Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF)

Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) is an inflammatory exudate that can be collected at the gingival margin or within the gingival crevice. The biochemical analysis of the fluid offers a non invasive means of assessing the host response in periodontal disease. Active phase of periodontal disease process can be measured or assessed by the constituents of gingival fluid. Bacterial enzymes, bacterial degradation products, connective tissue degradation products, host mediated enzymes, inflammatory mediators, extracellular matrix proteins either together or individually can be detected in higher levels in gingival crevicular fluid during active phase of periodontitis.
