BACKGROUND Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is involved in the accumulation and activation of leukocytes in inflammatory sites through binding to beta2 integrins expressed on leukocytes. We investigated whether or not lipopolysaccharide (LPS) derived from the periodontopathic bacterium Porphyromonas gingiualis affects ICAM-1 expression on human… CONTINUE READING
