Cyclooxygenase 2 gene polymorphisms and chronic periodontitis in a North Indian population: a pilot study

Abstract

PURPOSE Cyclooxygenase (COX) enzyme catalyzes the production of prostaglandins, which are important mediators of tissue destruction in periodontitis. Single nucleotide polymorphisms of COX2 enzyme have been associated with increasing susceptibility to inflammatory diseases. The present study evaluates the association of two single nucleotide polymorphisms… (More)
