Peri-Implant Disease--A Significant Complication of Dental Implant Supported Restorative Treatment.

J Indiana Dent Assoc 2016 ;95(1):31-8

Over past several decades, oral rehabilitation of fully or partially edentulous patients with dental implants has become a routine procedure in daily practice. Dental implant supported and retained prosthesis can provide a wide variety of treatment options to patients due to their high predictability and survival rate. While many patients treated with dental implants have had high long term success, they are not completely free of complications. Read More

Racial disparities in cervical cancer mortality in an African American and European American cohort in South Carolina.

J S C Med Assoc 2009 Dec;105(7):237-44

USC, 915 Green Street, Room 244, Columbia, SC 29208, USA.

South Carolina (SC) has some of the largest health disparities in the nation, in particular cancer mortality rates that disfavor African Americans (AA) in comparison to European Americans (EA) with 37% higher incidence and 61% higher mortality rates for AA women compared to EA women. Consequently, the purpose of this investigation was to examine and compare the impact of race on survival among cervical cancer patients in SC. Data from the SC Central Cancer Registry on all AA and EA cervical cancer patients in SC were analyzed for this investigation. Read More

Retroviruses and other latent viruses: the deadliest of pathogens are not necessarily the best candidates for bioterrorism.

J S C Med Assoc 2009 Jun;105(3):104-6

MUSC Division of Infectious Diseases, 135 Rutledge Ave, Charleston, South Carolina 29425, USA.

HIV-1 (and other viral causes of latent, chronic infections) is not a likely candidate for bioterrorism. Scenarios resulting in the introduction of retroviral infections into a large population generally seem impractical and unpredictable as bioterrorist plots, especially relative to the frightening simplicity of deadly anthrax spores or smallpox virions. As evidenced in the above discussion, contaminating the blood supply would require a highly sophisticated plan resulting in effects of rather limited ultimate scope, and would have to evade an extremely effective screening process already in full force.

Pamela A Clark

J S C Med Assoc 2009 Apr;105(2):51-4

McLeod Health, 901 E. Cheves St., Suite 420, Florence, SC 29506, USA.

The rise in type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents is occurring at a rapid rate. Screening for at risk individuals beginning at or around age 10 and treatment in the phase of insulin resistance is recommended as a prevention measure. For those with overt type 2 diabetes, attention to overall glucose control, prevention of micro- and macro-vascular complications, and assessment of lipids and blood pressure are necessary, along with close monitoring of medication side effects, especially of medications not traditionally used in pediatrics.

Can Tai chi enhance cognitive vitality? A preliminary study of cognitive executive control in older adults after A Tai chi intervention.

J S C Med Assoc 2008 Dec;104(8):255-7

We explored tasks of cognitive and physical performance in 20 older adult subjects after a 10 week Tai chi program in older adults using a pre-to-post test design. Improvement post intervention was seen in two cognitive measures of executive function and several physical performance measures. Preliminary findings in this non-controlled study suggest the possibility of beneficial effects of Tai chi on cognitive executive function in older adults and support the need to pursue this hypothesis in a randomized controlled trial.

Prostate cancer disparities in South Carolina: early detection, special programs, and descriptive epidemiology.

J S C Med Assoc 2006 Aug;102(7):241-9

Center for Community-Based Research, Dana- Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA, 02215, USA.

Available evidence suggests that there may be qualitative differences in the natural history of PrCA by race. If this is true then additional etiologic research is needed to identify places in the causal chain where we can intervene to lower PrCA rates in AA men. South Carolina may prove to be a useful context in which to study prostate cancer etiology, because of the presence of unique environmental exposures. Read More

Cancer Prevention and Control Program, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Arnold School of Public Health, The University of South Carolina, 2221 Devine Street, Columbia, SC, 29208, USA.

A discrepancy exists between mortality and incidence rates between African-American and European-American women in South Carolina. The relationship between tumor grade and the estrogen/ progesterone receptor status is different in African-American and European-American women. African-American women with breast cancer should be encouraged to participate in clinical trials, with the goal of identifying biological factors that might facilitate the detection of tumors at an earlier stage and the development of more effective therapies.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina, 2221 Devine Street, Columbia, SC, 29208, USA.

Because of its high fatality rate and our inability to detect esophageal disease early in its development, esophageal cancer represents a significant medical and public health challenge. The mortality statistics underline the importance of focusing on prevention of these conditions as a matter of state and national public health priority. Unfortunately, the measures needed for primary prevention of these conditions do not seem as clear-cut for populations at highest risk of this disease (i. Read More

A case of pellagra and a South Carolina history of the disorder.

J S C Med Assoc 2003 Aug;99(8):220-3

USC Department of Medicine, Two Medical Park, Suite 502, Columbia, SC 29203, USA.

