Initial periodontal therapy reduced systemic and local 25-hydroxy vitamin D(3) and interleukin-1beta in patients with aggressive periodontitis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND 25-hydroxy vitamin D(3) is the major circulating metabolite of vitamin D. Elevated plasma 25-hydroxy vitamin D(3) levels were verified to be associated with generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP).
