A new tool for measuring the suckling stimulus during breastfeeding in humans: the orokinetogram and the Fourier series. (1/1930)

The Fourier series was used to analyse the oral movements recorded by the orokinetogram during breastfeeding in human babies. This is a new method that allows recording of oral movements without introducing any extrinsic element between the nipple and the mouth of the baby. The advantage of displaying suckling activity after fast Fourier transform (FFT) is that this algorithm allows storage, quantification and frequency analysis of the oral movements throughout a suckling bout, which enables the total oral activity to be measured. Two types of oral movements are found: slow high amplitude (SHA) and fast low amplitude (FLA). FLA movements may be derived from peristaltic movements of the tongue that result in tickling stimuli to the mechanoreceptors of the nipple and milk expression. The frequency bandwidth of oral movements is wider (0-8 Hz) than has been described previously (0-3 Hz) and this is due to the presence of the FLA oral movements. An indirect measurement of the energy of oral movements during suckling is obtained by the pattern of energy distribution used in each individual frequency band by oral movements. This pattern changes in relation to the periods of continuous and intermittent suckling activity. SHA and FLA oral movements are more intense during continuous suckling. Statistical analysis showed a correlation between the energy of SHA and FLA waves throughout the suckling bout, and also that the highest level of energy during suckling activity is displayed during the first 2 min. The novel tools described in this paper allow investigation of the role of suckling stimulus in reflex hormone release and other mother-infant interactions.  (+info)

Fungal prophylaxis by reduction of fungal colonization by oral administration of bovine anti-Candida antibodies in bone marrow transplant recipients. (2/1930)

Candida overgrowth and invasion constitute a serious threat with a high mortality in BMT recipients. Currently available topical antifungal prophylaxis is largely ineffective, and as resistance to existing, absorbable drugs for systemic use is rapidly developing, new forms of therapy are needed. We investigated the effect of oral treatment of BMT recipients with a bovine immunoglobulin product derived from animals immunized against several Candida species. The natural Candida colonization was first followed in 19 patients to establish the colonization pattern. Half of the patients were found to be colonized prior to transplantation and altogether 72% were colonized at some point during follow-up. Those with a high pre-transplant concentration of Candida in saliva (>100 CFU/ml) remained colonized throughout the BMT treatment period. The therapeutic effect was monitored in two other patient groups. The first group consisted of nine patients, where, due to a low number of primary colonized patients, response in colonized patients was suggestive of a therapeutic effect. In the second group, 10 patients with a high level of colonization (>100 CFU/ml) were given 10 g daily of the product in three divided doses. The results suggest a treatment-related reduction in Candida colonization in a majority (7/10) of patients and one patient became completely negative. As no adverse effects were noted, our findings encourage additional studies in immunocompromised, transplant patients.  (+info)

Humoral immunity to commensal oral bacteria in human infants: salivary secretory immunoglobulin A antibodies reactive with Streptococcus mitis biovar 1, Streptococcus oralis, Streptococcus mutans, and Enterococcus faecalis during the first two years of life. (3/1930)

Secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) antibodies reactive with the pioneer oral streptococci Streptococcus mitis biovar 1 and Streptococcus oralis, the late oral colonizer Streptococcus mutans, and the pioneer enteric bacterium Enterococcus faecalis in saliva samples from 10 human infants from birth to age 2 years were analyzed. Low levels of salivary SIgA1 and SIgA2 antibodies reactive with whole cells of all four species were detected within the first month after birth, even though S. mutans and E. faecalis were not recovered from the mouths of the infants during the study period. Although there was a fivefold increase in the concentration of SIgA between birth and age 2 years, there were no differences between the concentrations of SIgA1 and SIgA2 antibodies reactive with the four species over this time period. When the concentrations of SIgA1 and SIgA2 antibodies reactive with all four species were normalized to the concentrations of SIgA1 and SIgA2 in saliva, SIgA1 and SIgA2 antibodies reactive with these bacteria showed a significant decrease from birth to 2 years of age. Adsorption of each infant's saliva with cells of one species produced a dramatic reduction of antibodies recognizing the other three species. Sequential adsorption of saliva samples removed all SIgA antibody to the bacteria, indicating that the SIgA antibodies were directed to antigens shared by all four species. The induction by the host of a limited immune response to common antigens that are likely not involved in adherence may be among the mechanisms that commensal streptococci employ to persist in the oral cavity.  (+info)

