N2 - The correlation between subclinical candidal colonization of the dorsal tongue surface and the Walter Reed staging scheme for patients positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) antibody is reported. Of 76 cytologic smears of the dorsal tongue surface, 12 (16.2%) demonstrated subclinical colonization. The mean peripheral helper T-lymphocyte count for patients with subclinical colonization was 304 ± 226 cells/mm3 and was not significantly different from seropositive patients without colonization (411 ± 209 cells/mm3). The Walter Reed scheme for assessing progressive immunodysregulation did not significantly correlate with the presence of subclinical ...
Normal tongue tie can make the tongue so easily, can be naturally extended extraoral tongue, or lick up the upper gum.But few childrens tongue tie growth is not normal, there may be tongue tie is too short (commonly known as climbing tongue) phenomenon, clinical manifestations of the tongue can not normally reach freedom, tongue protruding mouth portion is less than the length of normal children, and When tongue protrusion tongue because the tongue is pulled tendons and appear sunken, tongue W shape (when normal V-shaped tongue out tongue), may also affect breast-feeding or friction with the lower front teeth, ulceration..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Fatiguing contractions of tongue protrudor and retractor muscles. T2 - Influence of systemic hypoxia. AU - Fuller, David D.. AU - Fregosi, Ralph F.. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2020 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - The influence of systemic hypoxia on the endurance performance of tongue protrudor and retractor muscles was examined in anesthetized, ventilated rats. Tongue protrudor (genioglossus) or retractor (hyoglossus and styloglossus) muscles were activated via medial or lateral XII nerve branch stimulation (0.1-ms pulse; 40 Hz; 330-ms trains; 1 train/s). Maximal evoked potentials (M waves) of genioglossus and hyoglossus were monitored with electromyography. Fatigue tests were performed under normoxic and hypoxic (arterial PO2 = 50 ± 1 Torr) conditions in separate animals. The fatigue index (FI; %initial force) after 5 min of normoxic stimulation was 85 ± 6 and 79 ± 7% for tongue protrudor and retractor muscles, respectively; these values were ...
A large tongue was regarded as a possible cause of mandibular prognathism by Köle in 1965 [13], and on many further occasions. They also found that those subjects with mandibular prognathism showed tongue volumes similar to those of the control group [6]. So the exact role of the tongue in SCIII patients had not been clarified as yet. However, the majority of this data were without accurate quantitative information on tongues volumes.. As the tongue is encased within the oral cavity when at rest, direct measurement of its real dimensions within the oral cavity is difficult. Therefore, various techniques have been developed for evaluating the tongues size in vivo: direct tongue measurements [14], different impression techniques [9] and the fluid displacement method [15] but were unable to measure the interior portion of the tongue. Furthermore, different imaging techniques have been introduced to assess the tongue volume: cephalometrics [16], computed tomography (CT) [17], cone-beam computed ...
The deep lingual artery (or ranine artery) is the terminal portion of the lingual artery after the sublingual artery is given off. As seen in the picture, it travels superiorly in a tortuous course along the under (ventral) surface of the tongue, below the longitudinalis inferior, and above the mucous membrane. It lies on the lateral side of the genioglossus, the main large extrinsic tongue muscle, accompanied by the lingual nerve. However, as seen in the picture, the deep lingual artery passes inferior to the hyoglossus (the cut muscle on the bottom) while the lingual nerve (not pictured) passes superior to it (for a comparison, the hypoglossal nerve, pictured, passes superior to the hyoglossus). At the tip of the tongue, it is said to anastomose with the artery of the opposite side, but this is denied by Hyrtl.[citation needed] In the mouth, these vessels are placed one on either side of the frenulum linguæ. ...
The tongue muscles form two distinct groups - extrinsic muscles, whose fibers arise outside of the tongue and then converge into the substance of the tongue, and intrinsic muscles, whose fibers are completely within the tongue. Both groups develop from the occipital somites at the base of the developing cranium. The ventral motor roots from the brainstem-spinal cord transition enter these somites to form the hypoglossal nerve, which innervates all of the tongue muscles. In general, the extrinsic muscles modify the position of the tongue, while the intrinsic muscles modify its shape. Tongue muscles do not act in isolation, but in varied combinations to produce the wide array of intricate tongue motions. These motions are essential for the acquisition, manipulation, and swallowing of food, and also play important roles in molding the vocal sounds, produced by the larynx, into the words we speak ...

