Context: Orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) changes the periodontal tissue and increases the incidence of root resorption (OIRR). Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory chemical generated from honey propolis, might be useful in controlling inflammation during OTM and so reducing the risk of OIRR.

Aims: To evaluate if CAPE supplementation has an anti-inflammatory impact on tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and nuclear transcription factor κB (NF-κB) during experimental OTM in male Wistar rats (Rattus novergicus).

Methods: Forty-eight healthy male Wistar rats were divided into positive control group (OTM 10 g/mm2 force application) and experimental group (OTM application and CAPE administration). Each groups were observed for 3, 7, 14 days. A nickel-titanium closed coil spring that was 8.0 mm long, thick was inserted between the upper left first molar and upper central incisor in order to move the molar mesially. A 20 mg/kg body weight dose of CAPE was taken orally. Using immunohistochemistry, the expression of TNF-α and NF-κB was examined on the compression side of the OTM. Both the Tukey’s honest significant difference test and the one-way analysis of variance test were applied (p<0.05).

Results: TNF-α and NF-κB expression in the compression side differed considerably across groups (p<0.05). Daily administration of CAPE significantly downregulates TNF-α and NF-κB expression on the compression side.

Conclusions: Administration of CAPE throughout OTM can successfully reduce the number of TNF-α and NF-κB expressions in the compression side in vivo.

Contexto: El movimiento dental ortodóncico (OTM) cambia el tejido periodontal y aumenta la incidencia de reabsorción radicular (OIRR). El éster fenetílico del ácido cafeico (CAPE), un químico antioxidante y antiinflamatorio generado a partir del propóleo de la miel, podría ser útil para controlar la inflamación durante la OTM y así reducir el riesgo de OIRR.

Objetivos: Evaluar si la suplementación con CAPE tiene un impacto antiinflamatorio sobre el factor de necrosis tumoral-α (TNF-α) y el factor de transcripción nuclear κB (NF-κB) durante OTM experimental en ratas Wistar macho (Rattus novergicus).

Métodos: Cuarenta y ocho ratas Wistar macho sanas se dividieron en un grupo de control positivo (aplicación de fuerza de 10 g/mm2 de OTM) y un grupo experimental (aplicación de OTM y administración de CAPE). Cada grupo se observó durante 3, 7, 14 días. Se insertó un resorte helicoidal cerrado de níquel-titanio de 8,0 mm de largo y espesor entre el primer molar superior izquierdo y el incisivo central superior para mover el molar mesialmente. Se tomó por vía oral una dosis de 20 mg/kg de peso corporal de CAPE. Usando inmunohistoquímica, se examinó la expresión de TNF-α y NF-κB en el lado de compresión del OTM. Se aplicaron tanto la prueba de diferencia significativa honesta de Tukey como la prueba de análisis de varianza de una vía (p<0,05).

Resultados: La expresión de TNF-α y NF-κB en el lado de compresión difirió considerablemente entre los grupos (p<0,05). La administración diaria de CAPE reguló significativamente a la baja la expresión de TNF-α y NF-κB en el lado de la compresión.

Conclusiones: La administración de CAPE a través de OTM puede reducir con éxito las expresiones de TNF-α y NF-κB en el lado de compresión in vivo.
