Abstract: Potassium diclofenac is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and COX isoforms (COX-1 and COX-2) inhibitor. Quantitative analysis of birefringence with polarized light microscopy is a useful method to investigate the macromolecular orientation and organization of collagen fibers in connective tissues. The aim of this research was to analyze the collagen structure and maturation in bone formed after potassium diclofenac administration, during first molar orthodontic movement. Sixty Wistar rats were divided in two equal groups (N = 30): control (C) and potassium diclofenac (PD). The animals in Group C received 0.9% saline solution and the PD group received potassium diclofenac Cataflam (R) (5 mg/kg). Animals were sacrificed 3, 7, or 14 days after a NiTi unilateral closed-coil spring was stretched between the upper right first molar and the incisors. The first molar area was fixed, decalcified, and histologically processed using picrosirius pigment. The collagen birefringence of bone turnover was analyzed by phase retardation. Two-way ANOVA and Tukey's test showed that optical retardation was influenced by time and treatment. There was increase in the collagen organization over time. On the third day, the C group showed better collagen organization than the PD group. Potassium diclofenac interfered in collagen maturation, reducing fibril organization in the initial phase of orthodontic movement. Anat Rec, 293:195-199, 2010. (C) 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
