The aim of the present study was to evaluate the levels and correlation of human S100A12 and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum in chronic periodontitis (CP) subjects with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). A total of 44 subjects were divided into three groups: group 1 had 10 periodontally(More)
AIM A highly-regulated form of programmed cell death is apoptosis, and its perturbation has been associated with periodontal disease. Caspase-3 is one of the key executioners of apoptosis. The present study was designed to evaluate and correlate the levels of caspase-3 in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum in participants with clinically-healthy(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare periodontal health status in individuals with and without Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS A total of 58 individuals with AD and 60 cognitively normal (ND) adult individuals, ranging in age from 50 to 80 years, were assessed for periodontal health status. Individuals with AD were further divided as mild, moderate, and severe, based(More)
BACKGROUND Simvastatin (SMV) assists in bone regeneration and has an anti-inflammatory effect when delivered or applied locally. The present clinical trial is designed to investigate the effectiveness of 1.2-mg SMV as a local drug delivery system as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) for the treatment of Class II furcation defects. METHODS(More)
AIM To evaluate the clinical and microbiological effects of systemic levofloxacin (LFX) in subjects with Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans-associated chronic periodontitis (AA-ACP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Subjects with severe periodontitis with subgingival detection of A. actinomycetemcomitans were randomly divided into two treatment groups; a test(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the adjunctive clinical effects of the systemic administration of ornidazole (ORN) in the full-mouth scaling and root planing (SRP) of individuals with moderate-to-advanced chronic periodontitis. METHODS Fifty-eight individuals presenting ≥12 teeth with probing depth (PD) ≥4 mm were selected.(More)
OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND The objectives were to compare periodontal status between subjects with and without Parkinson's disease (PKD) to determine the influence of PKD on periodontal disease. This study was conducted to evaluate the relationship of periodontal status with severity of PKD. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was conducted on 45 subjects with(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), a second-generation platelet concentrate, and atorvastatin (ATV), a potent member of the statin group, are known to promote tissue regeneration. The current study is designed to evaluate combined efficacy of PRF and 1.2% ATV gel with open flap debridement (OFD) in treatment of intrabony defects (IBDs) in individuals(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this randomized clinical trial was to evaluate the clinical and microbiological effects of systemic administration of roxithromycin (RXM) as an adjunct to non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) in the treatment of individuals with moderate to severe chronic periodontitis (CP). METHODS 70 individuals (38 males and 32 females, aged(More)
BACKGROUND An antiplaque agent with minimal side effects that can be used as an effective adjunct to mechanical plaque control is needed. The current study is designed to evaluate efficacy of triphala (TRP) mouthwash in reduction of plaque and gingivitis. METHODS Ninety individuals with chronic generalized gingivitis were randomly assigned to three(More)
