The autoantibody repertoire in periodontitis: A role in the induction of autoimmunity to citrullinated proteins in rheumatoid arthritis?

Abstract:

Background Studies suggest that periodontitis may be a risk factor for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The purpose of this study was to determine whether periodontitis is associated with autoantibodies characteristic of RA. Methods Serum samples were tested for anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP), anti-mutated citrullinated vimentin (MCV), anti-citrullinated α-enolase peptide-1 (CEP-1), anti-citrullinated vimentin (cit-vim), anticitrullinated fibrinogen (cit-fib) and their uncitrullinated form...
