a anseníase multibacilar pode causar comprometimento da mucosa oral, com ou sem lesões aparentes. Há poucos estudos que tratam deste assunto na era da multidrogaterapia. OBJETIVO: Verificar a freqüência do comprometimento da mucosa oral em pacientes de hanseníase multibacilar. CASUÍSTICA E MÉTODOS: Foi realizado um estudo transversal em vinte pacientes de hanseníase multibacilar, não-tratados, atendidos consecutivamente em Dracena, São Paulo, entre o período de 2000 e 2002. Foi realizado exame clínico completo da mucosa oral. Os pacientes foram submetidos a biópsias na mucosa jugal, na língua e no palato mole, em alteração ou em pontos pré-estabelecidos. Os cortes foram corados pelas técnicas da hematoxilina-eosina e Ziehl-Neelsen. O encontro de granuloma e bacilos álcool-ácido-resistentes ao exame histopatológico determinou o comprometimento específico. RESULTADOS: O estudo envolveu 19 pacientes multibacilares com tempo médio de evolução de 2,5 anos. Ocorreu comprometimento histopatológico específico em apenas um paciente virchowiano, com mucosa oral clinicamente normal, na língua e no palato mole. CONCLUSÕES: 1. Alteração clínica na mucosa oral não implica em comprometimento pela doença, é necessário confirmação histopatológica. 2. Alterações clínicas específicas aparentes são raras. 3. A mucosa oral clinicamente normal pode exibir comprometimento histopatológico específico.INTRODUCTION: Multibacillary leprosy may involve the oral mucosa, with or without apparent lesions. There are few studies that deal with this issue in the era of multidrug therapy. AIM: To assess the frequence of oral mucosa involvement in multibacillary leprosy patients.

    Full Text Available Este artigo visa a analisar a técnica compositiva de três poemas de Carlos Drummond de Andrade, a saber: “Consideração do poema” “Procura de poesia” e “Canto ao homem do povo Charlie Chaplin”, presentes em A rosa do povo, escrito entre 1943 a 1945. Os dois primeiros poemas mereceram de diferentes críticos análises diversas. Alguns assumem posições divergentes, reconhecendo-se no primeiro a função predominante da linguagem, enquanto o outro estaria mais atrelado ao compromisso social. Outras tendências críticas defendem que os dois poemas compõem um todo coerente, estando, ambos, erigidos de acordo com a concepção dialética de gênero lírico. Propõe-se, também, a discutir as relações entre poesia e cinema, entendendo-os como formas de representação cultural de um tempo histórico. O “Canto ao homem do povo Charlie Chaplin” estabelece um diálogo com seu tempo, abordando temas como a luta pela sobrevivência, o protesto contra a fome e a brutalidade dos tempos modernos.

    Full Text Available Staphylococcus spp are not usually isolated from the oral cavity, and when this occurs, they are considered to belong to the transitory microbiota. Individuals with periodontal disease represent possible reservoirs of these opportunistic bacteria in the oral cavity. The use of antibiotics for treatment of periodontal disease or other infections may predispose to the increase of the number of Staphylococcus spp. in the oral cavity. These microorganisms easily become resistant to antibiotics, and may result in superinfection. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the presence of Staphylococcus spp. in the oral cavity and in periodontal pockets of patients with chronic periodontitis, identify the isolates and verify the relationship between the presence of Staphylococcus spp. in the oral cavity and presence of periodontal pockets. The study included eighty-eight patients, 25-60 years of age, with chronic periodontitis, and at least two sites with probing depth > 5 mm. Individual data examination was assessed. Then, samples were colleted from the periodontal pocket with the aid of paper tips and from the oral cavity through mouth rinses. Out of the total of patients, 37.50% presented Staphylococcus spp. in the periodontal pocket and 61.36% in the oral cavity, 27.27% presented the bacteria in both sites. S. epidermidis was the most prevalent specie in the periodontal pocket (15.9% and oral cavity (27.27%. The occurrence of higher proportions of nonresident's microorganisms in subgingival samples and oral sites may represent significant problem in causing and maintaining periodontal infections.Staphylococcus spp. não são usualmente isolados a partir da cavidade bucal. Quando presentes, são considerados pertencentes à microbiota transitória. Indivíduos que apresentam doença periodontal representam possíveis reservatórios dessas bactérias oportunistas na cavidade bucal. O uso de antibióticos para o tratamento da doença periodontal ou

    Full Text Available Objetivando analisar a disseminação das artes marciais chinesas no Brasil optamos por entrevistar mestres pioneiros que imigraram da China trazendo na bagagem o "Kung Fu". Ao fazer esta opção em nossa dissertação, tomamos contato com um instrumental que é o uso de entrevistas na perspectiva da História Oral. Remexer a memória, aceitar os silêncios, respeitar o conhecimento construído e desconstruir outros, por si só já se mostram tarefas bastante árduas. Escutar estes mestres nos levou, mesmo que superficialmente, a tentar compreender aspectos da cultura chinesa sob os quais os mestres e o próprio "Kung Fu" se fundamentaram. Entender as lacunas, as dificuldades e as possibilidades do uso da História Oral como ferramenta metodológica é o que neste artigo buscamos, na perspectiva de contribuir com análises semelhantes, seja de outras práticas marciais ou mesmo de outros olhares sobre a cultura chinesa. Assim sendo, objetivamos neste artigo apontar e discutir a metodologia da História Oral e sua pertinência para o estudo das práticas marciais a partir do uso de entrevistas. Podemos, fruto da discussão apresentada, apontar a História Oral como instrumental bastante útil para a discussão das práticas marciais, considerando logicamente, as pertinências e especificidades necessárias para a adequada utilização desta metodologia de pesquisa.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: As doenças dermatológicas imunologicamente mediadas compõem diversas patologias que apresentam formas variadas de manifestação no organismo. OBJETIVO: Foi proposição desta pesquisa, estabelecer a prevalência das principais doenças dermatológicas imunologicamente mediadas que apresentam manifestação oral. MÉTODOS: Foram avaliados laudos histopatológicos de 10.292 casos arquivados no Serviço de Anatomia Patológica da Disciplina de Patologia Oral da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, no período de 1988 a 2009. Dos casos diagnosticados como algum tipo de doença em estudo, coletaram-se dados clínicos como sexo, idade, raça, sítio anatômico e sintomatologia das doenças. RESULTADOS: Do total de casos registrados, no serviço supracitado, 82 (0,8% corresponderam a doenças dermato lógicas imunologicamente mediadas com manifestação na cavidade oral. As doenças encontradas neste estudo foram: líquen plano oral, pênfigo vulgar e penfigoide benigno das membranas mucosas, sendo o líquen plano oral a lesão mais prevalente, representando 68,05% dos casos analisados, dos quais 64,3% apresentavam-se em mu lheres, sendo a mucosa jugal o sítio anatômico mais acometido (46,8%. CONCLUSÃO: A ocorrência de doenças dermatológicas imunologicamente mediadas que apresentam manifestação oral ainda é um fato incomum, semelhante ao observado na maioria das regiões mundiais. No entanto, a busca pelo diagnóstico precoce é um requisito essencial para a condução do tratamento dessas doenças, tendo em vista o possível comprometimento sistêmico do organismo nos pacientes.BACKGROUND: Immune-mediated skin diseases encompass a variety of pathologies that present in different forms in the body.

    alteração da fisiologia da deglutição. Existe correlação funcional entre os estágios de organização e ejeção oral. A organização oral influiu não só na qualidade da ejeção oral mas também na da dinâmica da fase faríngea.BACKGROUND: The pharyngeal phase of swallowing has received more attention than oral phase although they are presumably interdependent. AIMS: 1. to evaluate, through the videofluoroscopic method, the oral phase of swallowing in order to observe the characteristics organization of the liquid bolus in healthy volunteers and the variations of this organization in exams of patient with dysphagia; 2. to establish the functional interrelation between both organization and ejection stages; 3. to verify the presence (or absence of interference of the oral phase over the pharyngeal phase. CASUISTIC AND METHOD: Videofluoroscopic assessment has been performed in patients with stroke (15, patients with Parkinson disease (15 and in health volunteers (14. All of the studied individuals were submitted to the swallowing videofluoroscopic evaluation following protocol described by Junqueira and Costa. We privileged the incidence in right profile with middle of liquid contrast (solution of barium sulfate. RESULTS: According to the intra-oral organization of the contrasted bolus, we could classify the oral organization as: 1. closed, 2. open, that can be subdivided in open "anterior restricted" and "open expanded", 3. prolonged, and 4. unstable. The ejection can be defined as: 1. appropriate, 2. lentify, and 3. in two times. The correlation among the oral dynamics acted by the organization and pharyngeal phases can be noticed as: 1. appropriate, 2. adapted, and 3. altered. The organization and ejection types as well as the observed correlations are shown with statistics significance. CONCLUSIONS: The closed organization type was the one characterized as normal. The "open expanded", "prolonged" and "unstable" organization type can be associated with

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: O cisto linfoepitelial oral é uma lesão incomum, assintomática e de pequenas dimensões, geralmente descoberto durante exames de rotina da cavidade bucal. OBJETIVO: Relatar quatro casos de cisto linfoepitelial oral, confrontando seus aspectos com aqueles reportados em outros 119 casos publicados na literatura. RELATO DOS CASOS: Três casos em mulheres, com idade entre 16 e 23 anos, e um caso em homem, com 45 anos, caracterizados por nódulos assintomáticos, de pequenas dimensões e coloração variando do branco ao amarelado. Dois casos estavam localizados na superfície ventral da língua, um em assoalho bucal e outro em orofaringe. Histologicamente, as lesões revelaram cavidade cística contendo quantidade variável de células epiteliais descamadas, revestida por epitélio pavimentoso estratificado, predominantemente paraceratinizado, de interface plana com o tecido conjuntivo. A cápsula fibrosa exibiu um denso infiltrado linfocítico, com identificação de centros germinativos em apenas dois casos. CONCLUSÃO: A análise conjunta dos casos apresentados neste trabalho e de outros 119 casos relatados na literatura revela que os cistos linfoepiteliais orais exibem predileção pelo gênero masculino, com ápice de incidência na terceira década de vida. Em geral, essas lesões se apresentam como pequenos nódulos assintomáticos localizados no assoalho bucal. Histologicamente, a maioria dos casos revela epitélio cístico com padrão de maturação paraceratinizado e exibe centros germinativos na cápsula fibrosa.INTRODUCTION: The oral lymphoepithelial cyst is a rare, asymptomatic lesion with small dimensions, commonly discovered during routine examination of the oral cavity.

    Full Text Available La poesia de Rosselló-Pòrcel és una obra de dimensió limitada, però d’una gran diversitat. En els últims anys s’ha estudiat amb precisió la presència d’un llegat postsimbolista. En aquest article s’analitza un aspecte menystingut: el sentit de la presència de mons urbans en la poesia de Rosselló-Pòrcel. El poeta experimenta amb un nou concepte de la metàfora i incorpora els elements que componen l’escenari urbà nomenats amb ajuda d’un lèxic despullat del tabú del prosaisme. L’adjectivació, a més, farà possible unir l’experiència del que és descriptiu amb la desrealització de l’objecte contemplat. L’anàlisi detinguda de tres poemes complementa la reflexió. Rosselló-Pòrcel’s poetry is a work of limited extension, but of great diversity. In recent years critics have studied with precision the presence of a post-symbolist legacy. In this article I take a look at an undervalued aspect of it: the meaning and uses of urban worlds in his poetry. The poet experimented with a new concept of metaphor and incorporates elements from the urban scene using a lexicon that includes prosaic elements. Adjectives make possible the combination of description with object contemplation. The thorough analysis of three poems completes the reevaluation.

    Full Text Available O pênfigo vulgar é uma doença mucocutânea, imunomediada, caracterizada por lesões vesiculobolhosas, enquanto a infecção pelo vírus herpes simples (HSV é comum na cavidade oral. A coexistência das duas doenças tem sido relatada por alguns autores. Este artigo relata o caso de um paciente com múltiplas lesões em várias áreas da mucosa oral, cujo procedimento foi raspagem e biópsia incisional, que resultou no diagnóstico de pênfigo vulgar associado à infecção pelo HSV. Destaca-se a inusitada associação das doenças e a identificação citopatológica de duas populações celulares com aspectos morfológicos distintos e característicos, capazes de determinar o correto diagnóstico, sendo fundamental para a conduta e terapêutica adequada.Pemphigus vulgaris is an autoimmune mucocutaneous disease, characterized by vesiculobullous lesions. Herpes simplex virus (HSV infection is common in the oral cavity and the coexistence of pemphigus vulgaris and HSV infection has been reported by some authors. In this work, we report a case of a patient with multiple lesions involving several areas of the oral mucous membrane. Based on scraping cytology and incisional biopsy findings, the diagnosis was pemphigus vulgaris associated with HSV infection. We call attention to the uncommon association of both diseases and the cytological identification of two cell populations with different and characteristic morphological aspects, able enough to establish the correct diagnosis and define an appropriate therapeutic approach.

    Renan Pires Cornette

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available One of the characteristics of the poetry of José Paulo Paes is the recuperation of classical traditional forms adjusting the models of the past to his personal diction by using critical dislocation. This occurs with the epithalamium, a lyrical composition that was originally practiced by the Greeks in honor of newlyweds. Amongst the Romans it took on a pornographic character and was ratified traditionally by self-seeking flattery. This article proposes to analyze three epithalamiums written by the poet, seeking to show the traces of difference inserted by the poet in this classical lyric form.

    Full Text Available Resumo Introdução O uso da laserterapia em pacientes oncológicos com mucosite oral tem efeitos biológicos por meio de processos fotofísicos e bioquímicos que aumentam o metabolismo celular, estimulando a atividade mitocondrial, atuando como analgésicos, anti-inflamatórios e reparadores da lesão da mucosa. Objetivo Averiguar a qualidade de vida dos pacientes com mucosite oral induzida pelos tratamentos antineoplásicos previamente à aplicação de laserterapia e posterior à regressão das lesões orais. Metodologia Trata-se de um ensaio quase-experimental com 18 pacientes oncológicos em atendimento hospitalar que desenvolveram mucosite oral. Utilizou-se um questionário sociodemográfico e o questionário de Qualidade de Vida (UW-QOL aplicado antes das sessões com laser de baixa potência e após a regressão das lesões. Os testes estatísticos utilizados foram o teste t de Student e o teste Quiquadrado, admitindo ser significativo o p<0,05. Resultado A faixa etária mais prevalente foi entre 65 e 74 anos, etnia branca, sexo masculino, casado, frequentou o ensino fundamental, usuários do SUS e moradores de cidades diversas. O diagnóstico oncológico mais frequente foi a Leucemia aguda, sendo a quimioterapia o tratamento em 100% dos casos e em 50%, a radioterapia. A média dos escores de qualidade de vida dos pacientes foi 456,2, anterior ao início do tratamento com laserterapia, e 678,3, posterior à intervenção. Conclusão A qualidade de vida melhorou após as sessões de laserterapia, sendo que as mudanças mais significativas ocorreram nos domínios ligados à dor, aparência, deglutição, mastigação, fala, paladar e salivação, sendo o laser de baixa potência uma ferramenta adequada no manejo da mucosite oral.

Elas não são discutidas como instâncias separadas, mas, ao contrário, serão tomadas como práticas de uma mesma teoria/pensamento sobre a arte. A crítica de poesia contemporânea no Brasil tem que enfrentar alguns desafios propostos pelo modo de se produzir poesia no presente. No lugar de impor as mesmas exigências e cobranças das práticas críticas idealistas e utópicas à poesia e de responder com paráfrases de velhos debates aos desafios do presente, a crítica tem diante de si a poesia a tarefa de também tentar elaborar sentidos para a cultura do contemporâneo, o que implica sempre uma relação de interpretação com o passado e com a tradição. Longe de ser diagnosticado como um processo de "retradicionalização", "formalização" e "esteticização" dos problemas da cultura, a produção de poesia produz uma análise do tempo presente tão ou mais eficaz do que vem atribuindo-lhe certos setores da crítica.Este artículo se propone a discutir sobre la producción poética y su crítica, sobre la historia de la poesía y de su crítica.

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available O artigo propõe a inclusão de canções da música popular brasileira em disciplinas que se voltam para o estudo da Língua e da Literatura, como estratégia para aproximar os jovens da poesia. Canções, por sua forma de circulação, invadem o mundo dos jovens e a eles apresentam características formais da poesia lírica, além de traduzir emoções e sentimentos coletivos. Sob tal ângulo, canção e poesia não se distinguem por seus componentes estruturais, visto que ambas as modalidades podem ser dotadas de atributos estéticos. Esse ponto de vista é respaldado, no artigo, pelo posicionamento de estudiosos como Marisa Lajolo, Salete de Almeida Cara, Salvatore D’Onofrio e pela exposição da origem da poesia e de sua evolução, as quais comprovam que traços sonoros estão presentes em poemas contemporâneos, ainda que o registro da palavra escrita tenha provocado a ruptura entre a arte poética e a música. Para comprovar a legitimidade da convergência de poemas e de canções, os autores do artigo analisam e interpretam textos pertencentes a ambos os gêneros, neles evidenciando elementos em comum, como a exploração dos recursos expressivos da linguagem, que invocam a participação do receptor no deciframento de suas significações, e reflexões sobre a condição humana e sobre suas circunstâncias. Portanto, os autores afirmam que razões de ordem estética e sociocultural justificam a inclusão de canções no âmbito escolar, uma vez que, assim como poemas, elas concretizam a finalidade da arte de conferir palavras aos sentimentos humanos, enquanto reafirmam o potencial expressivo da linguagem lírica.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho objetiva discutir o papel que os jogos de linguagem possuem no desenvolvimento de gêneros textuais orais, também responsáveis pela inserção da criança em práticas letradas. Para tanto, discutiremos as noções de jogos de linguagem e de gêneros textuais, buscando identificar nesses fenômenos as diversas vias de acesso ao letramento como processo multidimensional. Com isso, adotaremos uma investigação de cunho interpretativista, observando dados referentes a um corpus coletado em sala de aula da Educação Infantil, com crianças na faixa etária de quatro anos de idade. Nossos resultados apontam a presença de jogos de linguagem nos gêneros orais que se apresentam em sala de aula. Isso nos leva a crer que as práticas letradas demandam o uso de jogos de linguagem, uma vez que eles viabilizam a diversidade de formas de utilização da língua.

    Full Text Available A versão do poema épico indiano Bhagavad-Gita do sânscrito para o latim, realizada por August von Schlegel, gerou controvérsia no início do século XIX, nos anos que se seguiram a 1823, quando foi publicada. O trabalho foi criticado pelo sanscritólogo francês S. A. Langlois e criteriosamente estudado por Wilhelm von Humboldt, que não lhe poupou elogios. O filósofo Georg W. F. Hegel baseou-se, por sua vez, no estudo de Humboldt, principalmente para questionar a afirmação de Humboldt e de Schlegel, de que o texto traduzido seria a única poesia antiga com autêntico conteúdo filosófico, e também para fazer algumas observações tradutológicas. Essa polêmica erudita foi enriquecida posteriormente com as opiniões de autores ingleses como H. Th. Colebrooke, também especialista em sânscrito, e Charles Wilkins, que fizera a primeira tradução da Bhagavad-Gita para a língua inglesa, em 1784. Esse debate inspiraria então as reflexões de August von Schlegel sobre tradução, que ele escreveu em 1826, ou seja, 3 anos após a sua primeira tradução da Bhagavad-Gita. Em 1846, um ano após sua morte, é publicada uma segunda versão que ele havia feito desse mesmo poema.

Em sua primeira etapa, a investigação buscou (a verificar como os participantes da pesquisa vivenciavam o erro e a correção, (b descrever as principais características das interlínguas dos aprendizes naquele momento. Na segunda etapa do trabalho, desenvolveu-se uma proposta de intervenção e tratamento dos erros mais recorrentes, por meio da qual se pretendia implementar ações pedagógicas com foco na forma (FonF que promovessem a negociação de determinados aspectos lingüísticos. Os dados foram coletados por meio de entrevistas, questionários, gravações audiovisuais, observações das aulas, notas de campo transformadas em diários, sessões de visionamento com os aprendizes e de discussão com a professora participante, num processo cíclico e contínuo, a fim de se embasarem as decisões referentes ao processo interventivo. Verificou-se que os movimentos corretivos empregados para promover momentos de negociação da forma se mostraram uma importante ferramenta no tratamento dos erros por ajudarem os aprendizes a perceberem lacunas em suas interlínguas e a se esforçarem para refazer suas produções consideradas imprecisas. Nesse esforço, observou-se a importância do papel do professor ao fornecer os andaimes necessários para que cada aprendiz pudesse se monitorar.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo apresenta o projeto de pesquisa do autor para o Mestrado Profissional em Artes da UFU, em desenvolvimento na E.E. Dom José Gaspar de Araxá MG. A escola tem em mãos um elemento de agregação de valores, de desenvolvimento intelectual e cultural do aluno. Os espaços escolares podem se transformar em únicos ou diferenciados da propagação da cultura nas cidades. Um espaço onde a cultura pode e deve ser trabalhada de forma a dar ao aluno um desenvolvimento saudável e a despertar suas capacidades para a expressão e divulgação das ideias através da arte. O teatro proporciona ao aluno em sua vida estudantil desenvolvimento de suas potencialidades, tanto físico como psico afetivo e social. Permitir ao aluno acesso a textos literários de gêneros diversos e conhecimento da dramaturgia brasileira e da arte fora do contexto midiático apresentado pelos meios de comunicação de massa é uma forma de proporcionar no ensino médio uma vivência artística através da participação na construção de textos teatrais e literários, de forma escrita, interpretada, performática, dialogada ou cantada. O desenvolvimento da pesquisa e projetos com os professores de língua portuguesa com o intuito de oferecer oficinas teatrais e de leitura dramática para que o aluno tenha prazer em ler e interpretar falas e personagens. Essa integração fortalece a rede de interdisciplinaridade na escola e proporciona ao aluno o relacionar-se com a arte e vivenciar experiências que se entrelaçam. Assim, o objeto dessa pesquisa é mostrar a eles uma visão além da leitura em sala de aula, dar uma vivência e um conhecimento artístico e participativo da interpretação literária através do teatro. Portanto, neste espaço transformador, que é e deve ser a escola, a arte enreda a formação de alunos que se desenvolvem integralmente através das práticas corporais, interpretativas e de expressão.