This case raises many questions about pellagra in the 21st century. Why are so few cases diagnosed in industrialized societies? Are physicians and other health care providers overlooking many cases? Should we treat any "sick" person and those with unexplained skin, mental status changes or gastrointestinal complaints with safe, inexpensive doses of niacin? Should an inexpensive, reliable laboratory test for pellagra be developed? Clearly the quote, "if you keep pellagra in mind, you will recognize it when you see it" is valid. But perhaps that is not sufficient and pellagra is frequently invisible. Read More

Prediction of non-occurrence of syncope during a tilt-table test by early heart rate variations.

J S C Med Assoc 2001 May;97(5):207-10

Division of Cardiology, UCI Medical Center, Bldg. 53 Rm. 100, Rt 81, 101 The City Drive, South Orange, CA 92868-4080, USA.

A recent study showed that, in a select patient population with no drug use and no cardiac or other illness, an increase in heart rate equal to or less than 18 beats per minute from baseline in the first 6 minutes of a tilt-table test at 60 degrees identifies patients who will not develop syncope during prolonged tilting, with specificity and positive predictive value nearing 100 percent. We retrospectively reviewed 110 consecutive tilt-table tests at an angle of 70 degrees or more, performed at our institutions between 1994 and 1999 in patients with and without cardiac disease or drug use. Excluded were 320 additional patients due to either incomplete heart rate documentation or development of syncope in the first ten minutes of tilting. Read More

Division of Behavioral Medicine and Bioethics, Department of Oral Biology, Indiana University School of Dentistry, USA.

The foundation for the development of ethical sensitivity and the capacity for reflective reasoning about ethical dilemmas must be established early during professional training. At Indiana University School of Dentistry, two assessment tools, the Dental Ethical Sensitivity Test (DEST) and the Defining Issues Test (DIT) are being employed to help measure student achievement and enhance their skills in this area. Evidence suggests that both small-group discussion and case-based problem solving involving ethical issues improve scores on these measures. Read More

The search for a metal-free, aesthetic restoration with optimal strength, longevity, and comfort easily dates back to the 19th century. However, the popularity of adhesively retained restorations has reached an all-time high due to improvements in wear, post-op sensitivity, bond material and strength, and aesthetic quality. Targis/Vectris, a ceromer restorative material introduced in 1997 by Ivoclar-Williams, is a ceramic optimized polymer that produces a strong fiber-reinforced tooth-colored restoration. Read More

With respect to diagnosis, the clinician should ask, (1) Is the problem pneumonia or something else? (2) Is the pneumonia often treated empirically with a macrolide (erythromycin, clarithromycin, or azithromycin), a "respiratory quinolone" (levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, gatifloxacin, or gemifloxacin) or doxycycline.

This article presents a protocol system, comprised of a review process and a series of checklists, that was developed for testing cadaveric tissue in an impact biomechanics research facility. The use of cadaveric tissue may expose personnel to bloodborne pathogens including HIV and hepatitis B, which have been shown to remain virulent in a cadaver for several weeks after death. To minimize exposure risks, the protocol system presented emphasizes initial blood screening to keep infectious tissue from entering the laboratory, and adopts universal precautions to prevent exposure by treating all tissue as though it were infected.

During July 1995 the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) began to certify nine new classes of particulate respirators. To determine the level of performance of these respirators, NIOSH researchers conducted a study to (1) measure the simulated workplace performance of 21 N95 respirator models, (2) determine whether fit-testing affected the performance, and (3) investigate the effect of varying fit-test pass/fail criteria on respirator performance. The performance of each respirator model was measured by conducting 100 total penetration tests. Read More

Am Ind Hyg Assoc J 1999 Jul-Aug;60(4):495-501

Tennessee Wesleyan College, Athens 37371, USA.

Chemical protective clothing (PC) use while working results in elevated rectal temperatures (Tre) that limit work time. Particle barrier, vapor permeable (PBVP) PCs allow workers to cool themselves by evaporating some sweat. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects on worker productivity of two types of PBVP suits, a Kleenguard (PPPC) (Kimberly Clark), and a Tyvek (PEPC) (DuPont) suit. Read More

Effect of respirator inspiratory resistance level on constant load treadmill work performance.

Am Ind Hyg Assoc J 1999 Jul-Aug;60(4):474-9

University of Maryland, College Park 20742-5711, USA.

Respirator inspiratory resistance can affect performance times, especially when the experiment is optimized to elicit respiratory stress. Twelve subjects performed on a treadmill at constant speeds and grades chosen to result in performance times of 5-15 min. Six levels of inspiratory resistance were used, ranging from 0. Read More