Inhalation exposure of animals. (4/1930)

Relative advantages and disadvantages and important design criteria for various exposure methods are presented. Five types of exposures are discussed: whole-body chambers, head-only exposures, nose or mouth-only methods, lung-only exposures, and partial-lung exposures. Design considerations covered include: air cleaning and conditioning; construction materials; losses of exposure materials; evenness of exposure; sampling biases; animal observation and care; noise and vibration control, safe exhausts, chamber loading, reliability, pressure fluctuations; neck seals, masks, animal restraint methods; and animal comfort. Ethical considerations in use of animals in inhalation experiments are also discussed.  (+info)

Dopaminergic synapses mediate neuronal changes in an analogue of operant conditioning. (5/1930)

Feeding behavior in Aplysia can be modified by operant conditioning in which contingent reinforcement is conveyed by the esophageal nerve (E n.). A neuronal analogue of this conditioning in the isolated buccal ganglia was developed by using stimulation of E n. as an analogue of contingent reinforcement. Previous studies indicated that E n. may release dopamine. We used a dopamine antagonist (methylergonovine) to investigate whether dopamine mediated the enhancement of motor patterns in the analogue of operant conditioning. Methylergonovine blocked synaptic connections from the reinforcement pathway and the contingent-dependent enhancement of the reinforced pattern. These results suggest that dopamine mediates at least part of the neuronal modifications induced by contingent reinforcement.  (+info)

Coaggregation of Candida dubliniensis with Fusobacterium nucleatum. (6/1930)

The binding of microorganisms to each other and oral surfaces contributes to the progression of microbial infections in the oral cavity. Candida dubliniensis, a newly characterized species, has been identified in human immunodeficiency virus-seropositive patients and other immunocompromised individuals. C. dubliniensis phenotypically resembles Candida albicans in many respects yet can be identified and differentiated as a unique Candida species by phenotypic and genetic profiles. The purpose of this study was to determine oral coaggregation (CoAg) partners of C. dubliniensis and to compare these findings with CoAg of C. albicans under the same environmental conditions. Fifteen isolates of C. dubliniensis and 40 isolates of C. albicans were tested for their ability to coaggregate with strains of Fusobacterium nucleatum, Peptostreptococcus micros, Peptostreptococcus magnus, Peptostreptococcus anaerobius, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Prevotella intermedia. When C. dubliniensis and C. albicans strains were grown at 37 degrees C on Sabouraud dextrose agar, only C. dubliniensis strains coaggregated with F. nucleatum ATCC 49256 and no C. albicans strains showed CoAg. However, when the C. dubliniensis and C. albicans strains were grown at 25 or 45 degrees C, both C. dubliniensis and C. albicans strains demonstrated CoAg with F. nucleatum. Heating the C. albicans strains (grown at 37 degrees C) at 85 degrees C for 30 min or treating them with dithiothreitol allowed the C. albicans strains grown at 37 degrees C to coaggregate with F. nucleatum. CoAg at all growth temperatures was inhibited by mannose and alpha-methyl mannoside but not by EDTA or arginine. The CoAg reaction between F. nucleatum and the Candida species involved a heat-labile component on F. nucleatum and a mannan-containing heat-stable receptor on the Candida species. The CoAg reactions between F. nucleatum and the Candida species may be important in the colonization of the yeast in the oral cavity, and the CoAg of C. dubliniensis by F. nucleatum when grown at 37 degrees C provides a rapid, specific, and inexpensive means to differentiate C. dubliniensis from C. albicans isolates in the clinical laboratory.  (+info)

Strains of Actinomyces naeslundii and Actinomyces viscosus exhibit structurally variant fimbrial subunit proteins and bind to different peptide motifs in salivary proteins. (7/1930)

