Published:


The picture of morphological anomalies observed in gingival tissues of rats in the course of experimental parodontitis induced with cotton ligature was reflected in non-specific, degenerative-inflammatory changes, which were acute in phase I of the experiment and chronic in phase II. These changes co-occurred with elevated level of malonic dialdehyde in parodontal soft tissues which suggested that the processes of lipid peroxidation play an important role in aetiology of parodontal diseases.
