Salivary IgA and Total Protein in Human Subjects with Oral Lichen Planus and Squamous Cell Carcinoma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.230
Synopsis: 
The study aimed to compare salivary immunoglobulin A (IgA) and total protein (TP) in patients suffering from oral lichen planus (OLP) and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), against healthy control. Salivary total protein was found to be higher in OSCC patients than OLP patients but the IgA level was similar in these patients.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare salivary immunoglobulin A (IgA) and total protein (TP) in patients suffering from oral lichen planus (OLP) and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), against healthy control.

Salivary Parameters (Salivary Flow, pH and Buffering Capacity) in Stimulated Saliva of Mexican Elders 60 Years Old and Older

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.036
Pages: 
758–65
Synopsis: 
Chewing-stimulated saliva (paraffin method) was collected and the salivary flow rate, pH and buffer capacity were measured in a group of Mexican elders. We found that salivary parameters varied in relation to selected socio-economic, clinical and behavioural variables.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare a limited array of chewing-stimulated saliva features (salivary flow, pH and buffer capacity) in a sample of elderly Mexicans with clinical, socio-demographic and socio-economic variables.

Evaluation of hβD-1 and hβD-2 Levels in Saliva of Patients with Oral Mucosal Diseases

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.315
Pages: 
230–8
Synopsis: 
A chromatographic method was applied to determine the amount of human beta-defensin 1 and 2 (hβD-1 and hβD- 2) in human saliva of patients with oral mucosal diseases before and after treatments and compared with controls.

                                                                        ABSTRACT

Objective: This study aimed to determine a possible correlation between oral mucosal disease and salivary concentrations of the antimicrobial peptides human beta-defensin-1 (hβD-1) and human betadefensin-2 (hβD-2).
