Conseil Scientifique du LOOF Recommandations concernant la l’amyloïdose rénale Mars 2007 Préambule : L'amyloïdose rénale est une maladie grave, assez rare, inéluctablement fatale, génétique mais dont le mode de transmission, à l'heure actuelle, est incomplètement connu. De ce fait, le gène muté n'étant pas encore – semble-t-il - isolé, un test diagnostic génétiqu

Background Reference: Regenerative Endodontics: A Review of Current Status and a Call for Action, Peter E. Murray, Franklin Garcia-Godoy, and Kenneth M. Hargreaves, J Endod, 2007 Background • Approximately $400 billion spent treating Americans suffering some type of tissue loss or end-stage organ o 20,000 organ transplants o 500,000 joint replacements o Millions of dental and oral craniofacial procedures • Where might regenerative procedures be beneficial? replacement of oral tissues affected by inherited trauma neoplastic or infectious diseases What is Regenerative Endodontics? • …biologically-based procedures designed to predictably replace damaged, diseased, or missing structures, including dentin and root structures as well as cells of the pulp-dentin complex, with live viable tissues, preferably of the same origin, that restore the normal physiologic functions of the pulp-dentin complex. o pulp-like tissue, ideally, the pulp-dentin complex o damaged coronal dentin, such as following a carious exposure o resorbed root, cervical or apical dentin What is Revascularization/Regeneration? Challenges in treating the incompletely developed root o Cleaning and shaping of blunderbuss canal is difficult o Necrotic debris in wide root canal is difficult to completely disinfect o Thin, fragile lateral dentinal walls can fracture during mechanical filing/obturation o Risk of extending material beyond apex o One Step Apexification o Revascularization/ How can bacteria be removed from the canal? • Triple antibiotic paste Banchs & Trope JOE, 2004 • Calcium hydroxide Chueh & Huang JOE, 2006 • Formocresol Shah & Logani JOE, 2008 • Sato T, Hoshino E, Uematsu H, Noda T.

Administration of Medicines Policy Aim: To ensure safe storage and administration of medication to pupils and staff by the nurses, house Storage All medications are kept in a locked cupboard in a room not normally accessible to pupils. In the Medical Centre medicines that require refrigeration are kept in a locked medicine fridge. In the boarding houses medicines that require refrige
