This paper describes a study of whether or not the amounts of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) are correlated with periodontal clinical measures. A sensitive ELISA was developed to measure IL-6 in GCF. Two male and 3 female adult subjects with periodontal disease were examined at their first appointments, after 3 months, and after 6 months. Data were obtained on plaque index (PI), bleeding index (BI), probing depth (PD), and on the IL-6 content of GCF samples from 16… CONTINUE READING
