Abstract

Adult periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects over 49 million people in the USA alone. Porphyromonas (formerly Bacteroides) gingivalis, a Gram-negative anaerobe, has a diverse repertoire of virulence factors that may be involved in the induction or progression of periodontitis.
