Jeffrey Ebersole (Dental) co-authored “Biofilm Induced Profiles of Immune Response Gene Expression by Oral Epithelial Cells,” which examined the oral epithelial immunotranscriptome response patterns modulated by oral bacterial planktonic or biofilm challenge, and determined that a wide array of immune genes were regulated by oral bacterial challenge of epithelial cells that would be linked to the local activity of innate and adaptive immune response components in the gingival tissues. The article appeared in the Nov. 8 issue of Mol Oral Microbiol.

Ebersole also co-authored “Comparative analysis of expression of microbial sensing molecules in mucosal tissues with periodontal disease.” The study used a nonhuman primate model to evaluate the expression of these sensing molecules in gingival tissues, and appeared in the Nov. 15 issue of Immunobiology.