  3. PURA POESIA, AUTOBIOGRAFIA E AUTOFICÇÃO EM MANUEL BANDEIRA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Aída Maria Jorge Ribeiro

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available O presente artigo visa a descobrir, sobretudo, aplicações para os conceitos de autobiografia e autoficção, respectivamente, apresentados em textos de crítica literária dos escritores Philippe Lejeune e Serge Doubrovsky, a partir da leitura da biografia literária de Manuel Bandeira, Itinerário de Pasárgada (1967. Segundo os críticos em questão, para que seus respectivos conceitos sejam aplicados é preciso haver coincidência entre autor, narrador e personagem. Estabelece-se um contrato. Entenderemos, assim, que toda biografia, sendo uma linguagem também artística, trairia a realidade, pelos seus esquecimentos, supressões e omissões. A possibilidade de recortes faria, então, de toda autobiografia uma autoficção. Em Itinerário de Pasárgada, encontramos uma coincidência entre autor, narrador e personagem, uma biografia, que, em princípio, possui um compromisso com a verdade, com o real, mas que é adjetivada por um elemento fictício: de Pasárgada. Itinerário de Pasárgada, de Manuel Bandeira, é considerada a primeira biografia estritamente literária que se publica no Brasil. Ora, biografia (real literária (ficção? O “eu – poético” vai-se esfacelando pela percepção do leitor que encontra as incoerências, as lacunas de uma possível realidade. Bandeira era realmente simples, pessimista e doente? Ou será que seus versos, independentemente de tais dados serem reais ou não, parecem penetrantes, sublimes em sua simplicidade? Muitas vezes, pela impossibilidade de comprovação de dados biográficos - e para não tirarmos o poder de transformação, de encenação, de ficcionalização, de literário do poema - não seria ideal interpretarmos a obra sem tais aportes? Ficção, realidade, cada vez mais juntas, na carência de verdades e ilusões.

Procuramos ainda identificar as reações dos aprendizes ao feedback corretivo oral recebido pela professora e/ou pelo colega no contexto formal de ensino-aprendizagem de inglês. Os resultados demonstram que os aprendizes apresentam sentimentos distintos quanto à correção, estando relacionados diretamente às crenças destes e que isso pode influenciar diretamente no sucesso ou no fracasso em sua caminhada para a aprendizagem e para sua atuação profissional.   Palavras-chave: Emoções. Língua estrangeira. Língua inglesa. Feedback corretivo oral. Teoria sociocultural.   Abstract In this article we present an analysis of emotions in a classroom teaching setting as well the relation that can be established between the oral corrective feedback and emotions, by data triangulation and how it can enhance the future teacher formation and the language teaching and learning. The article also tries to identify learners` reaction to the oral corrective feedback given by the teacher or by their peer in the english classroom setting. The results show that learners present different feelings regarding the corrective feedback and this can be directly related to their beliefs. These results can also have an effect on the success or failure of learners` learning and professional development. Keywords: Emotions. Foreign language. English language. Oral corrective feedback.

A partir de diagnósticos baseados na cultura oral de alunos que apresentavam dificuldades de aprendizagem de leitura mesmo após três ou quatro anos de escolarização, procurou-se criar, ministrar e monitorar um programa de ensino baseado na transição entre cultura oral e cultura escrita. Trata-se de uma pesquisa de natureza qualitativa, cuja preocupação é lidar com a heterogeneidade da sala de aula em seu processo e em sua complexidade.

    Full Text Available Reflexões sobre a recepção teórica ao gênero épico através dos tempos, com ênfase na contradição entre uma visão conservadora, de base aristotélica, que entende o épico como esgotado e a crescente produção de poemas épicos que, simultaneamente, dialogam com a tradição épica e contrariam alguns de seus aspectos mais conhecidos, tais como a inalterabilidade de ânimo e a presença de elementos estruturais como a invocação, a proposição e a divisão em cantos. O objetivo desta abordagem é comprovar a necessidade de a teoria literária estar em constante processo de atualização, visto ser, em termos da presença da literatura nas escolas e universidades, instrumento importante para um trabalho consistente com o texto literário. Além disso, pretende-se, aqui, destacar como o gênero épico impôs, através de suas manifestações, a própria revisão da teoria épica. Para tais discussões, utilizam-se, como repertório teórico, considerações de Aristóteles, Staiger, Leo Pollmann, Anazildo Vasconcelos da Silva, Saulo Neiva, Christina Ramalho, entre outros.

The sample consisted of 90 children, aged up to 4 years old, outpatients of the University Hospital of the Rio de Janeiro State University. The examinations were carried out in a dental office by a single trained examiner who was aided by an assistant. The parents answered a structured questionnaire about oral hygiene methods and frequency. Two biofilm indices, one simplified (BF1 and the other conventional (BF2, were used. BF1 classifies biofilm as absent, thin or thick, in anterior and/or posterior teeth, and provides a score for the patient, whereas BF2 classifies biofilm as absent or present, provides scores for three surfaces of each tooth and the final score is the percentage of tooth surfaces with biofilm. More than half of the parents (51 - 56.7% reported they cleaned their child's teeth at least twice a day, while 7 (7.8% had never cleaned their child's teeth.

    Full Text Available Nas últimas décadas, o tema “literatura e identidade” tem ganhado maior notoriedade nos espaços de produção literários e acadêmicos. Isso inclui a renovação e o papel da nova poesia do século XX, em que se destaca o papel da poesia identitária. Vozes dos grupos excluídos da literatura utilizam-na como forma e função social de denúncia e apresentação das temáticas que revelam os preconceitos, lutas, anseios e percalços de quem está posto à margem das ordens estabelecidas. Nesse âmbito, empreendemos neste trabalho a leitura de alguns poemas do livro Eu, mulher negra, resisto (1988 da escritora afro-brasileira Alzira Rufino. Para tanto, percorremos vieses pelos quais a própria poesia da autora nos guiou, como o tema da literatura afro-brasileira, as relações identitárias, a memória negra e os elementos da cultura afro-brasileira. Como arcabouço teórico utilizamos autores como Bhabha (2010, Fanon (2008, Du Bois (1999, Munanga (1988, dentre outros, a fim de embasar a presente discussão.Palavras-chave: Literatura Afro-Brasileira.

    Full Text Available The effects of ethanol alone on the oral mucosa are still poorly understood, especially because there are few non-smoking chronic consumers of alcoholic beverages. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of micronucleus, abnormal nucleus/cytoplasm ratio, pyknosis, karyorrhexis and karyolysis in exfoliated cells from the buccal mucosa and from the lateral border of the tongue in 36 non-smoker alcoholics (ethanol group and 18 non-smokers and non-drinkers (control group. The Papanicolaou method was used. Since alcoholics generally have hepatobiliary involvement, the association between serum gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT and some of the analyzed oral mucosa alterations was also investigated. The ethanol group showed a significant increase in the frequency of all alterations analyzed in the tongue cells when compared with the control group (p 0.05; Mann-Whitney. In the ethanol group, the correlation between serum GGT and the frequency of micronucleus and abnormal nucleus/cytoplasm ratio in oral mucosa cells was not significant (p > 0.05; Spearman. In conclusion, chronic exposure to ethanol may be associated with carcinogenic cytologic changes in the oral mucosa, even in the absence of tobacco smoking. These alterations were not correlated with hepatobiliary injury.Os efeitos do etanol isoladamente sobre a mucosa bucal permanecem pouco esclarecidos, sobretudo devido ao baixo número de não-fumantes consumidores crônicos de bebidas alcoólicas.

    Full Text Available A respiração oral é um sintoma freqüente na infância. A síndrome do respirador oral caracteriza-se por cansaço freqüente, sonolência diurna, adinamia, baixo apetite, enurese noturna e até déficit de aprendizado e atenção. Entretanto este sintoma apresenta diversas causas. Faz-se necessário, portanto, esclarecer detalhes sobre estes aspectos clínicos de acordo com suas causas. OBJETIVO: Comparar os achados de sonolência diurna, cefaléia, agitação noturna, enurese, problemas escolares e bruxismo em indivíduos com respiração oral; de acordo com os seguintes diagnósticos: rinite alérgica, hiperplasia adenoideana, hiperplasia adenoamigdaliana. FORMA DE ESTUDO: Estudo de coorte transversal. MATERIAL E MÉTODO: Estudo prospectivo com 142 pacientes de 2 a 16 anos, classificados em três grupos: rinite alérgica, hiperplasia adenoideana isolada e hiperplasia adenoamigdaliana. Os responsáveis dos pacientes responderam a questionário padronizado sobre os sintomas noturnos para caracterização da presença de apnéia do sono e sobre os aspectos estudados: cefaléia matinal, desempenho escolar e atenção, sonolência diurna, agitação noturna, enurese, bruxismo. RESULTADOS: A respiração oral é mais freqüente em meninos. Crianças com hiperplasia adenoamigdaliana são mais jovens. Este grupo apresenta maior freqüência de roncos e apnéia do sono, assim como mau desempenho escolar, bruxismo, enurese e agitação noturna, sendo estes sintomas relacionados com a apnéia, diferenciando-se do grupo com rinite alérgica. Não se observou sonolência diurna e cefaléia matinal significante nos grupos estudados. CONCLUSÃO: Bruxismo, enurese, agitação noturna e cefaléia estão relacionados com a apnéia do sono, sendo mais freqüente na hiperplasia adenoamigdaliana. Assim, a investigação de apnéia do sono na criança com respiração oral é fundamental e assim como a determinação da causa da respiração oral

    Full Text Available A preocupação com a prevenção do câncer da boca e da orofaringe tem motivado diversos estudos epidemiológicos que, apesar de serem úteis em identificar fatores de risco, os indivíduos da amostra já tinham desenvolvido a neoplasia maligna. Outros estudos são conduzidos para investigar a incidência de leucoplasias e segundo tumor primário em indivíduos submetidos a um determinado agente de prevenção. Nesses estudos, entretanto, as alterações celulares são constatadas num momento avançado. Este trabalho se propõe a discutir o papel do micronúcleo, uma alteração cromossômica capaz de refletir a exposição dos indivíduos a carcinógenos, como marcador biológico intermediário na prevenção do câncer bucal e na avaliação de estudos prospectivos. The concern with the prevention of mouth and oropharynx cancer has motivated epidemiological studies that, although useful on identify risk factors, the individuals of the sample had already developed the malignant neoplasia. Other studies are lead to verify the incidence of leucoplasias and second primary tumors in individuals submitted to a specific prevention agent. In these studies, however, cellular alterations are evidenced at an advanced stage. This work is proposed to argue the role of micronuclei, a chromosomal alteration able to reflect carcinogen exposition of an individual, as intermediate biomarker in the prevention of oral cancer and in the evaluation of prospective studies.

MÉTODOS: A amostra constou de 32 RNPT, avaliados no momento da liberação para alimentação por via oral, dividida em dois grupos: Grupo 1 (G1 com idade gestacional inferior a 34 semanas; e Grupo 2 (G2 com idade gestacional igual ou superior a 34 semanas. O desempenho da sucção nutritiva foi avaliado observando-se presença ou ausência de blocos de sucção, número e tempo das sucções nos três primeiros blocos apresentados, e presença ou ausência de coordenação entre sucção/deglutição/respiração (S/D/R. Nenhum RNPT recebeu estimulação fonoaudiológica prévia. RESULTADOS: O G2 apresentou, na maioria dos RNPT, presença de coordenação entre S/D/R, além de melhor desempenho em relação ao número e ao tempo de sucção nos blocos de sucção quando comparado ao G1. Na correlação do número versus tempo de sucção por bloco, o G1 apresentou resultados aproximados aos do G2. Considerando-se a classificação quanto ao desenvolvimento intra-útero adequado para a idade gestacional, os RNPT do G1 apresentaram desempenho semelhante aos do G2, no primeiro e segundo blocos, observando-se queda, no G1, apenas no terceiro bloco. CONCLUSÃO: O melhor desempenho no padrão de sucção nutritiva foi apresentado pelo G2, sugerindo que a idade gestacional corrigida dos RNPT interfere diretamente nos resultados obtidos na avaliação da sucção nutritiva. Assim sendo, esta também é uma variável a ser considerada para liberação da alimentação por via oral.PURPOSE: To analyze the characteristics of nutritive sucking in preterm infants of different gestational ages after the medical prescription for oral feeding. METHODS: The sample comprised 32 preterm infants who were evaluated at the time they were released for oral feeding. The subjects were divided into two groups

DESCRIÇÃO DO CASO: Paciente do gênero masculino atendido no Curso de Especialização em Odontopediatria da Escola de Aperfeiçoamento Profissional da Associação Brasileira de Odontologia da seção Paraná dos cinco aos sete anos de idade. O exame clínico intrabucal inicial revelou quadro de cárie severa da infância. Durante o acompanhamento, verificou-se a erupção dos primeiros molares permanentes com a presença de defeitos de desenvolvimento de esmalte e perda de estrutura dental. À anamnese, a mãe relatou que o paciente foi portador de tetralogia de Fallot e que a cirurgia corretora foi realizada com um ano e 11 meses de idade. COMENTÁRIOS: A formação do esmalte dental dos primeiros molares permanentes ocorre a partir do primeiro mês de vida e é finalizada entre dois e quatro anos de idade. Neste caso, tal etapa coincidiu com o período anterior à cirurgia para correção da tetralogia de Fallot, fato que pode ter interferido negativamente no processo de mineralização dos primeiros molares permanentes. Os defeitos de desenvolvimento do esmalte podem levar a perda de estrutura dental, favorecendo o aparecimento da cárie dentária. Dessa forma, o odontopediatra deve realizar um diagnóstico precoce dessas alterações e intervir preventivamente para evitar a perda de tais dentes. Uma anamnese bem detalhada e a maior interação entre pediatras e odontopediatras podem proporcionar melhor acompanhamento de crianças com fatores de risco para apresentar defeitos de desenvolvimento do esmalte dentário.OBJECTIVE: To report a case of a child with tetralogy of Fallot and his oral conditions.

    A case is made for the use of 22 Na in low activities in preference to 24 Na for routine diagnostic estimation of exchangeable sodium, and is based chiefly on considerations of availability, cost and radiation dosimetry. A method in which only 37 kBq (1 μCi) 22 Na is administered orally is shown to be sufficiently accurate and to possess distinct advantages in terms of cost and convenience with a committed radiation dose no greater than that for a measurement using 24 Na.

    Full Text Available This article presents a literature review on the risk factors for oral clefts (lip and/or palate, emphasizing discussion of maternal exposure to endocrine disruptors. Several studies have identified the risk of cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption, use of anticonvulsivant drugs, and exposure to organic solvents. A protective effect has been shown for supplementation with folic acid. As with other chemicals, the risk associated with exposure to sex hormones is still obscure, although some authors describe a moderate risk level. New studies addressing this hypothesis need to be conducted, while the population exposed to these endocrine disrupters is increasing.O presente artigo apresenta uma revisão bibliográfica sobre os fatores de risco para a ocorrência de fendas lábio-palatinas descritos na literatura, destacando a discussão sobre a exposição hormonal materna durante a gravidez. Os trabalhos analisados apontam como fatores de risco o tabagismo e a ingestão de álcool, uso de anticonvulsivantes e exposições a solventes orgânicos, e como fator de proteção, a administração de ácido fólico. O risco associado à exposição hormonal, bem como a outros fatores, ainda é obscuro, embora alguns autores descrevam moderadas magnitudes de risco. Novos estudos, especificamente elaborados para testar esta hipótese, devem ser realizados à medida em que aumenta a população exposta a drogas de ação endócrina.

  10. Pathogenesis of oral FIV infection.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Craig Miller

    Full Text Available Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV is the feline analogue of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV and features many hallmarks of HIV infection and pathogenesis, including the development of concurrent oral lesions. While HIV is typically transmitted via parenteral transmucosal contact, recent studies prove that oral transmission can occur, and that saliva from infected individuals contains significant amounts of HIV RNA and DNA. While it is accepted that FIV is primarily transmitted by biting, few studies have evaluated FIV oral infection kinetics and transmission mechanisms over the last 20 years. Modern quantitative analyses applied to natural FIV oral infection could significantly further our understanding of lentiviral oral disease and transmission. We therefore characterized FIV salivary viral kinetics and antibody secretions to more fully document oral viral pathogenesis. Our results demonstrate that: (i saliva of FIV-infected cats contains infectious virus particles, FIV viral RNA at levels equivalent to circulation, and lower but significant amounts of FIV proviral DNA; (ii the ratio of FIV RNA to DNA is significantly higher in saliva than in circulation; (iii FIV viral load in oral lymphoid tissues (tonsil, lymph nodes is significantly higher than mucosal tissues (buccal mucosa, salivary gland, tongue; (iv salivary IgG antibodies increase significantly over time in FIV-infected cats, while salivary IgA levels remain static; and, (v saliva from naïve Specific Pathogen Free cats inhibits FIV growth in vitro. Collectively, these results suggest that oral lymphoid tissues serve as a site for enhanced FIV replication, resulting in accumulation of FIV particles and FIV-infected cells in saliva. Failure to induce a virus-specific oral mucosal antibody response, and/or viral capability to overcome inhibitory components in saliva may perpetuate chronic oral cavity infection. Based upon these findings, we propose a model of oral FIV pathogenesis

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Revisar a literatura acerca da indicação da terapia de reidratação oral (TRO no contexto do Setor de Emergência, buscando fatores inerentes à formação do médico, à atitude do cuidador e, finalmente, à dinâmica do próprio serviço como determinantes à sua aplicação. FONTES DE DADOS: Revisão não-sistemática da literatura incluindo artigos originais e meta-análises, nos idiomas inglês, português e espanhol, a partir das bases de dados Pubmed/Medline, Cochrane Collaboration, Lilacs e SciELO, no período de 1990 a 2008. Foram utilizados os termos "oral rehydration therapy", "diarrhea case management", "emergency department" e palavras relacionadas. SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: Realizada em local apropriado, a TRO mostrou eficácia semelhante à terapia venosa no restabelecimento do nível de hidratação em crianças com diarreia aguda no Setor de Emergência. O tempo de formado e a experiência profissional, o conhecimento e o treinamento no manejo da diarreia aguda mostraram associação à utilização da TRO. Entretanto, relatos de inconveniência de sua administração no Setor de Emergência incluem falta de espaço físico e pressão assistencial, sugerindo, ao mesmo tempo, inadequação estrutural e uso inapropriado do serviço nesses casos. A relação com o cuidador também influencia na decisão médica, com o relato de desconfiança deste quanto à eficácia da terapia sendo citado como barreira à sua indicação. CONCLUSÕES: A subutilização da TRO no Setor de Emergência está associada a fatores extrínsecos à formação médica, como questões estruturais e fatores inerentes à relação com o cuidador diante das suas expectativas quanto à terapia.OBJECTIVE: To review the literature about indication of oral rehydration therapy (ORT for children in the emergency unit, seeking factors related to medical training, caregiver's attitude and units' conditions as determinants for that practice.

    Full Text Available The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of an elemental diet (ED on the strength and on the morphology of the small bowel. Male Wistar rats were randomized to two groups to receive during 14 days either standard laboratory rat chow (N=16 or ED (N=16 containing total parenteral nutrition (TPN solution. After this period they were killed and necropsied. The small bowel was measured and weighted with and without the contents. Bursting pressure (BP was taken from the jejunum and ileum and histological sections of these two portions was performed to register the crypt depth (CD, vilus height (VH and wall width (WW. All animals significantly gain weight. The bowel of animals fed with TPN solution had significantly less weight when compared with the controls either with (9.9 ± 1.9g x 7.8 ± 1.5g, pForam submetidos a ração padrão de laboratório 16 ratos e outros 16 receberam nutrição parenteral total (NPT por via oral, durante 14 dias. Os animais de ambos os grupos ganharam peso, sem diferença estatistica. Na necrópsia retirava-se o segmento intestinal a partir do piloro até a valva ileocecal. Não houve diferença no comprimeto do intestino delgado em ambos os grupos. Porém, o intestino dos animais alimentados com NTP apresentaram diminuiçao significante de peso comparado com o grupo controle, independentemente da presença ou não de conteúdo. A resistência intestinal era menor no grupo NTP comparado ao controle, sendo mais significante no íleo. A altura dos vilos, a profundidade das criptas e a extensão da parede eram significantemente menores no íleo no grupo NTP comparado ao controle. Este achado foi observado também no jejuno, mas sem diferença significante. Conclui-se que nos ratos alimentados com NTP o intestino delgado perde massa e torna-se menos resistente, principalmente no íleo,apesar da manutenção do estado nutricional. A perda de massa aparece não apenas na mucosa mas em toda a parede intestinal.

    Full Text Available O fluoroacetato de sódio (FAS ou composto 1080 é um potente rodenticida utilizado no controle de roedores e predadores mamíferos. Sua utilização está proibida por lei em diversos países devido à sua alta toxicidade, mas no Brasil há evidências do uso ilegal e sem critérios causando intoxicações, principalmente em crianças e animais domésticos. O FAS age por meio do seu metabólito tóxico, o fluorocitrato, no bloqueio do ciclo de Krebs com conseqënte diminuição da produção de energia do organismo, provocando principalmente manifestações clínicas neurológicas e cardíacas. No presente estudo compararam quatro doses orais tóxicas do fluoroacetato de sódio, descritas em gatos, na literatura, observando-se o aparecimento dos sinais clínicos predominantes da intoxicação, as diferenças entre as doses quanto a variabilidade clínica em relação ao período de latência para o aparecimento dos sinais clínicos e sua respectiva intensidade. A dose oral tóxica que melhor caracterizou o quadro clínico da intoxicação por FAS em gatos, sem causar a letalidade aguda, foi de 0,45mg/kg. As diferenças entre as manifestações clínicas foram dose-dependentes e em ordem crescente de intensidade, caracterizando-se como sinais leves (dose 1: 0,3mg/kg, leves a moderados (dose 2: 0,4mg/kg, moderados a graves (dose 3: 0,45mg/kg e graves (dose 4: 0,5mg/kg. Houve também variabilidade clínica individual entre animais intoxicados com a mesma dosagem do tóxico.

    The idea of identifying oral lesions with a precancerous nature, i.e. in the sense of pertaining to a pathologic process with an increased risk for future malignant development, of course is to prevent frank malignancy to occur in the affected area. The most common oral lesion with a precancerous...... nature is oral leukoplakia, and for decades it has been discussed how to treat these lesions. Various treatment modalities, such as systemic therapies and surgical removal, have been suggested. The systemic therapies tested so far include retinoids, extracts of green tea, inhibitors of cyclooxygenase-2...

