Significant associations between atherosclerosis and both Porphyromonas gingivalis, a major periodontopathogen, and the respiratory pathogen, Chlamydia pneumoniae, have been shown. Many individuals with evidence of atherosclerosis demonstrate seropositivity to these pathogens. The aim of the present study was to examine the atherogenic effect of repeated immunizations with either or both of these agents, and to determine if molecular mimicry of bacterial heat-shock protein (HSP), termed GroEL… Expand
Role for Porphyromonas gingivalis in the progression of atherosclerosis.
TLDR
Results from these studies confirm that the inflammatory response to P. gingivalis could exacerbate vascular inflammation via secreted cytokines and/or chemokines that ultimately modulate early atherogenesis that spontaneously develop atherosclerosis. Expand
Nasal or Oral Immunization with GroEL Attenuates Porphyromonas gingivalis-Induced Atherosclerosis
TLDR
It is suggested that oral or nasal immunization with rGroEL could be an effective vaccine for prevention of atherosclerosis accelerated by P.gingivalis. Expand
Nasal Immunization with Porphyromonas gingivalis Outer Membrane Protein Decreases P. gingivalis-Induced Atherosclerosis and Inflammation in Spontaneously Hyperlipidemic Mice
TLDR
It is suggested that systemic infection with P. gingivalis accelerates atherosclerosis in Apoeshl mice, and 40-kDa OMP plus CT may be an effective nasal vaccine for the reduction of atherosclerotic plaque accumulation in the aortic sinus and the serum levels of cytokines and chemokines compared to nonimmunized animals. Expand
High Antibody Levels to P. gingivalis in Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
Variation in strain type with respect to serum IgG response in several CV and periodontal categories is shown, providing further support for the role of the immune response to P. gingivalis in the relationship between periodontic disease and CVD. Expand
Predominant immunoreactivity of Porphyromonas gingivalis heat shock protein in autoimmune diseases.
TLDR
Seroreactivity to Pep19 of P. gingivalis HSP60, an oral pathogen, was predominant in patients with autoimmune disease with ongoing periodontal disease, and was consistently recognized by the serum samples of the four disease groups. Expand
Presence of Periodontopathic Bacteria DNA in Atheromatous Plaques from Coronary and Carotid Arteries
TLDR
Porphyromonas gingivalis DNA is frequently found in atheromatous plaques of patients with periodontitis, and more research should be conducted to prove if this periopathogen may have an impact on endothelium of patients at risk of atherosclerosis. Expand
Pathogens and atherosclerosis: update on the potential contribution of multiple infectious organisms to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
TLDR
The strength of the data for individual or groups of pathogens with regard to atherosclerosis pathogenesis and their potential contribution by direct or indirect mechanisms are evaluated and whether the established associations are supportive of the infectious disease paradigm is discussed. Expand
Porphyromonas gingivalis promotes Th17 inducing pathways in chronic periodontitis.
TLDR
The data unveil multiple pathways by which P. gingivalis may orchestrate chronic inflammation, providing insights into interventional strategies, and identifies immune cell-dependent mechanisms whereby bacterial challenge drives persistent destructive inflammation. Expand
Intracellular survival and vascular cell-to-cell transmission of Porphyromonas gingivalis
TLDR
The results suggest that the persistence of vascular tissue-embedded P. gingivalis is due to its ability to transmit among different cell types, the first communication demonstrating the intercellular transmission as a likely mechanism converting latent intracellular bacteria from state of dormancy to a viable state allowing for persistence of an inflammatory pathogen in vascular tissue. Expand
Resveratrol inhibits Porphyromonas gingivalis lipopolysaccharide-induced endothelial adhesion molecule expression by suppressing NF-κB activation
TLDR
It is suggested that resveratrol significantly attenuates the P. gingivalis LPS-induced monocyte adhesion to the endothelium by suppressing the expression of the NF-κB-dependent cell adhesion molecules, suggesting its therapeutic role in periodontal pathogen-induced vascular inflammation. Expand

Porphyromonas gingivalis Infection Accelerates the Progression of Atherosclerosis in a Heterozygous Apolipoprotein E–Deficient Murine Model
TLDR
Evidence is provided that long-term systemic challenge with Porphyromonas gingivalis, an oral pathogen, can accelerate atherogenic plaque progression. Expand
Modulation of the antibody response by Porphyromonas gingivalis and Fusobacterium nucleatum in a mouse model.
TLDR
The results of the present study have demonstrated a systemic Th1/Th2 response in mice immunized with P. gingivalis and/or F. nucleatum and the inhibition of neutrophil phagocytosis of immune serum-opsonized P. fusobacterium nucleatum was modulated by the presence of anti-F.ucleatum antibodies.

Cross-reactivity of GroEL antibodies with human heat shock protein 60 and quantification of pathogens in atherosclerosis.
TLDR
The hypothesis that in some patients, cross-reactivity of the immune response to bacterial HSPs including those ofperiodontal pathogens, with arterial endothelial cells expressing hHSP60 may be a possible mechanism for the association between atherosclerosis and periodontal infection is supported.

Oral Infection With a Periodontal Pathogen Accelerates Early Atherosclerosis in Apolipoprotein E–Null Mice
TLDR
Oral infection with P gingivalis accelerates early atherosclerosis, and uncovering the underlying mechanisms is critical for the design of preventive and therapeutic strategies targeting atherosclerotic vascular disease and its sequelae. Expand
Antibodies to Periodontal Pathogens Are Associated With Coronary Heart Disease
TLDR
The association of coronary heart disease (CHD) and serology of periodontitis in a random sample of men and serum IgG-antibodies to Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans and Porphyromonas gingivalis suggests that periodontal infection or response of the host against the infection may play a role in the pathogenesis of CHD.

Innate Immune Recognition of Invasive Bacteria Accelerates Atherosclerosis in Apolipoprotein E–Deficient Mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that immunization to control P gingivalis–elicited periodontal disease concomitantly prevents P gedivalis-accelerated atherosclerosis. Expand
Effect of Fusobacterium nucleatum on the T and B cell responses to Porphyromonas gingivalis in a mouse model
TLDR
F. nucleatum immunization does not affect the splenic T cell cytokine response to P. gingivalis, and cross‐reactive antibodies to other oral microorganisms are found to be negligible. Expand

C pneumoniae infection was observed in endothelial cells, macrophages and in smooth Muscle cells that had migrated into the atheromatous plaque, as well as in smooth muscle cells and small arteries in the media underlying the athersomatrous plaques. Expand
