    Several multiple comparison procedures (MCPs) were compared for their rates of Type I error and for their ability to detect true pairwise differences among means when independence of observations assumption were not satisfied. Monte Carlo results showed that, if independence is not met, none of...

    Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a complex disease with multiple faces, one of them being its activity. At the moment, there are multiple-choice tools to assess the activity of the disease, no one gaining the complete status of "gold standard". In the evaluation of the disease activity...

    While much research has focused on local and systemic factors contributing to periodontal disease, little is known regarding mechanisms linking these factors. We have previously reported a systemic hyper-inflammatory response to bacterial endotoxin in localized aggressive periodontitis (LAP)....