    Full Text Available O diabetes mellitus (DM, uma doença endócrino-metabólica de alta e crescente prevalência, é citada como responsável pela ocorrência das candidíases orais. A candidíase constitui um espectro de infecções causadas por fungos do gênero Candida, sendo o seu agente mais comum a Candida albicans, embora outras espécies tenham sido identificadas (Candida tropicalis, Candida guillermondii, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a freqüência e a atividade enzimática de Candida spp. na cavidade oral de pacientes diabéticos atendidos no Serviço de Endocrinologia do Hospital Universitário Walter Cantídio da Universidade Federal do Ceará (HUWC/UFC. Foram coletadas amostras de 48 pacientes diabéticos, de ambos os sexos, com situações variáveis de controle glicêmico. Os materiais clínicos foram colhidos com ajuda de swabs e semeados em placas de Petri contendo ágar-Sabouraud dextrose com cloranfenicol e incubado a 37°C. Os crescimentos foram identificados pelas provas clássicas usadas em micologia. Depois, essas cepas de Candida foram submetidas a provas de detecção de enzimas fosfolipase e proteinase. Destas, 15 amostras (31,25% apresentaram cultura positiva para o gênero Candida. A espécie mais freqüente foi a C. albicans, com 80%, seguida de C. tropicalis (13,3% e C. guillermondii (6,7%. Quanto à pesquisa da atividade enzimática de Candida spp., foi observado que 86,6% delas apresentaram atividade de proteinase e 80%, de fosfolipase.

    In the U.S. oral cancer accounts for 2.1% of all cancers and 1% of cancer deaths. Two to three times as many males as females are affected. Blacks have more intra-oral cancer than whites, and their incidence and mortality rates have increased in recent years. The etiologic process very likely involves several factors. The major etiologic agents are tobacco (all types) and alcoholic beverages. Herpes simplex virus, human papilloma virus, and Candida have been implicated. Host factors include poor state of dentition, nutritional aberrations, cirrhosis of liver, lichen planus, and immunologic impairmant. Cellular changes include amplification of some oncogenes, alterations in antigen expression, production of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, and disturbance of keratin and involucrin production. Experimentally, cancer is readily produced on the hamster cheek pouch and rat oral mucosa. Unlike oral cancer in humans, most experimental lesions are exophytic, and they rarely metastasize.

    Oral candidiasis (OC) is a common fungal disease encountered in dermatology, most commonly caused by an overgrowth of Candida albicans in the mouth. Although thrush is a well-recognized presentation of OC, it behooves clinicians to be aware of the many other presentations of this disease and how to accurately diagnose and manage these cases. The clinical presentations of OC can be broadly classified as white or erythematous candidiasis, with various subtypes in each category. The treatments include appropriate oral hygiene, topical agents, and systemic medications. This review focuses on the various clinical presentations of OC and treatment options.

It is an uncommon clinical condition, being more frequent in underdeveloped countries and hot climate regions, and is associated with poor hygiene, suppurative oral lesions; alcoholism and senility. Its diagnosis is made basically by the presence of larvae. The present article reports a case of oral myiasis involving 20 larvae in a patient with neurological deficiency.

  9. Machado: do discurso romântico da nacionalidade à crítica radical da nação

    João Hernesto Weber

    Full Text Available O artigo se detém, inicialmente, numa leitura da camada aparente de "Instinto de nacionalidade", destacando sua vinculação com as teses românticas sobre o sentido de "nação" e "literatura nacional", insistindo Machado na literatura indigenista, na cor local, na feição americana como paradigma para detectar a nacionalidade do texto literário. Em outra camada de leitura, apontam-se as reticências, as negações, o estilo carregado de adversativas que permeiam o texto, a ponto de Machado vir a negar as teses românticas em sua exclusividade, para, finalmente, abrir o leque do que poderia significar "literatura nacional": tudo é matéria de poesia. Na sequência, analisa-se a formação do Machado ficcionista, quando viria a exercitar o que já se encontrava, em tese, no "Instinto". Por fim, lançam-se algumas questões sobre a importância do ensaio para a crítica e a historiografia literária locais.

    Full Text Available Ronald C Hamdy,1,2 Dane N Daley11Osteoporosis Center, College of Medicine, East Tennessee State University, 2Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Johnson City, TN, USAAbstract: Calcitonin is a hormone secreted by the C-cells of the thyroid gland in response to elevations of the plasma calcium level. It reduces bone resorption by inhibiting mature active osteoclasts and increases renal calcium excretion. It is used in the management of postmenopausal osteoporosis, Paget's disease of bone, and malignancy-associated hypercalcemia. Synthetic and recombinant calcitonin preparations are available; both have similar pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles. As calcitonin is a peptide, the traditional method of administration has been parenteral or intranasal. This hinders its clinical use: adherence with therapy is notoriously low, and withdrawal from clinical trials has been problematic. An oral formulation would be more attractive, practical, and convenient to patients. In addition to its effect on active osteoclasts and renal tubules, calcitonin has an analgesic action, possibly mediated through β-endorphins and the central modulation of pain perception. It also exerts a protective action on cartilage and may be useful in the management of osteoarthritis and possibly rheumatoid arthritis. Oral formulations of calcitonin have been developed using different techniques. The most studied involves drug-delivery carriers such as Eligen® 8-(N-2hydroxy-5-chloro-benzoyl-amino-caprylic acid (5-CNAC (Emisphere Technologies, Cedar Knolls, NJ. Several factors affect the bioavailability and efficacy of orally administered calcitonin, including amount of water used to take the tablet, time of day the tablet is taken, and proximity to intake of a meal. Preliminary results looked promising. Unfortunately, in two Phase III studies, oral calcitonin (0.8 mg with 200 mg 5-CNAC, once a day for postmenopausal osteoporosis and twice a day for osteoarthritis failed to

    Adequate dental and oral hygiene may become a challenge for all users and especially for elderly people and young children because of their limited motor skills. The same holds true for patients undergoing/recovering from chemo-/radiotherapy with accompanying sensitive mucosal conditions. Poor dental hygiene can result in tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontitis, tooth loss, bad breath (halitosis), fungal infection and gum diseases. The use of a toothbrush is the most important measure for oral hygiene. Toothbrushes with soft bristles operated carefully by hand or via an electric device help to remove plaque and to avoid mucosal trauma. A handlebar with a grip cover can be helpful for manually disabled patients or for those with reduced motor skills. In case of oral hygiene at the bedside or of patients during/after chemo-/radiotherapy a gauze pad can be helpful for gently cleaning the teeth, gums and tongue. The use of fluoride toothpaste is imperative for the daily oral hygiene. Detergents such as sodium lauryl sulphate improve the cleaning action but may also dehydrate and irritate the mucous membrane. The use of products containing detergents and flavouring agents (peppermint, menthol, cinnamon) should therefore be avoided by bedridden patients or those with dry mouth and sensitive mucosa. Aids for suitable interdental cleaning, such as dental floss, interdental brushes or dental sticks, are often complicated to operate. Their correct use should be instructed by healthcare professionals. To support dental care, additional fluoridation with a fluoride gel or rinse can be useful. Products further containing antiseptics such as chlorhexidine or triclosan reduce the quantity of bacteria in the mouth. For patients undergoing or having undergone radio-/chemotherapy, a mouthwash that concomitantly moisturizes the oral mucosa is advisable. Copyright © 2011 S. Karger AG, Basel.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: A carcinogênese caracteriza-se como um processo multifatorial, e a inativação da proteína p53 é uma alteração genética comumente observada nos carcinomas de células escamosas de boca (CCEB. OBJETIVO: Analisar e comparar a imunoexpressão da proteína p53, por meio dos clones DO-7 e PAb-240, em CCEB com localização intrabucal e em lábio inferior. MATERIAL E MÉTODOS: Foram selecionados 40 casos de CCEB, sendo 20 de localização intrabucal e 20 em lábio inferior. Foi realizado um estudo imuno-histoquímico utilizando os anticorpos anti-p53 clone DO-7 e PAb-240. A imunoquantificação foi realizada por meio de análise digital de imagem, e os resultados, submetidos a tratamentos estatísticos. RESULTADOS: A imunoexpressão da proteína p53 foi verificada com o anticorpo DO-7 em 13 casos (65% de carcinoma intrabucal e em 19 (95% de carcinoma de lábio inferior. Imunorreatividade para o anticorpo PAb-240 foi observada em 9 casos (45% de lesões intrabucais e em 15 (75% localizados em lábio inferior. Não foram observadas, segundo o teste de Mann-Whitney, diferenças estatisticamente significativas (p > 0,05 na expressão da proteína p53 entre as duas localizações estudadas, independentemente do anticorpo avaliado. Foram identificadas, pelo teste de Wilcoxon, diferenças estatisticamente significativas entre a expressão dos clones DO-7 e PAb-240 em cada um dos grupos analisados (valor p = 0,013 - lábio inferior; valor p = 0,016 - intrabucal. CONCLUSÕES: A expressão da proteína p53 observada nos CCEB, com localizações intrabucais e labiais, sugere a ocorrência de mutações no gene TP53. As diferenças quantitativas obtidas entre os anticorpos estudados, independentemente da localização das lesões, refletem uma especificidade distinta entre os clones DO-7 e PAb-240. O desenvolvimento de mais estudos será fundamental para estabelecer o anticorpo mais adequado para proteína p53 em CCEB

    We evaluated the effectiveness of radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy in patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma. Therefore, 1042 cases where reviewed in School Dentistry - Osaka Univ. Seven hundred and fifteen were male and three hundred and twenty-seven were female. Ora cancer was affected more male than female patients, with mean age of 582 years old. The tongue was the most common anatomic localization of oral cancer. In tongue, the use of external radiotherapy y combined with brachytherapy and brachytherapy isolated presented better results than chemotherapy combined with external radiotherapy. In buccal mucosa, there was not differences in the treatment's results using external radiotherapy and combined chemotherapy and external radiotherapy. In tongue's floor and upper and jaw gingiva the combined treatment with chemotherapy and external radiotherapy presented better results than isolated external radiotherapy. (author)

    Low intensity GaAlAs ({lambda}=830 nm) laser irradiation effects on oral traumatic ulceration were evaluated. For this purpose, twenty patients presenting orthodontic appliance - induced oral traumatic ulceration were randomly distributed in two groups. Patients in group 1 were submitted to the irradiation procedure and group 2 was the control one. The irradiation parameters employed were the following: wavelength 830 nm, one single application of 4 J/cm{sup 2}, punctual in the contact mode and 30 mW power. The control group received the conventional treatment, consisting on topical application of Triancinolon based ointment four times a day. For both groups the agent responsible for the trauma was removed or covered with utility wax whenever removal was impossible. The results were evaluated concerning the wounds size reduction and pain relief. The time of laser irradiation was considered the starting time (time zero) and analysis were done 24 hours, 48 hours and seven days after that. The statistical analysis showed an acceleration in the healing process as well accentuated pain reduction for the irradiated group compared to the control one. These evidences allows us to indicate this protocol of one single application of 4 J/cm{sup 2} as therapy when patients with oral traumatic ulceration can not attend several sessions for a multiple application procedure.

    Full Text Available Paracoccidioidomycosis is a chronic granulomatous disease that induces a specific inflammatory and immune response. The participation of nitric oxide (NO, a product of the inducible nitric oxide synthase enzyme (iNOS, as an important fungicidal molecule against Paracoccidioides brasiliensis has been demonstrated. In order to further characterize the Oral Paracoccidioidomycosis (OP, we undertook an immunohistochemical study of iNOS+, CD45RO+, CD3+, CD8+, CD20+, CD68+ cells and mast cells. The samples were distributed in groups according to the number of viable fungi per mm². Our results showed weak immunolabeling for iNOS in the multinucleated giant cells (MNGC and in most of the mononuclear (MN cells, and the proportion of iNOS+ MN/MNGC cells in the OP were comparable to Control (clinically healthy oral tissues. Additionally, our analysis revealed a similarity in the number of CD4+ cells between the Control and the OP groups with higher numbers of fungi. These findings suggest that a low expression of iNOS and a decrease in the CD4+ T cells in OP may represent possible mechanisms that permit the local fungal multiplication and maintenance of active oral lesions.A paracoccidioidomicose é uma doença granulomatosa crônica que induz resposta inflamatória e imune específica. A participação do óxido nítrico (NO, produto da enzima óxido nítrico sintase induzível (iNOS, como uma importante molécula fungicida contra o fungo Paracoccidioides brasiliensis tem sido demonstrada. Com o objetivo de melhor caracterizar as lesões orais da paracoccidioidomicose (OP, propusemos estudo imunohistoquímico das células iNOS+ e das células CD45RO+, CD3+, CD8+, CD20+, CD68+ e mastócitos. As amostras foram distribuídas em grupos de acordo com o número de fungos viáveis por mm².

METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the records of 80 patients who had atrial fibrillation during the postoperative period after cardiac surgery, initially divided in two groups: group A, 28 patients that used amiodarone, and group B composed of patients receiving digoxin. The latter group was divided further in a third group (C, with 21 patients in which amiodarone was associated with digoxin if there was no reversion of the arrhythmia after 48 hours of treatment. The observed differences were considered significant at P<0.05. RESULTS: Atrial fibrillation occurred in 19.4% of the patients submitted to surgery, predominating in males, 60 to 69 years-old. In group A there was reversion to sinus rhythm in 78.6% of the cases. In group B digoxin succeeded in 60%, and in group C 90% of the patients reverted to sinus rhythm. CONCLUSION: High dose oral amiodarone, alone or combined to digoxin, can be safe and effective for the treatment of atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery.

    Full Text Available Filariasis affecting animals can rarely cause infections in human beings through the accidental bite of potential vectors. The resulting infection in man, known as zoonotic filariasis occur worldwide. Human dirofilariasis, the most common zoonotic filariasis, is caused by the filarial worm belonging to the genus Dirofilaria. Dirofilarial worms, which are recognized as pathogenic in man can cause nodular lesions in the lung, subcutaneous tissue, peritoneal cavity or eyes. Oral dirofilariasis is extremely rare and only a few cases have been documented. We report an interesting case of dirofilariasis due to Dirofilaria repens involving buccal mucosa in a patient who presented with a facial swelling. The clinical features, diagnostic issues and treatment aspects are discussed. This paper stresses the importance of considering dirofilariasis as differential diagnosis for subcutaneous swelling of the face, especially in areas where it is endemic.

    Full Text Available Oral sex is commonly practiced by sexually active male-female and same-gender couples of various ages, including adolescents. The various type of oral sex practices are fellatio, cunnilingus and analingus. Oral sex is infrequently examined in research on adolescents; oral sex can transmit oral, respiratory, and genital pathogens. Oral health has a direct impact on the transmission of infection; a cut in your mouth, bleeding gums, lip sores or broken skin increases chances of infection. Although oral sex is considered a low risk activity, it is important to use protection and safer sex precautions. There are various methods of preventing infection during oral sex such as physical barriers, health and medical issues, ethical issues and oral hygiene and dental issues. The lesions or unhealthy periodontal status of oral cavity accelerates the phenomenon of transmission of infections into the circulation. Thus consequences of unhealthy or painful oral cavity are significant and oral health should be given paramount importance for the practice of oral sex.

Exame clínico e entrevista gravada contendo questões objetivas e discursivas foram realizados com 45 idosos. Conduziu-se análise descritiva quantitativa das questões objetivas e referentes ao exame clínico e à análise de conteúdo das questões discursivas de abordagem qualitativa. Imagens fotográficas do estado bucal foram relacionadas a trechos das entrevistas. A análise quantitativa evidenciou: 4,8 dentes em média; CPOD (número de dentes cariados, perdidos e obturados médio de 29,9; 57,7% eram desdentados, 60% acreditavam não necessitar tratamento, 75% sofriam impacto na qualidade de vida devido às condições bucais, apesar de 67% perceberem positivamente sua saúde bucal. Na análise qualitativa constatou-se subestimação de sintomas, falta de esperança e resignação frente às limitações impostas pelo precário estado clínico. Muitos encararam as limitações como conseqüência do envelhecimento e não como problema que mereça ser corrigido. O que mais incomodou foram as relações de dependência e a proximidade com a morte, minimizando outros problemas. A população idosa foi informada de que poderia modificar sua autopercepção, conscientizando-a que esta realidade pode ser modificada.A qualitative-quantitative approach was used in this study to obtain a clearer understanding of the relationship between self-perception, impact on quality of life and oral health among the elderly.

    Full Text Available Phospholipase and proteinase production and the ability of adhesion to buccal epithelial cells (BEC of 112 Candida isolates originated from oral cavity of HIV infected patients and from blood and catheter of intensive care unit patients were investigated. The proteinase production was detected by inoculation into bovine serum albumin (BSA agar and the phospholipase activity was performed using egg yolk emulsion. A yeast suspension of each test strain was incubated with buccal epithelial cells and the number of adherence yeast to epithelial cells was counted. A percentage of 88.1% and 55.9% of Candida albicans and 69.8% and 37.7% of non-albicans Candida isolates produced proteinase and phospholipase, respectively. Non-albicans Candida isolated from catheter were more proteolytic than C. albicans isolates. Blood isolates were more proteolytic than catheter and oral cavity isolates while oral cavity isolates produced more phospholipase than those from blood and catheter. C. albicans isolates from oral cavity and from catheter were more adherent to BEC than non-albicans Candida isolates, but the adhesion was not different among the three sources analyzed. The results indicated differences in the production of phospholipase and proteinase and in the ability of adhesion to BEC among Candida spp. isolates from different sources. This study suggests that the pathogenicity of Candida can be correlated with the infected site.A produção de proteinase e fosfolipase e habilidade de adesão à célula epitelial bucal de 112 isolados de Candida originadas da cavidade bucal de pacientes infectados pelo HIV e de sangue e cateter de pacientes hospitalizados foram investigados.

Observou-se que a chupeta foi o hábito mais prevalente na infância tanto das mães quanto das crianças (46,6% e 65,4% respectivamente. A onicofagia foi o hábito atual mais prevalente nos dois grupos (38,7% – mães e 32,7% – crianças. Verificou-se que filhos de mães que utilizaram a chupeta na infância apresentaram um risco de 3,4 vezes maior (OR = 3,4 de também apresentarem o hábito de sucção de chupeta comparados aos filhos de mães que não apresentaram este hábito. Constatou-se que filhos de mães com hábito de onicofagia apresentaram quase quatro vezes mais chance de também apresentarem este costume (OR = 3,9. Dentre as portadoras de hábitos, 72,6% considera que estes as prejudicaram ou a seus filhos em algum fator, sendo a desarmonia dos dentes o item mais citado pelas mães (71,9%. Encontrou-se associação entre os hábitos bucais das mães e das crianças, havendo uma tendência de repetição destes pelos filhos. A maioria das mães tem conhecimento de que os hábitos bucais deletérios trazem prejuízos à conformação das arcadas dentárias, porém a repetição destes costumes pelos filhos foi freqüente

    Full Text Available Embora ainda existam sociedades indígenas que mantêm um modo tradicional de viver, nas quais uma alimentação adequada em quantidade e qualidade provém da caça e da prática de agricultura, a maioria dos índios vem sofrendo um processo de aculturação oriundo do contato com a civilização urbana, pois eles não mais dispõem de terra suficiente que garanta a subsistência. Desse modo, acabam tornando-se dependentes do comércio local e consumindo alimentos industrializados que podem ser prejudiciais à saúde bucal e ao estado nutricional. A presente comunicação tem como objetivo identificar a influência da transição alimentar, devido ao contato com a civilização urbana, no estado nutricional e na condição bucal da população indígena brasileira. Os dados relacionados nessa investigação foram obtidos na base de dados do SciELO e do MedLine, PubMed, pesquisando-se os termos de indexação: "índios sul-americanos", "comportamento alimentar", "estado nutricional", "saúde bucal". Estudos revelaram a prevalência de desnutrição infantil, sobrepeso e obesidade em adultos, índice de cárie elevado e doença periodontal nas comunidades indígenas que vêm passando por mudanças de hábitos culturais. Conclui-se que a transição alimentar pode levar a desordens nutricionais e ao desenvolvimento de doenças bucais, sugerindo a necessidade de uma intervenção e/ou monitoramento por meio de programas dirigidos à assistência à saúde, ao saneamento básico, ao acesso à terra e à educação.Although there are still some indigenous societies that have maintained their traditional way of life, where food consumption in terms of amount and quality is based on hunting and agriculture, most indigenous peoples have been undergoing an acculturation process secondary to the contact with urban civilizations, since they no longer have enough land to guarantee their subsistence. Thus, they become dependent on local trade and consume

    Twenty patients presenting fixed orthodontic appliance - induced oral ulceration were randomly chosen for this study. These patients were then divided into two groups. In Group ,1 the ulceration was submitted to low intensity infrared laser ({lambda}=830 nm), at 30 mW fluency per point 1,3 J/cm{sup 2} at an exposure time ranging from 3s to 33s, depending on ulceration size. Ulceration was irradiated on the first day, the process being repeated 24 and then 48 hours later. Evaluations were made seven days after the first irradiation. Group 2 comprised of patients who were exposed to conventional treatment where wax was used to cover the afflicted area. These patients also took triancinolona. Evaluation was made on the same day. In both groups the cause of irritation was eliminated whenever was possible. Clinical results pointed out that the healing process was slightly faster in cases of LILT treated oral ulceration. The latter also presented significant decrease in symptoms of pain. Comparative statistical evaluation results between both groups has shown that in the case of Group 1 patients (those submitted to low-intensity infrared laser beam): 1) Healing process was faster with reduction of sore areas; 2) immediate relief of pain following first irradiation, as stated by patients. Taking into consideration the vast amount of patients who are bearers of fixed orthodontic appliances and whose most usual and frequent complaint is pain and irritation, the use of LILT is highly recommended due to its simplicity and efficacy.

    Full Text Available A amiloidose é uma doença complexa rara de difícil diagnóstico que ocorre devido à deposição de substância amilóide no meio extracelular. Ao ser diagnosticado na cavidade bucal, deve-se monitorar o paciente a fim de avaliar possíveis complicações sistêmicas da doença. Diante disso, o objetivo do presente estudo é relatar um caso de amiloidose oral em uma paciente do gênero feminino de 72 anos de idade. Baseado nos sinais clínicos observados, a hipótese diagnóstica foi de fibroma traumático. Após realização de biópsia e exame histopatológico, o diagnóstico foi de amiloidose oral, o que foi confirmado com a coloração do espécime com o reagente vermelho congo. Depósitos de amilóide foram encontrados no tecido conjuntivo, na avaliação através da luz polarizada, que apresentou birrefringência. Tal achado foi preocupante, já que a amiloidose geralmente acomete diversos tecidos levando a comprometimentos sistêmicos. Por essa razão a paciente foi encaminhada a procurar atendimento médico. No entanto, houve abandono do tratamento e a mesma veio a óbito 6 meses após o diagnóstico da doença. Lesões orais aparentemente simples podem revelar doenças raras e de difícil tratamento.

