Tetracycline has been widely used as a periodontal support treatment since it has broad-spectrum bone tissue penetration and it can inhibit native collagen. Chi-tosan hydrogel-based tetracycline is known to have strong antibacterial effects, but the cytotoxic effects on fibroblast have yet to be studied. Objective: to obtain the in vitro cytotoxicity effect of chitosan hydrogel-based tetracycline on fibro-blasts. Material and Method Chitosan hydrogel-based tetracycline (0.5%, 0.7% and 1%) and chitosan hydrogel without tetracycline is made by dissolving chi-tosan powder in citric acid. Tetracycline powder is then added to the solution. 3T3 fibroblast cells were cultured in a well microplate containing RPMI-1640 media inside an incubator. The viability assay is conducted using the MTT-assay meth-od and repeated 5 times. The colour degradation is read with a microplate reader. The mean viability of fibroblasts applied with chitosan hydrogel-based tetracy-cline (0.5%, 0.7% and 1%) and chitosan hydrogel is 86.5%, 85.36%, 80.99% and 90.85%, respectively. The highest mean cell viability in the group of fibroblasts applied with chitosan hydrogel-based tetracycline is in the 0.5% group. This value is not significantly different than the value in the 0.7% group, but it is significantly different than the value in the 1% group. Conclusion Chitosan hydrogel-based tet-racycline shows a low cytotoxic effect on 3T3 fibroblast cells.
