OBJECTIVE Early detection of oral infections plays an important role for dental referral during progression of renal disease and during dialysis treatment in uraemic patients. This study investigated how oral health is related to uraemia in a group of uraemic patients in Stockholm, Sweden. MATERIAL AND METHODS This cross-sectional study assessed oral(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this observational study was to investigate the relationship between DNA damage in minor accessory salivary glands, hyposalivation, and inflammation in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). STUDY DESIGN DNA strand breaks and oxidative DNA lesions in salivary glands, inflammatory markers, and uremic state were measured in 79(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate correlations between levels of cytokines in secreted stimulated saliva in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and hyposalivation. STUDY DESIGN Seventy patients with clearance <20 mL/min/1.73 m(2) were evaluated; 40 were predialysis, 21 hemodialysis, and 9 peritoneal dialysis, and they were matched(More)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a complex disorder in which active intervention leads to longer survival expectancy. Oral diseases are complex disorders caused mainly by bacterial, fungal, or viral infections, where primary defense mechanisms are influenced. The most common complications seen in CKD patients are malnutrition, inflammation, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Early detection and treatment of local oral fungal infection (OFI) minimize the risk of overgrowth and more serious complications such as invasive infections. Generalized fungal infection increases both morbidity and mortality in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. This study reports the prevalence of ongoing OFI in patients with ESRD and(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic kidney disease is associated with inflammation, oxidative stress, malnutrition, poor oral health, and mouth dryness. The objective of this study was to evaluate effects of sea buckthorn oil (SBO) extract, which is rich in vitamins, phytochemicals, and polyunsaturated fatty acids, on oxidative stress, saliva production, and inflammation in(More)
