      Aim To investigate the molecular forms of salivary matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)‐8 in relation to periodontitis. Materials and Methods Molecular forms, degree of activation and fragmentation of neutrophilic and ...
    • Saliva and serum biomarkers in periodontitis and coronary artery disease 

      Lahdentausta, L; Paju, S; Mäntylä, P; Buhlin, K; Tervahartiala, T; Pietiäinen, M; Alfthan, H; Nieminen, M; Sinisalo, J; Sorsa, T; Pussinen, P (WileyTanska, 2018)
      Aim Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)‐8, MMP‐9, tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase (TIMP)‐1 and myeloperoxidase (MPO) participate in extracellular matrix breakdown both in periodontium and atherosclerotic plaques. ...
    • Smoking confounds the periodontal diagnostics using saliva biomarkers 

      Lahdentausta, Laura; Paju, Susanna; Mäntylä, Päivi; Buhlin, Kåre; Pietiäinen, Milla; Tervahartiala, Taina; Nieminen, Markku S; Sinisalo, Juha; Sorsa, Timo; Pussinen, Pirkko J (Wiley, 2018)
      Aim Smoking is a risk factor for periodontal disease because of its complex impact on the inflammatory response in the periodontium. We investigated the effect of smoking on salivary periodontal biomarkers, matrix ...
