    Abstract : Periodontitis is one of the most common adult infections. Duing bacteremia in healthy individuals or patients with chronic periodontitis, a number of oral bacteria such as Porphyromonas gingivalis encounter inflammatory cells in the blood eg. platelets, neutrophils and monocytes.

    Abstract : Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease caused by exaggerated host immune responses to dysregulated microbiota in dental biofilms leading to degradation of tissues and alveolar bone loss. Porphyromonas gingivalis is a major periodontal pathogen and expresses several potent virulence factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of novel tools for prevention and diagnosis of Porphyromonas gingivalis infection and periodontitis

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Abstract : Periodontitis is a chronic infectious disease causing inflammation and destruction of tooth-supporting structures eventually leading to tooth loss. Periodontitis is induced by different subgingival microorganisms in combination with an excessive and dysregulated immune-inflammatory response against this microbial challenge. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of platelet thrombin receptors PAR1 and PAR4 in health and disease

    Abstract : Blood cells are continuously flowing in our systems maintaining haemostasis in the arteries and veins. If a vessel is damaged, the smallest cell fragments in the blood (platelets) are directed to cover the wound and plug the leakage to prevent blood loss. Most of the time platelets stop the blood leak without any difficulties. READ MORE
