Transforming growth factor-beta 1 expression in the peri-implant soft tissues of healthy and failing dental implants.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) is composed of a family of multifunctional polypeptide growth factors involved in embryogenesis, inflammation, regulation of immune response, angiogenesis, wound healing, and extracellular matrix formation. TGF-beta1 is the most common isoform found in human tissues. A role of TGF-beta in the… (More)
