Abstract

Objective: Evidence reveals the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in many pathologies including periodontitis. Protein carbanylation is the most widely used biomarker for oxidative damage to proteins, and reflects cellular damage induced by ROS. In this study protein carbonyl (PC) levels in serum and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) in patients with chronic periodontitis (CP) was evaluated.
