Evaluation of Resistin Levels in Saliva of Patients with Chronic Periodontitis and Healthy Subjects.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate resistin levels in the saliva of patients with chronic periodontitis, and healthy subjects.

METHODS:

Thirty-four subjects aged between 25 and 50 years were included and divided into healthy group (n = 19) and chronic periodontitis group (n = 15). The saliva levels of resistin were assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Comparisons of resistin levels between the two groups were made with the Mann-Whitney Test.

RESULTS:

The chronic periodontitis group showed significantly higher resistin levels than the control group (P = 0.001).

CONCLUSION:

The level of resistin in saliva might help to determine the inflammatory status of periodontal diseases.