Men, whose tongues are sharp swords? Yes, some men have tongues like that. Maybe you date men, whose tongues are sharp swords or youre married to one. What do you do to stop that abusive behavior?. Denial. Maybe you look the other way and pretend nothing is happening. Your family, friends, and coworkers see and hear it, but you cant look at it. If you admit your spouse has a tongue like a sharp sword, then you must do something about it. The thought of confrontation and the work involved not to tolerate that abuse any longer may overwhelm you. It may seem easier to deny it.. Cindy stayed in an abusive marriage for years. She told me, I thought all men talked to their wives that way. I didnt think I could do anything about it. Minimization. On the other hand, you may admit you date men, whose tongues are sharp swords, or youre married to one. Perhaps you recite the childrens rhyme: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me.. That isnt true. Because of that ...

Physicians by the help of the tongue are giving many diagnosis. It can easily tell the sign of cold, hepatitis C, fever, bad intestine performance or headaches. Thats why when we are visiting doctors, first of all they are checking our tongue.. If the person is healthy the tongues color is pink and clean, covered with little bumps which recognize taste.. If the tongue is having a red, white or black color, it is indicating that something isnt right with our body.. The swollen tongue, it may indicates on having an allergy. The dark tongue, usually means extreme antibiotics use or AIDS symptoms.. The long ridges tongue, usually is indicating on sexually transmitted illness, known as syphilis. Sturdy and sleek tongue is telling that you have deficiency of Vitamin B12.. Bumps, sores and sudden tongue bleeding, are the gravest things, which can be seen to a tongue. Unfortunately, in the latest decade, those are the most often indicators of early tongue cancer signals.. Many studies have been made ...
Note: there are two types of tongue tie. The one you probably think of, when the tongue is connected to the bottom of the mouth all the way to the tip, is an anterior tongue tie. A posterior tongue tie is tied further back, where its difficult to see and diagnose. A tie restricts the movement of the tongue and makes breastfeeding difficult and painful; posterior ties restrict the motion of the middle and back of the tongue, essential to the tongues wave action and suction. Back in the day, when everyone breastfed, tongue ties were cut by midwives as soon as they were noticed. When the country moved to so much bottle feeding, doctors stopped clipping tongue ties. Its only very recently that there has been a resurgence of evidence that tongue clipping is a quick, easy way to improve a breastfeeding relationship thats failing because of a tie ...
The position of the tongue is very important. The tongue is a powerful muscle that can change the shape of your face and teeth, and the way you talk and breathe.. To have the correct facial feature, the tongue needs to be in the right position. The correct posture for the tongue is when your lips are touching each other (without straining); your tongue is relaxed along the palate, with the rear end of the tongue pulled back and the tip of the tongue resting behind the top front teeth (not pushing it).. If the tongue is not placed like this and is putting pressure on the bottom part of the mouth, the maxilla- upper jaw bone- changes structure, resulting in a long and narrow shaped face. The lack of pressure from the tongue pushes the cheeks inside and cause the teeth to crowd.. Other than this, the position of the tongue matters because it can cause breathing problems, including sleep apnea.. The short lingual frenum leads to a restricted use of the tongue and a lower placement of it in the ...
A sore tongue is usually a symptom of irritation or inflammation of the surface or deep tissue of the tongue. The tongue is one of the several parts of the mouth cavity and any disease that affects the tongue may also involve the other structures like the lips, gum, teeth, inner cheek lining, palate and back of the throat. However, there are cases where the soreness of the tongue occurs on its own without involving the other structures of the mouth cavity, or where the soreness is most severe in the tongue. Soreness can also occur in the absence of any disease of the tissue of the tongue. This may be related to nerve pain - either irritation of the nerve or referred pain from surrounding structures with a common nerve supply.. A sore tongue is a symptom of some underlying disease and not a condition on its own. It is important to understand the basic structure and different parts of the tongue in order to identify the location of the soreness and other tongue symptoms that may be present.. ...
