Background and aim: Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, with an overall 5-year survival of <5% mainly due to presence of advanced disease at time of diagnosis. Therefore development of valid biomarkers to diagnose pancreatic cancer in early stages is an urgent need. This study concerned the sensitivity and specificity of serum ICAM 1 versus CA 19-9 in differentiation between pancreatic cancer and healthy subjects and acohort of patients with chronic pancreatitis with a focus on assessing validity in diagnosis of early stages of pancreatic cancer. Methods: A cohort of 50 patients with histologically diagnosed pancreatic tumors, 27 patients with chronic pancreatitis, and 35 healthy controls were enrolled. Serum samples for measurement of CA19-9 and I-CAM 1 were obtained from all groups and analyzed for significance regarding diagnosis and disease stage. Results: At a cut off value of (878.5 u/ml) I-CAM 1 had 82% and 82.26% sensitivity and specificity for differentiation between cancer and non-cancer cases, with higher sensitivity and specificity than CA19-9 at different cut offs (CA19-9 sensitivity and specificity ranged from 64-80% and 56.4 – 61.2% respectively). The AUC was 0.851 for I-CAM and 0.754 for CA19-9. Neither of the markers demonstrated significance for distinguishing between early and late cancer stages. Conclusion: ICAM 1 is a useful marker in differentiation between malignant and benign pancreatic conditions, and superior to CA19-9 in this regard. However, neither of the markers can be recommended for use in differentiation between early and late stage pancreatic cancers.

A systematic review and meta-analysis.", European journal of orthodontics, issue dec , 2015 Dec 28. Abstractelkordy2015.pdf

BACKGROUND: Recently, the use of skeletal anchors in conjunction with fixed functional appliances (FFAs) has been advocated to enhance skeletal changes and reduce proclination of the lower incisors.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the skeletal and dento-alveolar effects of the use of FFAs with and without skeletal anchorage (miniscrews or miniplates).

SEARCH METHODS: Unrestricted electronic search of six databases and additional manual searches were performed up to July 2015.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: Randomized and prospective non-randomized controlled trials directly comparing the use of FFA with and without skeletal anchorage, and involving growing patients with Class II malocclusion.

DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Skeletal and dento-alveolar outcomes data were extracted in pre-defined sheets to collect study characteristics by two authors independently. After evaluating risk of bias, the standardized mean differences (SMDs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated with random-effects models. Subgrouping was pre-planned on the basis of the skeletal anchorage type used. Additional subgroup analysis was performed on the basis of the type of FFA used and the study design.

RESULTS: Seven studies were evaluated, and only five of which were included in the meta-analysis. The analysis included data from 157 Class II subjects (77 treated with FFA and skeletal anchorage, and 80 with FFA alone). Random-effects meta-analysis demonstrated no significant differences in the mandibular length and SNB angle changes [SMD = 1.98 (95% CI -0.11 to 4.07) and 1.20 (95% CI -0.37 to 2.77) respectively]. Significant differences were found between the inclination changes of lower and upper incisors [SMD = -1.43 (95% CI -2.59 to -0.27) and SMD = -1.04 (95% CI -1.57 to -0.51) respectively]. Subgroup differences were highly significant in most of the outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: The studies reviewed provide insufficient evidence to form a conclusion regarding the effects of the use of skeletal anchorage with FFA. The available weak evidence suggests that the use of skeletal anchorage with FFA has no superior skeletal effects but is able to reduce proclination of the lower incisors.

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this 2-arm parallel randomized controlled trial was to evaluate patient acceptance of the mini-implant anchored Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device (FFRD) (3M Unitek, Monrovia, Calif).

METHODS: The study included 32 skeletal Class II girls. The eligibility criteria included a deficient mandible, a horizontal or neutral growth pattern, an increased overjet, and a full set of erupted permanent teeth. After the leveling and alignment stage, FFRDs and mini-implants were inserted; they were removed after the teeth reached an edge-to-edge incisor relationship. The patients were afterward asked to fill out assessment questionnaires regarding their experience with the FFRD.

OUTCOMES: The primary outcome of this study was to assess patient acceptance of the appliance and satisfaction with the results. The secondary outcomes were interference with functional activities, noticeability by others, pain, swelling, gum problems caused by the appliance, and appliance breakage.

RANDOMIZATION: Computer random sequence generation was done using block sizes of 6 and 4. Allocation concealment was achieved with sequentially numbered opaque sealed envelopes.

BLINDING: Blinding of the clinicians and the patients to the intervention was impossible, but it was done for the outcome assessment and the statistician.

RESULTS: The 32 patients were randomly allocated in a 1:1 ratio into 2 groups: 16 patients (mean age, 13.25 ± 1.12 years) received the FFRD alone (FFRD group), and 16 patients (mean age, 13.07 ± 1.41 years) had mini-implants in conjunction with FFRDs (FMI group). No statistically significant differences were reported between the 2 groups regarding ease of appliance insertion, noticeability by others, pain, swelling, effects on eating and speech, and gum bleeding; 100% and 87.5% were satisfied with the results in the FFRD and FMI groups, respectively, with a ridit value of 0.57 (95% confidence interval, 0.43-0.71; P = 0.36). No serious harm was observed other than swelling of the cheeks, which occurred in 4 patients.

CONCLUSIONS: There were no significant differences between the patients' acceptance of the FFRD and the mini-implant anchored FFRD. They were highly satisfied with the results. Neither group reported significant functional limitations.

REGISTRATION: This trial was not registered.

PROTOCOL: The protocol was not published before trial commencement.

FUNDING: The study was self-funded by the authors.
