Abstract

Background: The plasminogen activator (PA) system plays many roles in the inflammatory process and tissue remodelling and repair and is considered to play a significant role in periodontal tissue destruction and healing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of the PA system in cyclosporin A (CsA)-induced gingival overgrowth in renal transplant patients.
