Introduction: This study assessed tissue response to freshly mixed sealers (Sealer 26 – SE26 and Epiphany EPH) and the relationship between M1 macrophages and tissue repair. Methods: A total of 21 rats were used to assess tissue response at 7, 14 and 21 days post-implantation. Half of histopathological sections were labeled with anti-iNOS antibodies (M1 macrophage subset) and half were graded according to the inflammatory intensity. Results: On day 7, no significant difference was found in the intensity of the inflammatory reaction between sealers. On days 14 and 21, SE26 showed a more intense inflammatory reaction than EPH (P < 0.05). On days 7 and 14, the number of iNOS+ cells was statistically higher for EPH than SE26 (P < 0.05). Conclusions: SE26 was more toxic than EPH. The degree of inflammation observed in EPH had an inverse relationship with the amount of M1 macrophages observed.
