Periodontal Inflammatory Burden and Salivary Matrix Metalloproteinase-8 Concentration Among Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease at the Predialysis Stage.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aim of the present study is to compare periodontal inflammatory burden related to the salivary matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-8 concentration among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at the predialysis stage. METHODS Salivary samples from 118 predialysis patients were assayed for MMP-8 by immunofluorometric assay. Of the patients… (More)
