Abstract

Introduction: Nitric oxide (NO) and epidermal growth factor (EGF) play an important role in biologic systems. The aim of the present study was to evaluatesalivary NO and EGF levelschanges in type I and II diabetes mellitus comparing to the control group. Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, five ml saliva of 20 patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus and five ml saliva of 20 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus attended to Hamadan diabetes research center as well as 20 healthy individuals matched according to age and sex, were collected. NO and EGF were assessed via Griess reaction and Immunoassay methods respectively. Data were analyzed by t-test and Mann-Whitney test. Results: Compared to the control group, the level of NO was increased in patients with type I diabetes (P=0.037), while it did not significantly increase in type II diabetes (P=0.058). The level of EGF in diabetic patients was significantly higher than the control group. There was no significant difference between the salivary level of EGF and NO of patient with type 1 and type 2 mellitus diabetes (P>0.05). The correlation coefficient between NO and EGF levels in type II diabetic patients was -0.278 (P=0.0235). The level of NO and EGF was significantly related to fasting blood sugar and HbA1c (P=0.001). Conclusion: The level of salivary NO in type I diabetes and EGF in type I and II diabetes was higher compared to those of healthy individuals and was related to the severity of the disease.
