Abstract

Background: Meloxicam is an NSAID of the oxicam class that acts by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis and inducibleCOX-2, thereby exerting anti-inflammatory effect. This study aimed to evaluate the level of alkaline phosphetase andhigh sensitivity C - reactive protein as response to sulcular injection of meloxicom using a rabbit model.Material and method: Forty five male rabbits of the same species were divided into three groups. Group 1 whichincluded 20 rabbits that injected with meloxicon in a dose equal to the human therapeutic dose /kg .Group 2 whichincluded 15 rabbits that injected with normal saline. Group 3 which included 10 rabbits used as control group. Five mlof blood was collected from the rabbits ear vien for biochemical analysis at deferent time interval. Biochemicalanalysis included alkaline phosphetase (ALP) which analyzed by using Biolabo kit and High sensitivity C- reactiveprotein (hs- CRP) was measured using ELISA technique.Results: The result showed that the level of ALP after 1 day of sulcular injection in group 1 was 101.25 then it wasdecrease to 97.50 after 14 days while mean of ALP in group 2 was 70.33 After 1 day of injection and reach to 74.67After 14 days and this almost near to the mean value of control groupStatistic description of hs-CRP for group 1 was decreased. The mean value from 11.617 after 1 day to 3.639 after 14days. For group 2 also there was decreased in the mean from 11.556 after 1 day to 3.536 after 14 days, while for thecontrol group the mean value was 3.170 .Conclusions: The sulcular injection of NSAIDs seems to be of particular interest. This may help to further reduceadverse systemic effects of NSAIDs in treatment of periodontal disease safely.

Abstract

Background: Green tea has many beneficial effects on the body. The recent era is all about herbal treatment ofvarious diseases and green tea is one of the best tonics for healthy well beings. This study examined theimmunological response of sulcular injection of green tea on gingival health using a rabbit model.Methods: Twenty male rabbit weighted 1-1.5 kg of the same species. Blood samples were taken for each normalrabbits before sulcular injection with 5% green tea solution, blood drown after three days of the injection forimmunological assessment by measuring of IL-1β, TNF-α and INF-γ.Results: Study showed there was a highly significant decrease in mean concentration of IL-1β, TNF-α after injectionwith 5% green tea solution(P< 0.01), while a significant elevation was observed in mean concentration of INF-γ afterinjected with the same solution(P<0.05).Conclusion: Green tea sulcular injection had beneficial effect on the periodontal health condition, thus green teacan be used safely and successfully in oral field.
