The aim of this study was to determine the influence of distinct pre-irradiation times (PIT) of curcumin on the effectiveness of the antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) against intact dentin caries biofilms grown for 3 or 5 days.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Photodiagnosis and photodynamic therapy
There is still no systematized evidence in the literature regarding the combination of curcumin to improve the effects of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) on complex oral biofilms. Therefore,...
"Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) with curcumin and LED, as an enhancement to scaling and root planing in the treatment of residual pockets in diabetic patients: a randomized and controlled split-mouth clinical trial".
Residual pockets represent a risk factor for periodontal disease progression, and Diabetes Mellitus (DM) may impair the prognosis after cause-related therapy, mainly related to the chronic hyperglycem...
Diode lasers are commonly used for antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT). This study aimed to assess the feasibility of transgingival laser irradiation during aPDT and evaluate whether the photose...
Canida albicans can cause opportunistic infections ranging from superficial mucous membrane lesions to life-threatening diseases. The aim of this study is to investigate the antifungal effect of photo...
Antimicrobial photodynamic treatment is potentially an alternative to antibiotics and is also effective against viruses, fungi and some cancers. Our previous studies have shown that blue light combine...
The elimination of pathogenic microorganisms from the muco-gingival tissue and implant pockets system is one of the main aspects for success in the treatment of peri-implantitis. The purpo...
The elimination of the pathogenic microorganisms of the periodontal pocket is one of the main points for success in periodontal treatment. The objective of this study is to investigate the...
Traditionally, periodontal gum surgery has been used as a method to gain access to inflamed periodontal pockets around teeth. The outcome of these surgeries, however, is not always success...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy as an adjuvant of scaling and root planning for treatment of periodontal disease in patients w...
The aim of this study is to evaluate adjuvant effect of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy in periodontal treatment and salivary status of type 1 diabetes patients.
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
A yellow-orange dye obtained from tumeric, the powdered root of CURCUMA longa. It is used in the preparation of curcuma paper and the detection of boron. Curcumin appears to possess a spectrum of pharmacological properties, due primarily to its inhibitory effects on metabolic enzymes.
A complex mixture of monomeric and aggregated porphyrins used in the photodynamic therapy of tumors (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION). A purified component of this mixture is known as DIHEMATOPORPHYRIN ETHER.
