Our purpose was to investigate a possible relationship between severe early childhood caries (S-ECC) and polymorphism of the mannose binding lectin gene and investigate the role of allele variant as a possible factor in the susceptibility to S-ECC. Sixty-two Chinese children with S-ECC and 68 caries-free control children were included in this study. Genomic DNA was extracted from buccal epithelial cells of each individual. The identification of MBL B allele was performed by restriction fragment… CONTINUE READING
