Özet

Background: Host inflammatory and immune responses play an important role in aggressive periodontitis (AgP). Thus, this study aims to evaluate levels of the innate immunity-related markers calprotectin, colony-stimulating factor (CSF)-1, macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF), monokine induced by interferon-gamma (MIG), and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-8 in serum and saliva from patients with generalized AgP and those with gingivitis or a healthy periodontium.
