    Abstract : Background: The uterine cervix has the ability to be transformed from being a rigid organ in non-pregnant women to become a loose structure that dilates and allows passage of the foetus at parturition. This process, cervical ripening, has been described similar to an inflammatory reaction of the extracellular matrix involving activation of inflammatory cytokines, matrix metalloproteinases and breakdown of the collagen framework.

  2. 2. Dentine caries : acid tolerant microorganisms and aspects on collagen degradation

    Author : Anders Hedenbjörk Lager; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dental Caries; Collagen; Cariogenic Agents;

    Abstract : Karies är en stor folksjukdom, trots att den både kan förebyggas och behandlas effektivt. Om man inte ingriper preventivt och låter det naturliga förloppet råda, kommer kariesangreppet till slut att bryta igenom emaljen och involvera även den underliggande dentinvävnaden. READ MORE

    Abstract : Birgitta Söder (1998). Studies on plaque distribution and gingival crevicularfluid after non-surgical treatment in smokers and non-smokers with periodontal diseases. Thesis, Karolinska Institutet. Dental plaque plays a key role in the complex process by which periodontal diseases are initiated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tobacco smoking, vascular reaction and neutrophil activity in periodontal health and disease

    Author : Lena Persson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Tobacco smoking has considerable negative effects on periodontal health. The mechanisms behind these effects may be related to the inflammatory response. In this thesis, the main aim was to study the influence of tobacco smoking on the inflammatory response in periodontal health and disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Salivary biomarkers : diagnostic potential in oral and systemic diseases in epidemiological surveys

    Author : Nilminie Rathnayake; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Interleukin-1β; -6 and -8;

    Abstract : Human saliva is a fluid with many biological functions, and essential for the maintenance of oral health. Several studies report local and systemic biomarkers appearing in saliva, including electrolytes, blood products, enzymes and tissue destruction molecules, inflammatory markers as well as proteins putatively associated with different diseases.
