FEATURED RESEARCH

MICRO- ORGANISMS IN RECURRENT APHTHOUS STOMATITIS

Recurrent aphthous stomatitis is an inflammatory disease of oral mucosa with unknown etiology. Many factors contribute in the pathogenesis of aphthae including stress, trauma, foods, allergy, hormonal and microbial factors. It has been observed by Hoover CI (1986) that microorganisms are the causative factor in the pathogenesis of aphthous ulcer. This study was conducted with the aim to observe presence or absence of gram positive and gram negative microorganism in the smears of the lesions compared with the scraping of controls.

Development of community oriented curriculum (code) for dental colleges in Pakistan. 

Medical education is the foundation for establishment of a good health care system. It has undergone major transformation along with the change in concepts of health and disease. The important driving factors for this transformation in medical education are the rising costs and inequities in health care. Production of disease oriented physicians relying on high-tech clinical settings had been attributed to the traditional technology-based western model of medical education.
