Variation in the CXCR1 gene (IL8RA) is not associated with susceptibility to chronic periodontitis
(Journal of Negative Results in BioMedicine, 2011-11-04) [Artigo]
Background: The chemokine receptor 1 CXCR-1 (or IL8R-alpha) is a specific receptor for the interleukin 8 (IL-8), which is chemoattractant for neutrophils and has an important role in the inflammatory response. The polymorphism ...

Association between interleukin-8 levels and chronic periodontal disease
(Medicine (United States), 2017-06-01) [Artigo]
Background: Current publications present contradictory findings regarding interleukin-8 (IL-8) levels in patients with chronic periodontitis (CP). This systematic review compile evidences of the IL8 mRNA and protein levels ...
Family-Based Genetic Association for Molar-Incisor Hypomineralization
(Caries Research, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
Despite some evidence of genetic and environmental factors on molar-incisor hypomineralization (MIH), its aetiology remains unclear. This family-based genetic association study aimed more comprehensively to investigate the ...
Inducible nitric oxide synthase polymorphisms and nitric oxide levels in individuals with chronic periodontitis
(International Journal of Molecular Sciences, 2017-06-15) [Artigo]
This study aimed to investigate whether the –1026(A>C)(rs2779249) and +2087(A>G)(2297518) polymorphisms in the NOS2gene were associated with chronic periodontitis (CP) and with salivary levels of nitrite (NO2–) and/or ...
Association of Interleukin 4 Gene Polymorphisms With Dental Implant Loss
(Implant Dentistry, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between interleukin 4 (IL4) polymorphisms/haplotypes and dental implant loss.Materials and Methods: Two hundred and seventy eight (n = 278) unrelated ...
Association of Haplotypes in the CXCR2 Gene with Periodontitis in a Brazilian Population
(Dna and Cell Biology, 2010-04-01) [Artigo]
CXCR-2 is a receptor of interleukin-8, which is involved in acute and chronic inflammatory processes. Polymorphisms in the CXCR2 gene have been associated with chronic inflammatory conditions. The aim of this study was to ...
Elevated micronucleus frequency in patients with type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia and periodontitis
(Mutagenesis, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
The over-production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) can cause oxidative damage to a large number of molecules, including DNA, and has been associated with the pathogenesis of several disorders, such as diabetes mellitus ...
Serum lipid levels in patients with periodontal disease: A meta-analysis and meta-regression
(Journal of Clinical Periodontology, 2017-12-01) [Artigo]
Aim: Several papers have considered the potential relationship between periodontitis and lipid parameters. The present systematic review, meta-analysis and meta-regression studies focused on investigating whether serum ...
Multifunctional EuYVO4 nanoparticles coated with mesoporous silica
(Journal of Luminescence, 2016-11-01) [Artigo]
Mesoporous structures are interesting materials for the incorporation of dyes, drugs, and luminescent systems, leading to materials with important multifunctionalities. In a very unique way, these guest/host materials ...
