The presence and localization of PMN/neutrophil elastase and its endogenous inhibitor alpha 1-proteinase inhibitor (alpha 1 PI) were studied immunohistochemically in gingival tissue specimens collected from 9 adult periodontitis (AP) patients during flap surgery after the initial phase of periodontal therapy, and from 6 healthy controls with clinically-healthy periodontium upon surgical extraction of impacted third molars. In order to evaluate how periodontal tissue destructive events are… CONTINUE READING
