Abstract: Cyclosporin A (CyA) is a cyclic peptide used as an immunosuppressive agent because it can block the synthesis of interleukin-2 and other cytokines produced by CD4+ lymphocytes. It is widely used for the prevention of allograft rejection and treatment of autoimmune diseases. Several side-effects of CyA treatment have been reported, among which are chronic nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity and neurotoxicity, lymphoproliferative neoplasms, hypertension, thromboembolic complications and gingival overgrowth. Here, using a rat molar model, it is demonstrated that CyA immunosuppression inhibits the activity of matrix metalloproteinases 2 and 9 in the early phase of granulation tissue in the healing dental socket. These observations suggest that CyA may interfere with the wound healing following dental extractions. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
