Osteoimmunology has developed as a separate science, emerging from the communication between the immune system and the skeletal system. New findings have emphasised the importance of bone marrow for immunological memory. With a focus on the maxillary and mandibular bone marrow within dentistry, we are creating the new research field of maxillo-mandibular osteoimmunology as a part of integrative complementary medicine.
In volumes I,II and III of the series on ‘cavity-forming osteolysis of the jawbone’, the authors describe this little-recognised, largely unknown pathology and its immunological-systemic associations, with over 600 coloured illustrations and more than 1,100 references.
With the new CaviTAU® ultrasound device, maxillo-mandibular osteoimmunology now has a radiation-free tool for detecting inflammatory foci in the jaw. These are characterised primarily by an overexpression of the inflammatory chemical messenger RANTES/CCL5. CaviTAU® is the next step in maxillo-mandibular osteoimmunology.
