A case study by Dr Devi Charan Shetty

According to latest research, Odontology is the branch of science which has a great scope in the future and as the new technologies and experiments are done, this field is getting more and more advance. Odontology is the scientific study related to teeth and teeth related problems. There are lots of experiments are going on in the field of medical science and and there are lots of brilliant scientists who are giving their contribution towards medical science. Dr. Devi Charan Shetty is also one of them who are principal at I.T.S Center for Dental Studies & Research, Murad Nagar, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, India and he published a research paper on Classifying odontogenic keratocysts as benign cystic neoplasms: a molecular insight into its aggressiveness.
The current study was organized with the aim to analyze the expression of p53 in Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC) and Ameloblastoma to match with the aggressiveness of these lesions. Dr Shetty done a marvelous on this as this reflects his dedication and efforts towards his work. He performed the Immunohistochemical (IHC) staining using anti-p53 antibody in eighteen cases each of OKC and ameloblastoma. The result of the experiment was that p53 positivity was seen in all the cases of OKCs and the total p53 count was higher in ameloblastoma as compared to OKC but intensely stained p53 cell count showed no statistically significant difference between the two lesions. The conclusion of his research work was that the high p53 expression in OKC when compared with ameloblastoma, acknowledges OKC as an aggressive lesions and hence a more aggressive treatment modality is recommended. We hope that he will continue doing his research work like this.
His work always motivates and encourages the students to go for the research field and his work is for betterment of the society. Dr. DC Shetty always guide future generations by his outstanding conferences and research work. He has recently organized an IDA National Dental Student Conference at the I.T.S. Centre for Dental Studies and Research, Murad Nagar, Ghaziabad from 15-16 march 2016 and more than 2500 delegates from 25 states from all over the country and they all appreciated the event organized. The event was the great success and he shows his organizing skills in this 2 days event. He has done great job and hope he will continue doing this great work and motivate the future generations by his knowledge and contribution to the society.
