    Abstract: Colonoscopy is routinely performed worldwide, but it is still a physically stressful screening method for colorectal cancer, particularly in elderly individuals. No previous study has evaluated physical stress from colonoscopy itself and polypectomy using blood-derived biomarkers. This study aimed to evaluate physical stress from colonoscopy and po...

    Abstract: In addition to caries, dental trauma is one of the most common causes of damage to permanent teeth and pulp. Pulp necrosis or damage to Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath (HERS) leads to arrested tooth root development in immature teeth. Pulp necrosis can be treated by revitalization, a biology-based treatment alternative to apexification. Induction ... Show More

    Abstract: Clinically, Lobelia chinensis has the potential to treat Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS) infections. This study demonstrated that Lobelia chinensis and penicillin have comparative inhibitory effects when their concentration was 12 mg/mL. To uncover the possible pathways of inhibition of GAS by Lobelia chinensis, transcriptome analysis was used to expl... Show More

    Abstract: Rabies is a highly fatal, viral, zoonotic disease caused by a Lyssa virus. It is acquired through the bite of an infected animal, mostly dogs. Estimated annual global human mortalities from rabies is 61,000, over 99% of which are from developing countries where about US$583.5 million is spent on its control. Rabies is enzootic in Ghana. Vaccinating... Show More
