Effect of scaling and root planing on interleukin-1β, interleukin-8 and MMP-8 levels in gingival crevicular fluid from chronic periodontitis patients
Journal of Periodontal Research, 05/03/2012Konopka L et al.

Nevertheless, no significant correlations were found between clinical parameters and amounts of humoral factors after therapy.