Motor symptoms in Huntingtons Disease (HD) are commonly assessed by the Unified Huntingtons Disease Rating Scale-Total Motor Score (UHDRS-TMS). However, the UHDRS-TMS is limited by interrater variability, its categorical nature, and insensitivity in premanifest subjects. More objective and quantitative measures of motor phenotype may complement the use of the UHDRS-TMS as outcome measure and increase the power and sensitivity of clinical trials. Deficits in tongue protrusion are well acknowledged in HD and constitute a subitem of the UHDRS-TMS. We, therefore, investigated whether objective and quantitative assessment of tongue protrusion forces (TPF) provides measures that (1) correlate to the severity of motor phenotype detected in the UHDRS-TMS in symptomatic HD, (2) detect a motor phenotype in premanifest HD gene-carriers, and (3) exhibit a correlation to the genotype as assessed by a disease burden score (based on CAG-repeat length and age). Using a precalibrated force transducer, the ...
We examined changes in the expression and localization of connexin proteins and transcripts by means of immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization in normal conditions, wound healing and carcinogenesis using hamster tongue epithelium, in which differentiation, migration and growth of keratinocytes takes place physiologically and pathologically. In normal hamster tongue epithelium, immunofluorescent staining showed that Cx26 and Cx43 proteins were localized differently during differentiation of keratinocytes, but in in situ hybridization, the localization of Cx26 and Cx43 transcripts overlapped considerably, suggesting that the different localization of Cx26 and Cx43 proteins in squamous epithelium is largely regulated at post-transcriptional levels. During wound healing, the expression and localization of connexin proteins and transcripts were changed drastically. Shortly (6 h) after injury the expression of Cx26 and Cx43 proteins decreased at wound edges, but by 1-3 days after injury the ...
To clean your tongue, brush the entire surface with a clean toothbrush, applying light pressure from the back of the tongue to the front. Alternatively, take a good length of floss and wrap each end around your middle fingers. Apply downward pressure with your index fingers and drag the floss from the back to the front of your tongue several times. Rinse the floss in between scrapings. or you can use a tongue cleaner (also called a tongue scraper) is an oral hygiene device designed to clean the bacterial build-up, food debris, fungi, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. Tongue cleaners lift and remove these materials from the tongue surface. The tongue cleaner should be used before using tooth brush in the morning, and not after. ...
Continued From Above... bone, which lies deep in the muscles at the back of the tongue) above the larynx. The muscle fibers are heavily supplied with nerves, so it can manipulate food in the mouth and place it between the teeth for chewing - without being bitten in the process. The tongue also aids in the formation of sounds of speech and coordinates its movements to aid in swallowing.. Although the tongue may seen to be floating freely in the floor of the mouth, it is actually anchored in all directions by the four extrinsic muscle sets, which work together to move the tongue in virtually any direction. The movements they produce, however, are pretty coarse, and fine shape changes are the province of the intrinsic tongue muscles.. The extrinsic muscles are arranged in four groups. Contraction of one set of these muscles (on either side) makes the tongue stick out as its whole foundation is pulled forward. Another set passes from the side of the tongue down to one arm of the wishbone-shaped ...
What are the most common tongue piercing problems?. To pierce a tongue, the body piercer must first hold it steady with a clamp. Next, a hollowed, pointed metal needle is driven through the tongue. Finally, the piercer attaches the tongue bar to the bottom end of the needle, and then drags it upwards through the tongue. Two metal screw-on balls are then used to secure the tongue bar.. Most commonly, severe pain and swelling are experienced for several days after the piercing episode. Moreover, the new holes in the tongue are especially infection-prone, because the oral cavity is home to many bacteria colonies. In the medium term, saliva production may increase as the body responds to a completely unnatural entity in the mouth.. Are there long-term problems associated with tongue piercing?. Long-term problems with tongue piercings are very common. The screw-on balls constantly scrape against tooth enamel, making teeth susceptible to decay and gums susceptible to periodontal disease.

