BACKGROUND Major challenges in periodontology include understanding the pathophysiology, the interplay between various components of the host response, parallels with other diseases and identifying biomarkers of the disease. OBJECTIVES Four reviews were compiled with the aim of better understanding: (1) the role of polymorphic nuclear leucocytes (PMNs), i.e. neutrophils; (2) the function of cytokine networks in the host response; (3) whether parallels exist with rheumatoid arthritis (RA); and… CONTINUE READING
