The p75 neurotrophic factor receptor is a low affinity receptor for neurotrophic factors and plays an important role in nerve growth, development and function integrity. It is closely related to dental development, oral and maxillofacial tumor, nerve repair and tissue engineering. It shows good prospect for application. In this paper, the research progress of p75 neurotrophic factor receptor in Stomatology is reviewed.

INTRODUCTION: We examined the role of adolescent orthodontic patients' psychological well-being attributes (self-esteem, general body image, and positive and negative affects) and the clinical indicators of dental esthetics (orthodontists' ratings on the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need-Aesthetic Component [IOTN-AC]), and their changes from pretreatment to posttreatment as predictors of the psychosocial impact of dental esthetics. METHODS: In this prospective longitudinal study, 1090 adolescent orthodontic patients seeking treatment at the Stomatological Hospital of Chongqing Medical University in China (mean age, 14...

Ameloblastic fibro-odontosarcoma (AFOS) is an extremely rare subtype of odontogenic sarcoma, with no more than 19 cases reported in the English literature to date. AFOS is a biphasic neoplasm, with deposits of dentin and enamel matrix. We herein present a case of AFOS with active epithelial proliferation in a 31-year-old female patient. The patient was referred to the West China Hospital of Stomatology (Chengdu, China) due to a 6-month history of a swelling in the left mandible. Following clinical and radiological examination, the initial preoperative diagnosis was ameloblastoma, with local invasion and the possibility of malignant transformation...
