Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.

The opdB locus encodes the trypsin-like peptidase activity of Treponema denticola. (1/19)

High levels of Treponema denticola in subgingival dental plaque are associated with severe periodontal disease. T. denticola, along with Porphyromonas gingivalis and Bacteroides forsythus, are the only cultivatable oral microorganisms that produce significant amounts of "trypsin-like" peptidase activity. The ability of subgingival plaque to hydrolyze N-alpha-benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide (BANA) is associated with high levels of one or more of these organisms. The purpose of this study was to identify the gene encoding trypsin-like activity in T. denticola and thus facilitate molecular-level studies of its potential role in disease. Using published peptide sequences of a T. denticola surface-associated oligopeptidase with BANA-hydrolyzing activity, we identified the gene, designated opdB, in an apparently noncoding region of the T. denticola genome unannotated contigs (11/2000; http://www.tigr.org). The opdB gene begins with a TTG start codon and encodes a 685-residue peptide with high homology to the oligopeptidase B family in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. An isogenic T. denticola opdB mutant was constructed by allelic replacement mutagenesis using an ermF/AM gene cassette. The mutant lacked BANA-hydrolyzing activity and had a slightly slower growth rate than the parent strain. This mutant will be used in future studies of interactions of T. denticola with host cells and tissue.  (+info)

Comparison of the benzoyl-DL-arginine-naphthylamide (BANA) test, DNA probes, and immunological reagents for ability to detect anaerobic periodontal infections due to Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola, and Bacteroides forsythus. (2/19)

Most forms of periodontal disease are associated with the presence or overgrowth of anaerobic species that could include Treponema denticola, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Bacteroides forsythus among others. These three organisms are among the few cultivable plaque species that can hydrolyze the synthetic trypsin substrate benzoyl-DL-arginine-naphthylamide (BANA). In turn, BANA hydrolysis by the plaque can be associated with periodontal morbidity and with the presence of these three BANA-positive organisms in the plaque. In this investigation, the results of the BANA test, which simultaneously detects one or more of these organisms, were compared with the detection of these organisms by (i) highly specific antibodies to P. gingivalis, T. denticola, and B. forsythus; (ii) whole genomic DNA probes to P. gingivalis and T. denticola; and (iii) culturing or microscopic procedures. The BANA test, the DNA probes, and an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or an indirect immunofluorescence assay procedure exhibited high sensitivities, i.e., 90 ot 96%, and high accuracies, i.e., 83 to 92%, in their ability to detect combinations of these organisms in over 200 subgingival plaque samples taken from the most periodontally diseased sites in 67 patients. This indicated that if P. gingivalis, T. denticola, and B. forsythus are appropriate marker organisms for an anaerobic periodontal infection, then the three detection methods are equally accurate in their ability to diagnose this infection. The same statement could not be made for the culturing approach, where accuracies of 50 to 62% were observed.  (+info)

A closer look at diagnosis in clinical dental practice: part 4. Effectiveness of nonradiographic diagnostic procedures and devices in dental practice. (3/19)

This article, the fourth in a series, examines nonradiographic procedures and devices such as standard clinical and visual examination, apex locators, vitality testers and colour shade guides in light of the tools described in the first 2 articles in the series. A variety of nonradiographic indices and scales are used in detecting periodontal disease and monitoring and assessing its treatment. The reliability of these diagnostic procedures directly affects treatment success, decisions to initiate more aggressive clinical interventions, and the ability to make an informed prognosis about the course of the disease. However, in many instances, the dependability of the measurements remains to be established.  (+info)

Detection and measurement of oral malodour in periodontitis patients. (4/19)

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Malodour has been correlated with the concentration of volatile sulphur compounds produced in the oral cavity by metabolic activity of bacteria colonizing the periodontal sites and the dorsum of the tongue. The aim of this study was to detect malodour in mouth air organoleptically and using a portable sulphide monitor and to correlate it with the clinical parameters, halitosis linked toxins and BANA, using tongue and subgingival plaque samples. The halitosis grading is also correlated with the microbial colonies of the subgingival plaque sample. METHODS: 20 patients with chronic periodontitis with 5-7 mm pocket depth, radiographic evidence of bone loss and presence of oral malodour participated in this study. Assessment of mouth air was done organoleptically and by using a portable sulphide monitor. The clinical parameter, plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI), gingival bleeding index (BI), were obtained from all the areas. Samples for BANA and to detect halitosis linked toxins were taken from the dorsal surface of the tongue and periodontal pockets ranging 5-7 mm. Halitosis related microbial colonies were identified using anaerobic culturing from the subgingival plaque. RESULTS: The scores of PI, GI, BI and sample that tested positive for halitosis linked toxins and with the halitosis grading were not significant. The presence of tongue coating and the halitosis grading and toxin levels were significant. BANA has shown to be non contributory due to technical problems. Anaerobic culture has shown to identify Streptococcus, Bacteroides, Fusobacterium, Porphyromonas and Prevotella colonies. INTERPRETATION & CONCLUSION: The results confirmed that there was no correlation between the clinical parameters, halitosis linked toxins and halitosis grading. The microbial colonies have shown to correlate with the presence of oral malodour.  (+info)

