2006 11:41 Uhr Seite 29 Bacterial Invasion 29 Bacterial Invasion Into Tissue? In patients with a compromised immune response, for example in cases of early onset, aggressive periodontitis (p. 96), bacteria with pathogenic potential have the ability to invade the cells of the pocket epithelium and the subepithelial connective tissue, and to remain viable there for varying periods of time. This usually occurs only in the depth of the pockets where the bacteria can avoid the infiltrate (defense), which is usually located close to the gingival margin.

The periodontopathic bacteria (p. 33) produce virulence factors (leukotoxins from Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, lipopolysaccharides and enzymes), which can initially shut down the chemotactic guidance of defense cells (e. , PMN) or even kill PMNs. With time, the invading microorganisms are recognized by the activated immune system and killed. If tissue invasion is mild, small areas of necrotic tissue resorption may result, but if the bacterial invasion is massive, acute suppurative abscesses can result (Allenspach-Petrzilka & Guggenheim 1983, Christensson et al.