Oral strains of Actinomyces spp. express type 1 fimbriae, which are composed of major FimP subunits, and bind preferentially to salivary acidic proline-rich proteins (APRPs) or to statherin. We have mapped genetic differences in the fimP subunit genes and the peptide recognition motifs within the host proteins associated with these differential binding specificities. The fimP genes were amplified by PCR from Actinomyces viscosus ATCC 19246, with preferential binding to statherin, and from Actinomyces naeslundii LY7, P-1-K, and B-1-K, with preferential binding to APRPs. The fimP gene from the statherin-binding strain 19246 is novel and has about 80% nucleotide and amino acid sequence identity to the highly conserved fimP genes of the APRP-binding strains (about 98 to 99% sequence identity). The novel FimP protein contains an amino-terminal signal peptide, randomly distributed single-amino-acid substitutions, and structurally different segments and ends with a cell wall-anchoring and a membrane-spanning region. When agarose beads with CNBr-linked host determinant-specific decapeptides were used, A. viscosus 19246 bound to the Thr42Phe43 terminus of statherin and A. naeslundii LY7 bound to the Pro149Gln150 termini of APRPs. Furthermore, while the APRP-binding A. naeslundii strains originate from the human mouth, A. viscosus strains isolated from the oral cavity of rat and hamster hosts showed preferential binding to statherin and contained the novel fimP gene. Thus, A. viscosus and A. naeslundii display structurally variant fimP genes whose protein products are likely to interact with different peptide motifs and to determine animal host tropism.  (+info)

Bacterium-dependent induction of cytokines in mononuclear cells and their pathologic consequences in vivo. (8/1930)

Viridans streptococci are a heterogeneous group of gram-positive bacteria that are normal inhabitants of the mouth. These organisms are thought to contribute significantly to the etiology of infective endocarditis, although recently they have been implicated in serious infections in other settings. Another group of oral bacteria, gram-negative anaerobes, is associated with chronic dental infections, such as periodontal diseases or endodontic lesion formation. We evaluated the ability of the oral pathogens Streptococcus mutans and Porphyromonas endodontalis to induce a pathogenic response in vivo, with the goal of quantifying the inflammatory response in soft tissue by measuring leukocyte recruitment and hard tissues by measuring osteoclastogenesis. S. mutans induced a strong inflammatory response and was a potent inducer of osteoclast formation, while P. endodontalis was not. To further study the mechanisms by which P. endodontalis and S. mutans elicit significantly different levels of inflammatory responses in vivo, we tested the capacity of each to induce production of cytokines by mononuclear cells in vitro. S. mutans stimulated high levels of interleukin-12 (IL-12), gamma interferon (IFN-gamma), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), all of which are associated with inflammation, enhanced monocyte function, and generation of a Th1 response. In contrast, P. endodontalis stimulated production of IL-10 but not of TNF-alpha, IL-12, or IFN-gamma. These results demonstrate that oral pathogens differ dramatically in their abilities to induce inflammatory and immunoregulatory cytokines. Moreover, there is a high degree of correlation between the cytokine profile induced by these bacteria in vitro and their pathogenic capacity in vivo.  (+info)

Paramecium tetraurelia normally resorbs the pre-existing oral apparatus (and develops a new one) during sexual reproduction. Violation of this rule was found in amicronucleate cell lines. These cell lines generated chains of two cells (homopolar tandems) at a low frequency, as a result of incomplete binary fission during a transient growth depression period following emicronucleation. In autogamous chains, the proter resorbed the pre-existing oral structures, while some of the ospisthes retained them. The oral structures in the opisthes of the chains were unusually close to the opisthes anterior end. The ectopic location of these oral structures might account for their retention, formally understood in terms of the theory of positional information. It is suggested that nongenic factors, likely involving components of the rigid cortical matrix, are involved in the fixation of positional values.. ...

