Abstract: The toxicity of two endodontic filling materials (AH26 and amalgam) were evaluated in vitro using the radiochromium release method and primary culture of human periodontal ligament (PDL) fibroblasts. The materials were tested fresh and when set after one day. Results showed a high 51Cr-release when the mate¬ rials were tested fresh. The level of the 51Cr-release decreased when the materials were allowed to set for one day. The results indicated that the human PDL fibroblast is an appropriate cell to use when evaluating the cytotoxicity of endodontic filling materials, in vitro,since they are in close contact with the tissue of periodontal ligament in case of clinical situations.
