Keratinized Tissue Width Around Dental Implants Grafted with three Different Guided Bone Regeneration Techniques: A comparative clinical study

Abstract : Peri-implant health is defined as the absence of signs of inflammation, bleeding, and suppuration around dental implants. The presence of adequate KT around dental implants is considered to be beneficial for maintaining peri-implant health and preventing peri-implant diseases, such as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. A comparative clinical study was conducted on a series of 18 patients with 30 alveolar ridge defects suffering from a horizontal bone defect that will result in the expo


Tubular carcinoid of the cecal appendix: A rare presentation.

Abstract : Carcinoid tumors mimicking acute appendicitis are rare (0.43% of patients), and the prognosis is excellent in the non-perforating appendix. The treatment depends on the site, size, and degree of mesoappendix and lymphovascular invasion. The level of Ki67 and mitotic activation rate are vital. Thus, it is important to follow the pathology report. We presented a case of tubular carcinoid mimicking acute appendicitis.

ROFLUMILAST, A novel PDE4 Inhibitor, Inhibits Serum Concentration of Tumour Necrosis Factor –Alpha and Maintains A healthy Joint Architecture in an induced Rheumatoid Arthritis in Rats

Abstract : PDE4 is a cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) specific enzyme, which hydrolyses cAMP to AMP and it is the predominant isoenzyme expressed in macrophages, lymphocytes and neutrophils. Elevation of intracellular cAMP, via inhibition of PDE4, triggers the protein kinase pathway which inhibits TNFα production and other cytokines, resulting in suppress the immune response. PDE4 is a promising therapeutic target for the treatment of diverse autoimmune conditions. The present study was carried out
