Periodontal Disease and Circulatory Microbial Components

2014-08-27 03:12:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The goal of this project is to study the immune activity of certain proteins present in the blood of patients with severe periodontal disease. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the major cause of tooth loss among adults. Moderate to severe periodontal disease is reported to affect 5-15% of American adults. It begins with an infection of the tissues surrounding the teeth, and leads to a worsening inflammatory response. This study will aid in clarifying the way in which gum disease might affect certain systemic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Description

This project will have two specific goals: 1. Identify microorganism components in the serum of patients with severe periodontitis; and 2. Characterize the immune regulator activity of periodontitis serum. This proposed feasibility study will then aid in providing the support for an increased sample size and other design requirements for larger, more expanded human clinical trial testing.In this study, forty (40) subjects will be divided into 2 groups: 1) Healthy oral status group; and 2) Severe periodontal disease. Patients will be clinically screened using standard periodontal measurements.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any restorative and replacement device that is used as a therapeutic aid in the treatment of periodontal disease. It is an adjunct to other forms of periodontal therapy and does not cure periodontal disease by itself. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 3d ed)

Removal or disruption of DENTAL DEPOSITS and plaque-retentive DENTAL CALCULUS from tooth surfaces and within the periodontal pocket space without deliberate removal of CEMENTUM as done in ROOT PLANING and often in DENTAL SCALING. The goal is to conserve dental cementum to help maintain or re-establish healthy periodontal environment and eliminate PERIODONTITIS by using light instrumentation strokes and nonsurgical techniques (e.g., ultrasonic, laser instruments).

Loss or destruction of periodontal tissue caused by periodontitis or other destructive periodontal diseases or by injury during instrumentation. Attachment refers to the periodontal ligament which attaches to the alveolar bone. It has been hypothesized that treatment of the underlying periodontal disease and the seeding of periodontal ligament cells enable the creating of new attachment.

Studies which start with the identification of persons with a disease of interest and a control (comparison, referent) group without the disease. The relationship of an attribute to the disease is examined by comparing diseased and non-diseased persons with regard to the frequency or levels of the attribute in each group.

A numerical rating scale for classifying the periodontal status of a person or population with a single figure which takes into consideration prevalence as well as severity of the condition. It is based upon probe measurement of periodontal pockets and on gingival tissue status.
