Quantitative estimation and correlation of serum albumin levels in clinically healthy subjects and chronic periodontitis patients.

Kolte RA, Kolte AP, Kohad RR - J Indian Soc Periodontol (2010)

Bottom Line: The mean serum albumin levels for Group I was 4.47 g/dl with standard deviation (SD) of 0.276 and for Group II, the mean value of serum albumin was 4.61 g/dl with SD of 0.273.Using Student's unpaired 't' test, the difference between the serum albumin levels in Group I and Group II were found to be statistically significant (P=0.020).The mean body mass index values for Group I was 22.63 with a SD of 3.85, whereas the same for Group II was 22.23 with a SD of 4.21, which were on comparison, found to be nonsignificant (P=0.462).

ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between periodontal disease and general health status in adults using the serum albumin concentration.

Materials and methods: A total of 100 patients of both genders with age range of 40 to 70 years were included in the study. Patients were divided into the following two groups: clinically healthy subjects and patients with periodontitis, that is, loss of attachment ≥5 mm. Dental examinations were carried out at baseline and clinical attachment levels were measured at four sites. Serum albumin concentration was estimated by bromocresol green albumin method.

Results: The mean serum albumin levels for Group I was 4.47 g/dl with standard deviation (SD) of 0.276 and for Group II, the mean value of serum albumin was 4.61 g/dl with SD of 0.273. Using Student's unpaired 't' test, the difference between the serum albumin levels in Group I and Group II were found to be statistically significant (P=0.020). The mean body mass index values for Group I was 22.63 with a SD of 3.85, whereas the same for Group II was 22.23 with a SD of 4.21, which were on comparison, found to be nonsignificant (P=0.462).

Conclusion: The findings of the clinical trial suggest an inverse relationship between the serum albumin concentration and chronic periodontal disease.

Mentions: Biochemical value of serum albumin level was measured by the bromocresol green albumin (BCG) method. Analysis was done by Selectra E Kit (Merck®) using fully automated biochemical analyzer [Figures 3 and 4].