Tongue Diagnosis. The tongue is the organ of taste and speech. Size, shape, contour, surface, margins, and color are the characteristics one can observe on the tongue. A pale tongue may indicate an anemic condition or lack of blood in the body. An yellowish tongue may suggest that excess bile present in the gallbladder or a possible liver disorder. A blue tongue is normally an indication of problems with the heart. Different areas of the tongue corresponds to different organs of the body. Hence by correlating the location of the blemishes on the tongue, the Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which organs of the body are out of balance.
The ancient art of tongue diagnosis also describes quite characteristic patterns that can reveal the functional status of respective internal organs merely by observing the surface of the tongue. The tongue is the mirror of the viscera.. A discoloration and /or sensitivity of a particular area of the tongue indicates a disorder in the organ corresponding to that area. A whitish tongue indicates a kapha derangement and mucus accumulation; a red or yellow-green tongue indicates a pitta derangement; and a black to brown coloration indicates a vata derangement. A dehydrated tongue is symptomatic of a decrease in the rasa dhatu (plasma), while a pale tongue indicates a decrease in the rakta dhatu (red blood cells).. The front one-third of the tongue relates to the lungs, heart, chest, and neck. Froth in the middle of this area is often a sign of low lung energy with damp and cold lungs and may translate as a cold, bronchitis, asthma, or respiratory allergy. If there is a small depression in the heart ...

Eight healthy men were asked to ingest liquids, and sample foods of different gel consistencies and volumes, as usual. Tongue pressure against the hard palate was recorded at five points, and bolus flow was recorded using videoendoscopic images. The number of squeezes increased as gel consistency and volume increased. The integrated magnitude of tongue pressure during squeezing increased with increasing gel consistency. Bolus propulsion into the pharynx was affected by bolus characteristics, and location of the bolus head at the onset of pharyngeal swallowing was not related to squeezing behavior. The trigger point at which ...
The tongue is a muscular hydrostat that forms part of the floor of the oral cavity. The left and right sides of the tongue are separated by a vertical section of fibrous tissue known as the lingual septum. This division is along the length of the tongue save for the very back of the pharyngeal part and is visible as a groove called the median sulcus. The human tongue is divided into anterior and posterior parts by the terminal sulcus which is a V-shaped groove. The apex of the terminal sulcus is marked by a blind foramen, the foramen cecum, which is a remnant of the median thyroid diverticulum in early embryonic development. The anterior oral part is the visible part situated at the front and makes up roughly two-thirds the length of the tongue. The posterior pharyngeal part is the part closest to the throat, roughly one-third of its length. These parts differ in terms of their embryological development and nerve supply. The anterior tongue is, at its apex (or tip), thin and narrow, it is ...
This can indicate a yeast infection. Our tongue normally has an amount of naturally-occurring bacteria and yeast. However, when we consume antibiotics, they can kill of the bacteria on our tongues, and the yeast takes over and overruns the tongue, giving rise to the white appearance.

