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

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Sravya Sowdamini Nakka; Örebro universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Periodontitis; Porphyromonas gingivalis; anti-P. gingivalis antibodies; surface plasmon resonance; PLNC8 αβ; proliferation; growth factors.; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    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
