Latest Resources from Migration Information Source

Spotlight

Indian Immigrants in the United States
In 2011, India was the third largest country of origin for immigrants in the United States, after Mexico and China. The nearly 1.9 million Indian immigrants in the United States accounted for almost 5 percent of the country’s total foreign-born population of 40.4 million. This article examines the latest data on Indian immigrants in the United States, including population size, geographic distribution, admission categories, and demographic and socioeconomic characteristics.

 

Feature

Pigments of Our Imagination: The Racialization of the Hispanic-Latino Category
The terms “Hispanic” and “Latino” were originally created for administrative purposes by the US government, but have since come to define a population of 50.5 million people who trace their origins to 20 different countries. Rubén Rumbaut examines the origin and administrative use of the Hispanic-Latino category, and the effect it has had on the identities of people placed into it.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by Dental Library under Dentistry
Tags:

Date: August 30, 2013 (Friday)
Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Theatre II, G/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

 

Presenter: Mrs. Zhu Lifang, MPhil Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)

Title: Stimulation of EphB2/ephrin-B1 and Matrix Metalloproteinases by Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha in Human Dental Pulp Pericytes Cultures

Abstract: Dental pulp is the soft living tissue inside the tooth, but is often exposed to dental caries, trauma and restorative procedures. Current treatment modalities for pulp exposures with pulp capping materials can induce a mineralized reparative dentin bridge formation at the injured site. The purpose of this study is to identify how TNF-α regulate EphB2/ephrin-B1 and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in human dental pulp pericytes (hDDPs) cultures. This new knowledge will bring much needed insight into dentine/pulp regeneration and dentin repair.

 

Presenter: Miss Liu Yuan, MPhil Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)

Title: Regulation of cell proliferation in dental pulp stem cells through over-expression of Bcl-2 and c-Myc

Abstract: The vital of dental pulp is extremely important for maintaining healthy tooth, regeneration of dental pulp is an urgent research task. Dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) are identified as a potential candidate stem cell. Former studies showed that DPSCs were able to form dental-pulp-like tissue. The purpose of this study is to increase the proliferation ability of DPSCs by transfection of Bcl-2 and c-Myc genes.

Primary preventive dentistry / [edited by] Norman O. Harris, Franklin Garcia-Godoy, Christine Nielsen Nathe.

D 617.651 P9

 

Organized for consistency, coherence, and readability, this fully updated text covers all areas of prevention in dental care. PRIMARY PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY, 8/e first describes dental diseases and conditions, helping students clearly understand the processes that can be prevented through the use of preventive modalities or ideas. Next, it presents detailed strategies to prevent these diseases and conditions. Throughout, specific target populations are defined and described based upon scientifically valid preventive strategies aimed at their needs. This edition improves student understanding with more photos, illustrations, diagrams, and tables; highlights “fun facts” about the topic; adds a new chapter on the important influence culture plays in preventive dental care; and is supported by many new web-based review questions and case studies for each chapter. 

 

 

Controversial issues in implant dentistry / editor, Federico Hernández Alfaro ; associate editors, Hugo Campos Leitão, Cristina Porta Ferrer, Vanessa Ruiz Magaz.

D 617.674 C764 H5

 

Dental implantology has seen a dramatic shift in the last decade for a variety of reasons including the incorporation of 3D tools for diagnosis and treatment planning, new implant surfaces and designs, bioactive materials, tissue engineering techniques, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. The combined effect of these innovations is a new paradigm of implant dentistry that is already changing the way clinicians treat edentulous patients and improving treatment options. Despite these advances within implantology, questions remain about many new techniques and developing technologies. This book focuses on the dynamic parts of this new paradigm that are still evolving the controversial topics that are still subject to debate and that directly affect daily clinical practice. The author asks pressing questions and provides sound assessments.

 

 

General and oral pathology for the dental hygienist / Leslie DeLong, Nancy W. Burkhart.

D 617.661 D36

 

General and Oral Pathology for the Dental Hygienist, 2nd Edition, is a comprehensive study of the general concepts of pathophysiology as they relate to systemic and oral conditions. The only dental hygiene book on the market to address both oral and general pathology, General and Oral Pathology for the Dental Hygienist is the ideal solution for programs that cover oral and general pathology in one course, and provides an easily accessible review of general pathology for programs that cover oral pathology separately.

 

The Oral Pathology section is uniquely organized by distinct recognizable characteristics of lesions (for example, “white” lesions or “radiolucent” lesions), a uniquely practical and highly effective way of presenting this information since dental hygienists have to evaluate pathology based on what they see. This allows the student to easily identify what he or she might be looking at and to differentiate between lesions with similar appearances.
