Abstract

Periodontitis is a common chronic and destructive disease whose pathogenetic mechanisms remain unclear. Due to their sensitivity and global scale, proteomics studies offer the opportunity to uncover critical host and pathogen activity indicators and can elucidate clinically applicable biomarkers for improved diagnosis and treatment of the disease. This review summarizes the literature of proteomics studies on periodontitis and comprehensively discusses commonly found candidate biomarkers. Key considerations in the design of an experimental proteomics platform are also outlined. The applicability of protein biomarkers across the progression of periodontitis and unexplored areas of research are highlighted.
