Full-mouth scaling and root planing (FM-SRP) acts as a potent inflammatory stimulus immediately after treatment; however, systemic inflammation typically improves in the long term. The contribution of FM-SRP to systemic biological and acute-phase responses is largely unknown. The purpose of this prospective intervention study was to assess the systemic and local biological responses after FM-SRP.

To investigate the levels of systemic heparanase, inflammatory markers, and coagulation factor activities in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO).
Exposures to occupationally relevant ultrafine, zinc- and copper-containing welding fumes cause inflammatory responses involving systemic IL-6, C-reactive protein (CRP) and serum amyloid A (SAA), all ...
Lung resection surgery (LRS) is associated with systemic and pulmonary inflammation, which can affect postoperative outcomes. Activation of β-adrenergic receptors increases the expression of proinfla...
Adipokines are chemical mediators released from adipose tissue involved in regulation of appetite, insulin sensitivity, immune system and inflammatory responses. Adipokines contributes to low grade in...
Obesity, a risk factor for colorectal cancer, raises systemic levels of pro-inflammatory mediators. Whether increased levels also reside in the colons of obese individuals, and are accompanied by pro-...
Omega-3 fatty acids have been considered anti-inflammatory lipids based on data from epidemiological studies of Greenland Eskimos whose diet is rich in fish, sources of polyunsaturated fat...
One-lung ventilation; organ protection; volatile anesthetics One-lung ventilation has become a common procedure for thoracoscopic surgery. Two hypothesis will be tested in this study: ...
The main purpose of this Phase 2 double blind, placebo controlled crossover clinical study is to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of CXA-10 in obese adult asthmatics. Obesity induces a ...
The present pilot randomized controlled clinical trial will test the hypothesis that in patients with ARDS, fixing ventilator settings to the conventional protective ventilatory strategy (...
The investigators will address the hypothesis that portal hypertension is mediated in part by bacterial or endotoxin translocation and the production of inflammatory mediators (tumor necro...
A condition characterized by the presence of ENDOTOXINS in the blood. On lysis, the outer cell wall of gram-negative bacteria enters the systemic circulation and initiates a pathophysiologic cascade of pro-inflammatory mediators.
Agents that are used to treat allergic reactions. Most of these drugs act by preventing the release of inflammatory mediators or inhibiting the actions of released mediators on their target cells. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p475)
A set of surgical procedures performed to establish sufficient outflow to the systemic circulation in individuals with univentricular congenital heart malformations, such as HYPOPLASTIC LEFT HEART SYNDROME, and MITRAL VALVE atresia, associated with systemic outflow obstruction. Follow-on surgeries may be performed and consist of a HEMI-FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 2 Norwood procedure and a FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 3 Norwood procedure.
A systemic inflammatory response to a variety of clinical insults, characterized by two or more of the following conditions: (1) fever >38 degrees C or HYPOTHERMIA <36 degrees C; (2) TACHYCARDIA >90 beat/minute; (3) tachypnea >24 breaths/minute; (4) LEUKOCYTOSIS >12,000 cells/cubic mm or 10% immature forms. While usually related to infection, SIRS can also be associated with noninfectious insults such as TRAUMA; BURNS; or PANCREATITIS. If infection is involved, a patient with SIRS is said to have SEPSIS.
A serious complication of childhood systemic inflammatory disorders that is thought to be caused by excessive activation and proliferation of T-LYMPHOCYTES and MACROPHAGES. It is seen predominantly in children with systemic onset JUVENILE IDIOPATHIC ARTHRITIS.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
