12 Nov 2020, 06:00 PM Berlin

Inflammation and type 2 diabetes: pathogenesis and current treatment protocols

10 Nov 2020, 06:00 PM Berlin

In patients with type 2 diabetes an inflammatory process is present. This inflammation is due to a pathological activation of the innate immune system, caused by metabolic stress and is partly governed by IL-1 signaling. We identified the role of IL-1β and insulin in the regulation of metabolism and immunity in response to food intake. Yet, as it becomes chronic, activation of auto-inflammatory processes may then become deleterious.

The mouth is a site often affected in treatment and therefore the dentist should be involved in preventing and treating possible complications, before, during and after the end of cancer treatment.

Oral cancer: Early detection, diagnosis and treatment complications

400,000 to 500,000 new cases world wide of oral cancer are diagnosed and causes about 150,000 deaths per year. More than 60 percent of the patients are diagnosed with late stage (III or IV stage) disease, therefore, 5-year overall survival rate is as low as 50 percent. Stage I-II may have excellent cure rates with minor surgery and few functional sequelae, highlighting the necessity for early diagnosis and heightened awareness in dentists.