Effect of adjunctive systemic azithromycin with periodontal surgery in the treatment of chronic periodontitis in smokers: a pilot study. (5/19)

BACKGROUND: Along with conventional surgical therapy, systemic antibiotics may provide more effective treatment in smokers by targeting tissue-invasive bacteria. The aim of this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-masked clinical trial was to evaluate the adjunctive effects of systemic azithromycin (AZM) in combination with periodontal pocket reduction surgery in the treatment of chronic periodontitis in smokers. METHODS: Thirty patients with a greater than one pack/day smoking habit and generalized moderate to severe chronic periodontitis were randomized to the test (surgery plus 3 days of AZM, 500 mg) or control group (surgery plus 3 days of placebo). Full-mouth probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), bleeding on probing (BOP), gingival index (GI), plaque index, and wound healing indices (WHI) were assessed at baseline and at 2 weeks and 1, 3, and 6 months following surgical intervention. Plaque and gingival crevicular fluid were collected for trypsin-like enzyme activity (benzoyl-dl-arginine naphthylamine) and bone biomarker (crosslinked telopeptide of type I collagen [ICTP]) analyses, respectively, at baseline, 2 weeks, and 1, 3, and 6 months. RESULTS: Surgical treatment of moderate (PD = 4 to 6 mm) and deep (PD > 6 mm) pockets significantly improved clinical parameters of treated and untreated teeth (CAL gain, PD reduction, and reduction of BOP). The additional use of AZM did not enhance this improvement nor did it promote reduction of ICTP levels. Compared to the control group, the test group had significantly better WHI scores at 1 month, significantly less GI at 2 weeks, and sustained reductions of red-complex bacteria with trypsin-like enzyme activity at 3 months. For non-surgery teeth, only the test group showed significant gains in overall CAL compared to baseline. CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this pilot study demonstrated that in heavy smokers, adjunctive systemic AZM in combination with pocket reduction surgery did not significantly enhance PD reduction or CAL gain. However, the clinical value of adjunctive AZM may be appreciated by more rapid wound healing, less short-term gingival inflammation, and sustained reductions of periopathogenic bacteria. More expanded studies are recommended to better determine the clinical effects of adjunctive AZM in patients who smoke.  (+info)

A retrospective clinical, radiographic and microbiological study of periodontal conditions of teeth with and without crowns. (6/19)

The aim of this study was to evaluate retrospectively the periodontal conditions of teeth with fixed crowns that had been in place from 3 to 5 years before the study was conducted. Forty individuals were recalled for a follow-up visit. Full-mouth clinical examinations were carried out and Visible Plaque Index (VPI), Gingival Bleeding Index (GBI), Probing Pocket Depth (PPD), and clinical attachment level (CAL) were assessed in 6 sites per tooth. Parallel radiographs were also taken and blindly analyzed by a digital caliper (distance between the apex and the bone crest). BANA tests were performed. A contra-lateral sound tooth was considered the control. Mean values were obtained and Wilcoxon and paired sample t tests were used to compare the test and control sites. Crowns had a mean VPI value of 30.42% as compared to 49.17% for sound teeth. The GBI was 33.33% and 26.25% for test and control teeth respectively. Assessment of PPD revealed values of 2.30 and 2.14 mm, and assessment of CAL revealed averages of 2.02 and 1.89 mm for test and control teeth respectively. The mean values for radiographic distances were 12.73 and 13.67 mm, and for the BANA test, 67.50 and 50.00 for sound and crowned teeth, respectively. Statistically significant differences were observed for all parameters except for CAL and for the BANA test. It may be concluded that, with the methods used in the present study, crowns may be associated with more signs of inflammation, however not with periodontal breakdown.  (+info)

