Abstract

Aims: To determine and compare the salivary zinc level concentration (SZLC) and salivary flow rate (SFR) in patient with benign migratory glossitis (BMG) and in control normal subjects, also to evaluate any relationship among these variables in each group. Materials and Methods: The study was con-ducted on 42 individuals who were allocated into two groups: patients group was comprised of 22 pa-tients who did have (BMG) and 20 healthy subjects. Unstimulated whole saliva was collected and both SFR and SZLC were determined. Zinc analysis was performed with an atomic absorption spectropho-tometer. Results: The mean SFR in patients and control groups were 0.5459(ml / min) and 0.6840(ml / min) respectively, whereas the mean SZLC for patients was 0.09764(ppm) and 0.13830 (ppm) for con-trol group. SFR was not differ significantly between both groups (p > 0.099), also SZLC was not sig-nificantly differ in both groups too (p > 0.169). Conclusions: This clinical study could not establish significant association between BMG and both SZLC and SFR.

Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the effect of topical application of ketamine gel )0.5%( and gel alone)without ketamine( on salivary and serum level of human interlukin-6)IL-6 (in patient with recurrent aphthous ulceration )RAU( and compare the results with control group having no RAU. Materials and methods: The investigation was carried out on)36( subjects with mean ± SD ages )25.11±6.31(years and different sex )20 males,16 females(. These subjects were divided into three groups. Group1: The study group consisted of )12(patients having minor RAU received topical ketamine gel )0.5%( applied on the lesion. Group2: The placebo group consisted of )12(patients having minor RAU received topical gel alone. Group3: The control group consisted of )12( healthy subjects having no RAU.Peripheral venous blood and saliva samples were collected from all subjects before treatment, and four days after treatment from group1and group2 only, to assess the levels of serum and salivary )IL-6( by Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assays )ELISA( method. Patients were subjectively assessed for the intensity of pain which was recorded pre and four days post treatment in group1 and 2 by using Verbal Pain Scale )VPS(. Data were analyzed using paired t-test, One way ANOVA and Willcoxon Signed Ranks test. Results: The results showed that the mean of serum IL-6 concentrations were high in the study and placebo groups )18.49±5.4pg/ml( and )18.97± 7,47 pg/ml( respectively before treatment comparing with mean of serum IL-6 concentration of control group )9.63±2.77pg/ml(, and the mean of salivary IL-6 concentrations were high in the study and placebo groups )63.03±47.28pg/ml( and )62.25±45.14pg/ml( respectively before treatment comparing with mean of saliva IL-6 concentration of control group )13.1±5.08pg/ml(.

Abstract

To evaluate the clinical effectiveness of ethanolic extract of propolis (viscous solution12.5%) compared with the effect of Acyclovir (ACV) cream 5% in patients with recurrent herpes labialis (RHL). Materials and Methods: Thirty patients with active lesions (intact vesicle and rupture lesions) were included in this clinical trial. Fifteen patients were treated with viscous solution of ethanolic propolis extract while the other fifteen patients were treated with Acyclovir cream 5%. Results: Com-plete resolution of prodromal symptoms ( itching, tingling or burning) and erythema were noticed in propolis group after two days of treatment compared with none in ACV group. Statistically very high-ly significant difference in RHL lesion size in ACV group was observed (P<0.000), compared with highly significant difference in propolis group (P < 0.001). Conclusions: ACV cream 5% appeared to be more effective topically in healing time than ethanolic extract of 12.5 % viscous solution of propo-lis.Topical propolis would alleviate symptoms and erythema of RHL completely after two days whe-reas this action was not seen in topical ACV cream 5%.

Abstract

Fifty patients with periapical granuloma were studied. Radiological examination showed radiolucent lesion associated with the root apex less than 1 cm in diameter. Histological examination of the lesion showed typical features of periapical granuloma as described by WHO. While bacteriologically, periapical granuloma was sterile
