Estimation of the Levels of C-reactive Protein, Interleukin-6, Total Leukocyte Count, and Differential Count in Peripheral Blood Smear of Patients with Chronic Periodontitis in a South Indian Population

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.096
Pages: 
826–31
Synopsis: 
Periodontitis results in higher systemic levels of C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, total leukocyte count and neutrophils. These elevated inflammatory factors may increase inflammatory activity in atherosclerotic lesions, potentially increasing the risk for cardiovascular events.

ABSTRACT

Aims: The aim of the present study is to investigate systemic levels of inflammatory markers of cardiovascular diseases like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), total leukocyte count and differential count in patients with chronic periodontitis, in comparison to healthy individuals without periodontal disease.

Role of Interleukin-6, Gamma Interferon and Adenosine Deaminase Markers in Management of Pleural Effusion Patients

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.253
Synopsis: 
Interleukin-6, gamma interferon (IFN-γ) and adenosine deaminase (ADA) were investigated as diagnostic tools in pleural effusion. Our results suggest that there is a remarkable difference in production of these three markers in exudative pleural effusions as compared to transudative pleural effusions. However, diagnosis based on culture would be still the gold standard.
