Objective This article analyzes the role of C. asiatica extract in reducing the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-1β produced by salivary neutrophils. Results The administration of methanolic extract C. asiatica decreased the expression of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β on the surface of salivary neutrophils on S-ECC; The administration of C. asiatica methanol extract resulted in a decrease in the expression of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β on the surface of salivary neutrophils in S-ECC. Conclusion C. asiatica extract has the effect of reducing the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β produced by salivary neutrophils on S-ECC via inhibiting nuclear factor kappa B and mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathway activation and suggest that C. asiatica is a possible candidate for treating S-ECC.
