The DiabetRisk studio, about to fulfill its first objectivePeriocentrum
The DiabetRisk study, promoted by the research group of Etiology and Therapeutics of Periodontal Diseases (ETEP), of the Complutense University of Madrid, the Spanish Society of Periodontics (SEPA) and the SEPA Foundation, hopes to recruit a thousand patients before of the end of the year.
Eduardo Montero, researcher of the ETEP group, coordinator of this study and collaborator at PerioCentrum Madrid, explained in Maxillaris magazine that “detecting patients with some glycemic control disorder in the dental clinic could have implications in terms of public health that would be enormous.”
The DiabetRisk study is a pioneering initiative worldwide that allows early detection of diabetes in the dental office based on a simple protocol. There are already more than 40 clinics linked to the project, including PerioCentrum Segovia.
