Studies assessing the role of ICTP levels in GCF or peri-implant crevicular fluid as a diagnostic marker of
periodontal disease activity have reported promising results so far (Oringer et al. 1998,
2002). ICTP was suggested to predict future bone loss, to correlate with clinical parameters
and putative periodontal pathogens and also to reduce following periodontal therapy
Our empirical analysis uses two different data sources: the RobertWood Johnson Foundation’s 1997
Employer Health Insurance Survey (EHIS) and MEDSTAT MarketScan commercially insured health
claims and eligibility information for 1998–1999. We ﬁrst use the EHIS data to examine turnover
patterns and their relationship to ﬁrm and employee characteristics. The EHIS data reveal that small
ﬁrms are very heterogeneous; the heterogeneity concerns workers’ turnover rates, besides workers’ age
distribution and other health-related demographic variables.
Osteoporosis is a complex systemic skeletal disease
that leads to an increased risk of fracture, usually of the
vertebra, hip, wrist and humerus. The disorder is
characterized by reduced bone mineral density (BMD),
disrupted bone microarchitecture and alterations in the
amount and variety of proteins in bone.
During the last years a better understanding of the
cellular mechanisms operating in bone remodeling,
both for healthy and affected bones, was gained .
The cessation of ovarian function at the menopause is associated with a phase of rapid bone
loss which probably lasts from 5 to 10 years (Genant et al, 1982; Recker et al, 2000). This
rapid bone loss results from an increase in bone turnover in association with a negative
remodelling imbalance (Compston, 2001); whilst reduced bone formation undoubtedly
contributes to the latter, there is evidence that increased osteoclastic activity also plays a
role, particularly in the earlier stages of menopausal bone loss (Compston et al, 1995).
Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency: Treatment Management of PK deficiency is mainly supportive. In view of the marked increase in red cell turnover, oral folic acid supplements should be given constantly. Blood transfusion should be used as necessary, and iron chelation may have to be added if the blood transfusion requirement is high enough to cause iron overload. In these patients, who have more severe disease, splenectomy may be beneficial.
