      Background: Encapsulation of Porphyromonas gingivalis has been demonstrated as responsible of several host immunological changes, which have been associated with the pathogenesis of periodontitis. Using a murine model of ...
    • Morales, Alicia; Carvajal, Paola; Silva, Nora; Hernández, Marcela; Godoy González, Claudia Andrea; Rodríguez, Gonzalo; Cabello Ibacache, Rodrigo Antonio; García Sesnich, Jocelyn Nata; Hoare, Anilei; Díaz, Patricia I.; Gamonal Aravena, Jorge Antonio (Amer Physical Soc., 2016)
      Background: Probiotics are living microorganisms that provide beneficial effects for the host when administered in proper quantities. The aim of this double-masked placebo-controlled parallel-arm randomized clinical trial ...
    • Hernández Ríos, Patricia; Espinoza Santander, Iris; Salinas, Macarena; Rodríguez Castro, Fernando; Baeza, Mauricio; Hernández, Marcela (BMC, 2018-06-19)
      Background: Many gingival lesions are not induced by plaque. The aim of this study was to analyze the frequency of biopsied non-plaque-induced gingival lesions (NPIGL) in a Chilean population. Methods: One thousand ...
    • Garrido, Mauricio; Cárdenas, Angélica M.; Astorga, Jessica; Quinlan, Francisca; Valdés, Macarena; Chaparro, Alejandra; Carvajal, Paola; Pussinen, Pirkko; Huamán-Chipana, Patricia; Jalil Milad, Jorge; Hernández, Marcela (Elsevier Inc., 2019)
      Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess whether apical lesions are associated with inflammatory serum markers of cardiovascular risk, especially high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), in young adults. ...
    • Hidalgo, Christian; Stoore, Caroll; Hernández, Marcela; Paredes, Rodolfo (BMC, 2020)
      Polyparasitism occurs when animals harbour multiple parasites concomitantly. It is a common occurrence but is generally understudied in wild and domestic animals. Fasciola hepatica and Echinococcus granulosus, which are ...
    • Correa, Felipe; Stoore, Caroll; Horlacher, Pamina; Jiménez, Mauricio; Hidalgo, Christian; Rojas, Cristian A.; Barros, Guilherme Figueiredo; Ferreira, Henrique Bunselmeyer; Hernández, Marcela; Navarro Cabrera, Gonzalo; Paredes, Rodolfo (Public library science, 2018-05-17)
      Cystic echinococcosis (CE), a parasitic disease caused by the cestode Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato (s.l.), is a worldwide zoonotic infection. Although endemic in Chile, information on the molecular characteristics ...
    • Cafferata, Emilio; Terraza Aguirre, Claudia; Barrera, Romina; Faúndez, Nicolás; González, Nicolás; Rojas, Carolina; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta; Hernández, Marcela; Carvajal, Paola; Cortez, Cristian; González, Fermín; Covarrubias, Cristian; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (Wiley, 2020)
      Aim T lymphocytes play a central role during the pathogenesis of periodontitis, and the imbalance between the pathogenic T-helper type 17 (Th17) and protective T-regulatory (Treg) lymphocytes determines the tooth-supporting ...
    • Witker Jiménez, Constanza; Carvajal Aguilera, Daniela; Hernández, Marcela; Valenzuela Ahumada, Fernando; Astorga, Jessica; Fernández, Alejandra (Elsevier, 2021)
      Background: Psoriasis and periodontitis are immunologically mediated chronic inflammatory diseases. Epidemiologic evidence has linked both; however, the change of markers in gingival crevicular fluid has been poorly ...
    • Hernández, Marcela; Baeza Paredes, Mauricio; Contreras Balbontín, Johanna; Sorsa, Timo; Tervahartiala, Taina; Valdés Salgado, Macarena; Chaparro, Alejandra; Hernández Ríos, Patricia (MDPI, 2020)

    • Hidalgo, Christian; Stoore, Caroll; Strull, Karen; Franco, Carmen; Corrêa, Felipe; Jiménez, Mauricio; Hernández, Marcela; Lorenzatto, Karina; Ferreira, Henrique B.; Galanti Garrone, Norbel; Paredes, Rodolfo (Public Library of Science, 2019)
      Background Cystic echinococcosis is caused by the metacestode of the zoonotic flatworm Echinococcus granulosus. Within the viscera of the intermediate host, the metacestode grows as a unilocular cyst known as hydatid cyst. ...
    • Hernández Ríos, Patricia; Pussinen, Pirkko J.; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando; Hernández, Marcela (Frontiers Media SA, 2017)
      Oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of a variety of inflammatory disorders. Apical periodontitis (AP) usually results in the formation of an osteolytic apical lesion (AL) caused by the immune response to ...
