The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between periodontal bacteria infection (Porphyromonas gingivalis, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Prevotella intermedius) and C-reactive protein (CRP) and albuminuria in non-obese Japanese type 2 diabetic patients. One hundred and thirty-four non-obese Japanese type 2 diabetic patients without evidence of current acute illness including clinically significant acute infectious disease were enrolled into the study. The degree of periodontal bacterial infection was evaluated using IgG titer against Porphyromonas gingivalis, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, or Prevotella intermedius. The bacterial sonic extracts were used as antigens.
