MicroRNA-146a and microRNA-155 as novel crevicular fluid biomarkers for periodontitis in non-diabetic and type 2 diabetic patients
(Wiley, Hoboken, 2018)
AimRecent studies point at the crucial role of epigenetic mechanisms in the development of multifactorial diseases such as periodontitis and diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2. In addition, circulatory microRNAs (miRs) have ...
Relationship between method of anastomosis and anastomotic failure after right hemicolectomy and ileo-caecal resection: an international snapshot audit
(Wiley, Hoboken, 2017)
Aim The anastomosis technique used following right-sided colonic resection is widely variable and may affect patient outcome. This study aimed to assess the association between leak and anastomosis technique (stapled vs ...
Optical properties of composite restorations influenced by dissimilar dentin restoratives
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, Oxford, 2018)
Objectives. To evaluate optical properties (color and translucency) of 'sandwich' restorations of resin-based composites and esthetically unfavorable dentin restoratives. Methods. Cylindrical 'dentin' specimens (8 mm in ...
Association of C35T polymorphism in dihydrofolate reductase gene with toxicity of methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis patients
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, Abingdon, 2019)
Background: Methotrexate (MTX), a folate analogue, is the most commonly used disease-modifying drug in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, high interindividual differences in drug response are present among ...
