Background: Inflammation of periodontal tissues during postoperative wound healing is mediated by cell surface adhesion molecules. Soluble forms of these antigens have also been identified and shown to be important in immunoregulatory processes, but have previously not been investigated during periodontal repair and regeneration. The present study has examined the presence and possible changes in soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1; CD54) and lymphocyte function-associated antigen-3 (sLFA-3; CD8) in gingival crevical fluid (GCF) following periodontal surgery.
