her cytokines respond to psychological stress or antigenic challenges outside the oral cavity in a fashion similar to that seen in circulation. This research advises that circulating and oral levels of these markers may be influenced by similar autonomic signaling pathways. The relevance of IL-6 in saliva and GCF (gingival crevicular fluid) to the etiology of periodontitis or other oral diseases is well established in the literature, while further studies are required to explore the relationships of IL-6 and other cytokines in saliva to systemic inflammation and diseases outside the mouth. IL-6 signaling also contributes to periodontal disease pathology as a mediator of bone resorption by directly stimulating osteoclast differentiation.
