Porphyromonas gingivalis, porte d’entrée vers la maladie d’Alzheimer ?

Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia in the world and a major public health issue of the 21st century. Its progressive appearance disrupts memory, cognitive functions and leads to loss of autonomy in affected patients. The main components are the appearance of amyloïd plaques, hyper-phosphorylation of Tau proteins, neuro-inflammation and increased oxidative stress. However, it is estimated that one-third of the world’s cases of Alzheimer’s disease could be attributed to potentially modifiable risk factors. We will study a possible bacterial etiology related to an oral infection in the development of the disease by focusing on a particular bacterium, Porphyromonas gingivalis.
