Abstract

Objective: Recent studies have showed that genetic factors involved in the host responses might determine the severity of periodontitis. hCAP-18/LL-37 is a part of the innate immune response in the oral cavity. The aim of the present study was to investigate the mutation of CAMP gene encoding hCAP-18/LL-37 in the patients with different periodontal diseases.
