Patients with profound hearing loss due to inner ear malformations may benefit from cochlear implantation; however, the surgery may present a substantial problem for the cochlear implant surgeon due to anatomical variations. The authors describe a new surgical and technical advancement for
The use of models simulating fissures allows studying demineralization at sites that are most prone to caries in vivo. In practice, most in situ models use flat surfaces. Our objectives were: (1) to compare the demineralizing potential of sucrose solution with that of bananas and (2) to study the
To determine the prevalence of dental caries and the level of sugar consumption among 6-12-y-old schoolchildren in La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines.
A Cross-sectional study as a baseline survey for a later intervention program. A questionnaire was distributed to obtain information
As part of a major study to identify cariogenic elements of foods, the cariogenic potential of 22 foods relative to sucrose (confectioners' sugar) was determined over six intubation rat caries experiments. Cariogenic potential indices were calculated for each food from sulcal and buccal-lingual

Starch isolated from macho banana was oxidized by using 2.5% and 3.5% (w/w) of sodium hypochlorite. Native and oxidized starches with glycerol were processed using a conical twin screw extruder to obtain thermoplastic laminates or sheets, which were partially characterized. Oxidized banana starches
Disease spread of Pseudocercospora fijiensis, causal agent of the black Sigatoka disease of banana, depends on ascospores produced through the sexual reproductive cycle. We used phylogenetic analysis to identify P. fijiensis homologs (PKS8-4 and Hybrid8-3) to the PKS4 polyketide synthases (PKS) from
The combination of pyridyl ligands and square-planar Pd(ii) or Pt(ii) cations has proven to be a very reliable recipe for the realization of supramolecular self-assemblies. This tutorial review deals with the design, synthesis and host-guest chemistry of discrete coordination cages built according
Food movements during complete feeding sequences on soft and hard foods (8 g of chicken spread, banana, and hard cookie) were investigated in 10 normal subjects; 6 of these subjects also ate 8 g peanuts. Foods were coated with barium sulfate. Lateral projection videofluorographic tapes were
The purpose of this study was to evaluate and to compare the cariogenic potential of different commonly consumed favored milk on caries development in rat's molar teeth.
Sixty Sprague-Dawley rats infected with an active growing culture of Streptococcus mutans were offered chocolate favored milk,
Previous neuroimaging studies of the cortical representation of gustatory and olfactory stimuli have often delivered tastants to the mouth in very small quantities or stimulated olfaction orthonasally. In studies of retro-nasal olfaction, swallowing was generally delayed to reduce head motion
Probiotics are widely used in the food industry and may affect the oral microbiota. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of petit-suisse plus probiotic on the microbiota of children's saliva. Strawberry flavor petit-suisse cheese plus green banana flour without Lactobacillus casei (control) and
A live, attenuated Yersinia pestis vaccine, designated EV76 (Paris) F, was pathogenic in Cercopithecus aethiops when administered parenterally. Although an oral dose of 10(9) colone-forming units of the vaccine was nonfatal to vervets, a transient but severe gastrointestinal disturbance resulted in
Microbiological in vitro and animal experiments were performed to determine the cariogenic potential of different snacks. The determination of the oral salivary sugar clearance time by the aid of a cariogenic S. mutans strain as standard for the cariogenic potential resulted in a relatively high
We examined the temporospatial characteristics of stage I oral food transport, in which a piece of solid food is moved from the anterior oral cavity to the postcanine region for chewing. Anteroposterior transport is accomplished by carrying food posteriorly on the surface of the tongue, in
