Özet

Objectives: Beta-defensin 1, encoded by the DEFB1 gene, is an important molecule that confers protection from dental caries. Numerous studies have been conducted on the rs11362 polymorphism in the DEFB1 gene. We evaluated the results from studies that have investigated the association between rs11362 polymorphism and dental caries, through a meta-analysis.
