Since MMP-8 can be used as a predictive biomarker of treatment response, we're investigating clinically the safety of intra-pocket application of Cymbopogon citratus gel and biochemically on MMP-8 levels in gingival crevicular fluid of stage II periodontitis patients. Methods: A randomised controlled clinical trial was carried out on forty patients with stage II periodontitis divided equally into two groups. SRP provided Group-I with 2% lemongrass oil gel intra-pocket, and SRP was able to administer Group-I. Both groups were characterized before treatment and twelve weeks after. Periodontal pocket depth and clinical attachment loss were measured for both groups before and after surgery.