However, in vitro and in vivo studies on the bacteria following transfection of plasmid DNA were poorly studied. In this paper, eukaryotic expression plasmids encoding avian influenza virus (AIV subtype H5N1 genes, pcDNA3.1/HA, NA, and NP, were transfected into an attenuated Salmonella enteric typhimurium SV4089. In vitro stability of the transfected plasmids into Salmonella were over 90% after 100 generations. The attenuated Salmonella were able to invade MCF-7 (1.2% and MCF-10A (0.5% human breast cancer cells. Newly hatched specific-pathogen-free (SPF chicks were inoculated once by oral gavage with 109 colony-forming unit (CFU of the attenuated Salmonella. No abnormal clinical signs or deaths were recorded after inoculation. Viable bacteria were detected 3 days after inoculation by plating from spleen, liver, and cecum. Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH and polymerase chain reaction (PCR were carried out for confirmation. Salmonella was not detected in blood cultures although serum antibody immune responses to Salmonella O antiserum group D1 factor 1, 9, and 12 antigens were observed in all the inoculated chickens after 7 days up to 35 days. Our results showed that live attenuated S. typhimurium SV4089 harboring pcDNA3.1/HA, NA, and NP may provide a unique alternative as a carrier for DNA oral vaccine in chickens.

    Full Text Available Studies have related the action of alcohol on the oral mucosa as a promoter of carcinogenesis, once most oral antiseptics contain alcohol. Its utilization for mouthrinses from 30 to 60 seconds, as indicated on the labels, yields a longer-lasting topical action when compared to the intake of alcoholic beverages. This study aimed at conducting a macroscopic and microscopic analysis of the tissue response of tongue mucosa of hamsters to daily topical applications of antiseptics (Anapyon, Listerine, Oral B during 13 and 20 weeks, following the methodology for carcinogenesis investigation developed by the Discipline of Pathology of Bauru Dental School, University of São Paulo. After sacrificing the animals, their tongues were removed and fixed on 10% formalin. Macroscopic examination did not reveal significant alterations, and the specimens were processed by routine histotechnical procedures for HE staining. Three serial sections of each tongue were evaluated, and characteristics related to epithelial hyperkeratinization, atrophy, hyperplasia and dysplasia were organized in tables. Despite the observation for moderate dysplasia in one case in the Anapyon 20 week group, the further results were very similar to the control group (saline solution, eliminating the need of comparative statistical tests. By means of such methodology for testing the carcinogenesis-initiating action, it was concluded that oral antiseptics are unable to trigger the development of neoplasms.Estudos associam a ação do álcool na mucosa bucal como promotora da carcinogênese e a maioria dos anti-sépticos bucais contém álcool.

    Oral cancer is considered as a serious health problem resulting in high morbidity and mortality. Early detection and prevention play a key role in controlling the burden of oral cancer worldwide. The five-year survival rate of oral cancer still remains low and delayed diagnosis is considered as one of the major reasons. This increases the demand for oral screening. Currently, screening of oral cancer is largely based on visual examination. Various evidence strongly suggest the validity of visual inspection in reducing mortality in patients at risk for oral cancer. Simple visual examination is accompanied with adjunctive techniques for subjective interpretation of dysplastic changes. These include toluidine blue staining, brush biopsy, chemiluminescence and tissue autofluorescence. This review highlights the efficacy of various diagnostic methods in screening of oral cancer. © 2016 Old City Publishing, Inc.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Many oral lesions may need to be diagnosed by removing a sample of tissue from the oral cavity. Biopsy is widely used in the medical field, but the practice is not quite widespread in dental practice. As oral pathologists, we have found many artifacts in the tissue specimen because of poor biopsy technique or handling, which has led to diagnostic pitfalls and misery to both the patient and the clinician. This article aims at alerting the clinicians about the clinical faults arising preoperatively, intraoperatively and postoperatively while dealing with oral biopsy that may affect the histological assessment of the tissue and, therefore, the diagnosis. It also reviews the different techniques, precautions and special considerations necessary for specific lesions.

    Mucosal involvement is commonly seen in patients with lupus; however, oral examination is often forgotten. Squamous cell carcinoma arising within oral lupoid plaques has been described, emphasizing the importance of identifying and treating oral lupus. We undertook a retrospective single-centre study looking at oral findings in patients attending our multidisciplinary lupus clinic between January 2015 and April 2016. A total of 42 patients were included. The majority of patients were female (88%) and had a diagnosis of discoid lupus erythematosus (62%). Half of the patients had positive oral findings, 26% had no oral examination documented, and 24% had documented normal oral examinations. Our findings suggest that oral pathology is common in this cohort of patients. Regular oral examination is warranted to identify oral lupus and provide treatment. Associated diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome may also be identified. Patients should be encouraged to see their general dental practitioners on a regular basis for mucosal review. Any persistent ulcer that fails to respond to treatment or hard lump needs urgent histopathological evaluation to exclude malignant transformation to squamous cell carcinoma.

    Full Text Available Patients receiving radiotherapy or chemotherapy will receive some degree of oral mucositis The incidence of oral mucositis was especially high in patients: (i With primary tumors in the oral cavity, oropharynx, or nasopharynx; (ii who also received concomitant chemotherapy; (iii who received a total dose over 5,000 cGy; and (iv who were treated with altered fractionation radiation schedules. Radiation-induced oral mucositis affects the quality of life of the patients and the family concerned. The present day management of oral mucositis is mostly palliative and or supportive care. The newer guidelines are suggesting Palifermin, which is the first active mucositis drug as well as Amifostine, for radiation protection and cryotherapy. The current management should focus more on palliative measures, such as pain management, nutritional support, and maintenance, of good oral hygiene

  11. Towards understanding oral health.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zaura, Egija; ten Cate, Jacob M

    2015-01-01

    During the last century, dental research has focused on unraveling the mechanisms behind various oral pathologies, while oral health was typically described as the mere absence of oral diseases. The term 'oral microbial homeostasis' is used to describe the capacity of the oral ecosystem to maintain microbial community stability in health. However, the oral ecosystem itself is not stable: throughout life an individual undergoes multiple physiological changes while progressing through infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. Recent discussions on the definition of general health have led to the proposal that health is the ability of the individual to adapt to physiological changes, a condition known as allostasis. In this paper the allostasis principle is applied to the oral ecosystem. The multidimensionality of the host factors contributing to allostasis in the oral cavity is illustrated with an example on changes occurring in puberty. The complex phenomenon of oral health and the processes that prevent the ecosystem from collapsing during allostatic changes in the entire body are far from being understood. As yet individual components (e.g. hard tissues, microbiome, saliva, host response) have been investigated, while only by consolidating these and assessing their multidimensional interactions should we be able to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the ecosystem, which in turn could serve to develop rational schemes to maintain health. Adapting such a 'system approach' comes with major practical challenges for the entire research field and will require vast resources and large-scale multidisciplinary collaborations. 2015 S.

  12. Global Oral Health Inequalities

    Garcia, I.; Tabak, L.A.

    2011-01-01

    Despite impressive worldwide improvements in oral health, inequalities in oral health status among and within countries remain a daunting public health challenge. Oral health inequalities arise from a complex web of health determinants, including social, behavioral, economic, genetic, environmental, and health system factors. Eliminating these inequalities cannot be accomplished in isolation of oral health from overall health, or without recognizing that oral health is influenced at multiple individual, family, community, and health systems levels. For several reasons, this is an opportune time for global efforts targeted at reducing oral health inequalities. Global health is increasingly viewed not just as a humanitarian obligation, but also as a vehicle for health diplomacy and part of the broader mission to reduce poverty, build stronger economies, and strengthen global security. Despite the global economic recession, there are trends that portend well for support of global health efforts: increased globalization of research and development, growing investment from private philanthropy, an absolute growth of spending in research and innovation, and an enhanced interest in global health among young people. More systematic and far-reaching efforts will be required to address oral health inequalities through the engagement of oral health funders and sponsors of research, with partners from multiple public and private sectors. The oral health community must be “at the table” with other health disciplines and create opportunities for eliminating inequalities through collaborations that can harness both the intellectual and financial resources of multiple sectors and institutions.

  13. Oral microbiota and cancer

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jukka H. Meurman

    2010-08-01

    Full Text Available Inflammation caused by infections may be the most important preventable cause of cancer in general. However, in the oral cavity the role of microbiota in carcinogenesis is not known. Microbial populations on mouth mucosa differ between healthy and malignant sites and certain oral bacterial species have been linked with malignancies but the evidence is still weak in this respect. Nevertheless, oral microorganisms inevitably up-regulate cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that affect the complex metabolic pathways and may thus be involved in carcinogenesis. Poor oral health associates statistically with prevalence of many types of cancer, such as pancreatic and gastrointestinal cancer. Furthermore, several oral micro-organisms are capable of converting alcohol to carcinogenic acetaldehyde which also may partly explain the known association between heavy drinking, smoking, poor oral health and the prevalence of oral and upper gastrointestinal cancer. A different problem is the cancer treatment-caused alterations in oral microbiota which may lead to the emergence of potential pathogens and subsequent other systemic health problems to the patients. Hence clinical guidelines and recommendations have been presented to control oral microbiota in patients with malignant disease, but also in this area the scientific evidence is weak. More controlled studies are needed for further conclusion.

    Feller, L; Khammissa, R A G; Chandran, R; Altini, M; Lemmer, J

    2014-09-01

    Symptomatic oral infection with Candida albicans is characterized by invasion of the oral epithelium by virulent hyphae that cause tissue damage releasing the inflammatory mediators that initiate and sustain local inflammation. Candida albicans triggers pattern-recognition receptors of keratinocytes, macrophages, monocytes and dendritic cells, stimulating the production of IL-1β, IL-6 and IL-23. These cytokines induce the differentiation of Th17 cells and the generation of IL-17- and/or IL-22-mediated antifungal protective immuno-inflammatory responses in infected mucosa. Some immune cells including NKT cells, γδ T cells and lymphoid cells that are innate to the oral mucosa have the capacity to produce large quantities of IL-17 in response to C. albicans, sufficient to mediate effective protective immunity against C. albicans. On the other hand, molecular structures of commensal C. albicans blastoconidia, although detected by pattern-recognition receptors, are avirulent, do not invade the oral epithelium, do not elicit inflammatory responses in a healthy host, but induce regulatory immune responses that maintain tissue tolerance to the commensal fungi. The type, specificity and sensitivity of the protective immune response towards C. albicans is determined by the outcome of the integrated interactions between the intracellular signalling pathways of specific combinations of activated pattern-recognition receptors (TLR2, TLR4, Dectin-1 and Dectin-2). IL-17-mediated protective immune response is essential for oral mucosal immunity to C. albicans infection. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate oral epithelial cells of the oral mucosa infected by Candida albicans using exfoliative cytology. Oral smears were collected from clinically normal-appearing mucosa by liquid-based exfoliative cytology of 60 individuals (30 patients with oral candidiasis and 30 healthy controls matched for age and gender) and analysed for morphologic and cytomorphometric technique. Morphologically, candida-infected epithelial cells exhibited nuclear enlargement, perinuclear rings, discrete orangeophilia, and cytoplasmic vacuoles. The cytomorphometric analysis demonstrated that the cytoplasmic area (CA) of the epithelial cells was diminished in patients undergoing candidiasis as compared to the non-infected controls. In addition, there was an augmentation in nuclear area (NA) and NA/CA area ratio. This study revealed that oral mucosa of patients undergoing candidal infection exhibited significant changes in the size and shape of the oral epithelial cells. © 2010 Blackwell Verlag GmbH.

  5. Myocardial Na,K-ATPase: Clinical aspects

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kjeldsen, Keld

    2003-01-01

    The specific binding of digitalis glycosides to Na,K-ATPase is used as a tool for Na,K-ATPase quantification with high accuracy and precision. In myocardial biopsies from patients with heart failure, total Na,K-ATPase concentration is decreased by around 40%; a correlation exists between a decrease in heart function and a decrease in Na,K-ATPase concentration. During digitalization, around 30% of remaining pumps are occupied by digoxin. Myocardial Na,K-ATPase is also influenced by other drugs used for the treatment of heart failure. Thus, potassium loss during diuretic therapy has been found to reduce myocardial Na,K-ATPase, whereas angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors may stimulate Na,K pump activity. Furthermore, hyperaldosteronism induced by heart failure has been found to decrease Na,K-ATPase activity. Accordingly, treatment with the aldosterone antagonist, spironolactone, may also influence Na,K-ATPase activity. The importance of Na,K pump modulation with heart disease, inhibition in digitalization and other effects of medication should be considered in the context of sodium, potassium and calcium regulation. It is recommended that digoxin be administered to heart failure patients who, after institution of mortality-reducing therapy, still have heart failure symptoms, and that the therapy be continued if symptoms are revealed or reduced. Digitalis glycosides are the only safe inotropic drugs for oral use that improve hemodynamics in heart failure. An important aspect of myocardial Na,K pump affection in heart disease is its influence on extracellular potassium (Ke) homeostasis. Two important aspects should be considered: potassium handling among myocytes, and effects of potassium entering the extracellular space of the heart via the bloodstream. It should be noted that both of these aspects of Ke homeostasis are affected by regulatory aspects, eg, regulation of the Na,K pump by physiological and pathophysiological conditions, as well as by medical

    2013-09-01

    Oral human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the cause of 40% to 80% of oropharyngeal cancers; yet, no published study has examined the role of oral health in oral HPV infection, either independently or in conjunction with other risk factors. This study examined the relation between oral health and oral HPV infection and the interactive effects of oral health, smoking, and oral sex on oral HPV infection. Our analyses comprised 3,439 participants ages 30 to 69 years for whom data on oral HPV and oral health were available from the nationally representative 2009-2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Results showed that higher unadjusted prevalence of oral HPV infection was associated with four measures of oral health, including self-rated oral health as poor-to-fair [prevalence ratio (PR) = 1.56; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.25-1.95], indicated the possibility of gum disease (PR = 1.51; 95% CI, 1.13-2.01), reported use of mouthwash to treat dental problems in the past week (PR = 1.28; 95% CI, 1.07-1.52), and higher number of teeth lost (Ptrend = 0.035). In multivariable logistic regression models, oral HPV infection had a statistically significant association with self-rated overall oral health (OR = 1.55; 95% CI, 1.15-2.09), independent of smoking and oral sex. In conclusion, poor oral health was an independent risk factor of oral HPV infection, irrespective of smoking and oral sex practices. Public health interventions may aim to promote oral hygiene and oral health as an additional measure to prevent HPV-related oral cancers.

    ísmo, permite avaliar a magnitude da violência simbólica implicada na evangelização.For centuries, a part of the cultured world heeded the White man views on the Guaraní thoughts and behavior -those were the exclusive times of Anthropology of the Other. Nowadays there are attempts to do Anthropology of the Other on ourselves. In order to show both sides of this issue, this paper compares the voices of some White scholars who wrote about the Guaraní with some of the Mbyá-guaraní talking about their own and the White man culture. The topic in question is the figure of Tupã , whose name was appropriated by the colonial missionaries to build their monotheistic discourse. In this interplay of alterity, we analyze first the pernicious "literary life" of this character, followed by the voices of those still hurting from this historic event. This confrontation reveals both the biased inconsistencies of some Guaraní writings and strategies to protect their polytheism, and the magnitude of the symbolic violence intrinsic to the Evangelization process.

    Science.gov (United States)

    McCann, A L; Bonci, L

    2001-07-01

    Women must adopt health-promoting strategies for both general health and the oral cavity, because the health of a woman's body and oral cavity are bidirectional. For general health-maintenance strategies, dental practitioners should actively advise women to minimize alcohol use, abstain from or cease smoking, stay physically active, and choose the right foods to nourish both the body and mind. For oral health-maintenance strategies, dental practitioners should advise women on how to prevent or control oral infections, particularly dental caries and periodontal diseases. Specifically, women need to know how to remove plaque from the teeth mechanically, use appropriate chemotherapeutic agents and dentifrices, use oral irrigation, and control halitosis. Dental practitioners also need to stress the importance of regular maintenance visits for disease prevention. Adolescent women are more prone to gingivitis and aphthous ulcers when they begin their menstrual cycles and need advice about cessation of tobacco use, mouth protection during athletic activities, cleaning orthodontic appliances, developing good dietary habits, and avoiding eating disorders. Women in early to middle adulthood may be pregnant or using oral contraceptives with concomitant changes in oral tissues. Dental practitioners need to advise them how to take care of the oral cavity during these changes and how to promote the health of their infants, including good nutrition. Older women experience the onset of menopause and increased vulnerability to osteoporosis. They may also experience xerostomia and burning mouth syndrome. Dental practitioners need to help women alleviate these symptoms and encourage them to continue good infection control and diet practices.

  17. Oral vs. salivary diagnostics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Marques, Joana; Corby, Patricia M.; Barber, Cheryl A.; Abrams, William R.; Malamud, Daniel

    2015-05-01

    The field of "salivary diagnostics" includes studies utilizing samples obtained from a variety of sources within the oral cavity. These samples include; whole unstimulated saliva, stimulated whole saliva, duct saliva collected directly from the parotid, submandibular/sublingual glands or minor salivary glands, swabs of the buccal mucosa, tongue or tonsils, and gingival crevicular fluid. Many publications state "we collected saliva from subjects" without fully describing the process or source of the oral fluid. Factors that need to be documented in any study include the time of day of the collection, the method used to stimulate and collect the fluid, and how much fluid is being collected and for how long. The handling of the oral fluid during and post-collection is also critical and may include addition of protease or nuclease inhibitors, centrifugation, and cold or frozen storage prior to assay. In an effort to create a standard protocol for determining a biomarker's origin we carried out a pilot study collecting oral fluid from 5 different sites in the mouth and monitoring the concentrations of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines detected using MesoScaleDiscovery (MSD) electrochemiluminesence assays. Our data suggested that 3 of the cytokines are primarily derived from the submandibular gland, while 7 of the cytokines come from a source other than the major salivary glands such as the minor salivary glands or cells in the oral mucosae. Here we review the literature on monitoring biomarkers in oral samples and stress the need for determining the blood/saliva ratio when a quantitative determination is needed and suggest that the term oral diagnostic be used if the source of an analyte in the oral cavity is unknown.

    Oral cancer is one of the major global threats to public health. The development of oral cancer is a tobacco-related multistep and multifocal process involving field cancerization and carcinogenesis. The rationale for molecular-targeted prevention of oral cancer is promising. Biomarkers of genomic instability, including aneuploidy and allelic imbalance, are possible to measure the cancer risk of oral premalignancies. Understanding of the biology of oral carcinogenesis will yield important adv...

    A growing body of evidence implicates human oral bacteria in the etiology of oral and gastrointestinal cancers. Epidemiological studies consistently report increased risks of these cancers in men and women with periodontal disease or tooth loss, conditions caused by oral bacteria. More than 700 bacterial species inhabit the oral cavity, including at least 11 bacterial phyla and 70 genera. Oral bacteria may activate alcohol and smoking-related carcinogens locally or act systemically, through c...

    Oral squamous-cell carcinoma, the main type of oral cancer, is among the ten most common cancers in the world. The aims of this paper were first, to consider whether there was evidence of marked ethnic variations in the incidence, management, and survival of oral cancer, and then, to review possible explanations for these variations. Evidence from the literature suggests that there is marked, inter-country variation in both the incidence and mortality from oral cancer. There is also growing evidence of intracountry ethnic differences, mostly reported in the UK and USA. These variations among ethnic groups have been attributed mainly to specific risk factors, such as alcohol and tobacco (smoking and smokeless), but dietary factors and the existence of genetic predispositions may also play a part. Variations in access to care services are also an apparent factor. The extent of ethnic differences in oral cancer is masked by the scarcity of information available. Where such data are accessible, there are clear disparities in both incidence and mortality of oral cancer between ethnic groups.

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: Oral Myiasis, a condition of infestation of the body by fly larvae (maggots is a rare pathology in humans. It is associated with poor oral hygiene, alcoholism, senility, suppurating lesions, severe halitosis. It is seen frequently in tropical countries and hot climatic regions. The reported cases in literature of oral Myiasis associated with oral cancer are few. The treatment is a mechanical removal of the maggots but a systemic treatment with Ivermectin, a semi - synthetic macrolide antibiotic, has been used successfully for treatment for oral m yiasis. We present a case of 55 yr old male alcoholic patient with oral myiasis with extensive proliferative growth of oral cavity. Our patient was managed with manual debridement and administration of systemic ivermect in along with antibiotic coverage. Incisional biopsy of the proliferative lesion showed well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Thus our patient showed presence of oral myiasis in association with oral squamous cell carcinoma.

    Human oral bacteria interact with their environment by attaching to surfaces and establishing mixed-species communities. As each bacterial cell attaches, it forms a new surface to which other cells can adhere. Adherence and community development are spatiotemporal; such order requires communication. The discovery of soluble signals, such as autoinducer-2, that may be exchanged within multispecies communities to convey information between organisms has emerged as a new research direction. Direct-contact signals, such as adhesins and receptors, that elicit changes in gene expression after cell-cell contact and biofilm growth are also an active research area. Considering that the majority of oral bacteria are organized in dense three-dimensional biofilms on teeth, confocal microscopy and fluorescently labeled probes provide valuable approaches for investigating the architecture of these organized communities in situ. Oral biofilms are readily accessible to microbiologists and are excellent model systems for studies of microbial communication. One attractive model system is a saliva-coated flowcell with oral bacterial biofilms growing on saliva as the sole nutrient source; an intergeneric mutualism is discussed. Several oral bacterial species are amenable to genetic manipulation for molecular characterization of communication both among bacteria and between bacteria and the host. A successful search for genes critical for mixed-species community organization will be accomplished only when it is conducted with mixed-species communities. PMID:12209001

    Good oral health care during pregnancy is essential but often overlooked factor of dental growth as well as of other structures of oral cavity. Pregnancy is the time when conscious approach to preventive oral care should increase. Preventive measures during pregnancy mean usage of fluorides, special dietary measures and increased oral hygiene habits. Preventive measures in pregnant women have one goal: providing conditions for development of fetal teeth as well as preventing tooth decay in pregnant women. The optimal period for introducing preventive measures is the first trimester of pregnancy. Because of hormonal alterations there is an increased incidence of dental diseases: gingivitis and low salivary pH (inflammation and bleeding gums). Eating habits of pregnant women may lead to frequent snacking on candy or other decay-promoting foods, thereby increasing the risk of caries. However, very poor oral health, possible dental complications and their consequences to the health as well as emotional status represent very strong reasons for activation of dental health care in this period.

