TNFa production is influenced by gene polymorphisms. The aim of this study was to evaluate links between genetic variants and chronic/aggressive periodontitis in a multivariate model.
Subjects: One hundred and twenty-three periodontitis patients (chronic: n 5 54,aggressive: n 5 69) and 52 healthy controls without periodontitis were included in thestudy.
Material and Methods: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) c. À 308G4A,c. À 238G4A and haplotypes were analysed by a polymerase chain reaction withsequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP). The clinical investigation included smokingstatus, plaque and bleeding indexes, pocket depth and attachment loss.
Results: Prevotella intermedia occurred more frequently in individuals positive forthe À 308GG/ À 238GG haplotype combination (Odds Ratio 5 2, 95% Confidenceinterval: 1.1–3.7, p 5 0.037, 1 À b 5 61%).
