Abstract

Aim: We investigated gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and serum matrix metalloproteinase-8 (MMP-8) and tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1) levels from renal transplant patients receiving cyclosporine-A (CsA) and having gingival overgrowth (GO), from patients receiving CsA therapy and having no GO and patients receiving tacrolimus therapy.