    The oral microbiota represents an important part of the human microbiota, and includes several hundred to several thousand diverse species. It is a normal part of the oral cavity and has an important function to protect against colonization of extrinsic bacteria which could affect systemic health. On the other hand, the most common oral diseases caries, gingivitis and periodontitis are based on microorganisms. While (medical) research focused on the planktonic phase of bacteria over the last 100 years, it is nowadays generally known, that oral microorganisms are organised as biofilms. On any non-shedding surfaces of the oral cavity dental plaque starts to form, which meets all criteria for a microbial biofilm and is subject to the so-called succession. When the sensitive ecosystem turns out of balance - either by overload or weak immune system - it becomes a challenge for local or systemic health. Therefore, the most common strategy and the golden standard for the prevention of caries, gingivitis and periodontitis is the mechanical removal of this biofilms from teeth, restorations or dental prosthesis by regular toothbrushing.

    Oral health care in pregnancy is often avoided and misunderstood by physicians, dentists, and patients. Evidence-based practice guidelines are still being developed. Research suggests that some prenatal oral conditions may have adverse consequences for the child. Periodontitis is associated with preterm birth and low birth weight, and high levels of cariogenic bacteria in mothers can lead to increased dental caries in the infant. Other oral lesions, such as gingivitis and pregnancy tumors, are benign and require only reassurance and monitoring. Every pregnant woman should be screened for oral risks, counseled on proper oral hygiene, and referred for dental treatment when necessary. Dental procedures such as diagnostic radiography, periodontal treatment, restorations, and extractions are safe and are best performed during the second trimester. Xylitol and chlorhexidine may be used as adjuvant therapy for high-risk mothers in the early postpartum period to reduce transmission of cariogenic bacteria to their infants. Appropriate dental care and prevention during pregnancy may reduce poor prenatal outcomes and decrease infant caries.

  11. Canine oral melanoma.

    2007-05-01

    Melanoma is the most common oral malignancy in the dog. Oral and/or mucosal melanoma has been routinely considered an extremely malignant tumor with a high degree of local invasiveness and high metastatic propensity. Primary tumor size has been found to be extremely prognostic. The World Health Organization staging scheme for dogs with oral melanoma is based on size, with stage I = or = 4cm tumor and/or lymph node metastasis, and stage IV = distant metastasis. Median survival times for dogs with oral melanoma treated with surgery are approximately 17 to 18, 5 to 6, and 3 months with stage I, II, and III disease, respectively. Significant negative prognostic factors include stage, size, evidence of metastasis, and a variety of histologic criteria. Standardized treatments such as surgery, coarse-fractionation radiation therapy, and chemotherapy have afforded minimal to modest stage-dependent clinical benefits and death is usually due to systemic metastasis. Numerous immunotherapeutic strategies have been employed to date with limited clinical efficacy; however, the use of xenogeneic DNA vaccines may represent a leap forward in clinical efficacy. Oral melanoma is a spontaneous syngeneic cancer occurring in outbred, immunocompetent dogs and appears to be a more clinically faithful therapeutic model for human melanoma; further use of canine melanoma as a therapeutic model for human melanoma is strongly encouraged. In addition, the development of an expanded but clinically relevant staging system incorporating the aforementioned prognostic factors is also strongly encouraged.

    Full Text Available Pyogenic granuloma is one of the inflammatory hyperplasias seen in the oral cavity. This term is a misnomer because the lesion is unrelated to infection and in reality arises in response to various stimuli such as low-grade local irritation, traumatic injury, or hormonal factors. It predominantly occurs in the second decade of life in young females, possibly because of the vascular effects of female hormones. Clinically, oral pyogenic granuloma is a smooth or lobulated exophytic lesion manifesting as small, red erythematous growth on a pedunculated or sometimes sessile base, which is usually hemorrhagic. Although excisional surgery is the treatment of choice , some other treatment protocols such as the use of Nd:YAG laser, flash lamp pulsed dye laser, cryosurgery, intralesional injection of ethanol or corticosteroids, and sodium tetradecyl sulfate sclerotherapy have been proposed. We present the case of a 25-year-old pregnant woman with large oral pyogenic granuloma.

    To evaluate cytopathological changes in epithelial cells of the oral mucosa of patients with oral lichen planus (OLP) compared with patients without OLP. Swabs were collected from the oral mucosa of 20 patients with OLP (case group) and 20 patients without OLP (control group) using liquid-based cytology. After Papanicolaou staining, the smears were characterized based on Papanicolaou classification and degree of maturation. Nuclear area (NA) measurements, cytoplasmic area (CA) measurements, and the NA/CA ratio were determined from 50 epithelial cells per slide. For quantification of argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions (AgNORs), the smears were stained with silver nitrate, and the number of AgNORs was counted in 100 cells. In both groups, there was a predominance of Papanicolaou Class I nucleated cells in the superficial layer. The average values of NA (p>0.05) and CA (p=0.000) were greater in the case group (NA=521.6, CA=22,750.3) compared with the control group (NA=518.9, CA=18,348.0). The NA/CA ratio was 0.025 for the case group and 0.031 for the control group (p=0.004). There was no significant difference between the mean AgNORs values of both groups (p>0.05). The oral mucosa of patients with OLP exhibited significant cytomorphometric changes. However, there was no evidence of malignancy. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.

    Oral health is affected by its resident microorganisms. Three prominent oral disorders are dental caries, gingivitis and periodontitis, with the oral microbiota playing a key role in the initiation/progression of all three. Understanding the microbiota and the diseases they may cause is critical to the development of new therapeutics. This review is focused on probiotics for the prevention and/or treatment of oral diseases. This review describes the oral ecosystem and its correlation with oral health/disease. The pathogenesis and current prevention/treatment strategies of periodontal diseases (PD) and dental caries (DC) are depicted. An introduction of probiotics is followed by an analysis of their role in PD and DC, and their potential role(s) in oral health. Finally, a discussion ensues on the future research directions and limitations of probiotics for oral health. An effective oral probiotic formulation should contribute to the prevention/treatment of microbial diseases of the oral cavity. Understanding the oral microbiota's role in oral disease is important for the development of a therapeutic to prevent/treat dental diseases. However, investigations into clinical efficacy, delivery/dose optimization, mechanism(s) of action and other related parameters are yet to be fully explored. Keeping this in mind, investigations into oral probiotic therapies are proving promising.

Metabolomics might be a useful method for clarifying the whole metabolic systems that operate in oral biofilm and oral cancer, however, technical limitations have hampered such research. Fortunately, metabolomics techniques have developed rapidly in the past decade, which has helped to solve these difficulties. In vivo metabolomic analyses of the oral biofilm have produced various findings. Some of these findings agreed with the in vitro results obtained in conventional metabolic studies using representative oral bacteria, while others differed markedly from them. Metabolomic analyses of oral cancer tissue not only revealed differences between metabolomic profiles of cancer and normal tissue, but have also suggested a specific metabolic system operates in oral cancer tissue. Saliva contains a variety of metabolites, some of which might be associated with oral or systemic disease; therefore, metabolomics analysis of saliva could be useful for identifying disease-specific biomarkers.

    Oral cavity squamous cell cancers form a significant percentage of the cancers seen in India. While clinical examination allows direct visualization, it cannot evaluate deep extension of disease. Cross-sectional imaging has become the cornerstone in the pretreatment evaluation of these cancers and provides accurate information about the extent and depth of disease that can help decide the appropriate management strategy and indicate prognosis. Early cancers are treated with a single modality, either surgery or radiotherapy while advanced cancers are offered a combination of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Imaging can decide resectability, help plan the precise extent of resection, and indicate whether organ conservation therapy should be offered. Quality of life issues necessitate preservation of form and function and pretreatment imaging helps plan appropriate reconstruction and counsel patients regarding lifestyle changes. Oral cavity has several subsites and the focus of the review is squamous cancers of the gingivobuccal region, oral tongue and retromolar trigone as these are most frequently encountered in the subcontinent. References for this review were identified by searching Medline and PubMed databases. Only articles published in English language literature were selected. This review aims to familiarize the radiologist with the relevant anatomy of the oral cavity, discuss the specific issues that influence prognosis and management at the above subsites, the optimal imaging methods, the role of imaging in accurately staging these cancers and in influencing management. A checklist for reporting will emphasize the information to be conveyed by the radiologist

    2010-12-01

    On the 50th birthday of the pill, it is appropriate to recall the milestones which have led to its development and evolution during the last five decades. The main contraceptive effect of the pill being inhibition of ovulation, it may be called a small miracle that this drug was developed long before the complex regulation of ovulation and the menstrual cycle was elucidated. Another stumbling block on its way was the hostile climate with regard to contraception that prevailed at the time. Animal experiments on the effect of sex steroids on ovulation, and the synthesis of sex steroids and orally active analogues were the necessary preliminaries. We owe the development of oral contraceptives to a handful of persons: two determined feminists, Margaret Sanger and Katherine McCormick; a biologist, Gregory Pincus; and a gynaecologist, John Rock. Soon after the introduction of the first pills, some nasty and life-threatening side effects emerged, which were due to the high doses of sex steroids. This led to the development of new preparations with reduced oestrogen content, progestins with more specific action, and alternative administration routes. Almost every decade we have witnessed a breakthrough in oral contraception. Social and moral objections to birth control have gradually disappeared and, notwithstanding some pill scares, oral contraceptives are now one of the most used methods of contraception. Finally, all's well that ends well: recent reports have substantiated the multiple noncontraceptive health benefits paving the way for a bright future for this 50-year-old product.

  9. Oral Lichen Planus.

    Ion, Daniela I; Setterfield, Jane F

    2016-02-01

    Lichen planus (LP) is a relatively common autoimmune T-cell-mediated disease of unknown aetiology affecting the mucous membranes, skin and nails. Its prevalence varies between 0.5 and 2.2% of the population in epidemiological studies with a peak incidence in the 30-60 years range and with a female predominance of 2:1. Mucosal lichen planus tends to follow a chronic course with acute exacerbations. Spontaneous remission of oral lichen planus (OLP) is uncommon, and indeed mucosal LP may become worse with time. In contrast, cutaneous lichen planus may follow a milder clinical course though some variants may be severe such as those affecting the palms and soles and the scalp and the genital tract in females (vulvovaginal gingival LP) where scarring leads to significant complications. It is important to identify those cases that may be drug induced or be associated with a contact allergic or irritant reaction (lichenoid reaction) or the rarer oral presentation of discoid lupus erythematosus. There is a very small risk of malignancy (approximately 1:200 patients/year) associated with oral lichen planus; thus patients should be informed that long term monitoring via their general dental practitioner is appropriate. This review will focus on the clinical presentation and management of oral lichen planus.

    Full Text Available 29 - year Lichen planus is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune skin disease, that is often manifested, except on the skin, in the oral cavity in a variety of clinical forms. The prevalence of the disease in the general population is about 1-2%. Etiopathogenesis is not still well understood. Histopathology, in addition to the basic methods, anamnesis and physical examination, is vital for proper diagnosis of oral lichen planus (OLP. Very diverse and loaded histological findings are common for all forms of oral lichen planus. We reported the case of oral lichen planus in a 49 years old male patient, who presented to the Dentistry clinic of Medical faculty of Priština with burning and itching symptoms and changes in the buccal mucosa. Histopathological analysis of biopsy tissue conformed clinical diagnosis of lichen planus. Due to the possibility for malignant transformation of lesions, the long-term follow-up of patients with this disease is of great importance.

  11. Antibiotics and oral contraceptives.

    DeRossi, Scott S; Hersh, Elliot V

    2002-10-01

    With the exception of rifampin-like drugs, there is a lack of scientific evidence supporting the ability of commonly prescribed antibiotics, including all those routinely employed in outpatient dentistry, to either reduce blood levels and/or the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. To date, all clinical trials studying the effects of concomitant antibiotic therapy (with the exception of rifampin and rifabutin) have failed to demonstrate an interaction. Like all drugs, oral contraceptives are not 100% effective with the failure rate in the typical United States population reported to be as high as 3%. It is thus possible that the case reports of unintended pregnancies during antibiotic therapy may simply represent the normal failure rate of these drugs. Considering that both drug classes are prescribed frequently to women of childbearing potential, one would expect a much higher rate of oral contraceptive failure in this group of patients if a true drug:drug interaction existed. On the other hand, if the interaction does exist but is a relatively rare event, occurring in, say, 1 in 5000 women, clinical studies such as those described in this article would not detect the interaction. The pharmacokinetic studies of simultaneous antibiotic and oral contraceptive ingestion, and the retrospective studies of pregnancy rates among oral contraceptive users exposed to antibiotics, all suffer from one potential common weakness, i.e., their relatively small sample size. Sample sizes in the pharmacokinetic trials ranged from 7 to 24 participants, whereas the largest retrospective study of pregnancy rates still evaluated less than 800 total contraceptive users. Still, the incidence of such a rare interaction would not differ from the accepted normal failure rate of oral contraceptive therapy. The medico-legal ramifications of what looks like at best a rare interaction remains somewhat "murky." On one hand, we have medico-legal experts advising the profession to exercise caution

  5. Age-related oral changes.

    LENUS (Irish Health Repository)

    Mckenna, Gerald

    2010-10-01

    Age-related oral changes are seen in the oral hard and soft tissues as well as in bone, the temporomandibular joints and the oral mucosa. As older patients retain their natural teeth for longer, the clinical picture consists of normal physiological age changes in combination with pathological and iatrogenic effects. Clinical Relevance: With an ageing population retaining more of its natural teeth for longer, dental professionals should expect to observe oral age changes more frequently.

    Alnazzawi, Ahmad

    2018-01-01

    There is a substantial proportion of the population using fixed metallic oral appliances, such as crowns and bridges, which are composed of various dental alloys. These restorations may be associated with a number of effects on oral health with variable degrees of severity, to review potential effects of using fixed metallic oral appliances, fabricated from various alloys. The MEDLINE/PubMed database was searched using certain combinations of keywords related to the topic. The search revealed that burning mouth syndrome, oral pigmentation, hypersensitivity and lichenoid reactions, and genotoxic and cytotoxic effects are the major potential oral health changes associated with fixed prosthodontic appliances. Certain oral disorders are associated with the use of fixed metallic oral appliances. Patch test is the most reliable method that can be applied for identifying metal allergy, and the simultaneous use of different alloys in the mouth is discouraged.

    The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of Human Immune Virus (HIV) related oral lesions and their association with Cluster of Differentiation 4 (CD4+) count among treatment naïve HIV positive patients. This was a descriptive and analytical cross sectional study. Participants were 346 treatment naïve HIV positive adult patients. These were consecutively recruited from Hoima Regional Referral hospital between March and April 2012. Data collection involved interviews, oral examinations and laboratory analysis. A total of 168(48.6%) participants had oral lesions. The four commonest lesions were oral candidiasis (24.9%, CI = 20.6-29.7%), melanotic hyperpigmentation (17.3%, CI = 13.7-21.7%), kaposi sarcoma (9.3%, CI = 6.6-12.8%) and Oral Hairy Leukoplakia (OHL) (5.5%, CI = 3.5-8.4%).

    2010-11-01

    This pilot study was performed to test the hypothesis that an orthodontic oral appliance (OA) that is designed to work against the backwardly directed forces on the upper incisors may counteract the reduction in overjet from these devices. Thirty patients with normal bites, good oral health, and milder sleep apnea were randomized to treatment with either OAs or orthodontic OAs. Bite changes were evaluated on plaster casts and radiographs and by questionnaires after a mean of 2.4 years in 19 frequent users. Four of nine patients in the orthodontic OA group increased their overjet by > or =0.4 mm, while none of the 10 patients in the OA group experienced that effect. Only the orthodontic OA increases the overjet; this design may therefore be beneficial to patients at risk of negative effects on their bite during OA treatment.

    Immune mediated diseases of oral cavity are uncommon. The lesions may be self-limiting and undergo remission spontaneously. Among the immune mediated oral lesions the most important are lichen planus, pemphigus, erythema multiformi, epidermolysis bullosa, systemic lupus erythematosis. Cellular and humoral mediated immunity play a major role directed against epithelial and connective tissue in chronic and recurrent patterns. Confirmatory diagnosis can be made by biopsy, direct and indirect immunoflouresence, immune precipitation and immunoblotting. Therapeutic agents should be selected after thorough evaluation of immune status through a variety of tests and after determining any aggravating or provoking factors. Early and appropriate diagnosis is important for proper treatment planning contributing to better prognosis and better quality of life of patient.

    The discovery during the first half of the 20th century of the link between natural fluoride, adjusted fluoride levels in drinking water and reduced dental caries prevalence proved to be a stimulus for worldwide on-going research into the role of fluoride in improving oral health. Epidemiological studies of fluoridation programmes have confirmed their safety and their effectiveness in controlling dental caries. Major advances in our knowledge of how fluoride impacts the caries process have led to the development, assessment of effectiveness and promotion of other fluoride vehicles including salt, milk, tablets, toothpaste, gels and varnishes. In 1993, the World Health Organization convened an Expert Committee to provide authoritative information on the role of fluorides in the promotion of oral health throughout the world (WHO TRS 846, 1994). This present publication is a revision of the original 1994 document, again using the expertise of researchers from the extensive fields of knowledge required to successfully implement complex interventions such as the use of fluorides to improve dental and oral health. Financial support for research into the development of these new fluoride strategies has come from many sources including government health departments as well as international and national grant agencies. In addition, the unique role which industry has played in the development, formulation, assessment of effectiveness and promotion of the various fluoride vehicles and strategies is noteworthy. This updated version of 'Fluoride and Oral Health' has adopted an evidence-based approach to its commentary on the different fluoride vehicles and strategies and also to its recommendations. In this regard, full account is taken of the many recent systematic reviews published in peer reviewed literature.

    Full Text Available Introduction: Fractal analysis (FA quantifies complex geometric structures by generating a fractal dimension (FD, which can measure the complexity of mucosa. FA is a quantitative tool used to measure the complexity of self-similar or semi-self-similar structures. Aim and Objective: The study was done to perform the FA of oral mucosa with keratotic changes, as it is also made up of self-similar tissues, and thus, its FD can be calculated. Results: In oral leukoplakia, keratinization increases the complexity of mucosa, which denotes fractal geometry. We evaluated and compared pretreated and post-treated oral leukoplakia in 50 patients with clinically proven oral leukoplakia and analyzed the normal oral mucosa and lesional or keratinized mucosa in oral leukoplakia patients through FA using box counting method. Conclusion: FA using the fractal geometry is an efficient, noninvasive prediction tool for early detection of oral leukoplakia and other premalignant conditions in patients.

    To evaluate oral cancer-related screening practices of Oral Health Professionals (OHPs - dentists, dental hygienists, dental therapists, and oral health therapists) practising in Victoria, Australia. A 36-item survey was distributed to 3343 OHPs. Items included socio-demographic and work-related characteristics; self-assessed knowledge of oral cancer; perceived level of confidence in discussing oral health behaviors with patients; oral cancer screening practices; and self-evaluated need for additional training on screening procedures for oral cancer. A total of 380 OHPs responded this survey, achieving an overall response rate of 9.4%. Forty-five were excluded from further analysis. Of these 335 OHP, 72% were dentists; (n = 241); either GDP or Dental Specialists; 13.7% (n = 46) were dental hygienists; 12.2% (n = 41) were oral health therapists, and the remaining 2.1% (n = 7) were dental therapists. While the majority (95.2%) agreed that oral cancer screening should be routinely performed, in actual practice around half (51.4%) screened all their patients. Another 12.8% "Very rarely" conducted screening examinations. The probability of routinely conducting an oral cancer screening was explored utilising Logistic Regression Analysis. Four variables remained statistically significant (p oral cancer screening rose with increasing levels of OHPs' confidence in oral cancer-related knowledge (OR = 1.35; 95% CI: 1.09-1.67) and with higher levels of confidence in discussing oral hygiene practices with patients (OR = 1.25; 95% CI: 1.03-1.52). Results also showed that dental specialists were less likely to perform oral cancer screening examinations compared with other OHPs (OR = 0.18; 95% CI: 0.07-0.52) and the likelihood of performing an oral cancer screening decreased when the "patient complained of a problem" (OR = 0.21; 95% CI: 0.10-0.44). Only half the study sample performed oral cancer screening examinations for all of their patients

    Oral cancers are attributed to a number of causal agents including tobacco, alcohol, human papillomavirus (HPV), and areca (betel) nut. Although betel nut chewing has been established as an independent cause of oral cancer, the mechanisms of carcinogenesis are poorly understood. An investigation was undertaken to evaluate the influence of betel nut chewing on the oral microbiome and oral premalignant lesions. Study participants were recruited from a dental clinic in Guam. Structured interviews and oral examinations were performed. Oral swabbing and saliva samples were evaluated by 454 pyrosequencing of the V3- V5 region of the 16S rRNA bacterial gene and genotyped for HPV. One hundred twenty-two adults were enrolled including 64 current betel nut chewers, 37 former chewers, and 21 with no history of betel nut use. Oral premalignant lesions, including leukoplakia and submucous fibrosis, were observed in 10 chewers. Within-sample bacterial diversity was significantly lower in long-term (≥10 years) chewers vs. never chewers and in current chewers with oral lesions vs. individuals without lesions. Between-sample bacterial diversity based on Unifrac distances significantly differed by chewing status and oral lesion status. Current chewers had significantly elevated levels of Streptococcus infantis and higher and lower levels of distinct taxa of the Actinomyces and Streptococcus genera. Long-term chewers had reduced levels of Parascardovia and Streptococcus. Chewers with oral lesions had significantly elevated levels of Oribacterium, Actinomyces, and Streptococcus, including Streptococcus anginosus. In multivariate analyses, controlling for smoking, oral HPV, S.anginosus, and S. infantis levels, current betel nut chewing remained the only predictor of oral premalignant lesions. Our study provides evidence that betel nut chewing alters the oral bacterial microbiome including that of chewers who develop oral premalignant lesions. Nonetheless, whether microbial changes

    1989-01-01

    This study, which is motivated by the substantial morbidity of local signs of mucositis and generalized symptoms that result from mucositis induced by therapeutic irradiation, has the following objectives: To investigate if it is possible to prevent irradiation mucositis via oral flora elimination, and, if it is true that flora plays a role in irradiation mucositis, what fraction of the oral flora may be involved; to evaluate oral Gram-negative bacillary carriage; to investigate the possibility to eradicate Gram-negative bacilli from the oral cavity; to evaluate oral yeast carriage; to investigate the possibility to eradicate yeasts stomatitis and the 'selectivity' of elimination of flora. Two methods are described for monitoring alterations of mucositis of the oral cavity and changes in oral flora. Chlorhexidine has been tested as the commonly used prophylaxis. The effect of chlorhexidine 0.1% rinses on oral flora and mucositis has been studied in a prospective placebo controlled double blind randomized programme. The results of the influence of saliva on the antimicrobial activity of chlorhexidine and the results of selective elimination of oral flora in irradiated patients who have head and neck cancer are reported. Salivary inactivation of the topical antimicrobials used for selective elimination of oral flora has been studied and the results are reported. Finally, the objectives that have been achieved (or not) are delineated. The significance of the results of the study are discussed in terms of published information and further lines of research are suggested. (author). 559 refs.; 29 figs.; 20 tabs

    Full Text Available Existem, atualmente, centenas de peptídios e proteínas com ação terapêutica. Os obstáculos inerentes à sua administração oral têm impulsionado a investigação de estratégias capazes de os ultrapassar. Nesta revisão são abordados estes dois aspectos. A microencapsulação, pela sua versatilidade, sobressai entre as demais estratégias, afirmando-se como escolha potencial na administração oral de fármacos peptídicos.There are hundreds of peptides and proteins clinically relevant. The difficulties associated with their oral administration have been responsible for the major efforts in developing ways to improve oral bioavailability. Both these subjects are described in this review. The potentiality of microencapsulation presents this technique as a privileged approach for the oral delivery of peptide and protein drugs.

