20 Echistatin and RGD peptides: Another approach made recently was local injection of echistatin and arginine-glycine-spartic acid (RGD) peptides on rats to prevent tooth movement, thereby enhancing anchorage.
Dolce et al21 made the first attempt in this aspect and reported that ELVAX-40 (a non-biodegradable, non-inflammatory, sustained release polymer) could be used to deliverintegrin inhibitors like echistatin and RGD peptide agents (known to perturb bone remodeling), to reduce tooth movement at a local level.
