Brief Summary:
Quantification of NLRP3 (rs4612666) and CARD8 (rs20432111) will be analysed in the subgingival plaque and blood samples of generalized chronic periodontitis with and without coronary heart disease. The demographic and the periodontal parameters were assessed and correlated with the quantification of NLRP3 (rs4612666) and CARD8 (rs2043211) was analysed with RT-PCR

Condition or disease
Periodontal Diseases Coronary Artery Disease

Detailed Description:
The study is done in order to assess the demographic variables such as age, height, weight and socio-economic status, BMI, personal habits, waist-hip ratio, lipid profile, use of medications, and family history of coronary artery disease in generalised chronic periodontitis subjects with and without coronary artery disease. To assess and compare the periodontal status of generalised chronic periodontitis subjects with and without coronary artery disease. To determine the expression of NLRP3 (rs4612666) and CARD8 gene (rs2043211) polymorphisms in subgingival tissue samples of generalised chronic gingivitis periodontitis subjects with and without coronary artery disease. To correlate the demographic variables and periodontal parameters and the expression of NLRP3 (rs4612666) and CARD8 (rs2043211) gene polymorphisms in generalised chronic periodontitis patients with coronary artery disease and compare them with systemically healthy chronic periodontitis patients