Download this Free Vector about Pills and human mouth, and discover more than 6 Million Professional Graphic Resources on Freepik
In human anatomy, the mouth is the first portion of the alimentary canal that receives food and produces saliva. The oral mucosa is the mucous membrane epithelium lining the inside of the mouth. In addition to its primary role as the beginning of the digestive system, in humans the mouth also plays a significant role in communication. While primary aspects of the voice are produced in the throat, the tongue, lips, and jaw are also needed to produce the range of sounds included in human language. The mouth consists of two regions, the vestibule and the oral cavity proper. The mouth, normally moist, is lined with a mucous membrane, and contains the teeth. The lips mark the transition from mucous membrane to skin, which covers most of the body. The mouth, consists of 2 regions, the vestibule and the oral cavity proper. The vestibule is the area between the teeth, lips and cheeks. The oral cavity is bounded at the sides and in front by the alveolar process (containing the teeth) and at the back by ...
While probiotics are widely used globally, currently none of the available probiotics on the market have been scientifically proven to prevent or treat oral disease. A goal of the healthy bacteria approach is to explore and enhance understanding of interactions between probiotic bacteria in oral biofilms, as well as between bacteria and human host cells. Recently, Dr. Edlunds laboratory discovered about 5,600 novel gene clusters from the human oral microbiome that are genetically similar to known natural products. Natural products play important roles in mediating communication between human and bacterial cells, suggesting that the human mouth is a highly diverse and underexplored environment for the discovery of novel therapeutics. In this project, the team will apply their new knowledge to formulate probiotics that target specific pathogens, such as those that cause tooth decay and thrush. We believe that this research will result in an arsenal of oral bacteria that produce novel natural ...
Imbalances in the oral microbial community have been associated with reduced cardiovascular and metabolic health. A possible mechanism linking the oral microbiota to health is the nitrate (NO3-)-nitrite (NO2-)-nitric oxide (NO) pathway, which relies on oral bacteria to reduce NO3- to NO2-. NO (generated from both NO2- and L-arginine) regulates vascular endothelial function and therefore blood pressure (BP). By sequencing bacterial 16S rRNA genes we examined the relationships between the oral microbiome and physiological indices of NO bioavailability and possible changes in these variables following 10 days of NO3- (12 mmol/d) and placebo supplementation in young (18-22 yrs) and old (70-79 yrs) normotensive humans (n = 18). NO3- supplementation altered the salivary microbiome compared to placebo by increasing the relative abundance of Proteobacteria (+225%) and decreasing the relative abundance of Bacteroidetes (−46%; P , 0.05). After NO3-supplementation the relative abundances of Rothia ...
Christmas seems to come earlier each year. Our thoughts turn to the exchange of gifts, time with family and friends and the inevitable office party. But you may find that you exchange more than a secret santa gift this year. A drunken kiss with a colleague could leave you with many million of their oral bacteria, according to a new study in Microbiome.. It is an oft-quoted fact that we have more bacterial cells living on us than the number of human cells were made from. Less well understood is how bacteria move between us, travelling from human to human, from human to animal (including our pets) and to and from our built environment.. The oral microbiome has been reasonably well studied over the last few years, showing that many species of bacteria make their home in the human oral cavity. Over 41 genera of bacteria and over 500 different species can be found in a healthy human mouth, capable of surviving in an uncertain environment with huge variations in nutrients, oxygen and acidity.. The ...
Oral health is defined as the health of all oral structures and while the usual focus lies on teeth, it is important to not neglect other oral structures such as the lips, tongue, inside lining of the mouth, roof of mouth or palate, soft palate, throat, and tonsils. Periodontal health should also be taken into consideration, as they are the supporting structures of the teeth which is crucial for adequate retention of teeth. All these play an important role in the functioning of the mouth hence need to be maintained at a satisfactory level in order to prevent problems. Continue reading →. ...

