Table 1 Periodontal data in patients with and without periodontitis.

From: Autophagy in periodontitis patients and gingival fibroblasts: unraveling the link between chronic diseases and inflammation

  Periodontis
(n = 38)
Non-periodontis
(n = 20)
Age (years) 40 ± 9 41.1 ± 5
Body mass index (kg/m2) 25.7 ± 1.7 24.6 ± 1.2
Periodontal data   
GM (mm) 0.8 ± 0.07a 0.17 ± 0.02
PD (mm) 3.3 ± 0.5a 1.5 ± 0.3
CAL (mm) 4.1 ± 0.3a 2.2 ± 0.3
Dental plaque (%) 48.1 ± 3.7a 21.1 ± 2.2
Gingival bleeding (%) 61.9 ± 4.1a 38.3 ± 4.1
  1. Data represent the mean ± SD. CAL: clinical attachment level; GM: position of the gingival margin; PD: periodontal probing depth. a Significantly different periodontitis versus non-periodontitis: P < 0.001.
