Background and Objective: It has been reported that peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from periodontal patients have a different profile of cytokine release when compared to the ones of healthy patients. Cigarette smoking is a recognized risk factor for periodontitis and is known to affect the systemic and local immune responses. Thus, the aim of the present study was to obtain preliminary data about the interaction of periodontal condition and smoking in the secretion of some cytokines by PBMC.
Material and Methods: PBMC samples were isolated from 19 donors, divided into generalized chronic periodontitis (P; n=10) and periodontal health (H; n=9) groups. In addition, the smokers and non-smokers of each group were separately evaluated: SP- smokers with severe generalized chronic periodontitis (n=5); SH- periodontally healthy smokers (n=5); NSP- non-smokers with severe generalized chronic periodontitis (n=5) and NSH- periodontally healthy non-smokers (n=4). Cells were incubated for 24-48 hours in 500 µL wells containing RPMI 1640 and stimulated with 1.0 ng/mL of E. coli LPS. Supernatants were used to quantify the amounts of TNF-α, IL-6, IL-8 and IL-10 released using ELISA kits.

Periodontitis is a highly prevalent chronic inflammatory disease that is characterized by loss of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone, and is a major cause of tooth loss. Results fr...
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with an increased risk of periodontitis even if the mechanism is unknown. Since both MetS and periodontitis are characterized by an alteration of inflammation s...
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether or not the concentration levels of certain kinds of trace elements in hair are associated with periodontitis. We studied a total of 109 participant...
Periodontitis results from bacteria induced inflammation. A key cytokine, RANKL is produced by a number of cell types. The cellular source of RANKL critical for periodontitis has not been established.
The aim of this study was to describe the radiographic features of the first molars of patients with localized aggressive periodontitis (LAgP) and of their associated intrabony defects and to compare ...
Whether an association between alcohol consumption and periodontitis exists is still unclear. This study aimed to assess the association between alcohol consumption and periodontitis.
Inflammation and loss of connective tissues supporting or surrounding the teeth. This may involve any part of the PERIODONTIUM. Periodontitis is currently classified by disease progression (CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS; AGGRESSIVE PERIODONTITIS) instead of age of onset. (From 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, American Academy of Periodontology)
Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.
Inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction in the presence of little local factors such as DENTAL PLAQUE and DENTAL CALCULUS. This highly destructive form of periodontitis often occurs in young people and was called early-onset periodontitis, but this disease also appears in old people.
A periodontal pathogen which is a gram-negative member of BACTEROIDETES. It is implicated in PERIODONTITIS.
A gram-negative gliding bacterium isolated from the oral cavity. It is a pathogen often causing PERIODONTITIS.
Cytokines include chemokines, lymphokines, and monokines. Cells of the immune system communicate with one another by releasing and responding to chemical messengers called cytokines. These proteins are secreted by immune cells and act on other cells to...
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...
