5:15pm – 5:35pm – Th17 cytokines in saliva and serum in Chronic Periodontitis
Presented by Dr Nidhi Medara
Chronic Periodontitis is common, complex disease modified by the immune system. Understanding the host response is a key factor in understanding disease etiology. There is a lack of longitudinal data in humans on the role of cytokines in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. The results from a 1 year longitudinal study on the effect of periodontal treatment on 15 cytokines in serum and saliva are presented here.
Review the role of cytokines in periodontal disease
Evaluate how periodontal treatment modifies systemic and local cytokine profiles
Appreciate the complexity of the immune system in the pathogenesis of periodontitis
