Nasal Immunization with P. gingivalis Surface Protein Antigen and Cholera Toxin Adjuvant Induces T Helper 2 Responses in Both Mucosal and Systemic Compartments
International Journal of Oral-Medical Sciences
It is well establishedthat Porphyromonas gingivalisis one of the major pathogens of adult periodontitis. P. gingivalis produces an outer membrane protein with a molecular mass of 40-kDa (40k-OMP). In the present study, in order to assess the potential for application of 40k-OMP in the development of an antiperiodontal disease vaccine, we analyzed 40k-OMP-specific CD4+ T helper (Th) cell responses induced in the mucosal as well as systemic compartments when 40k-OMP was administered nasally.
