Bad oral hygiene contributes to an increased risk of oral cancer.
Now, a new study in the journal Science suggests that the HIF may be the reason why.
It’s important to understand the basics of HIF to understand why we need to pay attention to this new finding.
HIF stands for Hormone-Induced Follicle-Enlargement, and it is a complex hormonal response that helps the body to increase the number of progesterone receptors.
“We are actually seeing a rise in this HIF,” said study author Shigeo Takahashi, a professor of genomics at the University of Washington and a senior author of the paper.
The findings suggest that HIF could be linked to oral cancers because it triggers an increased release of progestin from the ovaries.
HIF is an indicator of the risk of developing oral cancer, so understanding the Hif may be crucial for patients who have oral cancer as well as those who are at increased risk.
Takahashi’s lab has shown that oral hygiene factors like bad oral habits and the presence of oral disease make oral health more likely to be associated with a higher risk of a new oral cancer diagnosis.
This new study adds to a growing body of research linking oral health to oral health outcomes.
Studies from other labs have shown that bad oral habit is linked to a lower risk of getting oral cancer; however, that’s not always the case.
A 2012 study found that people who had high levels of inflammation in their mouth were more likely than people with a normal oral health history to develop oral cancer after a diagnosis.
The researchers theorized that people with inflammatory bowel disease and certain inflammatory disorders like psoriasis and psorinitis, which can be exacerbated by eating too much salt, might be more susceptible to the risk.
The HIF study has important implications for people who suffer from oral cancer because it shows that Hif is a factor that could affect oral health and oral cancer in addition to the progesterin receptors.
The researchers also found that the presence or absence of oral inflammation was related to HIF.
What this means is that we need better ways to diagnose oral health problems like oral cancer and identify oral health factors that could help patients avoid them.
Researchers from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and the University in Pennsylvania have found that oral inflammation can be the main reason why oral cancer may be difficult to diagnose.
They used data from the National Cancer Institute to identify the factors that were associated with oral inflammation, and those factors were associated to a higher rate of oral cancers.
While the study was small, it’s promising for people with oral health conditions like oral pain or gum disease, and this research is likely to help them improve their oral health.HIF might be especially important in people with an inflammatory bowel disorder, since it’s linked to the development of ulcers and the subsequent increase in production of prostaglandins that are the cause of ulcerative colitis.
There’s also research that suggests that HIG could be associated to oral hygiene.
Researchers at the Ohio State University and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have found an association between HIF and a lower rate of ulctama and ulcer, both of which are risk factors for ulcer.
People with ulcer should also consider oral hygiene in determining whether they should consider surgery or a colonoscopy.
Other research is showing that HIP is linked with oral cancer overall, but the findings are still controversial.
Another important piece of research is the development and application of new oral hygiene technologies, like the use of new types of bio-absorbers and the development the new bio-immuno-gel.
Researchers have also found new ways to improve oral hygiene by improving the way our oral hygiene is applied.
As part of the research for this study, Takahashashi and his colleagues used DNA sequencing to find the genes that are associated with HIF in saliva, blood, and breast tissue.
It’s also important to note that HIR is not a single gene.
It’s an important piece to understanding how oral hygiene interacts with oral disease and how oral health might contribute to oral disease risk.
“This study is the first step in understanding the impact of HIR on oral health,” Takahas said.
