Effects Of Oral Hygiene Measures On Clinical And Microbiological Parameters Of Periodontal Disease, Bruno Loos Aug 1987

Effects Of Oral Hygiene Measures On Clinical And Microbiological Parameters Of Periodontal Disease, Bruno Loos

Loma Linda University Electronic Theses, Dissertations & Projects

The effects of a 12-week period of oral hygiene alone on gingival conditions and subgingival microflora in 15 patients with severe periodontitis were investigated. In addition, subgingival microsamples were compared during this oral hygiene phase with those obtained 1 week after debridement. Clinical measurements and subgingival samples from selected sites were taken at week 0 (baseline), week 6, and week 12. Microbial samples were also taken at week 13, that is, one week following debridement. At week 0 the patients were instructed in supragingival plaque control and at week 6 the hygiene regimen was supplemented with the subgingival use of …


The Determination Of Antibody Levels In Endodontic Patients Against Eleven Microorganisms Using Ifa And Elisa Techniques, William C. Payne Jun 1987

The Determination Of Antibody Levels In Endodontic Patients Against Eleven Microorganisms Using Ifa And Elisa Techniques, William C. Payne

Loma Linda University Electronic Theses, Dissertations & Projects

Endodontic (root canal) infections are generally considered to be caused by the invasion of microorganisms which destroy pulp tissue and extend to the periapical region. No definitive study has identified a specific bacterium or group of bacteria as etiological agents. We quantitively measured antibodies present in the serum of 30 normal individuals and patients with either chronic (n = 30) or acute (n = 30) periapical lesions with the indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for IgG and IgM against 11 oral microorganisms routinely isolated from such lesions. The results were analyzed statistically. Analysis of variance of …

The Primary Structure Of Hemoglobins Of The Adult Jaguar (Panthera Onco, Carnivora), Aftab Ahmed, Meeno Jahan, Zafar H. Zaidi, Gerhard Braunitzer, Reinhard Göltenboth Jan 1987

The Primary Structure Of Hemoglobins Of The Adult Jaguar (Panthera Onco, Carnivora), Aftab Ahmed, Meeno Jahan, Zafar H. Zaidi, Gerhard Braunitzer, Reinhard Göltenboth

Pharmacy Faculty Articles and Research

The primary structure of the hemoglobins from Jaguar (Panthera onco) are presented. Electrophoretic separations without and with a dissociating agent revealed the presence of two hemoglobin components, OL2ß\ and a2 02. The separation of the hemoglobin components was achieved by ion-exchange chromatography. The globin chains were separated by ion-exchange chromatography and also by reversed phase HPLC. The amino-acid sequences of the native chains and peptides were determined by liquid-phase and gas-phase sequencing. N-Acetylserine was detected by FAB-mass spectroscopy as N-terminal group of the ßl chain. The sequences are compared with that of human hemoglobin (Hb A).