Oral malodour on awakening is common and generally not regarded as halitosis. Longstanding oral malodour is usually caused by oral, or sometimes nasopharyngeal, disease (box 1). The most likely cause of oral malodour is the accumulation of food debris and dental bacterial plaque on the teeth and tongue, resulting from poor oral hygiene and resultant gingival (gingivitis) and periodontal (gingivitis/periodontitis) inflammation. Although most types of gingivitis and periodontitis can give rise to malodour, acute necrotising ulcerative gingivitis (Vincents disease, trench mouth) causes the most notable halitosis. Adult periodontitis, characterised by gradual plaque related loss of periodontal attachment, can cause variable degrees of oral malodour.2 Aggressive periodontitis, typified by rapid loss of periodontal bone and resultant tooth mobility, can cause intense oral malodour.. Lack of oral cleansing because of xerostomia (dryness of the mouth) also has the potential to cause or enhance ...

Current classification criteria for axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) provide for the inclusion of patients with a wide range of presentations and manifestations. While not considered a formal subclassification, patients are often divided into radiographic or nonradiographic axSpA based on the presence or absence of radiographic sacroiliitis. This review will focus on nonradiographic axSpA and will discuss clinical manifestations of disease that distinguish, or in many cases do not distinguish, this entity from other individuals with axSpA. This review will also cover treatment paradigms for nonradiographic axSpA, particularly the use of biologic therapies, where current data suggest that nonradiographic disease should be managed largely the same as radiographic disease, or classical ankylosing spondylitis.
The BANA test (referring to the enzymatic breakdown of [N-benzoyl-dL-arginine-2-napthylamide]) is used to determine the proteolytic activity of certain oral anaerobes that contribute to oral malodor. Some bacteria, e.g. Prophyromona gingivalis, Treponema denticola, and Bacteroides forsythus (Red complex) produce waste products that are quite odiferous, and as a result contribute to bad breath. When a sample of a patients saliva that contains these bacteria is placed within the BANA testing compound, it causes the breakdown of the N-benzoyl enzyme. As a result of this biodegradation occurs, the test compound changes color, indicating a positive reaction. Uses: Used to identify volatile Sulphur compounds in halitosis patients. Metabolism ...

Research using the OralChroma gas analysis tool from Envin Scientific has provided new evidence for a link between tonsillectomy and reduced halitosis.
We confirmed a similar burden of disease (as determined by self-reported disease activity, impaired function, and quality of life) in patients with nonradiographic axial SpA (n = 232) and those with radiographic axial SpA (n = 838). Patients with radiographic axial SpA had higher median levels of acute-phase reactants and higher median AS Disease Activity Scores (ASDAS; 3.2 versus 3.0). Anti-TNF treatment was initiated in 363 patients with radiographic axial SpA and 102 patients with nonradiographic axial SpA, preferentially in those with sacroiliitis on magnetic resonance imaging, peripheral arthritis, a higher C-reactive protein (CRP) level, a higher ASDAS, and a higher Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index level.

The dipeptide glycyl-l-phenylalanine 2-naphthylamide (GPN) is widely used to perturb lysosomes because its cleavage by the lysosomal enzyme cathepsin C is proposed to rupture lysosomal membranes. We show that GPN evokes a sustained increase in lysosomal pH (pHly), and transient increases in cytosolic pH (pHcyt) and Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]c). None of these effects require cathepsin C, nor are they accompanied by rupture of lysosomes, but they are mimicked by structurally unrelated weak bases. GPN-evoked increases in [Ca2+]c require Ca2+ within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), but they are not mediated by ER Ca2+ channels amplifying Ca2+ release from lysosomes. GPN increases [Ca2+]c by increasing pHcyt, which then directly stimulates Ca2+ release from the ER. We conclude that physiologically relevant increases in pHcyt stimulate Ca2+ release from the ER in a manner that is independent of IP3 and ryanodine receptors, and that GPN does not selectively target lysosomes. ...

In this study, 39 % of patients referred to rheumatology clinics with CLBP met the ASAS criteria for IBP. Further, 29 % of patients with IBP met the criteria for nr-axSpA. The proportion of axial SpA patients with nr-axSpA was within the range (23-80 %) reported in the literature [4, 8], though on the lower end of prior estimates.. Our data suggest a higher percentage of males among patients with nr-axSpA (64 %) relative to the percentages in other published noninterventional studies (34-50 %) [9, 10] and most clinical trials (48-64 %) [11-16]. There were a number of methodological differences across these studies (e.g., inclusion and exclusion criteria, country), but it is unclear which of these factors would help to explain the differences in results. Further research is necessary.. We found that patients with nr-axSpA were the youngest, and they experienced CLBP for the shortest duration at slightly over 6 years compared with nearly 11 years for patients with AS. Although no age differences ...

