Abstract

There is a clearly defined and substantial role for free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS) in Periodontitis.
Paraoxonase 1 is one such antioxidant. The exact physiologic function of PON-1 has not been explored completely yet, but it seems to be an important factor in lipid metabolism- exposing anti-atherogenic, antiinflammatory, and antioxidative properties.6
The association between Periodontitis and various systemic diseases including cardiovascular diseases and Diabetes Mellitus is repeatedly recognised. PON-1 enzyme activity is seen to be reduced in patients with Diabetes Mellitus. The aim of this study is to investigate a possible correlation between Diabetes Mellitus and Paraoxonase enzyme activity in patients with Chronic Periodontitis.