Mouth cancer refers to cancer that develops in any of the parts that make up the mouth. Mouth cancer can occur on the lips, gums, tongue, inside lining of the cheeks, and the roof and floor of the mouth. Cancer that occurs on the inside of the mouth is sometimes called oral cancer or oral cavity cancer. Mouth cancer is one of several types of cancer grouped in a category called head and neck cancers. Mouth cancer and other head and neck cancers are often treated similarly.. Signs and symptoms of mouth cancer may include:. Continue reading Mouth cancer →. ...
It is estimated that the human oral microbiota consists of over 600 individual taxa with ~200 being formally named species and only ~100 representing laboratory-cultivable strains. This lack of cultivability of many members of the population represents an enormous diversity of organisms about which we still know very little, This is particularly true with regard to the molecular and metabolic interactions that occur between species and their host or the role uncultivable species may play in disease initiation or progression. Although single bacterial species can be used to validate Kochs postulates and replicate specific oral diseases in carefully controlled model systems (e.g., gnotobiotic rodent models of caries with Streptococcus mutans and a cariogenic diet), human oral diseases are more complex and generally are recognized as being polymicrobial in origin. Periodontitis is recognized as an ecological disease. The so-called red complex of organisms seen in destructive periodontitis ...
This might be what is living in your mouth right now!. This picture, taken using a high-powered scanning electron microscope is of the bacteria commonly found in the human mouth. The different species of bacteria have been coloured so they can be seen clearly. You will notice they are different shapes and sizes.. Bacteria are tiny, organisms composed of only a single cell. There are more bacteria on earth than any other living thing. Bacteria can be found in every single type of environment you can think of: in hot, dry deserts, in ice and snow, at the bottom of the ocean, on the sides of volcanoes, inside rock crevices, and of course inside animals and people!. Some bacteria are harmful, like those pictured above which cause tooth decay, but but most serve a useful purpose. They support many forms of life, both plant and animal, and they are used in industrial and medicinal processes.. If you dont like bacteria, youre on the wrong planet ...
I am working on a science fair project this year and would like some additional information for my project. My problem is: How does ultraviolet light affect the growth of super oral bacteria? When ultraviolet light is applied to oral bacteria, it kills most of them. However, a small percentage will still be alive. This is super oral bacteria. That is the basis of the experiment, and I will be very appreciative to anyone who would offer information on ultraviolet light, transferring bacteria from agar plates, oral bacteria, or most importantly super bacteria in general. -------------------==== Posted via Deja News ====----------------------- Search, Read, Post to Usenet ...
Maintaining a good dental care routine is important, but no matter how clean your mouth is, it will always contain oral bacteria.

Your childs teeth and gum development is truly a wonder. In just a little more than two decades theyll gain and lose one set of teeth, while the subsequent permanent set will grow in coordination with other facial and oral structures. All of these structures will finally reach maturity sometime in early adulthood.. Sometimes, though, obstacles can arise: disease, trauma or even genetics can derail normal development and endanger future health. So although nature does most of the heavy lifting, there are things you should do to keep your childs dental development on track.. For instance, begin oral hygiene practices before their first teeth come in. By wiping their gums after feeding with a clean damp cloth, you can help reduce the numbers of disease-causing bacteria in the mouth. Once teeth appear switch to brushing.. There are also habits to avoid. Dont kiss your baby directly on the lips-you may transfer to them your own mouth bacteria, which their young immune system cant yet adequately ...

There is also the observation that the normal pH range of the human mouth falls slightly below the pH level untreated enamel can withstand, while it does not fall below the level that fluoridated enamel can. So while I still stand by my somewhat inaccurately-phrased statement, I must also admit that the relatively minor change in susceptibility to acidity is still a change may accomplish much if ones oral pH level regularly remains at the lower end of that normal range ...
Alas...Ive been suffering from one of the bugs that goes around at this time of year. Ill not bore you with a list of symptoms, save one.. Often at night I am unable to breath through my nose. I wind up having to breath through my mouth, which results in poor sleep, and a painfully dry mouth and throat.. The Mouth Mister is a small plastic hose attached to a pump and resovoir on one end, with the other end consisting of a valve small enough to be comfortable in your mouth overnight.. The valve has technology similar to that of a scuba regulator, but more easily triggered. When you inhale the valve opens and allows the pump to deliver a small amount of fine mist into your mouth. When you exhale the valve closes.. This would keep the mouth and throat from drying out so much, aiding in better sleep and a faster recovery ...

These are the most common causes of oral cancer. Smoking cigarettes and other tobacco products, such as pipes or cigars as well as taking in too much alcohol causes the mouth to be exposed to carcinogens or chemicals that can damage the DNA and make the cells cancerous. The risk of mouth cancer increases significantly in people who are both a heavy smokers and heavy drinkers. There are studies that have shown that heavy smokers who smoke 40 cigarettes a day, but do not drink, are five times more likely to develop mouth cancer than someone who does not drink or smoke. On the other hand a person who does not smoke but drink an average of 30 pints a week raises the risk of mouth cancer by five times as well. When these two habits are combined in an individual (more than 40 cigarettes a day as well as average of 30 pints of alcohol a week) the risk of developing mouth cancer becomes 38 times higher! ...

