GH is important in metabolic control, and mice with disruption of the gene encoding the GH receptor (GHR) and GH binding protein (GHR-/- mice) are dwarf with low serum IGF-1 and insulin levels, high GH levels, and increased longevity, despite their obesity and altered lipid and metabolic profiles. Secondary complications of high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity are reported to be associated with hypothalamic inflammation and gliosis. Because GH and IGF-1 can modulate inflammatory processes, our objective was to evaluate the effect of HFD on hypothalamic inflammation/gliosis in the absence of GH signaling and determine how this correlates with changes in systemic metabolism...

Herpis simplex 1 infection involving the orophaiynx in an adult is a rare entity, as, primary infection with type I herpes simplex is commonly seen in children and c auses a severe vesicular and ulcertive stomatitis and occasionally spreads to the oropharynx.

The adaptive evolution of the hemagglutinin (HA) segment of the human influenza H1N1 and H3N2 viruses is not well understood due to antigenic mutations under selection pressures. This paper identified significant antigenic selection sites and discussed the structural relevance of these mutations. We discovered four positively selected sites for H1N1 (position 206 for the 1A lineage - 2009 swine influenza, and positions 144, 190, and 192 for the 1B lineage), and eight positively selected sites for H3N2 with the loop regions near residues 157 and 225 as the latest antigenic mutations, which may be targeted for vaccine development...

This paper describes a modification of the combined bilateral sagittal split osteotomy and total subapical osteotomy procedure; a representative case treated with this approach is presented. In addition, diagnostic and treatment planning considerations for the comprehensive surgical-orthodontic therapy of individuals presenting with differential sagittal discrepancy between the mandibular corpus and symphysis are discussed, along with limitations of diagnostic criteria commonly used in cephalometric appraisal of the facial soft tissue outline...

This study was undertaken to quantitate the effects of needle trauma to the arterial wall during microvascular anastomoses. End-to-end anastomoses performed on rat femoral arteries were used as a model. Two weeks post-anastomoses, the specimens were processed and measured with a planimeter. The results were analysed statistically to evaluate the effects of different types of needles on the arterial wall. We found significant thickening of the arterial wall (P less than 0.01) but no difference in the amount of thickening between any of the needles evaluated...

This monitoring and evaluation study of third molar surgery complications took place over a 6-month period of time. The goal of the study was to determine complication rates following third molar extraction. A comparison was made between the staff's and residents' post-operative complication rates and patients receiving tetracycline powder in the extraction sockets vs. no antibiotics. Complication rates were compared in males vs. females, and in four different age groups. The study helped improve patient care by showing that alveolar osteitis rates decreased when all patients received topical tetracycline...
