This study investigates the levels of advanced oxidation protein product and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 in gingival crevicular fluid in periodontal disease and health. 25 participants with chronic periodontitis, 25 participants with gingivitis and 25 periodontally healthy subjects are included into this study. In each participant, four sites are identified for gingival crevicular fluid samples.
Oxidative stress is the disequilibrium between the formation of free radicals and antioxidant defense mechanisms via damaging cellular macromolecules (DNA, protein, lipid, etc..) which are susceptible to oxidative damage.
Advanced oxidation protein product is identified as a new marker of protein oxidation.
Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 is a major chemoattractant for lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages.

The purpose of this study is to determine if there are signs of inflammation in one's blood and urine and to find out if one's body size or ethnicity has an effect on these substances.
Although underutilized, what is emerging as one of the best ways of evaluating inflammation in the body, particularly in difficult to observe regions, is through the use of Fluorodeoxygluc...
Studies have shown that the prevalence of respiratory symptoms, airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and asthma is high and increasing in elite athletes. The inflammation seen in the airways o...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether FDG-PET is capable of detecting atherosclerotic plaque inflammation and monitoring the effects of statins on plaque inflammation. The usef...
Patients with COPD experience exacerbations that are a major cause of morbidity. Exacerbations are associated with increased airway and systemic inflammation and those experiencing frequen...
Urinary CXCL10 is a promising biomarker for subclinical tubulointerstitial inflammation, but limited data exists regarding its correlation with (micro)vascular inflammation. Furthermore, no study has ...
A lack of absolute correlation between systemic inflammation parameters and ongoing vascular disease activity is an important problem in some patients with large vessel vasculitis, especially Takayasu...
A widely discussed physiological puzzle of mammalian pregnancy is the immunological paradox, which asks: why is the semi-allogenic fetus not attacked by the mother's adaptive immune system? Here, we a...
Angiotensin II (Ang II) causes vascular inflammation, leading to vascular endothelial cell dysfunction, and is associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, interventions in i...
This article reviews the literature and summarizes the role of inflammation in dry eye disease. A PubMed search was performed using the keywords inflammatory cycle and dry eye. All searches were limit...
Inflammation of the PERIAPICAL TISSUE. It includes general, unspecified, or acute nonsuppurative inflammation. Chronic nonsuppurative inflammation is PERIAPICAL GRANULOMA. Suppurative inflammation is PERIAPICAL ABSCESS.
Inflammation of the lung parenchyma that is associated with PLEURISY, inflammation of the PLEURA.
Inflammation of the interstitial tissue of the kidney. This term is generally used for primary inflammation of KIDNEY TUBULES and/or surrounding interstitium. For primary inflammation of glomerular interstitium, see GLOMERULONEPHRITIS. Infiltration of the inflammatory cells into the interstitial compartment results in EDEMA, increased spaces between the tubules, and tubular renal dysfunction.
Inflammation caused by an injurious stimulus of peripheral neurons and resulting in release of neuropeptides which affect vascular permeability and help initiate proinflammatory and immune reactions at the site of injury.
A reovirus infection, chiefly of sheep, characterized by a swollen blue tongue, catarrhal inflammation of upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts, and often by inflammation of sensitive laminae of the feet and coronet.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
