Gum disease (P.Gingivalis) and rheumatoid arthritis
I found this old post from 10 years ago
I don’t even know if the Original Poster is still around, but there has been some proper science since, by a number of researchers, in the UK notably by Prof Patrick Venables at Oxford Uni’s Kennedy Rheumatology Institute, however recognition let alone understanding & acceptance tends to always lag. (Let’s face it, even 10 years after h.Pylori was established as the main cause of chronic ulcers, doctors were still prescribing PPIs and carbonates and asking patients to consider stress reduction techniques to treat the defect).
If you Google “Heightened immune response to autocitrullinated Porphyromonas gingivalis peptidylarginine deiminase: a potential mechanism for breaching immunologic tolerance in rheumatoid arthritis” + BMJ
you should get the full article on the science & mechanism.
Kennedy institute receives a grant from Versus Arthritis, does anyone know how to get an update from them on where they are with this?
Or has anyone heard /investigated anything further?
