AIM Tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. TNFalpha production is influenced by gene polymorphisms. The aim of this study was to evaluate links between genetic variants and chronic/aggressive periodontitis in a multivariate model. SUBJECTS One hundred and twenty-three periodontitis patients (chronic: n=54, aggressive: n=69) and 52 healthy controls without periodontitis were included in the study.
