Oral inflammation, a role for antimicrobial peptide modulation of cytokine and chemokine responses.


Acute and chronic inflammation commonly occurs throughout the oral cavity. The most common causes are physical damage and microbial infections, and less frequently immune reactions and malignant changes.
