BACKGROUND A single-nucleotide promoter polymorphism in the CD14 gene was associated with various inflammatory conditions. The present study sought to determine the frequency of the CD14 -159C-to-T polymorphism among subjects with periodontitis and healthy control individuals. METHODS A total of 70 patients with periodontal disease and 75 healthy controls were genotyped for the CD14 -159C-to-T polymorphism. Genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length… CONTINUE READING
