High levels of soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in crevicular fluid of periodontitis patients with plaque.

Abstract

The intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is a membrane-bound molecule involved in cell-cell adhesive interactions which is upregulated on inflammatory epithelial cells. The levels of soluble ICAM-1 (sICAM-1) shed into the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) were studied in healthy patients and patients with gingivitis, adult periodontitis or rapidly… (More)
