Inflammatory effects of periodontally diseased cementum studied by autogenous dental root implants in humans

The inflammatory potential of diseased cementum was studied by implanting 70 autogenous fragments from periodontally involved roots into the mucosa of 56 patients. The implants were divided into groups depending upon the type of preparation the root received prior to implantation. Fifteen healthy root fragments implanted into 15 patients served as controls. Histologic results showed that implanted fragments from roots that had been scaled caused the most response with acute inflammation up to 14 days and chronic inflammation to 21 days. In cases in which these fragments were autoclaved the acute inflammation was not as severe. In the cases in which the roots were planed and autoclaved, even less acute inflammation was seen in the 7-day specimens while some chronic inflammation persisted in the 21-day specimens. Implants from healthy roots evoked no response. The inflammation caused by the autoclaved diseased cementum was attributed to thermo-stable endotoxin. It was concluded that in advanced periodontal disease it is necessary to remove all of the cementum exposed to the pocket to eliminate its potential for inducing inflammation.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
