Aim: The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (-174 G>C) in the interleukin-6 (IL-6) gene with chronic periodontitis (CP) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in south Indian population.

Methods: Genomic DNA was obtained from the white blood cells of 30 patients with T2DM, 30 patients with CP, 30 patients with T2DM with CP, and 30 controls. DNA was amplified using polymerase chain reaction with specific primers flanking the locus -174 of the IL-6 gene and further genotyped using the restriction fragment length polymorphism method. The genotype distribution and allele frequencies between the study groups were determined using χ -test. The relative risk was estimated with a 95% confidence interval.

Results: The CP group (26.7%) displayed a greater percentage of GC genotype (P = 0.026) when compared to the control group (3.3%). A statistically-significant difference in the allele frequencies was found between the control and CP group with the C-allele frequency being greater (0.13) in the CP group than normal controls (0.02).

Conclusion: The GC genotype was found to be the risk genotype and the C allele was found to be the risk allele for the development of CP.
