Cost-effectiveness of non-surgical peri-implantitis treatments

submitted by: slistl
Aim: The purpose of the present study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of various alternatives of non-surgical peri-implantitis treatment. Materials and Methods: A decision analytical model was constructed and populated with parameter estimates from recent literature for reduction in pocket probing depth (PPD) in response to eight different treatment alternatives. A micro-costing approach combined with an online expert survey was applied to simulate a decision-making scenario taking...

Abstract: Very rare single nucleotide variants are the most prevalent form of genetic diversity in the human population. Such variants are generally refered to as Variants of Unknown Significance (VUS). It is expected that VUS will attract increasing attention of the medical services as possibly associated with clinical disease or disease predisposition. The considerations above call...

New Mantle Cell Lymphoma treatments improving survival and response rates

submitted by: mdanderson
Ongoing clinical research at MD Anderson is finding promising new therapies for a rare and aggressive type of lymphoma that becomes resistant to treatment. Although mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) currently has no cure, combinations of new targeted therapy drugs are dramatically improving survival and treatment response rates for MCL patients. MD Anderson lymphoma specialists Jorge Romaguera, M.D. and Michael Wang, M.D., discuss these mantle cell lymphoma treatments and their search for new...

Achieving restful sleep is a primary aid in helping patients get through cancer treatment. For many, slowing down the mind at bedtime is difficult. Yoga nidra retains your system to reach states of deep relaxation after stressful periods. Smitha Mallaiah, mind/body intervention...

Minimally invasive surgery treating cancer

submitted by: mdanderson
Minimally invasive, or endoscopic, surgery takes advantage of advances in computer imaging and robotics to provide effective surgical cancer treatment with a much smaller impact on the patient. Surena Matin, M.D., medical director of the Minimally Invasive and New Technology in Oncologic Surgery (MINTOS) Collaborative Group at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses treatment options using this treatment option for diseases such as prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer and gynecologic...
