Purpose: To establish diagnostic value of the increased content of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-8, MCP-1, RAIL) in gingival fluid at patients with a chronic periodontal disease. Material and Methods: 60 patients with inflammatory periodontal diseases were surveyed. The concentration of the studied cytokines in gingival fluid has been defined. Results: At a periodontal disease the increased level of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in gingival fluid has been noted. Conclusion: Definition of the MCP-1 and IL-8 levels in gingival fluid can be used as a criterion of the prognosis of the severity of inflammatory and destructive processes in the periodontal tissues.
