Abstract

Chronic periodontitis is the most prevalent oral inflammatorydisease that affect teeth supporting tissues in response to microbialinfection. A secretor is aterm applied to anyone who secret his/herblood type antigen into their body fluids as saliva in the oralcavity. Forty eight males were participated in the present research.Their age ranging from 35 to 55 years. The clinical periodontalparameters included Plaque index (PLI), Gingival index (GI),bleeding on probing (BOP) and Probing pocket depth (PPD) wereexamined also. .The secretory ABO blood groups from saliva byusing Blood Typing Kit # 11 were assessed. After that the patientswere divided into secretors and non-secretors and the comparisonswere done between them. There was highly significance differencebetween secretory and non-secretory chronic periodontitis patientsin all periodontal parameters (PI, GI and PPD), from the totalsample the Proportional ratio for secretory chronic periodontitisgroup was 58.33% while the proportional ratio for the nonsecretarychronic periodontitis was 41.66%. Group O is thepredominant type of ABO for both groups. Chronic periodontitis ismore likely to occur in secretor ABO more than non-secretorABO.

Abstract

Background: Chronic periodontitis defined as “an infectious inflammatory disease within supporting tissues of the teeth, progressive attachment loss and bone loss". Aggressive periodontitis is rare which in most cases manifest themselves clinically during youth. It characterized by rapid rate of disease progression .Pro-inflammatory chemokines organized inflammatory responses. Granulocyte chemotactic protein 2 is involved in neutrophil gathering and movement. The purpose of the study is to detect serum of Granulocyte Chemotactic Protein 2 and correlate to periodontal condition in patients with chronic periodontitis, Aggressive periodontitis and Healthy Control subjects and measurement the count of neutrophils for the studied groups.Subjects and methods: Eighty four male and female were enrolled in this study .They were divided into three groups (18) patients with Aggressive periodontitis with age range (20-45) years, (33) chronic periodontitis patients and (33) Healthy control with an age range (30-50). Clinical periodontal parameters were recorded for each group. The concentration of granulocyte chemotactic protein- 2 in serum was quantified by a high-sensitivity enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. Blood neutrophils count were detect for five subjects from each group using light microscopeResult: ANOVA analysis revealed high significant differences in Granulocyte chemotactic protein 2 means between aggressive, chronic and controls. Neutrophils count in aggressive periodontitis is higher than chronic and controls .No significant difference in neutrophils count between aggressive and chronic periodontitis, while significant difference when correlate them with controlsConclusion The concentration of granulocyte chemotactic protein 2 increased with the increase in severity of periodontitis. Higher neutrophils count was found in aggressive periodontitis than chronic and controls. As higher granulocyte chemotactic protein 2 that chemoattract more neutrophils recruitment to the site of inflammation

Abstract

Background: Chronic periodontitis is an inflammatory disease that affects the supporting tissues of the teeth and it’scommon among adults. Smoking is an important risk factor for periodontitis induces alveolar bone loss. Alkalinephosphatase enzyme is involved in the destruction of the human periodontium. It is produced by many cells such aspolymorphonuclear leukocytes, osteoblasts, macrophages and fibroblasts within the area of the periodontium andgingival crevice. Osteocalcin is one of the most abundant matrix proteins found in bones and the only matrix proteinsynthesized exclusively there. Smaller Osteocalcin fragments are found in areas of bone remodeling and are actuallydegradation products of the bone matrix.The purpose of this study was to evaluatethe effect of smoking on thesalivary alkaline phosphatase and Osteocalcin in subjects with chronic periodontitis compared to control subjects.Materials and Methods: Five ml of unstimulated whole saliva samples and full-mouth clinical periodontal recordings(plaque index, gingival index, bleeding on probing, probing pocket depth and clinical attachment level) wereobtained from study groups (25 light smokers and 33 non-smokerssubjects, both with chronic periodontitis) andcontrol groups (8 light smokers and 13 non-smokers subjects, both with healthy periodontium). All subjects weresystemically healthy males, with age range (30-50) years. Salivary Alkaline phosphatase and Osteocalcin levels weredetermined by Colorimetric and Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assays, respectively.Results: Smoker chronic periodontitis patients revealed non-significant differences in clinical periodontal parameterswith non-smoker counterparts (P o.o5) in terms of Plaque index, Probing pocket depth and Clinical attachment loss,with slight increase in plaque index value in smoker chronic periodontitis group(1.42±0.46) than non-smoker chronicperiodontitis group, while there were highly significant differences in terms of Gingival index and Bleeding onprobing(P ≤ 0.01).Osteocalcin levels were lower in smoker chronic periodontitis group (0.13±0.20) than non-smokerchronic periodontitis group (1.09±2.26) with significant difference (0.05 ≥ P > 0.01). Mean of Alkaline phosphataselevel was lower in smoker chronic periodontitis (11.14±4.53) than non-smoker chronic periodontitis (11.45±4.17) with anon-significant difference, while there was a significant difference inAlkaline phosphatase concentrations betweensmoker and non-smoker control groups.There were non-significant differences between smoker chronic periodontitisand smoker control groups in terms of Osteocalcin and Alkaline phosphatase concentrations. There were nonsignificantdifferences between non-smoker chronic periodontitis and non-smoker control groups in terms ofOsteocalcin and Alkaline phosphatase concentrations.Conclusion: Within the limits of this study, it may be suggested that suppression of salivary Osteocalcin levels bysmoking and slight increase in alkaline phosphatase in smokers groups, may explain the deleterious effects ofsmoking on periodontal health status.
