  1. 1. Bacteria-agglutinating glycoproteins in human saliva : an in vitro study with special reference to Streptococcus mutans

    Författare :Jan Rundegren; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :agglutinin; glycoprotein; saliva; streptococcus mutans;

    Sammanfattning : The activity and specificity of salivary glycoproteins (agglutinins) aggregating various human indigenous microorganisms were studied in vitro. The agglutinin reacting with a serotype c strain of Streptococcus mutans was isolated and chemically characterized.The results can be summarized as follows:1. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Clinical Pharmacokinetics of the Antimalarial Artemisinin Based on Saliva Sampling

    Författare :Toufigh Gordi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Artemisinin; pharmacokinetics; saliva; HPLC; pharmacodynamics; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci; Biopharmaceutics; biofarmaci;

    Sammanfattning : Artemisinin is the parent compound of a novel family of antimalarials. Repetitive administrations of artemisinin to both healthy volunteers and malaria patients have been shown to result in decreased plasma concentrations of the compound, most probably due to an autoinduction of different CYP450 enzymes.

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. On the adsorption behaviour of saliva and purified salivary proteins at solid/liquid interfaces

    Författare :Liselott Lindh; Malmö högskola; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acidic proline-rich proteins; adsorption; BSM; diffusion; ellipsometry; interfaces; mass transport limitation; mucins; MUC5B; saliva; salivary proteins; statherin; surface properties;

    Sammanfattning : Den salivfilm som bildas genom selektiv proteinadsorption på ytor i munhålan har stor profylaktisk betydelse genom sin skyddande funktion och befrämjar därigenom oral hälsa. Några av de adsorberade komponenterna har smörjande funktion (t ex muciner, sura prolinrika proteiner (PRP) och statherin), som är viktig bl a för att förhindra slitage mellan tandytor vid tuggning och hos gnisslare.
