The oxidative metabolism of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) in rapidly progressive periodontitis (RPP, n = 19), localized juvenile periodontitis (LJP, n = 10), adults periodontitis (AP, n = 10) and healthy control subjects (HS, n = 39) was compared using the luminol chemiluminescence (CL) method. Possible influences of the isolation procedure on CL were… CONTINUE READING
