The Importance of Tablet Formulation on Allergen Release Kinetics and Efficiency: Comparison of Freeze-dried and Compressed Grass Pollen Sublingual Allergy Immunotherapy Tablet Formulations.

Clin Ther 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

ALK Abelló A/S, Hørsholm, Denmark. Electronic address:

Purpose: Efficient delivery of allergens to the sublingual mucosa is a prerequisite for successful sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) for allergy, and in order to become available to immune-competent cells embedded in the sublingual mucosa, allergens need to be delivered in a soluble form. Delivery of solubilized allergens poses a particular challenge for tablet-based allergy immunotherapy, in which allergens are administered under the tongue in the form of dry tablets and need to be dissolved rapidly in a small volume of saliva, with little or no agitation. The purposes of this article were to compare the properties of 2 different pharmaceutical SLIT-tablet formulations, freeze-dried and compressed, and to examine how the tablet formulation affects the efficiency with which allergen is delivered from the dry state of the tablet into soluble form.

Hedgehog Signaling Regulates Taste Organs and Oral Sensation: Distinctive Roles in the Epithelium, Stroma, and Innervation.

Int J Mol Sci 2019 Mar 16;20(6). Epub 2019 Mar 16.

Department of Biologic and Materials Sciences, University of Michigan School of Dentistry, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA.

The Hedgehog (Hh) pathway has regulatory roles in maintaining and restoring lingual taste organs, the papillae and taste buds, and taste sensation. Taste buds and taste nerve responses are eliminated if Hh signaling is genetically suppressed or pharmacologically inhibited, but regeneration can occur if signaling is reactivated within the lingual epithelium. Whereas Hh pathway disruption alters taste sensation, tactile and cold responses remain intact, indicating that Hh signaling is modality-specific in regulation of tongue sensation. Read More

Frequency of Tongue Cleaning Impacts the Human Tongue Microbiome Composition and Enterosalivary Circulation of Nitrate.

Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2019 1;9:39. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, United States.

The oral microbiome has the potential to provide an important symbiotic function in human blood pressure physiology by contributing to the generation of nitric oxide (NO), an essential cardiovascular signaling molecule. NO is produced by the human body via conversion of arginine to NO by endogenous nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) but eNOS activity varies by subject. Oral microbial communities are proposed to supplement host NO production by reducing dietary nitrate to nitrite via bacterial nitrate reductases. Read More

Laryngeal and Pharyngeal Movements During Inner Singing: A Cross-Sectional Study.

J Voice 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology/Phoniatrics, Klinikum rechts der Isar, Technical University Munich, Munich, Germany.

Introduction: Laryngeal and pharyngeal activity during inner singing is discussed in the context of vocal hygiene. Inner singing is defined as imagined singing, reading music silently, and listening to vocal music. When vocal rest is prescribed, doctors, speech therapists, and voice pedagogues recommend avoiding listening to music or reading music silently, since it is suggested that inner singing unconsciously influences the glottis, and thus moves the vocal folds involuntarily.

J Oral Implantol 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

3 Long Island Jewish Medical Center Dental medicine Kings County Hospital Center. Currently Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

The tongue flap is a hardy flap that is routinely utilized by oral and maxillofacial surgeons to cover intraoral defects. It has not been described as a method for keratinized soft tissue coverage in conjunction with dental implant placement. In this article, we use the tongue flap in the closure of a chronic anterior maxillary dehiscence and to provide keratinized soft tissue coverage for anterior dental implants. Read More

Palatability in pigs, the pleasure of consumption.

J Anim Sci 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

School of Psychology, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK.

Despite the importance of hedonic reactions in pig's intake, feed palatability has been typically inferred from preference or acceptance measures. However, these measures are influenced by factors beyond palatability, such as energy density and hunger. The aim of this study was to evaluate palatability responses in pigs to sweet and umami taste at different inclusions levels. Read More

Depiction of Oral Tumor-Induced Trigeminal Afferent Responses Using Single-Fiber Electrophysiology.

Sci Rep 2019 Mar 14;9(1):4574. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Endodontics, University of Texas Health at San Antonio, San Antonio, TX, USA.

Considerable gap in knowledge exists about the mechanisms by which oral tumors regulate peripheral sensory fibers to produce pain and altered sensations. To address this gap, we used a murine model of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) of the tongue to investigate changes in response properties of trigeminal afferent neurons. Using this model, we developed an ex vivo method for single neuron recordings of the lingual nerve from isolated tongue tissue. Read More

Cytosolic glucosylceramide regulates endolysosomal function in Niemann-Pick type C disease.

Neurobiol Dis 2019 Mar 12;127:242-252. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

School of Pharmacy, De Montfort University, The Gateway, Leicester LE1 9BH, UK. Electronic address:

Niemann-Pick type C disease (NPCD) is a neurodegenerative disease associated with increases in cellular cholesterol and glycolipids and most commonly caused by defective NPC1, a late endosomal protein. Using ratiometric probes we find that NPCD cells show increased endolysosomal pH. In addition U18666A, an inhibitor of NPC1, was found to increase endolysosomal pH, and the number, size and heterogeneity of endolysosomal vesicles. Read More

Electronic address:

Mounting evidence shows interaction between manipulative hand movements and movements of tongue, lips and mouth in a vocal and non-vocal context. The current article reviews this evidence and discusses its contribution to perspectives of development and evolution of speech. In particular, the article aims to present novel insight on how processes controlling the two primary grasp components of manipulative hand movements, the precision and power grip, might be systematically connected to motor processes involved in producing certain articulatory gestures.

Assistant professor, Department of Oral Pathology, in the Centre for Dental Education and Research, at the India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

The tongue is a muscular organ with a rich blood supply and acts as an immune defence mechanism. The occurrence of a tongue abscess without immune deficiency is rare. The purpose of this report is to present the case of an eight-year-old boy with a spherical, pinkish-yellow, fluctuant, nontender swelling measuring two cm in diameter on the right anterolateral border of the tongue, causing difficulty in swallowing and speaking.

Characteristic Localization of Neuronatin in Rat Testis, Hair Follicle, Tongue, and Pancreas.

J Histochem Cytochem 2019 Mar 14:22155419836433. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Division of Life Science, Meiji University, Kanagawa, Japan.

Neuronatin ( Nnat) is expressed in the pituitary, pancreas, and other tissues; however, the function of NNAT is still unclear. Recent studies have demonstrated that NNAT is localized in the sex-determining region Y-box 2-positive stem/progenitor cells in the developing rat pituitary primordium and is downregulated during differentiation into mature hormone-producing cells. Moreover, NNAT is widely localized in subcellular organelles, excluding the Golgi. Read More
