    ABSTRACT: Objectives: Considering the evident relationship between periodontitis and cardiovascular diseases in humans, we aimed to study the in vitro vascular reactivity of aorta rings prepared from rats with ligature-induced periodontitis. Methods: Seven days after the induction of unilateral periodontitis, the animals were euthanised; rings were prepared from the descending abdominal aortas and mounted in tissue baths for the in vitro measurement of the isometric force responses to norepinephrine (NE) and acetylcholine (ACh), as well as in the presence of inhibitors of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and cycloxygenase (COX) isoenzymes. Aortic COX and NOS gene expressions were analysed by RT-PCR, as well as protein COX-2 expression by Western blot. Results: Periodontitis resulted in significant alveolar bone loss and did not affect arterial pressure. However, both NE-induced contraction and ACh-induced relaxation were significantly decreased and related to the presence of endothelium. Diminished eNOS and augmented COX-2 and iNOS expressions were found in the aortas from rats with periodontitis, and the pharmacological inhibition of COX-2 or iNOS improved the observed vasomotor deficiencies. Conclusions: We can thus conclude that periodontitis induces significant endothelial dysfunction in rat aorta which is characterized by decreased eNOS expression and mediated by upregulated iNOS and COX-2 products.

    ABSTRACT: BMP-2 induces osteoblast differentiation and activates osteoclast formation. Here, we investigated the role of Smad1, a molecule that signals downstream of BMP-2, in mediating the effects of BMP-2 on osteoclast differentiation induced by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) in osteoblasts. The effects of 1,25(OH)2D3 and BMP-2 in osteoclasts were examined using polymerase chain reaction and Western blotting to measure changes in target gene and protein expression. Immunostaining was carried out to investigate the localization of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) in the nucleus in response to BMP-2. Stimulation with both 1,25(OH)2D3 and BMP-2 resulted in significantly greater osteoclast formation and receptor activator of nuclear factor κB ligand (RANKL) mRNA expression compared to stimulation with 1,25(OH)2D3 alone. In addition, expression of the VDR protein was increased, enhancing the activity of 1,25(OH)2D3. Interestingly, knockdown of Smad1 resulted in reduced osteoclast formation, RANKL mRNA expression, and VDR protein expression compared with control cells. Costimulation with 1,25(OH)2D3 and BMP-2 enhanced VDR localization in the nucleus. We found that BMP-2 induced Smad1 activation, thereby influencing the localization of VDR in the nucleus in the presence of 1,25(OH)2D3 and resulting in increased RANKL mRNA expression. These effects ultimately resulted in enhanced osteoclast differentiation. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the in vitro effectiveness of APDI with a 660nm laser combined with methylene blue (MB), toluidine blue ortho (TBO) and malachite green (MG) dyes to inactivate Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923) biofilms in compact and cancellous bone specimens. Eighty specimens of compact and 80 of cancellous bone were contaminated with a standard suspension of the microorganism and incubated for 14 days at 37°C to form biofilms. After this period, the specimens were divided into groups (n=10) according to established treatment: PS-L- (control - no treatment); PSmb+L-, PStbo+L-, PSmg+L- (only MB, TBO or MG for 5min in the dark); PS-L+ (only laser irradiation for 180s); and APDImb, APDItbo and APDImg (APDI with MB, TBO or MG for 180s). The findings were statistically analyzed by ANOVA at 5% significance levels. All experimental treatments showed significant reduction of logCFU/mL S. aureus biofilms when compared with the control group for compact and cancellous bones specimens; the APDI group's treatment was more effective. The APDI carried out for the compact specimens showed better results when compared with cancellous specimens at all times of application. For the group of compact bone, APDImg showed greater reductions in CFU/mL (4.46log10). In the group of cancellous bone, the greatest reductions were found in the APDImb group (3.06log10). APDI with methylene blue, toluidine blue ortho and malachite green dyes and a 660nm laser proved to be effective in the inactivation of S. aureus biofilms formed in compact and cancellous bone.
