dc.description.abstractObjective. Formocresol, paramonochlorophenol, or calcium hydroxide have been widely used in dental practice to eradicate bacteria and consequently to produce root canal disinfection. Taking into consideration strong evidence for a relationship between DNA damage and carcinogenesis, the purpose of the present study was to evaluate the genotoxic effects of antimicrobial endodontic compounds in human peripheral lymphocytes by single-cell gel ( comet) assay. This technique detects DNA strand breaks in individual cells.Study design. A total of 10 mu L of the tested substance solution (formocreso1, paramonochlorofeno1, and calcium hydroxide at 100-mu g/mL concentration) was added to human peripheral lymphocytes from 10 volunteers for 1 hour at 37 degrees C. the negative control group was treated with vehicle control (PBS) for 1 hour at 37 degrees C, as well. for the positive control group, lymphocytes were exposed to hydrogen peroxide at 100 mu M during 5 minutes on ice.Results. No DNA breakage was detected after a treatment of peripheral lymphocytes by formocresol, paramonochlorophenol, or calcium hydroxide at 100 mu g/mL.Conclusions. in summary, our results indicate that exposure to formocresol, paramonochlorophenol, or calcium hydroxide may not be a factor that increases the level of DNA lesions in human peripheral lymphocytes as detected by single-cell gel (comet) assay.en
