Pilot Study of the Oral Microbiome in Subjects with Type 2 Diabetes and Periodontal Disease
This study enrolls adults with or without Type 2 Diabetes. The purpose of this study is to learn which bacteria (germs) make gum disease worse when a person does or does not have diabetes.
This study involves two visits to our clinic. You will have a free oral health exam and assessment for periodontal (gum) disease. You will have dental x-rays taken if you haven't had them taken in the past two years. You will be asked to give various samples. You will receive the results of your A1C blood test. Study takes place at UB's South Campus.
The PI. was changed to Dr. Robert E. Schifferle, DDS, PhD; Dr. Robert J. Genco will be an Investigator. Dr. Genco's name has been removed from the ICF and from the PI position in the Protocol HRP-503.
