  1. 1. Barnacle Bioadhesive Bonding Formation, Strength and Control

    Author : Mattias Berglin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : barnacle adhesive plaque; poly dimethylsiloxane ; fouling release coatings; bioadhesion; marine biofouling;

    Abstract : The current technology for keeping ship hulls free of marine biofouling requires the use of toxic compounds such as copper, organic biocides and tributyl tin (TBT). The compounds that are released have been shown to have negative effects on non-target organisms, and a worldwide ban of TBT is currently being introduced. READ MORE

  2. 2. Salvadora persica (MISWAK) : An effective way of killing oral pathogens

    Author : Abier Hamed Sofrata; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Miswak; Salvadora persica; chewing stick; traditional medicine; gingivitis; periodontitis; dental plaque; plaque pH; salivary flow; acid production; microelectrodes; oral hygiene; subgingival microbiota; antibacterial agent; isothiocyanate; chromatography; Porphyromonas gingivalis; Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans;

    Abstract : Mechanical removal of dental plaque is regarded as an effective means of controlling the progression of dental caries and periodontal disease. The habitual use of chewing sticks (Miswak) as an oral hygiene method is still wildly spread throughout parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agents in experimental gingivitis

    Author : Satoshi Sekino; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The main objectives of the present series of experiment was to evaluate i) the microbial changes that occurred in plaque during de novo plaque formation, ii) the influence of the number of bacteria in saliva on de novo plaque formation, iii) the effect of a chlorhexidine regimen on the recolonization of bacterial species in plaque and saliva, iv) the effect of systemic administration of ibuprofen on gingivitis development and de novo plaque formation and v) the effect of a mouthrinse containing Listerine® on gingivitis development and de novo plaque formation.Subjects with no signs of periodontal disease were recruited.

  4. 4. On salivary interactions with the antiplaque agents delmopinol and chlorhexidine : An experimental in vitro study

    Author : Liana Bastos Treitas-Fernandes; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Saliv; Klorhexidin; Salivproteiner; Plack;

    Abstract : Several chemical agents have been used to aid in the removal of dental plaque and to prevent or decrease the occurrence of oral diseases, Defining the interactions of chemical agents and saliva contributes to a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in chemical plaque control. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the salivary interactions between two antiplaque agents and saliva and microorganisms at defined solid/liquid and air liquid interfaces. READ MORE

  5. 5. Porphyrins and phototherapy of oral bacteria

    Author : Nadja Bjurshammar; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In the mid-1990s researchers became interesting in blue light-based therapies using light- emitting diodes (LED) light. Blue light therapy has been successfully used in treatment of acne, as well as shown wound healing effects. It has also shown significant antibacterial effects, especially on black-pigmented bacteria. READ MORE
