The advent of globalization has changed our perspectives radically. It presents increased understanding of world affairs, new challenges and exciting opportunities. The inequitable distribution and use of finite energy resources and global warming are just two examples of challenges that can only be addressed by concerted international collaboration. Globalization has become an increasingly important influence on dentistry and dental education. The International Federation for Dental Educators and Associations (IFDEA) welcomes the challenges it now faces as a player in a complex multifaceted global community. This report addresses the new circumstances in which IFDEA must operate, taking account of the recommendations made by other working groups. The report reviews the background and evolution of IFDEA and describes the extensive developments that have taken place in IFDEA over the past year with the introductions of a new Constitution and Bylaws overseen by a newly established Board of Directors. These were the consequence of a new mission, goals and objectives for IFDEA. An expanded organization is planned using as the primary instrument to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, programmes and expertise between colleagues and federated associations throughout the world, thereby promoting higher standards in oral health through education in low-, middle- and high-income countries of the world. Such aspirations are modified by the reality and enormity of poverty-related global ill health.

A project for improving primary health care in an underserved rural area of Osun State, Nigeria, involved the creation of a partnership between the local government, the community and a medical college. Joint administrative and technical committees were established, and community mobilization was fostered. The evidence so far indicates that partnership designs can accelerate the development of primary health care in an affordable manner.

Background: Antiretroviral pharmacokinetics is characterised by broad variability influenced by numerous factors affecting absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination. Recently, a relative genetic contribution (rGC) of 0.904 (0.64 – 0.97) was reported for nevirapine (NVP) AUC0-6h (Micheli et al, Pharmacogenet Genomics, 2013). The aim of this study was to assess the Cmin rGC for a panel of antiretroviral drugs to rank agents according to the degree to which heritability influences their pharmacokinetics.

Methods: Patients from the Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Registries of the University of Turin and the University of Liverpool were included in the study. Inclusion criteria for both cohorts were as follows: receiving boosted lopinavir (LPV/r, 300/100 mg twice daily), boosted atazanavir (ATV/r 300/100 mg once daily), unboosted ATV (ATV, 400mg once daily), efavirenz (EFV, 600 mg once daily), NVP (400 mg once daily) or raltegravir (RAL, 400 mg twice daily), age>18 years, not receiving drugs known to contribute to drug-drug interactions. Plasma drug concentrations were determined using validated HPLC or LC-MS/MS methods. Intrapatient (SDw) and interpatient (SDb) variability were measured in patients with plasma concentrations available from more than one occasion. The rGC was calculated using the following equation: 1-(1/F) where F= SDb2/SDw. Statistical significance for genetic contribution was calculated using F-test, α = 0.05.

Results: A total of 211 patients were included in the study, 37 receiving LPV/r, 24 receiving ATV/r, 24 receiving ATV, 82 receiving EFV, 20 receiving NVP and 24 receiving RAL. SDw and SDb were 38% and 43% for LPV/r (n = 37), 49% and 50% for ATV/r (n = 24), 54% and 104% for ATV (n = 24), 33% and 60% for EFV (n = 82), 19% and 44% for NVP (n = 20), and 81% and 95% for RAL (n = 24), respectively. Mean with 95% CI rGC was calculated to be 0.35 (0.06-0.55) for LPV/r, 0.15 (0-0.6) for ATV/r, 0.55 (0.35 – 0.7) for ATV, 0.78 (0.68 – 0.85) for EFV, 0.82 (0.62-0.91) for NVP and 0.08 (0-0.56) for RAL (Figure). Genetic contribution was statistically significant (p<0.05) for ATV, EFV and NVP.

Discussion: The rank order for genetic contribution to variability in Cmin for the study drugs was NVP > EFV > ATV > LPV/r > ATV/r > RAL indicating class specific differences exist. Interestingly, these data indicate that ritonavir reduces the genetic contribution to variability in ATV Cmin presumably through inhibition of gene products such as CYP3A4 and ABCB1. Drugs with higher rGC scores may represent better candidates for pharmacogenetic studies.

Daromosu, H, Morgan R, Adewara B.  2022.  Assessment of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in Nigerian Adults Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography, 2022/08/31. 30:63-68. Abstract

Objective: To measure the circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in normal eyes of Nigerian adults using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Materials and methods: This was a cross-sectional study of normal eyes of Nigerian adults between July and September 2016 at the eye clinic of a tertiary hospital in Nigeria. Sociodemographic data, clinical history, and examination findings were obtained. Dipstick urinalysis and blood pressure measurements were performed. Circumpapillary RNFL thickness was measured with the Topcon 3D OCT-1 Maestro version 8.30 (Topcon Medical Systems, Inc., Oakland, NJ, USA), using the 3D optic nerve head analysis. Data were analyzed using the International Business Machine (IBM) Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS)Statistics, version 25.0 (IBM Corp., Armonk, NY, USA) and the level of significance was set at P < 0.05. Results: The study included 120participants (240 eyes) with an age range of 18 to 53 years and a mean age of 34.06 ± 7.64 years. There were 59 (49.17%) males and 61(50.83%) females. The average RNFL thickness in the right and left eyes was 112.26 ± 9.6 and 110.53 ± 9.14 mm, respectively. The average RNFL thickness for the Igbo ethnic group was 117.5 ± 7.69 and 115.04 ± 7.18 mm in the right and left eyes, respectively. The mean RNFL thickness for the inferior, superior, nasal, and temporal quadrants was 148.92 ± 15.77, 142.59 ± 16.48, 85.3 ± 15.39, and 71.89 ± 9.35 mm in the right eyes and 149.28 ± 16.03, 141.69 ± 13.33, 81.82 ± 13.59, and 68.8 ± 10.17 mm in the left eyes, respectively. Conclusion: This study showed the normal circumpapillary RNFL thickness values in Nigerian adults using SD-OCT. There were variations based on ethnicity that suggest it may be important to use ethnic-specific benchmarks when interpreting OCT results for the management of glaucoma.


This paper evaluated the use and application of probability analysis in the assessment of construction risk. It has been a usual practice to estimate a single-price value for the cost of a project and a certain percentage allowance to cater for risk. A more realistic approach is to adopt the policy that the single point forecast is the most likely price with a range between the lowest price and the highest price. To demonstrate this, a typical project was used as a case study. The contract sum together with its breakdown into respective trade variables were collected. The data collected were analysed using probability analysis. The analysis and result presented provides guide in arriving at this range of values. It is concluded that the successful application of this technique into the estimation of construction project's cost will help in the management of construction risk. Introduction All human endeavours involve risk. The success or failure of any venture depends on how we deal with it. Construction industry is not an exception. This industry has had poor reputation for coping with risk with many projects failing to meet deadlines and cost targets. The participants, public and others have suffered as a result (Thompson et ai, 1992). Sources of risk can be in terms of payment, security deposit and retention, time of commencement and completion, variation, delay and cost of delay and liquidated damages. Size can be one of the major causes of risk; so. can changes in political or commercial planning. Other factors carrying risk with them include the complexity of the project, location, speed of construction and familiarity with the type of procurement system. These risks need to be properly assessed, analysed and managed for efficient operation of the industry. Norris et at (1992) and Thompson et at (1992) identified the most useful and main techniques of risk analysis tc be sensitivity and probability analyses. Chapman (1990), rated probability analysis over sensitivity analysis in that the former overcomes many of the limitations of the latter by specifying a probability distribution for each risk and then considering the effect of the risks in combination. This paper describes the concepts of probability analysis and its application in the management of construction risk. This is Illustrated by a case study.
