  • CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that both GCF DPP II and IV may be predictors of periodontal attachment loss [1].
  • While no correlation between the rheumatological variables (radiological destruction, functional capacity, grip strength) and the periodontal measurements (SBI, probing depth, clinical attachment loss) could be demonstrated, a positive correlation was observed between the CRP and the periodontal attachment loss (r = 0.32; p <0.05) [10].
