Özet

Background: Apoptosis plays an important role in the maintenance of tissue homeostasis. Considering that apoptosis mediators may play a role in the pathogenesis of drug-induced gingival overgrowth, this study was conducted to evaluate p53, bcl-2, and interleukin-15 (IL-15) levels in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of cyclosporin A (CsA)-treated patients.
