PURPOSE Elderly people are thought to be more susceptible to periodontal disease due to reduced immune function associated with aging. However, little information is available on the nature of immune responses against putative periodontal pathogens in geriatric patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the serum IgG antibody responses to six(More)
PURPOSE At present, information regarding periodontal disease in geriatric patients is scarce. The purpose of this study was to quantify the periodontal pathogens present in the saliva of Korean geriatric patients and assess the relationship between the bacterial levels and the periodontal condition.

OBJECTIVES Molecular mechanism of the pathogenicity of Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis), a suspected endodontic pathogen, has not yet been adequately elucidated due to limited information on its virulence factors. Here we report the identification of in vivo expressed antigens of E. faecalis by using a novel immunoscreening technique called(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate implant-supported restoration as a technique for restoring missing teeth in patients with aplastic anemia. Recurrent bleeding from wound sites leads to persistent release of iron in the tissue. Excessive iron in tissue is related to clinical findings, including fibrosis, poor wound healing, and high level of(More)
