A relationship between periodontal disease and atherosclerosis has been suggested by epidemiological studies. Ligature-induced experimental periodontitis is an adequate model for clinical periodontitis, which starts from plaque accumulation, followed by inflammation in the periodontal tissue. Here we have demonstrated using a ligature-induced periodontitis(More)
AIMS/INTRODUCTION The involvement of glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) on inflammation was explored in atherosclerosis and adipose tissue. Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease, and is considered one of the diabetic complications. In the present study, to examine the effect of GIP on periodontitis, we induced experimental(More)
Due to the prevalence of allergic diseases such as bronchial asthma, allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and dermallergosis, efforts at the discovery of novel and effective medications for prevention and treatment of these conditions have been reinforced. Recently, it has been recognized that these allergic diseases are a chronic inflammatory disorder of the lower(More)
AIM The aetiology of progressive periodontitis in diabetes has not yet been elucidated. We previously demonstrated that nitrosative stress is increased in diabetic rats with periodontitis. Nitrosative stress induces poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) activation. Here, we demonstrated the involvement of PARP activation in diabetic periodontitis and detailed(More)
