BACKGROUND/AIMS Different cytokine genotypes have been described in periodontal disease. The aim of the present study was to investigate the genetic association of two previously described interleukin-10 (IL-10) polymorphisms in patients with aggressive (AP) and chronic periodontitis (CP) and to investigate possible associations with clinical manifestations. METHODS Based on clinical parameters and radiographs, 23 patients with CP and 18 patients with AP were included in the study… CONTINUE READING
