Recent clinical and anthropological findings indicate that the conventional concept of the pathogenesis of periodontal disease requires review. The periodontal lesion has been defined as a generalised horizontal loss of crestal bone resulting from host immune and inflammatory responses triggered by the action of commensal bacteria, and the extension of(More)
The nuclear restructuring that occurs between insemination and full pronuclear formation in pig eggs is accompanied by posttranslational changes to specific egg proteins. Sperm penetration begins in vitro at 3 hr postinsemination (hpi). By 5 hr, decondensing sperm heads and anaphase II plates are observed in 50% of eggs, and, by 8 hpi, both male and female(More)
1. Quantitative O-deacylation of phospholipids has been achieved by incubation with a reagent containing monomethylamine, methanol and water. The reaction is primarily an O-.N-transacylation with N-methyl fatty acid amides being formed. 2. The reagent can be removed easily by volatilization and under defined conditions no secondary decomposition of the(More)
The complex lipids of the naturally-occurring general-fatty-acid-auxotroph Butyrivibrio S2 [Hazlewood & Dawson (1979) J. Gen. Microbiol. 112, 15-27] grown with palmitic acid as sole fatty-acid supplement have been investigated and some have been isolated in a state of purity and analysed. The majority are phospholipids (84%) and many contain galactose. They(More)
Periodontitis is generally considered to be a consequence of an unfavourable host-parasite interaction in which bacteria are the determinants of disease. An intense search continues for the bacteria, specific or non-specific, that are responsible for periodontitis and various forms of the periodontal diseases have been associated with, and are widely(More)
Increases in the distance from the cemento-enamel junction to the alveolar crest (CEJ-AC) have often been attributed to senile atrophy of the bone or to the effects of periodontitis, without reference to the condition of the alveolar crest. This study investigated the relationship between CEJ-AC distance, tooth wear, gender, site of the CEJ-AC measurements,(More)

The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG) was the result of ischemia resulting from three predisposing factors. Vascular stasis, stress, and smoking were said to combine and induce severe vascular constriction at the end arterial locations of the gingivae, resulting in necrosis of the part. The(More)
