The nonantimicrobial properties of tetracycline for the treatment of periodontal disease.

Abstract

Tetracyclines have nonantimicrobial properties that appear to modulate host response. In that regard, tetracyclines and their nonantimicrobial chemically modified analogues (chemically modified tetracycline molecules [CMTs]) inhibit the extracellular activity of mammalian neutrophil and osteoblast collagenases. The activity of this matrix metalloproteinase… (More)
