Dr. Avi Weisfogel: Trailblazer


Sleep apnea can remain undiagnosed for years. In fact, 90% of patients remain undiagnosed. The condition has been linked to other incredibly severe and even fatal conditions like diabetes. For this reason, there has been an emergence of dental sleep medicine which is a practice that focuses on the use of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep disordered breathing like snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. A custom-fit oral appliance is prescribed to keep the airway from collapsing by supporting the jaw. This treatment is effective, but some patients are unable to adhere to it. Thus, integration of medical and dental professions is of utmost importance in development of an efficient care model.

The grand jury protected Joe Arpaio and issued a subpoena, which demanded that the New Times should reveal the identities of people who read stories about the sheriff on its website. Arpaio worked with his deputies in oppressing immigrants and anyone who fought for their rights. Michael and Jim struggled to defend and advocate for their Fifth Amendment rights for many years during their career.

The Effects of E-cigarettes on the Oncotarget Journal


Although previous studies concluded that the chemicals found in e-cigarette were responsible for damaging gums and teeth, this recent study suggests that the burnt vapors cause the release of inflammatory proteins which in return cause damage that may lead to oral diseases. Also, the scientists argued that the vapors are dangerous to the lungs and the environment. By use of a 3D human who doesn’t smoke, the scientists demonstrated how the e-cigarette vapors damage the mouth cells. Some flavorings are even worse than others in regards to the extent of damage they can cause to the cells in the mouth. Download output styles at Endnote.com.

Most e-cigarettes contain a battery, a heating device, and a cartridge for holding nicotine and the flavoring chemicals. When the battery-powered device is heated, it vaporizes the liquid to produce aerosol vapors that the user inhales. The ever-growing perception that e-cigarettes are a healthier alternative to conventional cigarette smoking has made the former even popular in the recent past. However, a University of Rochester school of Medicine study has revealed otherwise. The study that was led by Irfan Rahman, Ph.D. professor of Environmental Medicine at the URMC and published in Oncotarget was the first to show that e-cigs affect overall oral health on cellular and molecular levels.

Fawad Javed, a post-doctoral student who was part of the study, further argued that the nicotine ingredients found in the e-cigarette were a major causative agent of gum diseases. The researchers urged all e-cigarette manufacturers to reveal all the chemicals they use in manufacturing their e-cigarette juices so that consumers can make informed decisions on whether to use their products or not.

Under the leadership of Mikhail Blagosklonny, the Editor in Chief at Oncotarget and an experienced oncologist, together with other researchers from other areas beyond oncology, scientists can now freely contribute to the progress of science. Exceptional discoveries like the effects of e-cigarette are being shared quickly so as to increase the impact of research by analyzing various insightful reviews.
