Özet

Background: Interleukin (IL)-6 family of cytokines, including IL-6, oncostatin M (OSM), leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), and IL-11, have fibrogenic features. The current study determines gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) levels of fibrosis-related IL-6-type cytokines in cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced gingival overgrowth (GO).
