Infectious Agents Exposure : Archiving in Dental Plaque

2019-03-12 04:25:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

We are studying the possibility of using dental calculus as a reservoir for the genes of an infectious agent that has infected the patient in previous months; as it is done to highlight climate change in ice samples.

Description

From a sample of people who have had a microbiologically well-documented infection, we will study the possibility after genomic amplification to find, three to 12 months after genetic sequences of the infectious agent in the dental calculus of the person. The people will be recruited according to a large panel of infectious agent (gram + and gram bacterium, mycobacteria, parasite, fungus, DNA, RNA or retrovirus) and, of course, the presence of dental calculus.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.

A nontuberculous infection when occurring in humans. It is characterized by pulmonary disease, lymphadenitis in children, and systemic disease in AIDS patients. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection of birds and swine results in tuberculosis.

Infection involving the tissues or organs in the PELVIS.

Infection in humans and animals caused by fungi in the class Zygomycetes. It includes MUCORMYCOSIS and entomophthoramycosis. The latter is a tropical infection of subcutaneous tissue or paranasal sinuses caused by fungi in the order Entomophthorales. Phycomycosis, closely related to zygomycosis, describes infection with members of Phycomycetes, an obsolete classification.

An infection at a specific location that may spread to another region of the body.
