Disease relevance of Schools, Nursery

  • The protective effect produced by pidotimod was also confirmed by a series of recordings made over the five-month observation period, which showed a significant reduction in the number of days of fever, the severity of the signs and symptoms of acute episodes, use of antibiotics and antipyretic drugs and absence from school or nursery school [1].

Associations of Schools, Nursery with chemical compounds

  • Among these subjects, 243 children had received fluoride mouthrinse since 5 years of age at nursery schools, and comprised the "mouthrinse group." The remaining 171 children, the "no mouthrinse group," had not received fluoride mouthrinse [6].
  • A study of 525 3-4-year-old children in nursery schools and day-care centres was carried out to assess occlusal relationships and the presence of spacing or crowding of teeth [7].
  • The aim of the study was to investigate whether a supervised daily brushing at school with a fluoride toothpaste containing 1.2% sodium monofluorophosphate reduced caries incidence in a well-controlled group of nursery-school children with low caries prevalence [8].

Gene context of Schools, Nursery

  • The GSR orienting reflex has been successfully applied to the measurements of normal and disordered tactile sensation and perception in nursery-school children, college students, and brain-injured adults [9].
  • Samples were collected from Cork, Ireland (n=19) where the water is fluoridated to a concentration between 0.8 and 1.0 mg/l; Knowsley, UK, where the water fluoride concentration is <0.1 mg/l (n=22); and from children in Knowsley drinking milk containing 0.5 mg fluoride in nursery school each day (n=16) [10].
  • The Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR, Toitsukabu) vaccination coverage in the 43 children at the nursery school was 65.1% and it was 61.9% in the 21 children aged 4-5 years not attending the nursery school [11].
