OBJECTIVES There is controversial evidence regarding the levels of antioxidant molecules in type 2 diabetes periodontitis patients. Thus, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the gene expression of antioxidant enzymes in the gingival tissue of poorly and well-controlled type 2 diabetic subjects with chronic periodontitis (CP). DESIGN Gingival biopsies were harvested from systemically and periodontally healthy subjects (n=12), systemically healthy subjects with CP (n=15), well… CONTINUE READING
