Salivary and serum concentrations of soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) were studied in a group of patients with Sjögren’s syndrome and a group suffering from dry mouth. Salivary sIL-2R levels was significantly higher (57.9±15.1 vs 16.7±4.7 pg/ml) ( p <0.05) in the group of 26 patients...
Proteases produced by Porphyromonas gingivalis are believed to contribute to the pathogenesis of periodontal diseases. Here the cytotoxic effects of a purified preparation of a P. gingivalis protease with trypsin-like specificity were tested on human gingival fibroblasts in vitro. The active...
Lanthanum nitrate was either perfused intravascularly or segments of mouse tooth were immersed in a fixative solution containing the tracer. The tracer deposits were examined in young (8-day-old) and older (8-week-old) mouse incisors and molars, demineralized or undemineralized. Lanthanum passed...
Stationary and dynamic characteristics of autofluorescence in human dentine were examined with a nanosecond time-resolved fluorescence microphotometer. With ageing, the intensity of the fluorescence increased whereas the decay time decreased. There were no differences in fluorescence intensity,...
Insulin, insulin-like growth factors (IGF) I and II are considered to play an important part in the growth and differentiation of dental pulp cells. The present study examined the effects of these factors on pulp cells in serum-free culture conditions. The DNA content and alkaline phosphatase...
The fibrous tissue of the articular disc of the dysfunctional temporomandibular joint undergoes deep and variable structural modifications. Here the concurrence of morphological changes and the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) in damaged discs from individuals suffering joint...
The distribution of hyaluronan and versican in the dental pulp of the young rat was mapped histochemically. The pattern of staining showed considerable variation between different teeth and different specimens. The most common pattern was a strong reaction for hyaluronan and a weak reaction for...
To study the effect of increased occlusal vertical dimension on the fibre phenotypes of the superficial masseter muscle, the composition of myosin heavy-chains (MHC), myosin light-chains (MLC) and tropomyosin was investigated by sodium dodecyl sulphate–polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and...
This study evaluated the effect of intravenous infusion of a non-selective α -adrenergic blocking agent on masseter muscle haemodynamics induced by 4°C cold pressor stimulation (CPS) of the right foot and ankle, which reportedly evokes a rapidly increasing sympathetic nerve activity in human...
Salivary glands require body fluids for normal function. It has been suggested that decreased levels of hydration (dehydration) may cause diminished salivary output, but it is not known whether salivary flow rates are related to biological measures of hydration status. The purpose of this study...
