A single nucleotide polymorphism in the promoter region of -1607 bp of the human MMP-1 gene has been found to be associated with an increased risk of various inflammatory diseases and cancer metastasis. This study aimed to evaluate the association between the MMP-1 promoter gene polymorphism and chronic periodontitis susceptibility and/or severity in a… CONTINUE READING
