The aim of this study was to perform a meta-analysis to evaluated the association between interleukin-1β (IL-1β) C(3953/4)T polymorphism and chronic periodontitis (CP). Systematic searches of electronic databases and hand searching of references were performed, including PubMed, Embase and Web of Science. The pooled odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (95%CIs) were calculated. Publication bias was tested by Begg's funnel plot and Egger's regression test. Sensitivity analysis was… CONTINUE READING