After her controversial VMA performance, Miley Cyrus has constantly been in the headlines with her antics and her favourite pose for the paparazzi is currently to stick her tongue out; however, this has led some experts and music industry colleagues to question whether the appearance of Mileys tongue indicates some health problems. Singing legend Cher recently voiced her opinion, saying Chick, dont stick out your tongue if its coated.. The co-founder of victoriahealth.com Shabir Daya also weighed in on the issue, commenting that your tongue is a window into whats happening in your body; colour, coating, and cracks are all indicators of the state of your health.. Miley might not think sticking her tongue out reveals much about her health and eating habits, but Daya added that a healthy tongue has a thin, white and moist coating and any deviation from this indicates possible problems. He added that small protrusions in the tongue can harbour food allowing bacteria and fungi to thrive ...

I am an IBCLC and I did not realize I was tongue tied until I was 67 years old as I was putting together the information on adult tongue ties. I had my tongue and lower lip tie released. I am glad I did. In my case I went to Dr. Stacy V. Cole in Fort Worth, TX. I urge every parent who has a tongue tied baby to have the trusted provider also take a look at their lips/tongue. If you can have it released at the same visit as the child, even better! I can say the laser release was less painful than having bone grafts, implants, root canals, and extractions and filling that I have had because of the tongue and lip ties. The constant ear infections I had as a child until I finally lost my tonsils and adenoids were very uncomfortable too. I remember the years of ear infections and ear aches and tooth aches, common things for tongue tied people. Thankfully I have not had TMJ, teeth grinding, or headaches, and these are the tip of the iceberg ...
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), pressure and noise measurements are used to study the effect of modifications to tongue and impeller geometries on the flow structure and resulting noise in a centrifugal pump. It is demonstrated that the primary sources of noise are associated with interactions of the non-uniform outflux from the impeller (jet/wake phenomenon) with the tongue. Consequently, significant reduction of noise is achieved by increasing the gap between the tongue and the impeller up to about 20% of the impeller radius. Further increase in the gap affects the performance adversely with minimal impact on the noise level. When the gap is narrow, the primary sources of noise are impingement of the wake on the tip of the tongue, and tongue oscillations when the pressure difference across it is high. At about 20% gap, the entire wake and its associated vorticity trains miss the tongue, and the only (quite weak) effect of nonuniform outflux is the impingement of the jet on the tongue. An ...
Tongue Point Naval Air Station is a former United States Navy air station which was located within the former U.S. Naval Station Tongue Point Astoria, Oregon In 1919, the United States Congress approved the construction of a submarine and destroyer base on Tongue Point, a peninsula jutting into the Columbia River East of Astoria, Oregon. Construction was not started until 1921 and was completed in 1924. However, with the military downsizing following World War I, the base was never used.[citation needed] Prior to World War II Tongue Point was designated as the site of a Naval Air Station (NAS). Ground breaking took place in 1939 but there were a numerous delays until construction was finally completed in 1943. hangars, an ordnance depot and fuel depot were constructed.

The lamina propria of the tongue extends between the lingual muscle fasciculi and contains the lingual glands of mucous, serous, and mixed types, small blood vessels, and nerves. The parasympathetic preganglionic neuron cell bodies are in the brain stem; the postganglionic neuron cell bodies are in the peripheral parasympathetic ganglia, which are associated with certain cranial nerves and innervate the viscera, glands, blood vessels, and smooth muscles. Small subsidiary ganglia occur near these ganglia (Baumann and Gajisin, 1975). The existence of nerve ganglia, within the musculature of the mammalian tongue was known (Barker, 1899). The ganglia were found along deeply placed nerve bundles in the tongue of the cat, rabbit, rat, and hedgehog; some were located close to terminal branches of the hypoglossal nerve (Gerne and Garwan, 1952). Groups of nerve cells were found in the tongue musculature of cat, lamb, monkey, and man; larger ganglia were also found on the chordalingual; and ...

