Project Proposal


Title: PARafunctional oral Activities INvestigation: Early Signs & InteractionS (PARAINESIS)

Type Details: The Dental School of the University of Athens, Greece (NKUA-Dental), is planning to submit its PAR.A.IN.E.S.I.S. Research Project proposal within the framework of the forthcoming FP7 Health 2012 call.

PARAINESIS Project aims at investigating interactions among Parafuncional Oral Activities (POAs), such as bruxism, etc., and diverse entities, such as cardiovascular or gastrointestinal anomalies. In effect, the project will investigate the extent to which even mild POAs may constitute indication or early symptoms for heavier, even life-threatening conditions, such as arrhythmias, high blood pressure or gastrointestinal conditions ranging from irritable bowel to cancer.

Project consortium will comprise Dentists, Pathologists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists and intestinal doctors. Clinical facilities of Dental Schools and University-based hospitals will be used for the Clinical trials that will test the treatment modalities and/or devices used for the diagnosis and treatment of participating patients.
