This study was designed to (i) delineate the characteristics of serum antibody responses to Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans in patients with periodontitis who are infected with A. actinomycetemcomitans; irrespective of disease classification; (ii) assess the relationship of the elevated antibody levels to colonization of the oral cavity by A.(More)
This investigation developed an experimental design that (1) detailed the distribution of A. actinomycetemcomitans in subgingival plaque related to the level of serum antibody to this pathogen; (2) used broad based subgingival plaque sampling to allow a definition of the distribution of A. actinomycetemcomitans infection in periodontitis patients; (3)(More)
We hypothesized that serum antibody with selected antigen specificities would relate to infection and disease in the patients and, thus, describe the characteristics of potential protective antibody. This study used serum samples from 24 periodontitis patients with subgingival infection and elevated serum IgG antibody to A. actinomycetemcomitans to define(More)
The Drug Facts Label is designed to guide consumers in comparing nonprescription drugs. Undergraduates studied and recalled drug facts for three analgesic or non-analgesic labels using Drug Facts Label headings as retrieval cues. They then studied and recalled drug facts from an aspirin label. Aspirin recall was greater when the prior labels were(More)