    The aim of this study was to investigate if and how the personality traits Negative Affectivity (NA) and self-esteem influenced the Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) in patients receiving oral rehabilitation. OHRQoL was measured by the Oral Health Impact Profile 49 (OHIP-49), NA with a short form of the Eysenck Personality Inventory Questionnaire (EPI-Q), and self-esteem with Rosenbergs Self-Esteem Scale (RSES) in 66 patients treated with removable dental prosthesis (RDP). The minimally important difference (MID), effect size (ES), and standard error of the measurement (SEM) were used to clinically interpret the patient-reported effect. The OHIP-49 score was significantly higher and exceeded the MID pre- and post-treatment in participants with high EPI-Q and low RSES score compared to participants with low EPI-Q and high RSES score. The improvement in OHIP-49 score was significant and not limited by high EPI-Q and low RSES score. High EPI-Q score was associated high improvement in OHIP-49 score and the ES of the improvement in participants with high EPI-Q was large and exceeded the MID and SEM. Treatment with RDP improves the OHRQoL regardless of level of NA and self-esteem. High NA is associated with a large effect, but both high NA and low self-esteem is associated with poorer OHRQoL both before and after treatment.

    Thromboembolic disease (TED) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The hallmark of oral long-term anticoagulant therapy has been the use of vitamin K antagonists, whose anticoagulant effect is exerted inhibiting vitamin K epoxide reductase. Warfarin and acenocoumarol are the most commonly used. In the last five years several new drugs for long term anticoagulation have been developed, which can inhibit single clotting factors with the purpose of improving drug therapeutic range and, ideally, minimizing bleeding risks. This review addresses the state of the art on the clinical use of inhibitors of activated factor X and thrombin.

Apesar disso, do ponto de vista dos estudos de gênero e da história das ciências, é importante compreender essa presença para entender e reconhecer o papel das mulheres na sociedade e em particular no meio científico. Nosso propósito não foi o de realizar um balanço aprofundado sobre a carreira seguida pelas engenheiras agrônomas. Outrossim, reunimos o que falavam sobre elas as poesias, os ofícios, algumas fotos e figuras, relacionando essas representações ao processo de institucionalização das ciências agrícolas no Brasil no período.Our research on the historical trajectory of four Brazilian agricultural schools in the thirties and forties of the twentieth century does not show a significant number of women in the profession. Nevertheless, rethinking these data, inspired by the history of science and gender studies, it is possible to understand the meanings, and the role played of those women within society, and in the scientific milieu. We collected and analyzed speeches, poetry, official documents, images, and photos, which led to a reflection on these representations, as well as the process of institutionalization of agricultural science.

    Ionizing radiation used in treating the head and neck area produces oral side effects such as mucositis, salivary changes, trismus and radiation caries. Sequelae of cancer chemotherapy often include oral stomatitis, myelosuppression and immunosuppression. Infections of dental origin in compromised patients are potentially lethal. Specific programs to eliminate dental pathology before radiation and chemotherapy, and to maintain oral hygiene during and after therapy, will minimize these complications

    To determine the prevalence and clinicopathologic features of the oral cancer patients. Biopsy records of the participating institutions were reviewed for oral cancer cases diagnosed from 2005 to 2014. Demographic data and site of the lesions were collected. Sites of the lesion were subdivided into lip, tongue, floor of the mouth, gingiva, alveolar mucosa, palate, buccal/labial mucosa, maxilla and mandible. Oral cancer was subdivided into 7 categories: epithelial tumors, salivary gland tumors, hematologic tumors, bone tumors, mesenchymal tumors, odontogenic tumors, and others. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics using SPSS software version 17.0. Of the 474,851 accessioned cases, 6,151 cases (1.30%) were diagnosed in the category of oral cancer. The mean age of the patients was 58.37±15.77 years. A total of 4,238 cases (68.90%) were diagnosed in males, whereas 1911 cases (31.07%) were diagnosed in females. The male-to-female ratio was 2.22:1. The sites of predilection for oral cancer were tongue, labial/buccal mucosa, gingiva, palate, and alveolar mucosa, respectively. The three most common oral cancer in the descending order of frequency were squamous cell carcinoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Although the prevalence of oral cancer is not high compared to other entities, oral cancer pose significant mortality and morbidity in the patients, especially when discovered late in the course of the disease. This study highlights some anatomical locations where oral cancers are frequently encountered. As a result, clinicians should pay attention to not only teeth, but oral mucosa especially in the high prevalence area as well since early detection of precancerous lesions or cancers in the early stage increase the chance of patient being cured and greatly reduce the mortality and morbidity. This study also shows some differences between pediatric and elderly oral cancer patients as well as between Asian and non-Asian oral cancer patients.

    Recent studies suggest that placenta may harbour a unique microbiome that may have origin in maternal oral microbiome. Although the major physiological and hormonal adjustments observed in pregnant women lead to biochemical and microbiological modifications of the oral environment, very few studies evaluated the changes suffered by the oral microbiota throughout pregnancy. So, the aim of our study was to evaluate oral yeast colonization throughout pregnancy and to compare it with non-pregnant women. The oral yeast colonization was assessed in saliva of 30 pregnant and non-pregnant women longitudinally over a 6-months period. Demographic information was collected, a non-invasive intra-oral examination was performed and saliva flow and pH were determined. Pregnant and non-pregnant groups were similar regarding age and level of education. Saliva flow rate did not differ, but saliva pH was lower in pregnant than in non-pregnant women. Oral yeast prevalence was higher in pregnant than in non-pregnant women, either in the first or in the third trimester, but did not attain statistical significance. In individuals colonized with yeast, the total yeast quantification (Log10CFU/mL) increase from the 1st to the 3rd trimester in pregnant women, but not in non-pregnant women. Pregnancy may favour oral yeast growth that may be associated with an acidic oral environment.

    Dental caries is closely associated with the microbial disequilibrium between acidogenic/aciduric pathogens and alkali-generating commensal residents within the dental plaque. Fluoride is a widely used anticaries agent, which promotes tooth hard-tissue remineralization and suppresses bacterial activities. Recent clinical trials have shown that oral hygiene products containing both fluoride and arginine possess a greater anticaries effect compared with those containing fluoride alone, indicating synergy between fluoride and arginine in caries management. Here, we hypothesize that arginine may augment the ecological benefit of fluoride by enriching alkali-generating bacteria in the plaque biofilm and thus synergizes with fluoride in controlling dental caries. Specifically, we assessed the combinatory effects of NaF/arginine on planktonic and biofilm cultures of Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sanguinis, and Porphyromonas gingivalis with checkerboard microdilution assays. The optimal NaF/arginine combinations were selected, and their combinatory effects on microbial composition were further examined in single-, dual-, and 3-species biofilm using bacterial species-specific fluorescence in situ hybridization and quantitative polymerase chain reaction. We found that arginine synergized with fluoride in suppressing acidogenic S. mutans in both planktonic and biofilm cultures. In addition, the NaF/arginine combination synergistically reduced S. mutans but enriched S. sanguinis within the multispecies biofilms. More importantly, the optimal combination of NaF/arginine maintained a "streptococcal pressure" against the potential growth of oral anaerobe P. gingivalis within the alkalized biofilm. Taken together, we conclude that the combinatory application of fluoride and arginine has a potential synergistic effect in maintaining a healthy oral microbial equilibrium and thus represents a promising ecological approach to caries management. © International & American

    Full Text Available Abstract. Oral allergy syndrome (OAS is defined as a set of clinical manifestations caused by IgE-mediated allergic  reactions  that  occur  at  oral  and  pharyngeal  mucosae  in  the  patients  with  pollen  sensitization  after ingestion of certain fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices. OAS arises from cross-reactivity between specific pollen and food allergens, due to similarity of a configuration and amino acid sequence of allergenic molecules. OAS is considered as class II food allergy, being caused by thermo- and chemolabile allergens, and it is rarely combined with generalized manifestations of food allergy. Prevalence and spectrum of the causal allergens depend on a kind of pollen sensitization. In Moscow region, as well as in Northern Europe, allergic sensitization most commonly occurs to the pollen of leaf trees, whereas OAS is mostly connected with ingestion of fruits from Rosaceae family and nuts. Since last years, a newly developed technique of component-resolved molecular diagnosis (CR diagnostics allows of more precise detection of OAS-causing allergen molecules. These data are of extreme importance for administration of adequate nutritional therapy and prediction of SIT efficiency. (Med. Immunol., 2011, vol. 13, N 1, pp 17-28

    The oral cavity is inhibited by many of the bacterial species. Some of them have a key role in the development of oral disease. Interrelationships between oral microbiome and systemic conditions such as head-and-neck cancer have become increasingly appreciated in recent years. Emerging evidence also suggests a link between periodontal disease and oral cancer, and the explanation being that chronic inflammation could be a major factor in both diseases. Squamous cell carcinoma is that the most frequently occurring malignancy of the oral cavity and adjacent sites, representing over 90% of all cancers. The incidence of oral cancer is increasing, significantly among young people and women. Worldwide there are 350,000-400,000 new cases diagnosed every year. Bacteria, viruses, and fungi are strongly implicated as etiological factors in certain cancers. In this review we will discuss the association between the development of oral cancer in potentially malignant oral lesions with chronic periodontitis, chronic Porphyromonas gingivalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, candida, other microbes and described mechanisms which may be involved in these carcinoma.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE:To evaluate public health dentistry practices of two different family health models. METHODS: Qualitative study conducted with data obtained from focus groups consisting of 58 dentists working in the Family Health Strategy for at least three years between August-October, 2006. The Paideia Family Health Approach was used in the city of Campinas and the Oral Health Initiative as part of the Family Health Strategy was implemented in the city of Curitiba, Southeastern and Southern Brazil, respectively. Data was analyzed using the hermeneutic-dialectic method. Analysis indicators were employed to indicate backwardness, stagnation or progress in oral health practices effective from the implementation of the strategies referred. The indicators used were: work process; interdisciplinary approach; territorialization; capacity building of human resources; health promotion practices; and responsiveness to users' demands. RESULTS: There was progress in user access to services, humanization of health care, patient welcoming and patient-provider relationship. The results related to health promotion practices, territorialization, interdisciplinary approach and resource capacity building indicated a need for technical and operational enhancements in both cities. CONCLUSIONS: Both models have brought about important advances in terms of increased access to services and humanization of health care. Universal access to oral health at all levels of complexity was not achieved in both cities studied. Local health managers and oral health program coordinators must bring more weight to bear in the arena that defines public policy priorities.OBJETIVO: Evaluar prácticas de salud bucal colectiva de dos modelos de atención a la salud familiar.

    2000-06-01

    Different side effects of drugs have been described in the oral cavity, including oral ulcerations. Direct contact between drugs and oral mucosa may induce chemical burn or local hypersensitivity. Less frequently, these drug-induced oral ulcerations are part of a complex reaction with cutaneous or systemic manifestations. Sometimes, one or more oral ulcerations appear as the main side-effect of a drug, or exceptionally as solitary lesions. Solitary oral ulcerations usually appear after few weeks of treatment. In most of cases, these lesions resist to conventional treatments, with a rapid healing following the suppression of the responsible drug. This diagnosis is usually difficult, particularly with patients receiving multiple drug therapy. Besides, special attention must be paid to new drugs. Oral ulcerations following symptoms of burning mouth, metallic taste, dysgueusia or agueusia are strongly suggestive of a pharmacological origin. Most of the molecules able to induce solitary oral ulcerations are commonly prescribed in a) rheumatology: NSAI (diclofenac, flurbiprofen, indomethacin, naproxen), long-term rheumatoid arthritis therapy (azathioprine, methotrexate, penicillamine, gold compounds, tiopronin); b) cardiology: angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors (captopril, enalapril), angiotensin 2-receptor antagonist (losartan), anti-angorous (nicorandil), c) psychiatry: antidepressants (fluoxetine, lithium), d) AIDS therapy (foscarnet, zalcitabine).

  2. The Oral Paradigm and Snapchat

    Full Text Available In this short essay, I argue that the ephemeral nature of emerging instant-messaging applications, such as Snapchat, applies an oral paradigm. While online discourse of computer-mediated communication shares many qualities with oral communication, the case of ephemeral applications is unique, as the oral features are already integrated in the application technology design and as orality is often implemented on highly visual products. Snapchat applies technology that fades visual contents as if they were spoken words fading in the air after utterance. Moreover, Snapchat’s promise to delete all messages from its database after they are viewed echoes a key characteristic of primary oral culture: that is, the inability (and in our case, the obligation not to store knowledge. In this, Snapchat demonstrates counter-logic to the contemporary grammar of new media, which is based on information aggregation.

    2017-12-30

    Vitamin K antagonists were the only choice for chronic oral anticoagulation for more than half a century. Over the past few years, direct oral anticoagulants have emerged, including one direct thrombin inhibitor (dabigatran etexilate) and three factor Xa inhibitors (apixaban, edoxaban and rivaroxaban). In randomised controlled trials comparing direct oral anticoagulants with traditional vitamin K antagonists, the direct oral anticoagulants all showed a favourable benefit-risk balance in their safety and efficacy profile, in prevention of thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation and in the prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism and acute coronary syndrome. In 2008, dabigatran was the first direct oral anticoagulant approved by the European Medicine Agency. Subsequently, rivaroxaban, apixaban and edoxaban were also authorised. This article reviews the evidence related to the use of these drugs. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier España, S.L.U. All rights reserved.

    Candidiasis, an often encountered oral disease, has been increasing in frequency. Most commonly caused by the overgrowth of Candida albicans, oral candidiasis can be divided into several categories including acute and chronic forms, and angular cheilitis. Risk factors for the development of oral candidiasis include immunosuppression, wearing of dentures, pharmacotherapeutics, smoking, infancy and old age, endocrine dysfunction, and decreased salivation. Oral candidiasis may be asymptomatic. More frequently, however, it is physically uncomfortable, and the patient may complain of burning mouth, dysgeusia, dysphagia, anorexia, and weight loss, leading to nutritional deficiency and impaired quality of life. A plethora of antifungal treatments are available. The overall prognosis of oral candidiasis is good, and rarely is the condition life threatening with invasive or recalcitrant disease.

    Forensic odontology is the subdiscipline of dentistry which analyses dental evidence in the interest of justice. Oral pathology is the subdiscipline of dentistry that deals with the pathology affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions. This subdiscipline is utilized for identification through oral and maxillofacial pathologies with associated syndromes, enamel rod patterns, sex determination using exfoliative cytology, identification from occlusal morphology of teeth, and deoxyribonucleic acid profiling from teeth. This subdiscipline is also utilized for age estimation studies which include Gustafson's method, incremental lines of Retzius, perikymata, natal line formation in teeth, neonatal line, racemization of collagen in dentin, cemental incremental lines, thickness of the cementum, and translucency of dentin. Even though the expertise of an oral pathologist is not taken in forensic investigations, this paper aims to discuss the role of oral pathology in forensic investigation.

There have been cases reported in the esophagus, larynx, scalp, nail, cutaneous areas, especially arms and wrists, trunk. There is reported malignant transformation that essentiates careful examination, treatment protocol and regular follow-up sessions. This article throws light on the disease condition of oral lichen planus and oral lichenoid reaction that is essential for the differentiation and treatment. PMID:26015696

    Organisms residing in the oral cavity (oral microbiota) contribute to health and disease, and influence diseases like gingivitis, periodontitis, and oral candidiasis (the most common oral complication of HIV-infection). These organisms are also associated with cancer and other systemic diseases including upper respiratory infections. There is limited knowledge regarding how oral microbes interact together and influence the host immune system. Characterizing the oral microbial community (oral microbiota) in health and disease represents a critical step in gaining insight into various members of this community. While most of the studies characterizing oral microbiota have focused on bacterial community, there are few encouraging studies characterizing the oral mycobiome (the fungal component of the oral microbiota). Our group recently characterized the oral mycobiome in health and disease focusing on HIV. In this chapter we will describe the methods used by our group for characterization of the oral mycobiome.

    The purpose of this multicentre study was to determine the incidence of oral candidiasis in patients treated with topical steroids for oral lichen planus (OLP) and to determine whether the application of a concurrent antifungal therapy prevented the development of an oral candidiasis in these patients. Records of 315 patients with OLP seen at four Oral Medicine practices treated for at least 2 weeks with steroids with and without the use of an antifungal regimen were retrospectively reviewed. The overall incidence of oral fungal infection in those treated with steroid therapy for OLP was 13.6%. There was no statistically significant difference in the rate of oral candidiasis development in those treated with an antifungal regimen vs those not treated prophylactically (14.3% vs 12.6%) (P = 0.68). Despite the use of various regimens, none of the preventive antifungal strategies used in this study resulted in a significant difference in the rate of development of an oral candidiasis in patients with OLP treated with steroids. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

Intravenous (IV epoprostenol was the first PAH specific therapy and to date, remains the only treatment to demonstrate a mortality benefit. Because of the inherent complexities and risks of treating patients with continuous infusion IV therapy, there is great interest in the development of an oral prostacyclin analog that could mimic the benefits of IV therapy. Herein, we highlight the development of oral prostacyclin therapy, focusing on oral treprostinil, the only US Food and Drug Administration approved oral prostacyclin. Recent Phase III clinical trials have shown the drug to improve exercise tolerance in treatment-naïve PAH patients, but not patients on background oral therapy. Oral treprostinil appears to be most efficacious at higher doses, but its side effect profile and complexities with dosing complicate its use. While oral treprostinil’s current therapeutic role in PAH remains unclear, ongoing studies of this class of medication should help clarify their role in the treatment of PAH.

    Background To determine the prevalence and clinicopathologic features of the oral cancer patients. Material and Methods Biopsy records of the participating institutions were reviewed for oral cancer cases diagnosed from 2005 to 2014. Demographic data and site of the lesions were collected. Sites of the lesion were subdivided into lip, tongue, floor of the mouth, gingiva, alveolar mucosa, palate, buccal/labial mucosa, maxilla and mandible. Oral cancer was subdivided into 7 categories: epithelial tumors, salivary gland tumors, hematologic tumors, bone tumors, mesenchymal tumors, odontogenic tumors, and others. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics using SPSS software version 17.0. Results Of the 474,851 accessioned cases, 6,151 cases (1.30%) were diagnosed in the category of oral cancer. The mean age of the patients was 58.37±15.77 years. A total of 4,238 cases (68.90%) were diagnosed in males, whereas 1911 cases (31.07%) were diagnosed in females. The male-to-female ratio was 2.22:1. The sites of predilection for oral cancer were tongue, labial/buccal mucosa, gingiva, palate, and alveolar mucosa, respectively. The three most common oral cancer in the descending order of frequency were squamous cell carcinoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Conclusions Although the prevalence of oral cancer is not high compared to other entities, oral cancer pose significant mortality and morbidity in the patients, especially when discovered late in the course of the disease. This study highlights some anatomical locations where oral cancers are frequently encountered. As a result, clinicians should pay attention to not only teeth, but oral mucosa especially in the high prevalence area as well since early detection of precancerous lesions or cancers in the early stage increase the chance of patient being cured and greatly reduce the mortality and morbidity. This study also shows some differences between pediatric and elderly oral cancer patients as well as

    To determine whether oral administration of 3% hypertonic saline (HTS) is as efficacious as intravenous (IV) 3% saline in reversing symptoms of mild-to-moderate symptomatic exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) in athletes during and after a long-distance triathlon. Noninferiority, open-label, parallel-group, randomized control trial to IV or oral HTS. We used permuted block randomization with sealed envelopes, containing the word either "oral" or "IV." Annual long-distance triathlon (3.8-km swim, 180-km bike, and 42-km run) at Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. Twenty race finishers with mild to moderately symptomatic EAH. Age, sex, race finish time, and 9 clinical symptoms. Time from treatment to discharge. We successfully randomized 20 participants to receive either an oral (n = 11) or IV (n = 9) bolus of HTS. We performed venipuncture to measure serum sodium (Na) at presentation to the medical clinic and at time of symptom resolution after the intervention. The average time from treatment to discharge was 75.8 minutes (SD 29.7) for the IV treatment group and 50.3 minutes (SD 26.8) for the oral treatment group (t test, P = 0.02). Serum Na before and after treatment was not significantly different in both groups. There was no difference on presentation between groups in age, sex, or race finish time, both groups presented with an average of 6 symptoms. Oral HTS is effective in reversing symptoms of mild-to-moderate hyponatremia in EAH.

    Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. It accounts for 2.5% of all new cancer cases and 1.9% of all cancer deaths annually. More than 90% of oral cancers (occurring in the mouth, lip, and tongue) are oral squamous cell carcinoma. The incidence rate of oral cancer varies widely throughout the world, with an evident prevalence in South Asian countries. This high incidence occurs in correlation with oral cancer-associated behaviors such as alcohol, tobacco use. Researchers have reported that these behaviors lead to genetic variations in tumor suppressor genes (APC, p53), proto-oncogenes (Myc), oncogene (Ras) and genes controlling normal cellular processes (EIF3E, GSTM1). Processes such as segregation of chromosomes, genomic copy number, loss of heterozygosity, telomere stabilities, regulations of cell-cycle checkpoints, DNA damage repairs and defects in notch signaling pathways are involved in causing oral cancer. In order to develop preventive and therapeutic options, it is necessary to comprehend the basic molecular mechanisms forcing oral tumorigenesis. This review examines, in detail, the mechanisms of genetic alteration which are considered to be responsible for the initiation of oral cancer. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    The aim of this study was to quantify the microorganisms Streptococcus mutans and Candida sp in the oral cavity of patients with oropharynx carcinoma, before, during and after radiotherapy, and to correlate the results with salivary factors such as pH, buffer capacity and flow rate. Saliva samples were collected, diluted and inoculated in SB-20 agar and in Sabouraud agar, for Streptococcus mutans and Candida sp, respectively. Previously to dilution, the concentrated saliva was analyzed, and the salivary factors were determined. After the growth of colonies, the number of microorganisms was determined in CFU/ml. The analysis of the results allowed to conclude that the salivary factors are related to the presence of microorganisms, and that the number of CFU/ml increased as salivary flow rate decreased. The effects of radiation compromised salivary homeostasis and favored the increase of infection by yeasts and bacteria. (author)

Uma das sugestões neste sentido seria a utilização dos serviços prestados nas universidades públicas, que além de formar recursos humanos, podem abrir espaço para uma política social paralela. Este artigo apresenta o exemplo da clínica de ortodontia da Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora, que, por ser um pólo de referência regional em atenção à saúde bucal, vem participando das ações públicas de saúde bucal, através dos serviços prestados à população. Expõe as diferentes faces das más-oclusões dentárias, que afetam as pessoas nos âmbitos social, psicológico e biológico, e faz uma leitura histórica da saúde bucal no Brasil com um recorte para a assistência ortodôntica, que, por real importância e por direitos constitucionais, deveria figurar entre os procedimentos cobertos pelo SUS. Idealiza-se um sistema de triagem para esses casos, abrangendo critérios econômico, biológico e psiscossocial, que aproxime a assistência à saúde bucal da eqüidade.Due to the great prevalence of malocclusions; to the great epidemic transformation of oral health, with the decreased number of decays, and based on the principles of the Brazilian Constitution of integrality and equity, it became necessary to incorporate orthodontics procedures in public health care.

