Progression of periodontal disease and interleukin-10 gene polymorphism.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Interleukin-10 is a key immunoregulatory cytokine that may be of significance in the immunopathogenesis of chronic inflammatory diseases such as periodontal disease. Molecular genetic studies have defined a number of haplotypes that may be associated with differing levels of interleukin-10 secretion. The present study investigated… (More)