The tongue is not a large organ, but of course a very important one. It is made of muscle, connective and fatty tissue, blood vessels and nerves. There are small, mushroom-shaped protrusions called papillae that cover the top of the tongue and aid in tasting.. A dogs tongue has many uses besides tasting food and lapping water. The tongue helps to regulate body temperature when the dog pants. Its an aid in chewing and swallowing. A dog uses the tongue to clean him/herself, lick sores and irritations, groom itself and puppies. And of course to kiss (lick) us. The tongue is also an indicator of an illness or disease that can arise with itself or other oral conditions. The color, a coating or the texture can show a problem in another part of the body. ...

Flickers have a sticky tongue with a barb at the tip-when a flicker probes the subterranean tunnels of an anthill, a dozen or more ants may adhere to the surface each time the bird pulls in its tongue thanks to the stickiness. But flickers do not live by ants alone. When one hears an insect in the wood of a tree, it can hammer with its bill to make a hole down to the bug, and not have to widen the hole at all-once it exposes the tasty morsel, it can pull back its head and stick in just the thin little tongue to grab the grub and pull it in. Without that extrusive tongue, it would have to make the hole significantly larger in order to probe it with the bill open like a forceps. The tongue allows it to save time and get a higher percentage of food items, since every minute spent hacking into a tree provides more opportunities for a dangerous situation to force the woodpecker to fly off without the meal. Ive never taken a photo of a woodpeckers tongue fully extended, but have a few with the ...

Transcript. Do you have a fat tongue?. We know thats a strange question.. But researchers say if youre one of the 1 billion people globally who snore, choke, gasp or stop breathing during the night, your tongue could be a key reason.. A new study published Friday found a connection between having a fat tongue and sleep apnea.. Researchers studied 67 obese patients with obstructive sleep apnea and measured how a 10% weight loss could affect their upper airways.. They also found that patients could reduce their tongue size by losing overall body fat and that improved sleep apnea scores by more than 30%.. But researchers admit more studies need to be conducted because there are many people who suffer sleep apnea who are not overweight.. That means something else could be at play.. You can read more about the study in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.. The Closed Caption version of this video can be found here: https://sign1news.com/.

Fig. 1. Schematic dorso-ventral representation of the tongue of Python molurus and its extrinsic muscles. (A) Abbreviations: cbr, ceratobranchial; m, mandible; dsh, distal tongue ensheathing; ggl, m. genioglossus; hgl, m. hyoglossus; psh, proximal tongue ensheathing; sh, tongue sheet. The dental bone forms the local coordinate system of the head. Although the head is highly deformable during feeding, the lower jaws do not deform during tongue flicking. The position of the ceratobranchials is assumed to be fixed to the skull during tongue flicking (e.g. Bels et al., 1994). The mm. genioglossi and the mm. hyoglossi are able to protract and retract the tongue relative to the mandibles and ceratobranchials. Proximally on the tongue, the mm. hyoglossi are ensheathed. This tubular tongue sheet encloses the tongue distally up to the tongue tips, inverts into itself and connects to the tongue at the distal tongue ensheathing (McDowell, 1972). The outer tongue sheet is connected to the muscles and ...
Conditions of the Tongue Hairy Tongue Hairy tongue is a benign change of the top surface of the tongue that is characterized by elongation of the many small nodules called papillae. It gets is name because the papillae resemble stubby hairs. The papillae can become stained from coffee, tea, colored soda, or bacteria. The cause is unknown but it is usually seen during antibiotic use, in smokers, in persons using stomach antacids, or in hospitalized and/or debilitated patients. Usually it is asymptomatic but may produce bad breath or cause a burning sensation. Treatment is to scrape the tongue, which will remove the papilla but the condition can recur. Fissured Tongue Fissured Tongue is a condition in which cracks or fissures are observed on the surface of the tongue. Food debris and some bacteria colonies may form in the fissures but this is almost always a condition with no symptoms. No treatment is necessary once it is properly diagnosed.