INTRODUCTION. Bad breath or halitosis is an offensive odor exhaled by the mouth, nasal cavities or facial and pharyngeal sinuses. In 90% of cases, causes of halitosis are located in the mouth and can be attributed to: dental caries, periodontal disease, oral infections and mainly tongue coating(1-2). As coating is not contagious, it is common that only one partner has a bad breath, to the extent of bothering the other.. Smell and sight are susceptible to great adaptations. When first exposed to a very strong smell, the feeling can be very intense, but will hardly be felt within a minute. Hence, individuals are incapable of measuring their own halitosis(3).. This study aims to investigate the historical and social bases of halitosis, through a systematized search, selecting Brazilian and international articles from the database BVS (Virtual Health Library) and also in books about this theme. This subject is relevant as the presence of halitosis can affect the full range of peoples quality of ...

Oleaginous yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides is an excellent microbial lipid producer using carbohydrates as the feedstock [1]. Therefore, it is important to develop molecular biology tools to further manipulate this microorganism. Extraction of high-quality RNA from R. toruloides is particular challenging due to high level of polysaccharides, lipids and other secondary metabolites [2]. To obtain an optimal protocol for RNA extraction from R. toruloides, four methods, including guanidine thiocyanate [3], glass beads-hot acid phenol, glass beads-TRIzol, and modified RNAiso, were evaluated. RNA quality was assessed using UV absorbance (A260/A280 and A260/A230), agarose gel electrophoresis, reverse transcription (RT)-PCR reactions, and Gel-Pro analyzer 4.5. Large differences in RNA yield and quality among protocols were found. The optimum method was modified RNAiso method, where RNA was isolated using liquid nitrogen-RNAiso with salt precipitation and the addition of PVP andβ-mercaptoethanol. This ...
Introduction: The purpose of this preliminary study was to evaluate the periodontal condition of intruded molars in various phases of treatments. Methods: 30 patients with at least one overerupted upper first molar were selected. Upper molar bands with brackets were cemented. Two miniscrews were placed in the mesiopalatal and mesiobuccal aspect of the aforementioned teeth. A titanium molybdenum alloy (TMA) spring was attached to the head of miniscrew in one end and ligated to the bracket in the other end to reach the predetermined force. Plaque index (PI), probing pocket depth (PPD), keratinized gingiva (KG), The distance between miniscrew (M.S) and gingival level (GL), and bleeding on probing (BOP) were recorded before loading and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 months post-loading .Results: All patients completed the study and no complications were reported.

Oral bacteria that degrade sulphur-containing amino acids (cysteine, cystine, and methionine) produce volatile sulphur compounds (VSCs = hydrogen sulphide, methyl mercaptan, and dimethyl sulphide) highly correlated with halitosis. When these bacteria are given the right environment, i.e. periodontal disease, cariogenic biofilm or food source they can grow in number very quickly and will start to convert proteins to VSC that, together with volatile fatty acids are largely responsible for oral malodor. Recently, the prevention of dental caries and periodontal diseases using various probiotics has been attempted. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of probiotics based on in vitro analysis, such as antibacterial activity, and to evaluate the neutralizing effect of probiotics on halitosis, the levels of VSCs were measured by gas chromatography.. ...
Halitosis is a common symptom which can affect people of all ages. It may decrease self confidence and social interactions. Oral halitosos is the consequence of microbial (mainly Gram negative bacteria) breakdown of food debris, cells, saliva, and blood. The agents that give rise to halitosis include especially the volatile sulphur compounds (VSC), diamines, and short chain fatty acids of which only the VSC can be detected in the clinical setting, making the detection of halitosis often very hard. The most common cause for oral halitosis is poor oral hygiene due to gingivitis or periodontitis. Other causes include bacterial accumulation on the posterior tongue, tonsillitis and others. Dry mouth has been implicated as a potential cause in halitosis.. Due to the lack of quantitative objective measuring to the severity of halitosis and especially in the face of the subjective nature of halitosis as occurs commonly a subjectively measurement is necessary. As no current QOL exists for measurement of ...
Treatment begins with identifying the problem. If there appear to be tumors in the mouth, they will be need to biopsied to determine if they are benign or malignant.
