The bacteria that cause periodontitis may also play a part in the onset of pancreatic cancer, according to new research coming out of Scandinavia.
Researchers at the University of Helsinki and the Helsinki University Hospital, Finland, and the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden have been investigating the role of bacteria causing periodontitis in the development of oral and certain other cancers, as well as the link between periodontitis and cancer mortality on the population level.
Their latest study, published last month in the British Journal of Cancer, has for the first time proved the existence of a mechanism on the molecular level through which the bacteria associated with periodontitis, Treponema denticola (Td), may also have an effect on the onset of cancer.
