Phytotherapy in periodontics as an effective and sustainable supplemental treatment: a narrative review
CONCLUSIONS: Several readily available herbal formulations are now available on the market and have been shown to be effective as supplemental periodontal phytotherapy. However, these should be used under the supervision of a dental professional to ensure optimal benefits and effectiveness. Therefore, it is necessary to improve the understanding of suggested herbal prescription practices among dental professionals.PMID:38290997 | DOI:10.5051/jpis.2301420071 (Source: Journal of Periodontal and Implant Science)

Antibacterial effect of red laser-activated silver nanoparticles synthesized with grape seed extract against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli
AbstractLiving organisms, particularly humans, frequently encounter microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses in their surroundings. Silver nanoparticles are widely used in biomedical devices because of their antibacterial and antiviral properties. The study evaluates the efficacy of red laser and silver nanoparticles from grape seed extract (AgNPs-GSE) in reducing Gram-negativeEscherichia coli and Gram-positiveStaphylococcus aureus bacteria, which cause infections. The sample comprised three groups: a control group without laser irradiation (T0),Escherichia coli samples (A1 and A2) irradiated with a 405-nm diode...

A triple-masked, two-center, randomized parallel clinical trial to assess the superiority of eight weeks of grape seed flour supplementation against placebo for weight loss attenuation during perioperative period in patients with cachexia associated with colorectal cancer: a study protocol
DiscussionThe current trial addresses a gap within the field of cancer cachexia, specifically focusing on the potential role of a nutritional intervention during the acute treatment phase. GSF is expected to modulate inflammation and oxidative stress, both involved in muscle and intestinal dysfunction. The research findings hold substantial implications for enhancing the understanding about cachexia pathophysiology and may offer a new clinical approach to managing cachexia at a critical point in treatment, directly impacting clinical outcomes.Trial registrationThe Brazilian Registry of Clinical Trials (ReBEC), RBR-5p6nv8b;...

The multiple actions of grape and its polyphenols on female reproductive processes with an emphasis on cell signalling
Grapes are an economically important fruit crop, and their polyphenols (mainly phenolic acids, flavanols, flavonols, anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and stilbenes) can exert a wide range of health benefits as an interesting and valuable dietary supplement for natural complementary therapy. However, their potential physiological and therapeutic actions on reproductive processes have not been sufficiently elucidated. This evidence-based study presents current knowledge of grape extracts and polyphenols, as well as their properties and therapeutical actions in relation to female reproduction in a nutshell. Grape extract, and...

Does the Grape Products Intake has an Effect on Body Weight in Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
CONCLUSION: Our study suggests that grape products intake may help to decrease body weight in obese participants. Future large RCTs with longer duration and obese populations are needed to expand our findings.PMID:38141198 | DOI:10.2174/0113894501272740231219072525 (Source: Current Drug Targets)

Human Minor Salivary Glands: A Readily Available Source of Salivary Stem/Progenitor Cells for Regenerative Applications
Methods Mol Biol. 2024;2749:25-38. doi: 10.1007/978-1-0716-3609-1_3.ABSTRACTResident stem/progenitor cells within the secretory salivary glands offer a potential therapeutic resource for use in the regeneration of salivary glands needed to restore saliva production in patients with chronic xerostomia, or dry mouth. Methods were developed previously to isolate human stem/progenitor cells (hS/PCs) from major salivary glands (parotid/submandibular). Abundant minor salivary glands located in readily accessible locations in the oral cavity and lip could provide an additional valuable therapeutic resource. An advantage of this c...