TY - GEN. T1 - Ultrasonography Classification of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Through Dynamic Tongue Base Motion Tracking and Tongue Area Measurements. AU - Manlises, Cyrel Ontimare. AU - Chen, Jeng Wen. AU - Huang, Chih Chung. PY - 2020/1/1. Y1 - 2020/1/1. N2 - Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a chronic breathing disorder that most of the time people are oblivious of the symptoms which may delay the diagnosis and may lead to long-term health consequences such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Ultrasonography is currently used to discern the real behavior of the upper airway (UA) in patients with OSA. However, previous methods were not enough to reveal the possible pathophysiology and biomechanics of the human UA. The aim of this study is to use the modified optical flow (OF)-based method in tracking the dynamic tongue base motion, utilizing nine tracking points, to effectively classify which group each subject belongs to. The classification groups are normal, mild, moderate, and ...

I have already mentioned that there are only three places in the Bible where people spoke in tongues: Acts 2:1-11; 10:44-46; 19:1-6.. The central and most important Bible passage on the subject of tongues is found in Acts 2:1-11. First, it is important because it is the first time tongues are discussed in the New Testament. Second, it is important because speaking in tongues was on a larger scale in Acts 2 than in either of the other cases mentioned. Third, it is the most important passage because this is the only instance where we can be absolutely sure that speaking in tongues was a miraculous gift.. Acts 2:4 states: And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.. In Acts 10 and 19 the Bible simply says they spake with tongues. There is no hint that speaking in tongues in Acts 10 or 19 was a supernatural gift. Only in Acts 2:4 does the Bible say as the Spirit gave them utterance.. Now, what was the motive behind this ...
Tongue cancer is still one of the leading causes of mortality around the world. Recently, the ubiquitin system has been established as a critical modulator of tumors. In order to find the oral cancer related E3 ubiquitin ligases, we screened the human E3 ubiquitin ligase library and found that RING finger protein 139 (RNF139) regulated the biological behavior of tongue cancer cells. MTT assay was used to analyze the cell viability changes of tongue cancer SCC9 and SCC25 cells caused by RNF139. The invasion ability of SCC9 and SCC25 cells with or without the knockdown of RNF139 was evaluated through transwell assay. The immunoblotting was recruited to determine the expression level of RNF139 in human tongue cancer tissues and para-carcinoma tissues. The effect of RNF139 on tumorigenicity of tongue cancer cells was analyzed by xenograft model on immunodeficient Balb/c nude mice. Overexpression of RNF139 inhibits the viability of tongue cancer cells since day 2. The colony formation ability of SCC9 and
A 69-year-old woman presented with a 4-year history of dysphagia, dysarthria, and muscle wasting of the left half of her tongue. There were no other orofacial symptoms. The patient had undergone left marginal resection of the mandible in combination with supraomohyoid neck dissection 6. Years earlier for a malignant tumor of the left mandible. On physical examination, the left half of the tongue was atrophied and deviated to the left on protrusion (Figure 1). A computed tomographic scan showed low density with atrophy of the left side of the tongue indicating the development of fatty infiltration (Figure 2).. There was no cervical lymphadenopathy. Positron emission computed tomographic scanning confirmed no tumor recurrence in the neck. Since the hypoglossal nerve (twelfth cranial nerve) supplies motor innervation to the muscles of the tongue, denervation caused by the damage to the hypoglossal nerve is manifest as hemiatrophy of the tongue ...

