  1. 1. The effect of malnutrition on saliva composition and caries development

    Författare :Ingegerd Johansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :starvation; protein-deficiency; antibacterial proteins; saliva; caries; infection;

    Sammanfattning : Starvation and protein deficiency increase susceptibility to infec­tions in general and affect the function of various types of cells individually. Saliva contains substances which offer protection to the oral tissues. Its composition and secretion rate may be important in preventing the development of disease, e.g. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Host ligands and oral bacterial adhesion : studies on phosphorylated polypeptides and gp-340 in saliva and milk

    Författare :Liza Danielsson Niemi; Ingegerd Johansson; Pernilla Lif Holgersson; Jukka Meurman; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adhesion; statherin; gp-340; caseins; human milk; saliva; Streptococcus mutans; Actinomyces; Cariology; Cariologi; kariologi; Cariology;

    Sammanfattning : Infectious diseases e.g. gastric ulcer, caries and perodontitis, are caused by bacteria in a biofilm. Adhesion of bacteria to host ligands e. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Fluoride concentration in plaque and saliva and its effects on oral ecology after intake of fluoridated milk

    Författare :Kristina Engström; Svante Twetman; Lars G Petersson; Göran Dahllöf; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :children; enamel; demineralisation; fluoride; lactic acid; laser fluoroscense; milk; plaque; saliva; salivary bacteria; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : According to WHO, the addition of fluoride to milk could be considered as an alternative to water fluoridation for community-based caries prevention in childhood. School-based schemes in developing as well as industrial countries have demonstrated substantial benefits on oral health, but there are limited data available on the local events in the oral cavity after consumption of fluoridated milk.

  4. 4. Fractionated irradiation of salivary glands : loss and protection of function

    Författare :Ulrika Funegård; Thorild Ericson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Irradiation; salivary glands; saliva composition; antioxidants; radioprotection;

    Sammanfattning : Radiotherapy of malignancies in the head and neck often involves the major and minor salivary glands in the radiation field. Adverse effects, such as dry mouth symptoms, are common after such therapy. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Xylitol and its effect on oral ecology : clinical studies in children and adolescents

    Författare :Pernilla Lif Holgerson; Svante Twetman; Christina Stecksén-Blicks; Eva Söderling; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chewing gum; dental plaque; dose-response relationship; interdental plaque-pH; oral microorganisms; saliva; xylitol; Paedodontics; Pedodonti;

    Sammanfattning : Xylitol, classified as a natural sugar substitute, has for about 35 years been known as an agent that may act against caries. The mechanism of action; how it inhibits mutans streptococci (MS) and the clinical dose-response relationship are not however fully investigated. LÄS MER
