Abstract

Background: The objective of this cross-sectional study is to investigate levels of salivary and serum matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9, myeloperoxidase (MPO), neutrophil elastase (NE), and MMP-9/tissue inhibitor of MMP-1 (TIMP)-1 ratio in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and systemically healthy controls in the presence or absence of gingivitis.
