  1. 1. Gene expression in buccal keratinocytes with emphasis on carbonyl metabolism

    Author : Claudia A Staab; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The inner lining of the cheek, the buccal mucosa, is a target for air-borne, dietary and tobacco usage-derived carcinogens, but also interesting from a drug delivery point of view. Cancer arising in the buccal epithelium, buccal squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC), often diagnosed at a late disease stage, is highly aggressive and recurrent, emphasizing the need for novel approaches in diagnosis and therapy.

  2. 2. Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis - A study, with emphasis on host genetics, oral microbiota composition, and immunoregulatory networks

    Author : Maria Bankvall; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Aphthous stomatitis; Oral mucosa; Oral medicine; Genome-wide association study; Genetic linkage; Association; Genetic polymorphism; Microbiota; Restriction fragment length polymorphism; Antigen-presenting cell; T-lymphocyte; Lymph node; Flow cytometry;

    Abstract : Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is one of the most common oral mucosal lesions. The aetiology is unknown and currently there is no consensus regarding suitable treatment regimens. READ MORE

  3. 3. Invariant T cell subsets in immune defense of oral mucosa and skin

    Author : Michał J. Sobkowiak; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Innate-like T lymphocytes such as mucosa-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells and invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells recognize antigens presented by MR1 and CD1d molecules, respectively. As MR1 presents microbial riboflavin metabolite antigens, and CD1d presents endogenous or microbial glycolipid antigens, MAIT cells and iNKT cells survey the non-protein fraction of the potential antigenic universe.

  4. 4. p63 – from expression to function : studies of normal oral mucosa and squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck

    Author : Niklas Thurfjell; Karin Nylander; Phillip Coates; Göran Roos; Luisa Guerrini; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; p63; SCCHN; p53; BRCA1; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : The human p63 gene discovered in 1997 encodes a series of protein isoforms that differ in their N- and/or C-terminal sequences. These isoforms have widely differing properties in promoting or repressing p53-related functions such as growth arrest and apoptosis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Soft tissue integration to dental implants

    Author : Maria Welander; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; connective tissue; dental implants; epithelium; gold alloy; histology; peri-implant mucosa; subcrestal placement; titanium; zirconia;

    Abstract : Soft tissue integration is a prerequisite for implant success. The role of the soft tissue barrier at implants is to provide an effective seal that protects the underlying bone and prevents access for microorganisms and their products. READ MORE
