Gingival crevicular fluid inflammatory mediators and bacteriology of gingivitis in nonhuman primates related to susceptibility to periodontitis.

Abstract

The hypothesis to be tested was that the microbiota and resulting local host inflammatory response characteristics in oral conditions of high levels of chronic gingival inflammation increases susceptibility to progressing periodontitis. This study used cynomolgus monkeys, Macaca fascicularis (nonhuman primates), with high and low levels of long-standing… (More)
