Özet

Background: Emerging data indicate that genetic factors may be associated with the etiopathogenesis of aggressive periodontitis. Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) is a sensitive method that might reflect an instability of DNA or a deficiency of DNA repair. The aim of the present study was to investigate SCE frequency of patients with different forms of periodontal disease and to determine whether this cytogenetic marker in patients with aggressive periodontitis can be differential compared to patients with chronic periodontitis and control subjects.
