A first study on the usefulness of matrix metalloproteinase 9 from dentinal fluid to indicate pulp inflammation


Zehnder, Matthias; Wegehaupt, F J; Attin, T (2011). A first study on the usefulness of matrix metalloproteinase 9 from dentinal fluid to indicate pulp inflammation. Journal of Endodontics, 37(1):17-20.

Abstract

With a sensitive assay, it was possible to detect an enzyme linked with pulp tissue destruction (MMP-9) in dentinal fluid. However, the collection method needs to be improved to provide predictable fluid yields. Longitudinal studies should be performed to assess the predictive value of molecular markers in dentinal fluid on pulpal pathosis.
