Latest Resources from Migration Information Source

Policy Beat
Republican Congressional Leaders Shelve Immigration Reform for 2014
The small window for enactment of a major U.S. immigration overhaul during 2014 seems to have closed. A trial balloon testing House Republicans’ willingness to proceed this year was quickly floated and dropped. Amid a focus on politics and timing, less noted was the reality that for the first time, House Republican leaders have affirmed support for a policy that would move the party closer to compromise over the most vexing question holding up immigration reform: what to do with the nation’s unauthorized immigrants.

 

Spotlight
Refugees and Asylees in the United States
In 2012, the United States granted humanitarian protection to more than 87,000 people, with grants of asylum up 19 percent and refugee admissions up 3 percent from a year earlier. This article provides a detailed look at the most recent refugee and asylum data in the United States, including country of origin, top states of settlement, and more.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by Dental Library under Dentistry
Tags:

Date: February 24, 2014 (Monday)
Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Theatre II, G/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

 

Presenter: Ms. Rao Ninajing, PhD Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)

Title: Study on the pathogenesis of Bisphosphonate-related Osteonecrosis of the jaws

Abstract: Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJ) is a rare but severe clinical complication related with Bisphosphonates (Bps) therapy, which is widely used for management a series of conditions accompanied by pathologically high bone resorption, such as Paget’s disease, osteoporosis and bone metastasis. And so far the underlying pathogenesis of BRONJ is still unknown. According to the relevant researches, multiple correlating factors might get involved in the development of BRONJ, including the efficacy and cumulative amount of Bps, dental surgical procedures as well as dental infection. The aim of the present  study is 1) to assess the significance of periapical infection in the development of Bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws and further explore its underlying pathophysiological mechanisms; 2) To assess the significance of Actinomyces onto the development of BRONJ. 80 12-weeks-old female C57BL/6N ovariectomized mice will be used in the study, 20 animals in each group. Clinical examination, Micro-CT scanning, immunohistochemistry will be used to observe morphological and histopathologic changes of jaw bones in this study.

 
Presenter: Mr. Huo Lei, PhD Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)

Title: Effect of bisphosphonate on periodontal condition in compromised host

Abstract: Bisphosphonate related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) has been reported as a serious complication on the patients received bisphosphonate treatment. The usage of this drug is mainly 1) low dose to enhance bone strength in postmenopausal women and aged people; 2) high dose to prevent and treat malignant skeletal complications in cancer patients. Although it is widely accepted that high-dose bisphosphonate is a high-risk factor in inducing osteonecrosis, some studies demonstrated  potential advantage of low-dose bisphosphonates in inhibiting alveolar bone resorption in progressive periodontitis. The objectives of this study are to investigate the effect of high and low doses bisphosphonates on periodontal condition using an ovariectomized rat model, and the risk of high/low doses bisphosphonates in inducing osteonecrosis in compromised host with progressive periodontitis. Clinical examination, Micro-CT, TUNEL staining, histology, immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence labeling will be used to investigate morphological and histopathologic changes of jawbones under various experimental conditions.
