Use of thymalin in the complex treatment of dental diseases

Cover Page


The review summarizes studies that used the timalin immunomodulator in many dental diseases. Issues related to its immunopharmacological action and effective clinical use in inflammatory, traumatic, and other pathological processes of the maxillofacial region were considered. Special attention was paid to their use in medical complexes for diseases of tissues and organs of the oral cavity in various age groups.
