Abstract

Background: The present randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled, parallel-arm study examines the impact of adjunctive subantimicrobial-dose doxycycline (SDD) on the local inflammatory response through cytokine and chemokine levels in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) samples from patients with chronic periodontitis.