    Ceres is one of the second generation heavy ion experiments at CERN's SPS. It is dedicated to the study of electron-positron pairs in relativistic nuclear collisions. NA45 is one of the seven experiments (NA44, NA45, NA49, NA50, NA52, WA97/NA57 and WA98) involved in CERN's Heavy Ion programme which provided evidence for the existence of a new state of matter, the quark-gluon plasma. In this state, quarks, instead of being bound up into more complex particles such as protons and neutrons, are liberated and roam freely. Theory predicts that this state must have existed at about 10 microseconds after the Big Bang, before the formation of matter as we know it today.

    The diagnosis between different diseases may be impaired by clinical and histopathologic similarities, as observed in the oral lichen planus (OLP) and oral lichenoid lesion (OLL). Inspite of similar clinicopathological features; etiology, diagnosis and prognosis differ which mandates separation of OLL from OLP. Hence, it is essential for the oral physician and oral pathologist to be familiarized with the individual variations among clinicopathological features of OLP and OLL as well as to obtain a thorough history and perform a complete mucocutaneous examination in addition to specific diagnostic testing. The difficulties faced to establish the diagnosis between these two pathologies are widely investigated in the literature with a lack of definite conclusion. This review is an attempt to throw some light on these clinicopathologic entities with the aim to resolve the diagnostic dilemma. PMID:26980966

    Full Text Available Angioleiomyomas are vascular variant of leiomyomas which are benign tumors of smooth muscle. They are exceedingly rare in the oral cavity. Malignant transformation of these tumors has also been reported occasionally which warrants knowledge of this soft tissue tumor. A 57 year old male patient reported with a 15 day history of an asymptomatic growth that had started insidiously in his lower left back tooth region. Clinical examination revealed a solitary, oval, sessile growth in the mandibular left retro molar region. Excisional biopsy was suggestive of Angioleiomyoma. A recurrence of the same was noted two months later which was also histopathologically reported as Angioleiomyoma. The same was confirmed using special stains. This case reports an unusual presentation of Angioleiomyoma with regards to both recurrence as well as rapid growth. It is important to be well aware of this uncommon entity as these tumors often can mimic or transform into malignancy. Precise clinicopathological examinations are therefore invaluable in establishing an accurate diagnosis and delivering suitable treatment.

    Abstract Oral contraceptives (OCs) following induced abortion offer a reliable method to avoid repeated abortion. However, limited data exist supporting the effective use of OCs postabortion. We conducted this systematic review and meta-analysis in the present study reported immediate administration of OCs or combined OCs postabortion may reduce vaginal bleeding time and amount, shorten the menstruation recovery period, increase endometrial thickness 2 to 3 weeks after abortion, and reduce the risk of complications and unintended pregnancies. A total of 8 major authorized Chinese and English databases were screened from January 1960 to November 2014. Randomized controlled trials in which patients had undergone medical or surgical abortions were included. Chinese studies that met the inclusion criteria were divided into 3 groups: administration of OC postmedical abortion (group I; n = 1712), administration of OC postsurgical abortion (group II; n = 8788), and administration of OC in combination with traditional Chinese medicine postsurgical abortion (group III; n = 19,707). In total, 119 of 6160 publications were included in this analysis. Significant difference was observed in group I for vaginal bleeding time (P = 0.0001), the amount of vaginal bleeding (P = 0.03), and menstruation recovery period (P abortion (P abortion, and reduce the risk of complications and unintended pregnancies.

    Running, Cordelia A

    2018-04-10

    Sensations experienced in the mouth influence food choices, both immediately and in the long term. Such sensations are themselves influenced by experience with flavors, the chemical environment of the mouth, genetics of receptors for flavors, and individual behavior in the chewing of food. Gustation, the sense of taste, yields information about nutrients, influences palatability, and feeds into the human body's preparation to receive those nutrients. Olfaction, the sense of smell, contributes enormously to defining and identifying food flavors (and is experienced even after placing food inside the mouth). Another vital component of food flavor is texture, which contributes to palatability, especially if a food's texture violates a person's expectations. Next, chemesthesis is the sense of chemically induced irritancy and temperature, for example spiciness and stinging. All of these sensations are potentially modified by saliva, the chemical and physical media of the mouth. As a person experiences the culmination of these oral sensations, modified through an individual's own unique saliva, the flavors in turn influence both what and how a person eats.

    Full Text Available Mycetoma is a pathological process in which eumycotic (fungal or actinomycotic causative agents from exogenous source produce grains. It is a localized chronic and deforming infectious disease of subcutaneous tissue, skin and bones. We report the first case of eumycetoma of the oral cavity in world literature. CASE REPORT: A 43-year-old male patient, complaining of swelling and fistula in the hard palate. On examination, swelling of the anterior and middle hard palate, with fistula draining a dark liquid was observed. The panoramic radiograph showed extensive radiolucent area involving the region of teeth 21-26 and the computerized tomography showed communication with the nasal cavity, suggesting the diagnosis of periapical cyst. Surgery was performed to remove the lesion. Histopathological examination revealed purulent material with characteristic grain. Gram staining for bacteria was negative and Grocott-Gomori staining for the detection of fungi was positive, concluding the diagnosis of eumycetoma. The patient was treated with ketoconazole for nine months, and was considered cured at the end of treatment. CONCLUSION: Histopathological examination, using histochemical staining, and direct microscopic grains examination can provide the distinction between eumycetoma and actinomycetoma accurately.

  19. Major Interaction between Warfarin and Na Valproate: A Case Report

    Full Text Available  Abstract: Warfarin is the most commonly used oral anticoagulant drug in clinical practice with extreme inter and intra-individual variation in pharmacokinetic properties. Na Valproate, a broad spectrum anticonvulsant agent, is best known for its enzyme inhibition properties and also displacement of protein binding sites. Interaction between Warfarin and psychotropic drugs including Valproate are important and perhaps under recognized. In this report, we present a 48 year old female patient with chief complaints of abdominal pain, tea-color urine, blurred vision and headache. She had been suffering from "migraine headache" for 15 years that was relatively well controlled with Na Valproate 200mg twice daily. She was experienced a deep vein thrombosis (DVT following oral contraceptive. For management of DVT, she was received Warfarin 5mg/day which was increased to 7.5 mg /day after 2 weeks. Three days after this increment of dose, her Prothrombin Time (PT rose to 35.3 seconds (three times of normal value and evidences of bleeding including hematuria and hematemesis were observed. Based on  the history and laboratory findings, "Warfarin toxicity" was the first impression and she was treated with fresh frozen plasma and vitamin K with a well recovery. This experience emphasizes the clinical significant interaction between Warfarin and Na Valproate, which may take place even with the usual doses of each agent.

    Full Text Available A proposta deste artigo é uma reflexão sobre o tratamento dado à oralidade na educação infantil. Tomou-se, como referência, a forma como os contos de fadas são apresentados aos alunos, pêlos professores. Foi analisada a abordagem dada pelo Referencial Curricular para Educação Infantil (1998 à linguagem oral e escrita, bem como trechos de entrevistas realizadas com professores de educação infantil, em uma cidade do interior paulista, como parte de uma pesquisa que resultou na dissertação de Mestrado da autora. Como resultados, percebemos que a escola, em sua função alfabetizadora e por acreditar que as crianças provêm de um meio sócio-cultural desfavorecido, valoriza a linguagem escrita e despreza a oralidade, que perde sua função auxiliar na construção simbólica da criança, o que facilitaria o próprio processo de alfabetização.The aim of this paper is a reflection on the treatment given to orality in infant education. One takes as a reference the way fairy tales are presented to the students by the teachers. The approach given by the Standard Curriculum for Infant Education (1998 was analyzed in relation to oral and written language. Parts of interviews concerning the acquisition of literacy, made with infant education teachers in a city of the state of São Paulo, Brazil, and which were part of the research that resulted in the author’s MA dissertation, were also analyzed. The results of this research show that the school, believing that the children come from an unfavorable social-cultural environment, gives more weight to the written language to the detriment of oral language when teaching how to read. By being played down, orality loses its auxiliary function in the child’s symbolic construction which could help in the acquisition of literacy.

    Hydroxyurea is an antimetabolite that is widely used in the treatment of many benign and malignant conditions. This drug is usually well tolerated but has a number of side effects that vary in incidence. In cases of clinically significant adverse events, hydroxyurea is usually discontinued either temporarily or permanently, depending on treatment need versus harm caused by side effects. Here, we report a case of oral ulceration associated with hydroxyurea treatment in a patient who had chronic myelogenous leukemia. The patient rapidly developed an oral ulcer 12 days after administration of the drug. Hydroxyurea was discontinued, and the oral lesion appreciably decreased in size and severity. Physicians and dentists should be aware of the association between hydroxyurea and oral lesions. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common non-communicable chronic diseases, which is the combined action of genetic factors, environmental factors and lifestyle. Specific conditions occur in the oral cavity in the course of diabetes that cause changes in all oral tissues with different symptoms and signs. Increased salivary glucose level is followed by increased accumulation of dental plaque and decreased resistance to noxious agents. The most common oral manifestations in diabetic patients include higher prevalence of periodontal desease, burning mouth syndrome, disruption in salivary flow, opportunistic infections, higher prevalence of denture stomatitis, oral lichen planus, fissured tongue, angular cheilitis etc. Dental interventions in patients with well-controlled diabetes are not different from those applied to nondiabetic patients. Regular monitoring of these patients is required because of the complications that can occur.

  14. Oral contraceptives and neuroactive steroids.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rapkin, Andrea J; Biggio, Giovanni; Concas, Alessandra

    2006-08-01

    A deregulation in the peripheral and brain concentrations of neuroactive steroids has been found in certain pathological conditions characterized by emotional or affective disturbances, including major depression and anxiety disorders. In this article we summarize data pertaining to the modulatory effects of oral contraceptive treatment on neuroactive steroids in women and rats. Given that the neuroactive steroids concentrations are reduced by oral contraceptives, together with the evidence that a subset of women taking oral contraceptives experience negative mood symptoms, we propose the use of this pharmacological treatment as a putative model to study the role of neuroactive steroids in the etiopathology of mood disorders. Moreover, since neuroactive steroids are potent modulators of GABA(A) receptor function and plasticity, the treatment with oral contraceptives might also represent a useful experimental model to further investigate the physiological role of these steroids in the modulation of GABAergic transmission.

  2. Peran 'Oral Splint' pada Bruxisme

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available Oral splints have been frequently used in the treatment of bruxism to protect teeth and periodontium from damage, but the mechanism of action and efficacy of oral splints remain controversial. It has been suggested that they can be used to treat bruxism, based on the assumption that the device can eliminate or remove occlusal interference. Currently there are no reliable data to support the assumption of occlusion as an etiologic factor for bruxism, because several other factors have a role in bruxism, such as psychiatric, neurological and systemic disorders. In this paper, the mechanism of action and efficacy of oral splints in bruxism are discussed. Conclusions: although oral splint may be beneficial in protecting the dentition, the efficacy of this device in reducing bruxism is still not confirmed. There are several aspects that would support the broad usage of oral splints in the treatment of bruxism, but there are also limitations associated with each of these aspects. In conclusion, oral splints can be considered as useful adjuncts in the management of sleep bruxism but not as a definitive treatment.DOI: 10.14693/jdi.v15i1.82

A total number of 120 children diagnosed as having oral malodor (oral malodor scores 2 and above) were included in the study. Children were then grouped under four oral hygiene categories (tooth brushing, tongue cleaning, mouth rinsing, and a combination group). There were 30 children in each group. The children were asked to perform oral hygiene methods individually and in combination. The children were then reassessed for oral malodor 2 h later. The results were analyzed and compared. Both individual oral hygiene measure or in combination of tooth brushing, tongue cleaning, and mouth rinsing; all were effective in reducing oral malodor. Significant reduction (P oral malodor was seen when all three oral hygiene measures performed together. Oral malodor was significantly reduced after performing oral hygiene measures individually, but reduced more when used in combination.

    200 patients, previously not treated, with advanced highly differentiated cancer of the oral cavity and pharynx have been palliatively irradiated in the Oncology Center in Cracow in the years 1976-1985. Megavoltage irradiation with fractionated doses 4-5 Gy up to the dose of 20 Gy to the tumor with 4-5 fractions during 4-7 days has been applied. 64 patients received 20 Gy as simple dose, in 65 cases such dose has been repeated after month. 71 patients have been irradiated for the third time with similar dose after another 1 month interval. Partial regression of 25-50% of the tumor volume has been obtained after the first series of irradiation in 19% of patients and more than 50% in 28% of patients, complete regression in 4% of patients. 15,5% of the total number of patients survived 1 year since the initiation of the irradiation, 5% without symptoms of the neoplasm. Worse prognosis is connected with major advancement of the tumor (T{sub 4}, N{sub 2}), poor general condition, cachexia and alcohol addition. Absence of improvement after the first series of irradiations indicates the non-effectiveness of the treatment. Palliative treatment by irradiation with high fractionated doses and planned interval is a safe and efficacious method. 1 fig., 6 tabs., 14 refs. (author).

    1985-05-01

    We have designed and implemented a minimum bias trigger together with a fiducial volume trigger for the experiment NA27, performed at the CERN SPS. A total of more than 3 million bubble chamber pictures have been taken with a triggered cross section smaller than 75% of the total inelastic cross section. Events containing charm particles were triggered with an efficiency of 98 +2 sub(-3)%. With the fiducial volume trigger, the probability for a picture to contain an interaction in the visible hydrogen increased from 47.3% to 59.5%, reducing film cost and processing effort with about 20%. The improvement in data taking rate is shown to be negligible. (author)

    Quando viam um cometa, os antigos gregos imaginavam uma estrela com uma vasta cabeleira. Não à toa, a palavra deriva do termo koma, que significa cabelo. Constituídos por fragmentos de gelo e gases, os cometas possuem um núcleo sólido, que pode ter vários quilômetros de diâmetro, e uma cauda que sempre aponta na direção contrária ao Sol, devido aos ventos solares. Graças à aparência de pontos luminosos em movimento (ao contrário de outros astros, que parecem estáticos), esses corpos celestes foram interpretados por diferentes povos com muito misticismo, inspirando mitos tanto de boas-novas como de maus presságios.

  12. NA48 prototype calorimeter

    CERN Multimedia

    1990-01-01

    This is a calorimeter, a detector which measures the energy of particles. When in use, it is filled with liquid krypton at -152°C. Electrons and photons passing through interact with the krypton, creating a shower of charged particles which are collected on the copper ribbons. The ribbons are aligned to an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre. The folding at each end allows them to be kept absolutely flat. Each shower of particles also creates a signal in scintillating material embedded in the support disks. These flashes of light are transmitted to electronics by the optical fibres along the side of the detector. They give the time at which the interaction occurred. The photo shows the calorimeter at NA48, a CERN experiment which is trying to understand the lack of anti-matter in the Universe today.

  13. Adolescents and oral contraceptives.

    Oral contraceptive (OC) options for adolescents are provides. Clarification for those desiring a birth control method is necessary and the benefits of decreased acne and dysmenorrhea with low dose OCs should be stressed along with the importance of compliance. A community effort is suggested to communicate the sexual and contraceptive alternatives, including abstinence and outercourse (sexual stimulation to orgasm without intercourse). Attention is given to concerns associated with teenage sexual activity, prevention of adolescent pregnancy, contraceptive options for the adolescent patient, adolescent attitudes toward birth control OCs, management of the adolescent OC user, manipulation of steroid components of OCs to respond to adolescent concerns, and other hormonal contraceptive options such as minipills or abstinence. The text is supplemented with tables: the % of US women by single years of age for 1971, 1976, 1979, and 1982; comparative pregnancy and abortion rates for the US and 5 other countries; federal cost for teen childbearing; adolescent nonhormonal contraceptive methods (advantages, disadvantages, and retail cost); checklist to identify those at risk for noncompliance with OCs; hormonal side effects of OCs; risks from OCs to adolescents; and benefits of OCs. Concern about adolescent pregnancy dates back to Aristotle. A modern profile shows girls form single-parent families are sexually active at an earlier age, adolescent mothers produce offspring who repeat the cycle, victims of sexual abuse are more likely to be sexually active, and teenagers in foster care are 4 times more likely to be sexually active and 8 times more likely to become pregnant. Prevention involves a multifaceted approach. OCs are the most appropriate contraceptive choice for adolescents. Frequency of intercourse is closely associated with OC use after approximately 15 months of unprotected sexual activity. At risk for noncompliance variables are scales of personality development

No desenvolvimento do projeto, realizaram-se oficinas na escola cujo tema principal abordado foi o processo de fabricação do chocolate, visto que o mesmo é um produto muito apreciado pelas adolescentes. Dentro dessa temática, foram trabalhadas as questões que envolvem conhecimentos das áreas de exatas e de engenharia, mais especificamente a Engenharia Ambiental. O projeto auxiliou na formação cidadã e também na escolha profissional das meninas. Muitas das alunas participantes nunca haviam tido contato direto com alunos graduandos de cursos na área das exatas. Mais ainda, este projeto oportunizou a aproximação da universidade com a comunidade externa.

    Individual bacteria and shifts in the composition of the microbiome have been associated with human diseases including cancer. To investigate changes in the microbiome associated with oral cancers, we profiled cancers and anatomically matched contralateral normal tissue from the same patient by sequencing 16S rDNA hypervariable region amplicons. In cancer samples from both a discovery and a subsequent confirmation cohort, abundance of Firmicutes (especially Streptococcus) and Actinobacteria (especially Rothia) was significantly decreased relative to contralateral normal samples from the same patient. Significant decreases in abundance of these phyla were observed for pre-cancers, but not when comparing samples from contralateral sites (tongue and floor of mouth) from healthy individuals. Weighted UniFrac principal coordinates analysis based on 12 taxa separated most cancers from other samples with greatest separation of node positive cases. These studies begin to develop a framework for exploiting the oral microbiome for monitoring oral cancer development, progression and recurrence. PMID:24887397

    Persistent infection with oral HPV16 is believed to drive the development of most oropharyngeal cancers. However, patterns of oral HPV16 persistence remain understudied, particularly among HIV-negative individuals. Oral HPV16 persistence was evaluated among 1,626 participants of the HPV Infection in Men (HIM) Study. Twenty-three oral HPV16-positive men who provided an oral gargle sample on ≥2 study visits were included in the analysis. Archived oral samples from all follow-up visits were tested for HPV16 using Linear Array and INNO-LiPA detection methods. Persistence was evaluated using consecutive HPV16-positive visits held approximately 6 months apart and using the Kaplan-Meier method. Oral HPV16-positive men were aged 18 to 64 years [median, 36 years; interquartile range (IQR), 25-42] and were followed for a median of 44.4 months (IQR, 29.9-49.5). Of 13 incident infections, 4 (30.8%) persisted ≥12 months, 1 (10.0%) persisted ≥24 months, and none persisted ≥36 months [median infection duration, 7.3 months; 95% confidence interval (CI), 6.4-NA)]. Of 10 prevalent infections, 9 (90.0%) persisted ≥12 months, 8 (80.0%) persisted ≥24 months, 4 (57.1%) persisted ≥36 months, and 2 (40.0%) persisted ≥48 months (median infection duration, NA). Twelve-month persistence of incident infections increased significantly with age (Ptrend = 0.028). Prevalent oral HPV16 infections in men persisted longer than newly acquired infections, and persistence appeared to increase with age. These findings may explain the high prevalence of oral HPV observed at older ages. Understanding oral HPV16 persistence will aid in the identification of men at high-risk of developing HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer. ©2015 American Association for Cancer Research.

  18. Alteration of aluminium inhibition of synaptosomal (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase by colestipol administration.

    The ability of aluminium to inhibit the (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase activity has been observed by several authors. During chronic dietary exposure to AlCl3, brain (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase activity drops, even if no alterations of catalytic subunit protein expression and of energy charge potential are observed. The aluminium effect on (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase activity seems to implicate the reduction of interacting protomers within the oligomeric ensemble of the membrane-bound (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase. The activity of (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase is altered by the microviscosity of lipid environment. We studied if aluminium inhibitory effect on (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase is modified by alterations in synaptosomal membrane cholesterol content. Adult male Wistar rats were submitted to chronic dietary AlCl3 exposure (0.03 g/day of AlCl3) and/or to colestipol, a hypolidaemic drug (0.31 g/day) during 4 months. The activity of (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase was studied in brain cortex synaptosomes with different cholesterol contents. Additionally, we incubate synaptosomes with methyl-β-cyclodextrin for both enrichment and depletion of membrane cholesterol content, with or without 300 μM AlCl3. This enzyme activity was significantly reduced by micromolar AlCl3 added in vitro and when aluminium was orally administered to rats. The oral administration of colestipol reduced the cholesterol content and concomitantly inhibited the (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase. The aluminium inhibitory effect on synaptosomal (Na(+)/K(+))ATPase was reduced by cholesterol depletion both in vitro and in vivo. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Pigmented oral lesions compose a large number of pathological entities, including exogenous pigmentat oral tattoos, such as amalgam and graphite tattoos. We report a rare case of a graphite tattoo on the palate of a 62-year-old patient with a history of pencil injury, compare it with amalgam tattoos, and determine the prevalence of oral tattoos in our Oral Pathology Service. We also compare the clinical and histological findings of grafite and amalgam tattoos. Oral tattoos affect women more frequently in the region of the alveolar ridge. Graphite tattoos occur in younger patients when compared with the amalgam type. Histologically, amalgam lesions represent impregnation of the reticular fibers of vessels and nerves with silver, whereas in cases of graphite tattoos, this impregnation is not observed, but it is common to observe a granulomatous inflammatory response, less evident in cases of amalgam tattoos. Both types of lesions require no treatment, but in some cases a biopsy may be done to rule out melanocytic lesions.

