Isotretinoin effect on alveolar repair after exodontia-a study in rats.

Summary of "Isotretinoin effect on alveolar repair after exodontia-a study in rats."


OBJECTIVES:
To evaluate isotretinoin effect on alveolar repair after tooth extraction of maxillary incisor and serum calcium levels in rats. STUDY
DESIGN:
Wistar rats (60-day-old) were assigned to control (CG, n = 12) and experimental (EG, n = 20) groups. EG received daily isotretinoin (7.5 mg/kg) for 30 days before surgery and until euthanasia, 7, 21, 28, or 90 days after tooth extraction. Blood was collected in the EG to analyze serum calcium levels before isotretinoin administration and at euthanasia. Right hemimaxillae underwent histological examination, and the slides were stained with HE and analyzed by descriptive light microscopy.
RESULTS:
There was acceleration in the process of alveolar repair in the EG at all time points when compared to controls. Serum calcium levels showed a statistically significant decrease between first and second blood collection at days 21, 28, and 90.
CONCLUSIONS:
Daily isotretinoin in a dose corresponding to the treatment of cystic acne accelerated alveolar repair.

Factors that modify the effect of the putative causal factor(s) under study.

An outbred strain of rats developed in 1915 by crossing several Wistar Institute white females with a wild gray male. Inbred strains have been derived from this original outbred strain, including Long-Evans cinnamon rats (RATS, INBRED LEC) and Otsuka-Long-Evans-Tokushima Fatty rats (RATS, INBRED OLETF), which are models for Wilson's disease and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, respectively.

Mutant strains of rats that produce little or no hair. Several different homozygous recessive mutations can cause hairlessness in rats including rnu/rnu (Rowett nude), fz/fz (fuzzy), shn/shn (shorn), and nznu/nznu (New Zealand nude). Note that while NUDE RATS are often hairless, they are most characteristically athymic.
