  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

  2. 2. Insights into the processes preceding the onset of rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Linda Johansson; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatoid arthritis; pre-symptomatic individuals; autoantibodies; anti-citrullinated protein peptides antibodies; Epstein-barr virus; neutrophil extracellular traps; periodontitis; Porphyromonas gingivalis; receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand; reumatologi; rheumatology;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by the production of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) in the majority of all patients and a persistent inflammation in the synovial tissue leading to joint destruction. The aetiology of RA remains to a large extent unknown but is believed to be a complex interplay between genetic, environmental and stochastic factors. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    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

  4. 4. Investigations of Porphyromonas gingivalis as a possible trigger of autoimmunity in the development of rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Nastya Kharlamova; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a severe autoimmune disease affecting 0.5-1% worldwide. Patients suffer from pain, disability, chronic joint inflammation, comorbidities and increased mortality. Although, the aetiology of RA is largely unknown, both genes and environment have been shown to contribute. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the origin of ACPA : exploring the role of P.gingivalis in the development of rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Natalia Sherina; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by chronic synovial inflammation, joint destruction, and the presence of anti-citrullinated protein autoantibodies (ACPA) in a majority of patients. Accumulating evidence suggests that ACPA play an important role in RA pathogenesis. READ MORE
