Recurrent tonsillitis is an oral pathology characterized by inflammation of tonsils. The disease susceptibility depends upon environmental and host factors, specifically the innate immune response, the first line of host defence could play an important role. Among innate immunity members, lactoferrin, known for its antimicrobial properties, was previously correlated with the risk of oral pathology as periodontitis and dental caries.

Abstract

Recurrent tonsillitis is an oral pathology characterized by inflammation of tonsils. The disease susceptibility depends upon environmental and host factors, specifically the innate immune response, the first line of host defence could play an important role. Among innate immunity members, lactoferrin, known for its antimicrobial properties, was previously correlated with the risk of oral pathology as periodontitis and dental caries.
