Molecular imaging assessment of periodontitis lesions in an experimental mouse model

Molecular imaging assessment of periodontitis lesions in an experimental mouse model Objective We aimed to evaluate molecular imaging as a novel diagnostic tool for mice periodontitis model induced by ligature and Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) inoculation. Materials and methods Twelve female mice were assigned to the following groups: no treatment as control group (n =4); periodontitis group induced by ligature and Pg as Pg group (n = 4); and Pg group treated with glycyrrhizinic acid (GA) as Pg +GAgroup (n = 4). All mice were administered a myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity-specific luminescent probe and observed using a charge-coupled device camera on day 14. Image analysis on all mice was conducted using software to determine the signal intensity of inflammation. Additionally, histological and radiographic evaluation for periodontal inflammation and bone resorption at the site of periodontitis, and quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) were conducted on three mice for each group. Each experiment was performed three times. Results Levels of serum IgG antibody against P. gingivalis were significantly higher in the Pg than in the Pg + GA group. Histological analyses indicated that the number of osteoclasts and neutrophils were significantly lower in the Pg + GA than in the Pg group. Micro-CT image analysis indicated no difference in bone resorption between the Pg http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical Oral Investigations Springer Journals
