Background: Trefoil factors (TFFs) are secreted molecules which are involved in cytoprotection against tissue damage, and the immune response. TFFs have been detected in saliva and oral tissues, but their clinical significance has never been investigated in patients with chronic periodontitis. The objective of our study was to determine if TFF expression in saliva and gingival tissues was associated with periodontal pathology. Methods: Saliva and gingival tissue samples were collected from 25 non-periodontitis subjects, and 25 chronic periodontitis patients. Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and immunohistochemical methods were used to evaluate the expression of TFFs (TFF1, TFF2, and TFF3) in saliva and gingival tissues, respectively. Periodontopathic bacteria were quantified by real-time polymerase chain reaction. Results: Reduced salivary TFF1 and TFF3 concentrations were observed in chronic periodontitis patients (p = 0.003 and p < 0.001, respectively). Decreased TFF3 expression in gingival tissues of chronic periodontitis patients was demonstrated (p = 0.041). Levels of salivary TFF3 concentrations were negatively correlated with periodontal pathology and number of Porphyromonas gingivalis and Tannerella forsythensis. Conclusions: Altered expression of TFFs in saliva and gingival tissues was detected in chronic periodontitis patients. The results suggest that TFF3 may involve in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease.
