Department of Periodontology and Preventive Dentistry, Guy's, King's, and St Thomas' Dental Institute, School of Medicine, King's College London, UK
J Dent Res 80:1643-7. 2001..001). Since GCF is a serum-derived tissue exudate, these results suggest that, in smokers, circulating sICAM-1 molecules are affected either in their passage from the periodontal microvasculature or within the periodontal tissues...
