Periodontal diseases in children and adolescents by Kazuhiko Nakano( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The clinical features of periodontal diseases in children and adolescents differ from those in adults. Periodontitis is extremely rare in children, except those complicated with certain kinds of systemic diseases, whereas gingivitis is commonly encountered. Childhood gingivitis can be reversed by professional mechanical tooth cleaning in combination with tooth brushing instruction. Other types of periodontal diseases include gingival recession, which is mainly caused by traumatic occlusion, and gingival overgrowth, which has a hereditary background and is associated with specific medication such as antiepileptic phenytoin. This book presents and discusses periodontal disease in children and adolescents

Apple‐ and Hop‐Polyphenols Inhibit Porphyromonas gingivalis‐Mediated Precursor of Matrix Metalloproteinase‐9 Activation and Invasion of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cells( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Recent epidemiologic studies have revealed a significant association between periodontitis and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Furthermore, periodontitis is markedly associated with orodigestive cancer mortality, whereas Porphyromonas gingivalis ( Pg ) infection has been identified as a specific and potentially independent microbial factor related to increased risk of orodigestive cancer death. The authors previously reported that Pg induced the precursor form of matrix metalloproteinase‐9 (proMMP‐9) production via proteinase‐activated receptor (PAR)‐related pathways, after which proMMP‐9 was activated by gingipains to enhance cellular invasion of SAS cells. In the present study, effects of selected polyphenols as inhibitors of cellular invasion caused by Pg gingipains in SAS cells are examined. Methods: OSCC cells were infected with Pg strains including gingipain mutants. To evaluate effects of inhibitors: 1) apple polyphenol (AP); 2) hop bract polyphenol (HBP); 3) high‐molecular‐weight fractions of HBP (HMW‐HBP); 4) low‐molecular‐weight fractions of HBP (LMW‐HBP); 5) epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg); 6) KYT‐1 (Arg‐gingipain inhibitor); and KYT‐36 (Lys‐gingipain inhibitor) in combination are used. PAR 2 and PAR4 mRNA expressions are examined using real‐time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, and signaling pathways are evaluated by western blotting analysis. Results: KYT‐1/KYT‐36, AP, HBP, and HMW‐HBP significantly inhibited PAR2 and PAR4 mRNA expressions, proMMP‐9 activation, and cellular invasion. Furthermore, AP, HBP, and HMW‐HBP reduced activation of heat shock protein 27 and Ets1 and nuclear translocation of nuclear factor‐kappa B, whereas EGCg and LMW‐HBP did not. Conclusion: These results suggest that AP, HBP, HMW‐HBP are potent inhibitors of proMMP‐9 activation and cellular invasion mediated with Pg in OSCC cells
