OBJECTIVE Resistin is an adipocytokine, which have been studied for its role in insulin resistance and recently in inflammation. The present study was designed to study the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum levels of resistin in obese and non-obese subjects with and without periodontitis and to further study the association of single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) -420 with these levels. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 90 subjects were divided based on gingival index (GI), probing… CONTINUE READING
