    Abstract : Porphyromonas gingivalis is a gram-negative, rod-shaped, and anaerobic bacterium that is involved in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. P. gingivalis produces a variety of virulence factors including gingipains and fimbriae. READ MORE

  2. 2. Periodontitis and coronary artery disease Studies on the association between periodontitis and coronary artery disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Carin Starkhammar Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Periodontitis and coronary artery disease (CAD) are highly prevalent in Sweden’s population; both diseases have complicated pathogeneses and clinical manifestations due to immune-system triggered inflammation. Research in recent years reported that inflammation is a significant active participant in many chronic diseases. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    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

  4. 4. Novel Insights into Inflammatory Disturbed Bone Remodelling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Abstract : Bone is a dynamic tissue that is continuously remodelled, a process that requires equal amounts of osteoclastic bone resorption and osteoblastic bone formation. Inflammation may disturb the equilibrium and result in local and/or systemic bone loss. Negative bone mass balance occurs in several chronic inflammatory diseases, e.g. READ MORE
