Periodontitis and AIDS

According to Japan's "Daily News" reported 11 Japanese university professor Ochiai Bangkang and Nagoya City University, Professor Okamoto, who is still carried out relevant research. Earlier studies have shown that immune cells lurking in the proliferation of AIDS virus in an enzyme called histone deacetylase under the action of the material is suppressed, once the role of this enzyme hindered, the virus becomes active by infection will be disease. On the other hand, the proliferation of periodontal pathogens in the process of producing large quantities of butyric acid, analysis showed that periodontitis patients the gap between the teeth and gums in healthy acid content is 20 times to 30 times.

Ochiai Bang Kang, who studied the acid and histone deacetylase interaction. They have latent HIV into immune cells with butyric acid bacteria culture fluid of periodontitis, the results confirm the rapid proliferation of HIV. As a result, the researchers confirmed that Dental Tips butyrate can inhibit histone deacetylase, which generates a large number of acid due to periodontitis can indeed to activate latent HIV.

According to reports, Japanese aged 25 and over 80% of people with varying degrees of periodontitis, while Japan also has a lot of HIV carriers. Ochiai Bangkang professor said that those who are not aware of their HIV-infected people, may be because the risk of periodontitis and disease. The researchers plan future through animal experiments and epidemiological investigations to confirm this.

Has been reported that periodontitis and diabetes, and heart disease, and results of this study showed that periodontitis may also activate latent HIV. Experts said the results may be a new awareness of the importance of maintaining oral hygiene opportunity.
