On Demand WebinarAnother pandemic: Diabetes! Why should the dental team bother?
Corinna Bruckmann MD, MSc

On Demand WebinarInflammation and type 2 diabetes: pathogenesis and current treatment protocols
Marc Y. Donath MD
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.

Cancer treatment is by its very nature highly cytotoxic. In this way, cells and tissues are affected in different ways and patients may experience different reactions and adverse effects.

On Demand WebinarOral cancer: Early detection, diagnosis and treatment complications
Otilija Kutanovaitė MD
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.
