medwireNews
Scientists have detected significant differences in the cytokine and chemokine make up of gingival crevicular fluid taken from chronic periodontitis patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes and those without. "[U]ncontrolled type 2 [diabetes] modulated the local levels of several cyto/chemokines at healthy and diseased sites in favour of a proinflammatory profile," report Poliana Duarte (Guarulhos University, São Paulo, Brazil) and co-workers in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology. "These findings may partially explain the greater susceptibility of diabetic subjects to periodontal breakdown."

Tax talks in Congress
American Dental Association
The business of dentistry has changed since the profession's five-year policy standoff with the Internal Revenue Service over dentists' use of the cash-based accounting method for tax purposes. The IRS withdrew its challenge for tax year 2001 effectiveness, and the commissioner later said, "Lawyers at the Department of the Treasury were foiling our efforts by doggedly insisting on imposing a rule ... requiring the IRS to waste resources on such silly matters as how much gold dentists were using to fill teeth."

The Scientist
It has long been known that extremely dilute bleach baths — 0.005 percent — can be used as a successful accessory treatment for eczema, but until now, no one understood how it worked. Researchers from Stanford University have shown that hypochlorite — bleach's active ingredient — effectively blocks the function of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB), which activates genes involved in inflammation and aging. Their work was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