The taste centers are in the cortex and in the thalamus of the brain. The organ of taste is the tongue. The surface of the tongue is covered with thousands of tiny fronds or papillae, which give it a velvety sheen. The taste buds, the primary organs of taste, are found within these papillae. There are four type of papillae-filiform, fungiform, foliate and vallate. Filiform and fungiform papillae are found on the front half of the tongue, and foliate papillae at the back. Filiform are threadlike in shape and more numerous than the mushroom-shaped fungiform type. Vallate papillae form a V across the back of the tongue. The base of the tongue is devoid of papillae, but is covered with nodules of lymphoid tissue, which make up the lingual tonsil. A taste bud consists of taste cells, with hairs that project into the moats surrounding the papillae, supporting cells and nerves. The salivary glands are connected by nerves to the taste buds. Stimulation of the taste buds stimulates the salivary glands to ...
Would you describe it as burning tongue/mouth cuz a condition called burning mouth syndrome or stomatopyrosis, which usually appears in women after menopause. This condition is poorly understood, and it represents many different conditions that have the same symptoms. Burning is usually located on tongue, and its sometimes related to Candida. There are some other possible causes, such as ill-fitting dentures, allergies to dental materials, mouth rinses and sprays and certain foods and food additives. Burning on tongue can also be caused by deficiency of certain vitamins, such as folic acid and B-complex. Beside tongue, lips and roof of the mouth can be affected too. Burning mouth syndrome is not easy to treat. You should drink water frequently and chew sugar-free gums, because it could help your mouth moist. Either way maybe get it checked out cuz you know with having CD it can affect any part of your GI tract which includes your mouth ...

In the current study, diabetic mice exhibited delayed mucosal wound healing compared with normoglycemic mice when small mucosal wounds were created on the dorsal tongue surface. One day after wounding, diabetic wound gaps were 71% larger than corresponding wounds in normoglycemic mice. All the wounds in normoglycemic mice had a high degree of healing after 2 days, whereas only 17% of the diabetic mice exhibited this degree of healing. Mechanistically, the impaired healing in diabetic animals can be explained by a large decrease in epithelial migration (83%) and a moderate decrease in proliferation (54%). The in vivo results were supported by in vitro experiments, which demonstrated that high glucose significantly reduced migration of oral epithelial cells by 54% and proliferation by 33%. Thus, diabetes affects healing of mucosal wounds by negatively affecting migration and proliferation. The result contrasts with cutaneous wound healing in which hyperglycemia has a profound effect on migration ...

The rate of young, white women being diagnosed with one type of tongue cancer has more than doubled in 30 years, and researchers arent sure why. The usual suspects, such as tobacco use or human papillomavirus, dont seem to be at work, according to a new study.. The analysis of National Cancer Institute data, which revealed a 111 percent increase in cases of squamous-cell tongue cancer among young white women, found a 43.7 percent increase among young, white men over the same period. Meanwhile, the tongue cancer rates decreased for people of other age groups and ethnicities.. Smoking isnt likely to account for the increase in tongue cancer, because other studies have shown a decrease in tobacco use over the last few decades in the United States, said Dr. Bhisham Chera, an assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.. Ive treated a handful of these patients, and theyre all a higher socioeconomic status, Chera told ...

Using a hierarchical sequence, the four hypotheses (genioglossus activity as well as duty-cycle in protocol 1 and 2) were tested with an α-error of 5% (two-tailed testing) without adjustment for multiple testing.29 The following sequence was defined: first, we tested whether genioglossus electromyogram differs between states. Possible differences in duty-cycle were tested subsequently only if the hypothesis of no difference in genioglossus activity during ketamine anesthesia was rejected. With statistical comparison of both main criteria (genioglossus activity and duty-cycle) we first tested if variables differed in the acute experiments (protocol 1); subsequent tests were performed if, and only if, all previous tests were significant to compare variables in chronically instrumented rats. Statistical comparisons were made by using a mixed linear model (compound symmetry type). We used data from rats studied under protocol 1 and tested for an effect of the independent variables (fixed effects: ...
By using their high tech cameras, the researchers found that the hummingbirds were actually using their tongues to enclose the fluids. Each hummingbird tongue contains two forks that can each curl inward to form two tiny tubes. As the tongue enters the nectar solution, the forks spread open. Over the next 15 milliseconds, those forks close into tubes, entrapping the enclosed liquid and bringing it into the birds mouth. Hummingbirds can perform this act up to 20 times each second. The mechanism of opening and curling into tubes is so energy efficient that even the tongues of dead birds will open and shut when drawn in and out of sugar solutions ...
