New article about design and progress of oral health examinations in Tohoku Medical Megabank Project was published in the Tohoku Journal of Experimental Medicine.
In order to assess the long-term impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake on the oral health of disaster victims and to evaluate gene-environmental interactions in the development of major oral diseases and oral-systemic associations, the oral part of two large-scale genome cohort studies by the Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization (ToMMo) has been conducted. These extensive cross-sectional studies on oral condition provide a unique and important platform for future studies on oral health and diseases that elicit through interactions with systemic diseases, lifestyles, life events and genetic backgrounds, and contributes to researches clarifying the long-term effects of disasters on oral health.
Please take a look at the article for more details.
