    • Vernal Astudillo, Rolando; Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta; Pujol, Myriam; Díaz Guerra, Eva; Silva, Augusto; Sanz, Mariano; García Sanz, José (Blackwell Munksgaard, 2014)
      Aim: Destructive periodontitis is associated with a Th1–Th17 immune response and activation of RANKL-induced osteoclasts. In addition, Porphyromonas gingivalis K1 and K2 serotypes induce a strong Th1–Th17 response. This ...
    • Alvarez Rivas, Carla; Benítez Cravero, Alvaro; Rojas, Leticia; Pujol, Myriam; Carvajal Pavez, Paola; Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (Univ Sao Paulo Fac Odontologia Bauru, 2015)
      In Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, different serotypes have been described based on LPS antigenicity. Recently, our research group has reported a differential immunogenicity when T lymphocytes were stimulated with ...

    • Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta; Monasterio, Gustavo; Pujol, Myriam; Rojas, Leticia; Alvarez, Carla; Carvajal, Paola; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (Elsevier Ltd, 2017)
      Objective: In Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, different serotypes have been described based on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigenicity. When T lymphocytes were stimulated with these serotypes, different patterns of ...
    • Muñoz Bustamante, Marcela Victoria. (Universidad de Chile, 2014)
      Durante las periodontitis, la respuesta inmune del hospedero involucra la producción de citoquinas, metaloproteinasas de la matriz, quimioquinas y receptores de quimioquinas que determinan la constitución de un ambiente ...
    • Saavedra Pérez de Arce, José Francisco (Universidad de Chile, 2014)
      Las periodontitis son un conjunto de enfermedades de naturaleza inflamatoria y etiología infecciosa. El biofilm subgingival, constituido principalmente por bacterias anaerobias Gram-negativas, es el factor etiológico ...
    • Monasterio, Gustavo; Guevara, José; Ibarra, Juan; Castillo, Francisca; Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Alvarez, Carla; Cafferata, Emilio; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (Springer Verlag, 2018)
      Objectives Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by tooth-supporting tissue destruction, which is elicited by the host’s immune response triggered against periodonto-pathogen bacteria. During ...
    • Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta Azucena; Cafferata Chea, Emilio Alfredo; Díaz, Nicolás I.; Peña, Miguel A.; González Osuna, Luis; Rojas, Carolina; Sierra Cristancho, Alfredo José; Cárdenas, Angélica M.; Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando Marcelo (Hindawi, 2021)
      Natural killer T (NKT) cells constitute a unique subset of T lymphocytes characterized by specifically interacting with antigenic glycolipids conjugated to the CD1d receptor on antigen-presenting cells. Functionally, NKT ...
    • Sansores España, Daniel; Carrillo Ávila, Arelly; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta Azucena; Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Martínez Aguilar, Víctor (Medicina Oral, España, 2021)
      Background: Alzheimer's disease (AD), the main cause of dementia in the adult population, is characterized by a progressive loss of cognitive function. It is considered that neuroinflammation plays a fundamental role in ...
    • Rojas, Leticia; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta; Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Alvarez, Carla; Monasterio, Gustavo; Rojas, Carolina; Carvajal, Paola; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (Elsevier Ltd, 2018)
      Objective: In Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, different serotypes have been described based on LPS antigenicity. Mixed infection with the different A. actinomycetemcomitans serotypes is frequent in periodontitis ...
    • Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Yáñez Figueroa, Juan Pablo; Álvarez, Carla; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta; Hernández Ríos, Emma; Sanz, Mariano; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (2014)
      Aim: Different serotypes of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans have been described based on the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-O-polysaccharide antigenicity. In turn, a distinct effect of A. actinomycetemcomitans serotypes ...
    • Díaz Zúñiga, Jaime; Melgar Rodríguez, Samanta; Alvarez, C.; Monasterio, G.; Benítez, A.; Ciuchi, P.; Díaz, C.; Mardones, J.; Escobar, A.; Sanz, M.; Vernal Astudillo, Rolando (Blackwell Munksgaard, 2015)
      & Sons Ltd. Background and Objective: Based on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigenicity, different Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans serotypes have been described. Serotype b strains have demonstrated a stronger capacity ...
