Clinical trials involving quality of life measurement published in the literature suffer from important weaknesses due to the lack of information on numerous topics. The psychometric properties of the instruments are often lacking as well as data on the number of patients treated and analyzed. The handling of missing data is rarely documented. In order to(More)
Gram-positive bacteria entering the dentinal tissue during the carious process are suspected to influence the immune response in human dental pulp. Odontoblasts situated at the pulp/dentin interface are the first cells encountered by these bacteria and therefore could play a crucial role in this response. In the present study, we found that in(More)
An antiserum was generated from synthetic peptides highly conserved between different mammalian species to immunolocalise the small leucine-rich proteoglycan osteoadherin (OSAD) in murine teeth. In 19-day-old embryos of rats and mice, a positive staining was found in incisor predentin and alveolar bone surrounding developing incisors and molars. In(More)
Human odontoblasts trigger immune response s to oral bacteria that invade dental tissues during the caries process. To date, their ability to regulate the expression of the nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat containing receptor NOD2 when challenged by Gram-positive bacteria is unknown. In this study, we investigated NOD2 expression in healthy and(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that human dental pulp cells sense pathogens and elicit innate and/or adaptive immunity. Particular attention has been paid to odontoblasts that are situated at the pulp-dentin interface and constitute the first line of defense to cariogenic bacteria entering dentin after enamel disruption. In this review, recent in vitro(More)
Odontoblasts, dental pulp fibroblasts and immature dendritic cells (DCs) have been involved in the human dental pulp immune response to oral pathogens that invade dentine during the caries process. How they regulate the inflammatory response to Gram-positive bacteria remains nevertheless largely unknown. In this study we investigated the production of the(More)
Migration and maturation of human dendritic cells derived from CD34+ progenitor cells (DC) infected by Toxoplasma gondii were studied in an in vitro model. We demonstrated that infection with virulent type I strains RH and ENT or type II low virulent strains PRU and CAL induced DC migration towards MIP-3beta. However, type II strains induced a higher(More)
Outer membrane protein (Omp)A is highly represented and conserved in the Enterobacteriaceae family. Using a recombinant OmpA from Klebsiella pneumoniae (kpOmpA), we have analysed the interaction between this bacterial cell wall protein and human Langerhans cells (LC), the antigen-presenting cells of the epidermis and mucosa. We showed that biotinylated(More)