Traditional dental cleanings with fluoride and other chemicals kill the good bacteria and leave your mouth even more vulnerable to disease and decay because the good bacteria are what protect your mouth against these problems in the first place.. So if you are using commercial toothpaste and mouthwash, you are doing your body more harm than good by throwing off the bacterial balance and ecosystem.. According to Holistic Biological Dentist Dr. Scott Steward:. Professional dental cleanings used to be about just keeping the mouth clean. Now it is all about biocompatibility or keeping the good oral microorganisms healthy and eliminating the pathogenic (disease causing) microorganisms.. Because the mouth will never be sterile (it is full of germs!), the new paradigm is all about controlling the number and kinds of organisms to achieve a healthy balance..

Constructs including a blank and a body formed from liquid molding material are provided. The blank may be hermetically sealed to the body. For example, a mold assembly may injection mold the blank to the body. The mold assembly may include a male mold and a female mold that cooperatively define a first cavity and a second cavity. The first cavity may receive a peripheral margin of the blank and the second cavity may receive the remainder of the blank. Liquid molding material may be directed into the first cavity to form the body of the construct. The liquid molding material may be directed into the first cavity in a manner that avoids bending the peripheral margin of the blank such that a tight seal is established between the blank and the body of the construct and the blank retains a planar configuration.

Studies in the past have looked at viral communities of the respiratory and digestive tracts, suggesting viruses may influence the microbial eco-system and health of the human.. But less is known about the effect on the oral microbiome which could have significant implications for diseases of the oral cavity, according to this recent study. David Pride, of the University of California and lead author of the report, says: We knew that bacteria developed specific resistance to viruses. But before this study, we had no idea of the extent to which certain oral bacteria in humans have utilised these resistance mechanisms against viruses.. The team of experts carried out the tests on four healthy subjects over the course of 17 months, by obtaining saliva samples from each and analysed specific bacterial DNA elements that confer acquired immunity against viral attack.. They then sequenced them with corresponding streptococcal repeats. The study of the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short ...
Today hasnt been a good day. Reagan slept in late this morning (which is usually a good thing) but I had to wake her up at 8:30am so I could at least get her medicine down her before we had to hit the road (and she was having more seizures than weve been seeing lately). We had a 9:30am appt with the Dentist at TX Childrens so we didnt have time to try to get some real food in her, just medicine (bad idea). A huge issue is that Reagan doesnt get hungry, so if she skips a meal or its delayed, she never really catches back up for the day. And for some reason right now (maybe its the teething) shes really fighting me and not wanting to drink her bottles at all. It literally just drips into her mouth and she may or may not swallow it. Anyway, the first comment out of the super personable Dentists mouth (not) was I see shes still on a bottle! Then he opens her mouth says Shes a grinder.

The Mouth of Sauron had served Sauron all his life, and had forgotten his own name. A Man of great stature, he was potentially the equal of the Dúnedain, but had fallen into darkness. He had learned much sorcery during his time under Sauron, and knew many of the Dark Lords plans. As a Black Númenórean he probably came from the Haven of Umbar, and it is stated that he entered the service of the Dark Tower when it first rose again. The Dark Tower rose again when rebuilding began in the year 2951 of the Third Age, which means he entered Saurons service shortly after that. Umbar had been defeated by Gondor under Thorongil (Aragorns name in his youth) in 2980, so the Mouth might have fled to Mordor then. If this mention of the second arising of the Dark Tower is taken literally (see below), then the Mouth of Sauron had been in the service of his master for 68 years by the time the Third Age ended. If his service began as a youth who was subsequently cowed, bewitched and indoctrinated by his ...

The Meckelian Cartilage, also known as "Meckel's Cartilage", is a piece of cartilage from which the mandibles (lower jaws) of vertebrates evolved. Originally it was the lower of two cartilages which supported the first branchial arch in early fish. Then it grew longer and stronger, and acquired muscles capable of closing the developing jaw.[1]. In early fish and in chondrichthyans (cartilaginous fish such as sharks), the Meckelian Cartilage continued to be the main component of the lower jaw. But in the adult forms of osteichthyans (bony fish) and their descendants (amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals), the cartilage was covered in bone - although in their embryos the jaw initially develops as the Meckelian Cartilage. In all tetrapods the cartilage partially ossifies (changes to bone) at the rear end of the jaw and becomes the articular bone, which forms part of the jaw joint in all tetrapods except mammals.[1]. In some extinct mammal groups like eutriconodonts, the Meckel's cartilage still ...
