Determination of the Effect of Dental Anxiety on Pain Perception during Scaling in a Group of Nigerian Patients
Background: This study aimed to determine patients’ perception of pain during scaling and determine its relationship with their level of dental anxiety. It also evaluated differences in the pain perception between genders and its relationship with age. Materials and Methods: The cross-sectional study was conducted at the Periodontology Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. Supra-gingival scaling was performed on the six mandibular anterior teeth of 94 consenting participants. The Visual Analog Scale (VAS) was used to record the patient's pain level while the Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS) was used to measure dental anxiety. Gender and age differences between Anxiety Scores and VAS was compared using Student’s unpaired t-test and ANOVA respectively. P-value < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results: Females had higher overall Mean MDAS scores (12.87±4.79). Similarly, respondents aged 18-40years had higher Mean MDAS scores (12.00±4.65) than those aged 41-85years even though the association was not significant. Females also had higher OHI-S scores (2.57±1.22), Bleeding Index scores (48.57±39.38), Gingival Index (1.57±0.58) scores than males though the association was not significant. In addition, females had higher mean VAS scores (31.44±23.44) than males and those aged 18-40 years had higher mean VAS scores (31.44±23.44) than those aged 41-85 years though the association was not significant. Conclusion: Scaling and polishing was associated with higher pain and anxiety levels among females and younger respondents while patients with worse oral hygiene and gingival inflammation experienced more discomfort during the procedure. The proportion of patients that experienced severe pain increased with increased dental anxiety but the association was not significant. It is recommended that patients attending for scaling and polishing are screened with appropriate tools like MDAS while awaiting the procedure.

Systemic Scleroderma Revealed by Cardiac Tamponade: A Case Report
In systemic scleroderma, pericardial involvement is usually silent and benign. Symptomatic pericarditis is rare and cardiac tamponade even more so. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman presenting with cardiac tamponade and whose etiologic investigation concluded to a final diagnosis of limited cutaneous systemic scleroderma. Clinicians should be wary of this diagnosis when dealing with acute-onset pericarditis.

The sponge Suberites carnosuswas collected during low tides from West Coast of Mumbai. Crude extract was obtained by taking 10 gram of sponge samples in10 ml of methanol. In the present investigation we found the crude protein contents in Suberites carnosus as 0.096 mg/mL. The Neuromodulatory Na (+)-K+ ATPase activity and AChE on Sprague dawley rat brain and chicken brain extract may contribute to the pathogenesis of metabolic complications of the central nervous system, and that the undetectable enzyme activity in chicken brain convulsing chicken brain may result from considerable damage or necrosis of brain tissue during seizures. In A Ch E our study is evident that both the sponge extract showed enzyme inhibitor activity at certain concentrations. In hemolytic activity showed potent toxin which is responsible for hemagglutination. Hemagglutination activity is generated by the presence of protein and the protein found in sponges which usually show hemmaglutination activity that might be because of presence of lectin which showed hemolytic activity. In CAM study showed that methanolic extract has strong antiangiogenic activity. The protein bands showed lectins have variety of effects on cells, such as agglutination, mitogenic stimulation, redistribution of cell surface components, modifying the activity of membrane enzymes, inhibition of bacterial and fungal growth, cell aggregation, toxicity, immunomodulation.

Different infections in blood leads to infectious diseases that are caused by viruses, bacteria and parasites. Microorganisms are used in the production of antibiotics, vaccines, steroids, etc. The advantages and limitation of molecular techniques including real-time polymerase chain reaction, genome sequencing, molecular typing, microarrays, PCR and multiplexing required advancements at molecular level. Nucleic acid-based tests are used in diagnosing infectious diseases for isolating nucleic acids from through gel electrophoresis, and nucleic acid hybridizationsn techniques to analyze DNA or RNA. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an in situ DNA replication process that allows for the exponential amplification of target DNA in the presence of synthetic oligonucleotide primers. The advances in chemistry that made real-time PCR possible were also significant, and modifications of these chemical reactions continue today. In situ hybridization has been introduced into the clinical microbiology laboratory and should prove to be a useful technology for the rapid characterization of bacteria and fungi in positive blood culture samples. Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) is an unambiguous, portable and nucleotide-based technique for typing bacteria using the sequences of internal fragments of (usually) seven house-keeping genes. Microorganisms are used in the production of antibiotics, vaccines, steroids.
