From Abstract:
compared to former and nonsmokers, suggesting that smoking impairs periodontal healing. As the healing and microbial response of former smokers is comparable to that of nonsmokers, smoking cessation...This study investigated the effect of cigarette smoking on 143 patients' clinical

From Abstract:
The lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and fimbriae of Porphyromonas gingivalis play important roles in periodontal inflammation and pathogenesis. We investigated fimbriae and LPS from several P. gingivalis strains in terms of relative dependence on Toll-like receptor (TLR) signalling partners or accessory

ChoiJ-I; SchifferleRE; YoshimuraF.; KimB-W
From Abstract:
The effect of immunization with either a Porphyromonas gingivalis fimbrial protein, a capsular polysaccharide, or a capsular polysaccharide-fimbrial protein conjugate vaccine were compared in hu-PBL.... gingivalis could potentially be developed as a vaccine against periodontal infection by P. gingivalis.
