Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is a potent proinflammatory cytokine that plays an essential role during the pathogenesis of periodontitis. However, the gene polymorphisms of IL-1α, IL-1β and IL-1RN and the relationship between these protein expressions in healthy people and patients with chronic periodontitis (CP) in China have not been fully elucidated.
