Abstract
La lactoferrina (LF) es una proteína presente en secreciones y es un componente de los gránulos específicos del neutrófilo que se libera cuando estas células son activadas por agentes periodontopatógenos en el caso de los procesos inflamatorios de gingivitis y periodontitis. Se ha correlacionado el nivel de LF con el número de neutrófilos presentes en las lesiones y se propone a esta molécula como un marcador bioquímico de actividad periodontal. Debido a la diversidad de actividades biológicas de la LF como su capacidad citotóxica y su interferencia en el desarrollo de biopelículas, entre otras, se propone su uso en la prevención y tratamiento en enfermedades pe...
