Effect of Postsurgical Systemic Doxycycline After Regenerative Periodontal Therapy

2014-08-27 03:17:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Study Hypothesis: The administration of 200 mg doxycycline once a day for 7 days after regenerative periodontal therapy of infrabony defects improves the results of therapy (clinical vertical attachment gains [CAL-V], bony fill) and reduces postoperative flap dehiscence and defect exposure.

In each of 90 patients one infrabony defect shall be treated by regenerative techniques (guided tissue regeneration [GTR], enamel matrix derivative [EMD]). Prior to , 6, 12, and 24 months after surgery clinical measurements (Plaque Index [PlI], probing depth [PD], vertical clinical attachment level [CAL-V], Gingival Index [GI]) and standardized radiographs are obtained.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation and loss of connective tissues supporting or surrounding the teeth. This may involve any part of the PERIODONTIUM. Periodontitis is currently classified by disease progression (CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS; AGGRESSIVE PERIODONTITIS) instead of age of onset. (From 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, American Academy of Periodontology)

Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.

Inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction in the presence of little local factors such as DENTAL PLAQUE and DENTAL CALCULUS. This highly destructive form of periodontitis often occurs in young people and was called early-onset periodontitis, but this disease also appears in old people.

A synthetic TETRACYCLINE derivative with similar antimicrobial activity. Animal studies suggest that it may cause less tooth staining than other tetracyclines. It is used in some areas for the treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria (MALARIA, FALCIPARUM).

A periodontal pathogen which is a gram-negative member of BACTEROIDETES. It is implicated in PERIODONTITIS.