It is very common in Southeast Asia but has started to spread to Europe and North America. OSF can lead to squamous cell carcinoma, a risk that is further increased by concomitant tobacco consumption. OSF is a diagnosis based on clinical symptoms and confirmation by histopathology. Hypovascularity leading to blanching of the oral mucosa, staining of teeth and gingiva, and trismus are major symptoms. Major constituents of betel quid are arecoline from betel nuts and copper, which are responsible for fibroblast dysfunction and fibrosis. A variety of extracellular and intracellular signaling pathways might be involved. Treatment of OSF is difficult, as not many large, randomized controlled trials have been conducted. The principal actions of drug therapy include antifibrotic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxygen radical mechanisms. Potential new drugs are on the horizon. Surgery may be necessary in advanced cases of trismus. Prevention is most important, as no healing can be achieved with available treatments.

    The thermochemical interaction between the nuclear fuel (uranium and plutonium mixed oxides) and the sodium has been investigated and particularly the three phase diagrams: U - O - Na; Pu - O - Na; U,Pu - O - Na. High temperature neutron diffraction, microcalorimetry and powder X-ray diffraction were used for the characterization of the compounds synthetized. This study allowed to complete the knowledge about each of these diagrams and to measure some physical and thermal properties on the compounds. The limits on the modelization of the fuel-sodium interaction are discussed from the results of the UO 2 - Na reaction [fr

    Anxiety and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are considered aggravating factors for bruxism. We examined the influence of anxiety, depression and SSRI on bruxism in social phobia (SP). Twenty-three drug naïve, 17 SSRI-treated SP patients and 33 healthy controls underwent a psychiatric assessment and completed Leibowitz Social Anxiety Scale and Beck Depression Inventory. Oral parafunctional activity (PF) was evaluated by TM-dental examination and by a questionnaire. Drug- naïve and SSRI-treated SP patients did not differ on demographic and clinical measures. Awake bruxism, 'JAW PLAY' and at least one PF were more prevalent in SP than in controls. Severity of SP predicted the presence of PF. SP, but not depression, was associated with higher risk of oral PF and awake bruxism. Chronic SSRI treatment of SP did not affect sleep and awake bruxism. Dental and anxiety screening may improve the prognosis psychiatric and dental patients. Effective treatment of SP may mitigate bruxism. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: O líquen plano é uma doença crônica sistêmica comum que envolve a mucosa oral, na maioria das vezes na ausência de lesões em pele. Embora relativamente comum, o líquen plano oral é alvo de muita controvérsia, especialmente em relação à sua patogênese e possibilidade de uma eventual transformação maligna. Assim, o objetivo deste trabalho é relatar dois casos de líquen plano em pacientes do sexo masculino e discutir os principais aspectos dessa lesão em relação a etiopatogênese e tratamento. Descrição do caso: Exames físicos e histopatológicos foram realizados para confirmar o diagnóstico de líquen plano oral. Foi prescrito elixir de dexametasona no primeiro caso e no segundo caso, foi prescrito o uso tópico de propionato de clobetasol 0,05%. Após quinze dias, os pacientes retornaram com regressão da lesão. Conclusão: Embora a ocorrência de líquen plano oral é comum, o diagnóstico preciso é necessário para que o correto tratamento possa ser realizado

    2011-03-15

    A focus often exists in dental practice on the maintenance and management of the dentition and the periodontium, however, conditions of the oral mucosa and orofacial pain can cause significant problems for older patients. Oral mucosal conditions are more prevalent in older patients and many orofacial pain disorders, such as burning mouth syndrome and trigeminal neuralgia, are more common in patients over the age of 50 years. Although these conditions may not be routinely managed in general practice, identification of these patients in primary care and appropriate referral will lead to more prompt and effective treatment. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Dental practitioners need to be able to identify what is considered to be within the normal physiological limits of the ageing oral tissue and hence what is abnormal and requires further investigation to facilitate appropriate referral.

    Gastrophysics is the science that pertains to the physical and physico-chemical description of the empirical world of gastronomy, with focus on sensory perception in the oral cavity and how it is related to the materials properties of food and cooking processes. Flavor (taste and smell), mouthfeel, chemesthesis, and astringency are all related to the chemical properties and the texture of the food and how the food is transformed in the oral cavity. The present topical review will primarily focus attention on the somatosensory perception of food (mouthfeel or texture) and how it interacts with basic tastes (sour, bitter, sweet, salty, and umami) and chemesthetic action. Issues regarding diet, nutrition, and health will be put into an evolutionary perspective, and some mention will be made of umami and its importance for (oral) health.

    A report is made of the successful use of oral clonidine for proctalgia fugax by the author on himself. The author, a 30 year old otherwise healthy man, has been having attacks of proctalgia fugax for several years. He had hitherto left the condition untreated. Last year, in a severe attack, he tried oral clonidine 150 micrograms twice a day and found it to be dramatically effective. He was completely relieved in three days and tapered off the drug thereafter. A further attack of proctalgia fugax after a month was again treated successfully with oral clonidine. The presumed aetiology of proctalgia fugax is discussed and the possible mechanism of action of clonidine in this condition is outlined. Further trials of clonidine appear to be worthwhile for this condition which has been described as incurable.

    Full Text Available Neste texto pretende-se discorrer sobre valores morais na escola e suas implicações para a formação de professores. Para tanto discutir-se-á, em primeiro lugar, e brevemente, o que são valores morais, ou éticos, e como a escola pode situar-se em relação a eles. Em seguida, serão relatadas algumas observações a respeito de valores de professores e práticas daí decorrentes. São comentados resultados de pesquisa que ilustram a transmissão de valores de forma doutrinal e a educação moral e cívica tal como realizada na ditadura militar, e, por outro lado, a posição relativista e/ou de laissez-faire que certas escolas podem adotar, metodologicamente, sobre a educação em valores. Finalmente, defender-se-á a idéia de que é necessária uma discussão sobre valores pelos diversos membros da escola e uma opção por uma metodologia para ensiná-los, seja os professores, em sua formação inicial e continuada, seja os alunos. A teoria de desenvolvimento moral de Jean Piaget será apresentada como uma referência possível para a educação em valores. Exemplos de situações escolares de conflito de valores entre direção, pais e alunos são discutidas para ilustrar como uma escola pode adotar um procedimento democrático de educação em valores, que se apresenta como um terceiro caminho possível de educação moral nas escolas, além das posições doutrinárias ou relativistas.

Exfoliative cytology can be used to detect changes to the health of the oral mucosa. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate morphometrical and morphological changes using exfoliative cytology and to analyse and quantify the proliferative activity using silver nucleolar organiser regions (AgNOR in epithelial cells of the tongue in FA patients,after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT. Methods: Oral smears were collected from the tongues of 20 FA children and adolescents after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (FA and 20 healthy children (C using exfoliative cytology. The smears were stained using the Papanicolaou technique and silver impregnation. The cells were morphologically analysed and the nuclear area (NA, the cytoplasmic area (CA, and the nucleusto-cytoplasm area ratio (NA/CA were calculated. Results: Mean values for the FA and C groups were: NA (71.85 and 55.21μm.; p< 0.01; CA (2127.48 and 1441.61μm.; p< 0.01; NA/CA (0.03 and 0.04; p< 0.01, respectively. A significant increase in the NA and CA for the FA group (p< 0.01 was seen, and an alteration in the NA/CA ratio. No morphological differences were found between the groups. Class I smears were predominant in both groups. No differences were found between the groups for the mean values of AgNORs per nucleus. Conclusion: This study suggests that morphological changes occurred in the oral epithelium cells of children and adolescents with Fanconi anaemia when subjected to HSCT.

    Combined oral contraceptive (COC) use has been associated with venous thrombosis (VT) (i.e., deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism). The VT risk has been evaluated for many estrogen doses and progestagen types contained in COC but no comprehensive comparison involving commonly used COC is available. To provide a comprehensive overview of the risk of venous thrombosis in women using different combined oral contraceptives. Electronic databases (Pubmed, Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane, CINAHL, Academic Search Premier and ScienceDirect) were searched in 22 April 2013 for eligible studies, without language restrictions. We selected studies including healthy women taking COC with VT as outcome. The primary outcome of interest was a fatal or non-fatal first event of venous thrombosis with the main focus on deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. Publications with at least 10 events in total were eligible. The network meta-analysis was performed using an extension of frequentist random effects models for mixed multiple treatment comparisons. Unadjusted relative risks with 95% confidence intervals were reported.Two independent reviewers extracted data from selected studies. 3110 publications were retrieved through a search strategy; 25 publications reporting on 26 studies were included. Incidence of venous thrombosis in non-users from two included cohorts was 0.19 and 0.37 per 1 000 person years, in line with previously reported incidences of 0,16 per 1 000 person years. Use of combined oral contraceptives increased the risk of venous thrombosis compared with non-use (relative risk 3.5, 95% confidence interval 2.9 to 4.3). The relative risk of venous thrombosis for combined oral contraceptives with 30-35 μg ethinylestradiol and gestodene, desogestrel, cyproterone acetate, or drospirenone were similar and about 50-80% higher than for combined oral contraceptives with levonorgestrel. A dose related effect of ethinylestradiol was observed for gestodene

    Full Text Available Oral lesions are among the early signs of HIV infection and can predict its progression to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS. A better understanding of the oral manifestations of AIDS in both adults and children has implications for all health care professionals. The knowledge of such alterations would allow for early recognition of HIV-infected patients. The present paper reviews epidemiology, relevant aspects of HIV infection related to the mouth in both adults and children, as well as current trends in antiretroviral therapy and its connection with orofacial manifestations related to AIDS.

  18. Cancer of the oral cavity.

    Montero, Pablo H; Patel, Snehal G

    2015-07-01

    Cancer of the oral cavity is one of the most common malignancies worldwide. Although early diagnosis is relatively easy, presentation with advanced disease is not uncommon. The standard of care is primary surgical resection with or without postoperative adjuvant therapy. Improvements in surgical techniques combined with the routine use of postoperative radiation or chemoradiation therapy have resulted in improved survival. Successful treatment is predicated on multidisciplinary treatment strategies to maximize oncologic control and minimize impact of therapy on form and function. Prevention of oral cancer requires better education about lifestyle-related risk factors, and improved awareness and tools for early diagnosis. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  3. A aposta na filosofia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Márcio Suzuki

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Para Hume, filosofar é uma atividade semelhante às demais ocupações humanas. A decisão que leva à atividade filosófica é menos resultado de uma argumentação teórica do que fruto de um cálculo prático, que é entendido como uma caça ou um jogo. O objetivo deste trabalho será o de mostrar que no jogo filosófico perde quem joga sério demais. A aposta na filosofia tem que passar pelo bom humor e pela diversão: uma resposta a Pascal?For Hume, philosophy is in itself neither more nor less important than other human activities. On the contrary, it can be explained from its resemblance with game and hunting. If one chooses to dedicate himself to philosophy, his decision is not the consequence of logical reasoning, but depends on practical evaluation, which has something to do with gambling. The following text tries to show that in philosophy, like in other games, the loser will be the one who plays too earnestly. The philosophical game requires good humour and some relaxation: Is this a good answer to Pascal's pari?

  4. La Grande Guerra dalla parte delle donne nella poesia inglese

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anna Maria Cataldi Palombi

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available For many decades following the end of the Great War, in England great credence was given to the decisive role played by women in encouraging their “young men” to enlist in search of glory through the sacrifice of their young lives. Thus, in maintaining silence, women were thought to have been insensitive to the suffering of men. In their verses, however, the young soldier-poets spoke out eloquently against the horrors of war. Notwithstanding, an analysis of women’s poetry, for the most part published after the end of the war – leads us to hold that the study of their works ‘adds a new dimension to the established canon of war literature and a new way to understand the truth about war'. Therefore, while not discounting the fact that the propaganda, the censorship and the initial championing of the cause by women did, indeed, contribute to the enthusiasm of young men to take part in the conflict, it can be affirmed that the poetry written by women can be considered complementary to that written by men. In women’s poetry, the themes of remorse for the loss of young lives, physical and moral destruction and the deception to which young men had fallen victim were all present and are extensively examined in the essay.

My article situates Inkala in the tradition of poetry and literature in the Finnish language and traces the development of themes, topics and formal strategies I consider central in his work (among others, the “great tradition” of Western civilization and culture, relation between spirituality, art and science, intertextuality, self-reflexive qualities, social commitment. The analysis of this development culminates in the discussion of Inkala’s five unpublished poems, which are presented also in the Italian translation. The article and the poems are accompanied by my interview with the author.

    2016-09-01

    Data sourcesCochrane Oral Health Group Trials Register, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), Medline, Embase, CANCERLIT, CINAHL, the US National Institutes of Health Trials Registry and the WHO Clinical Trials Registry Platform.Study selectionRandomised controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the effects of oral cryotherapy in patients with cancer receiving treatment compared to usual care, no treatment or other interventions to prevent mucositis. The primary outcome was incidence of mucositis and its severity.Data extraction and synthesisTwo reviewers carried out study assessment and data extraction independently. Treatment effect for continuous data was calculated using mean values and standard deviations and expressed as mean difference (MD) and 95% confidence interval. Risk ratio (RR) was calculated for dichotomous data. Meta-analysis was performed.ResultsFourteen studies with 1280 participants were included. Subgroup analysis was undertaken according to the main cancer treatment type. Cryotherapy reduced the risk of developing mucositis by 39% (RR = 0.61; 95%CI, 0.52 to 0.72) on patients treated with fluorouracil (5FU). For melphalan-based treatment the risk of developing mucositis was reduced by 41% (RR =0.59; 95%CI, 0.35 to 1.01). Oral cryotherapy was shown to be safe, with very low rates of minor adverse effects, such as headaches, chills, numbness/taste disturbance and tooth pain. This appears to contribute to the high rates of compliance seen in the included studies.ConclusionsThere is confidence that oral cryotherapy leads to a large reduction in oral mucositis in adults treated with 5FU. Although there is less certainty on the size of the reduction on patients treated with melphalan, it is certain there is reduction of severe mucositis.

  13. Nutrition and Oral Health: Experiences in Iran

    Full Text Available Background: Oral health is a crucial factor for overall well-being and there is a mutual relationship between nutrition and oral health. The aim of this study was to review the publications which have examined the association between nutrition or diet and oral health status or oral disease in Iran. Methods: The electronic databases of PubMed, Scopus, Google scholar, scientific information database (SID, and Magiran were searched using key words of diet, nutrition, oral health, oral disease, and Iran to reach the related articles published up to 2016. The English and Persian articles with cross-sectional, clinical trial, prospective, and case-control designs were selected. The Persian studies were then translated into English. The animal studies were not investigated. Results: The findings showed that nutrition and diet were associated with oral health. However, the majority of studies focused on evaluation of the relation between nutrition and dental caries. Further, a few studies were conducted on the association between nutrition and other oral problems such as periodontal disease or oral cancer. Moreover, the limited nutritional or dietary factors were investigated in the literature. Conclusions: Nutrition and diet are related to oral health and prevention of oral disease. Further studies are therefore recommended to evaluate the association between nutrition and oral health with considering various dietary or nutritional factors and different types of oral problems in Iran.

    Oral lichen planus (OLP) may show depositions of immunoglobulins and complement components in oral mucosal basement membrane zone (BMZ) in direct immunofluorescence, although these finding are not frequently seen. We collected and examined ten cases of severe OLP showing granular C3 deposition in BMZ. In addition to clinical, histopathological and direct immunofluorescence assessments, we performed various immune-serological tests, including indirect immunofluorescence of normal human skin and 1M NaCl-split skin, immunoblotting of normal human epidermal and dermal extracts, recombinant proteins of BP180 NC16a and C-terminal domains, concentrated culture supernatant of HaCaT cells and purified human laminin-332, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays for BP230 and BP180. Direct immunofluorescence showed C3 deposition in BMZ exclusively of granular pattern in 7 cases and of both granular and linear patterns in 3 cases. The 10 cases showed no positive reactivity for either IgG or IgA antibodies in any immuno-serological tests. Detailed analyses of clinical, histopathological and immunological findings revealed striking female prevalence, although other parameters were in general characteristic of OLP. Granular C3 deposition in oral BMZ may be one of the characteristic features of severe OLP, although mechanisms for C3 deposition and its pathogenic role in OLP are currently unknown.

    Various distresses appear in the terminal stage of cancer. Oral problems including dry mouth, stomatitis and candidiasis are one of the important problems which should be resolved. The purpose of this study was to investigate oral problems in this stage and improvement of dry mouth by oral care. The study subjects were consecutive terminally ill cancer patients admitted over the past 2 years. Patients were divided based on the status of oral food intake into good oral food intake group (≥30%) and poor oral food intake group. The following 3 items were retrospectively investigated: 1) The incidences of these oral problems, 2) Severity of dry mouth and complication with other oral problems, 3) Improvement of dry mouth using standard oral care by nursing staff and specialist oral care including dentists as needed. There were 115 and 158 patients in good and poor oral intake groups, respectively. 1) The incidences of dry mouth, stomatitis, and candidiasis were significantly higher in poor oral intake group ( p oral intake groups, respectively ( p oral intake group ( p = 0.0002). 3) The rate of dry mouth improvement by oral care was 100% in Grade-1, 86% in Grade-2 and 81% in Grade-3. Oral problems occur in many of terminally ill cancer patients. Accurate diagnosis of oral problems and corresponding appropriate interventions are important for improving quality of end-of-life care.

    2007-07-01

    As early as 900 years ago, the Bedouins of the Negev desert were reported to kill a rabid dog, roast its liver and feed it to a dog-bitten person for three to five days according to the size and number of bites [1] . In sixteenth century China, physicians routinely prescribed pills made from the fleas collected from sick cows, which purportedly prevented smallpox. One may dismiss the wisdom of the Bedouins or Chinese but the Nobel laureate, Charles Richet, demonstrated in 1900 that feeding raw meat can cure tuberculous dogs - an approach he termed zomotherapy. Despite historical clues indicating the feasibility of oral vaccination, this particular field is notoriously infamous for the abundance of dead-end leads. Today, most commercial vaccines are delivered by injection, which has the principal limitation that recipients do not like needles. In the last few years, there has been a sharp increase in interest in needle-free vaccine delivery; new data emerges almost daily in the literature. So far, there are very few licensed oral vaccines, but many more vaccine candidates are in development. Vaccines delivered orally have the potential to take immunization to a fundamentally new level. In this review, the authors summarize the recent progress in the area of oral vaccines.

    1971-05-01

    A sample of 139 predominantly black, young, low-income patients who had accepted oral contraception at a publicly supported family planning clinic has been analyzed for correlates of oral contraception continuation. Interviews were conducted 10-12 months after the clinic visit; at this time 38% of the patients continued taking oral contraceptives. It was found that patients with the highest continuation rates were 18-24 years old, in the 2-3 parity group, living with their husbands, had low-parity mothers, and were able to fill prescriptions in less time with more convenient methods of transportation. Discontinuers tended to have high-parity mothers, live with parents or head their own households, and to be in the 13-17 or 25-45 year old age groups. Fear of long-term use of oral contraceptives and perceived side effects appeared to be implicated in discontinuation. The rate of discontinuation may be associated with irregular coital experience and less consistent exposure to pregnancy.

  13. Poetry as an oral outlet

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Abraham Arden Brill

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available The text is inspired by some of Freud’s observations, regarding, among other things, the pleasure the child takes from playing with words as preliminary degree of wit. As zealous follower, Brill extends and intensifies the importance of Freud’s thought trying to establish a link, or at least a point of contact between the poetry in a generic sense and the various forms of oral gratification. This gives rise to unusual associations that are for the contemporary reader slightly comical: if poetry can be seen as an expression of the mysteries of oral Erotica, the relationship between poet and gourmet can only be the closest. To define and limit the scopes of fulfillment that is realized in oral poetry, Brill passes rapidly through the various forms this satisfaction takes in neurotics, in psychotics, in the child, in the primitive. The conclusions, unfortunately, are very general: many poets do not go beyond the oral stage and give clear signs of a fixation of libidinal development at this level.

    Lactobacilli have been associated with dental caries for over a century. Here, we review the pertinent literature along with findings from our own study to formulate a working hypothesis about the natural history and role of lactobacilli. Unlike most indigenous microbes that stably colonize a host, lactobacilli appear to be planktonic, opportunistic settlers that can gather and multiply only in certain restrictive niches of the host, at least within the oral cavity. We postulate that the following essential requirements are necessary for sustained colonization of lactobacilli in humans: 1) a stagnant, retentive niche that is mostly anaerobic; 2) a low pH milieu; and 3) ready access to carbohydrates. Three sites on the human body meet these specifications: caries lesions, the stomach, and the vagina. Only a handful of Lactobacillus species is found in caries lesions, but they are largely absent in caries-free children. Lactobacilli present in caries lesions represent both a major contributor to caries progression and a major reservoir to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. We extend the assertion from other investigators that lactobacilli found in the GI tract originate in the oral cavity by proposing that lactobacilli in the oral cavity arise from caries lesions. This, in turn, leads us to reflect on the health implications of the lactobacilli in the mouth and downstream GI and to ponder whether these or any of the Lactobacillus species are truly indigenous to the human GI tract or the oral cavity.

    Nekatere naše vrline krasijo zlate lastnosti, druge pa kvarijo sivi odtenki. Če bi ljudje razumeli in spoznali svojo osebnost, ter osebnostne tipe drugih ljudi, bi se problemi pri komunikaciji občutno zmanjšali. Takrat bi namreč lažje uvideli, zakaj je nekdo reagiral na način, kot je ali zakaj je nekdo dejal to, kar je. Smisel tega je, da spoznamo svoje dobre lastnosti, ki jih lahko še bolj razvijemo, slabe pa poskušamo nadzorovati in tako zmanjšati njihov vpliv. Iskanje uspešnih in učink...

    V diplomskem delu smo v uvodu predstavili problem spolnega nadlegovanja na delovnem mestu in predstavili podjetje TEKSTIL d.d. V nadaljevanju smo z anketo raziskali, ali problem spolnega nadlegovanja na delovnem mestu v obravnavanem podjetju obstaja in če, kako se nanj odziva okolje. V teoretičnem delu smo nadaljevali in predstavili definicijo spolnega nadlegovanja, ki je kakršna koli oblika nezaželenega verbalnega in neverbalnega ali fizičnega ravnanja spolne narave z učinkom ali nameno...
