Abstract : Oral cancer is one of the most frequently occurring cancers worldwide. Treatment of oral cancer includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery depending on staging of the cancer. Treatment may have many difficulties resulting in impairment of quality of life both functionally and psychologically. Oral mucositis is one of the most common complications in patients with Head and Neck cancer receiving radiotherapy. It has a great impact on quality of life in terms of physical pain affecting the patient’s ability to eat, swallow and speak. This study was intended to evaluate the efficacy of mouth wash containing Turmeric Triphala & Honey in patients with oral cancer undergoing Radiotherapy for Head & Neck Cancers. The study population comprised of 30 patients with head & neck cancer scheduled for undergoing radiotherapy who were divided into two equal groups, Group A given ORO-T mouth wash Containing Turmeric Triphala & Honey along with glycerine) and Group-B given glycerine at 3rd week and at 5th week of radiotherapy. Patients were asked to swish 10 ml of ORO-T diluted with water in 1:3 ratios for 1minute and then instructed to spit it out. Glycerine was applied topically over the mucosa. Symptoms were recorded based on WHO Mucositis Assessment Scale and pain score was recorded using VAS scale. This study included 30 patients in which Group A included 15 patients had given mouthwash (ORO_T) containing turmeric, honey, triphala, and glycerin, and Group B had only glycerin. Symptoms of oral mucositis was analyzed between both groups using the who oral mucositis assessment scale at the 3rd week and 5th week At 3rd week the results were statistically not significant with a p-value of 0.17. At 5th-week in both groups the results were statistically significant with p-value of 0.05. The mean score for pain in the 3rd week in both groups was 5.93 and 5.80 respectively and the results were not statistically significant, with a p-value 0.60. The mean score for pain at the 5th week in both groups was 3.60 and 4.27 respectively and the result were statistically significant with a p-value of 0.05. Our study showed that ORO –T mouthwash was effective and safe than topical glycerine in the management of radiation induced mucositis..

Abstract : This study aimed to investigate the effect of COVID-19 on pulmonary function tests after 6-8 weeks of recovery, to confirm the necessity of the test to follow up the patients after recovery and to find out the possibility to use it as a workable procedure to indicate the severity of the previous infections. This a randomized-control study The study was conducted in Basrah City. Three groups of patients were divided based on the severity of the previous infection, Group 1 included the patients with previously severe infection; group 2 were the patients with previously mild infection and group 3 who never infected. Pulmonary function tests(PFTs) were measured in all groups using a spirometer. Data analysis showed that group 1 had a significant change in some PFT,6-8 weeks after recovery and this change was in form a restrictive pattern, while group 2 showed non- significant changes compared to group 3. COVID-19 might affect PFT after recovery in a way depended on the severity of the infection. This study pointed to the necessity of following up the previously infected patients and that measurement was workable test to indicate the severity of the previous infection..

Abstract : Oral submucous fibrosis [OSMF] is a potentially malignant disorder of oral cavity. The epidemiology of OSMF strongly suggests an individual susceptibility which could be cytokine based, especially as the initial feature of OSMF is chronic inflammation accompanied by chronic fibrosis. Cytokines can act as Prognostic tools for detecting malignant transformation of oral potentially malignant disorders. It has been evident that different cytokines are expressed by dysplastic cells, the most common of which include tumour necrosis factor alpha [TNF-α], IL-1, IL-6, and IL-8. To assess the Serum levels of IL- 1 beta, and IL-6 in oral submucous fibrosis patients. This study group comprised 75 individuals divided into 3 groups GROUP A with 25 and GROUP B with 25 OSMF individuals, GROUP C 25 healthy individuals as controls. Serum levels of IL-1β, IL-6 were measured using enzyme linked immunoassay kits in all the subjects. The present study showed a significant rise in serum levels of IL-1beta and IL-6 levels in OSMF patients in contrast to the control group with the significance of p-value [<0.05]. Proinflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-6 were elevated, might act as a diagnostic and prognostic marker in oral submucous fibrosis patients..

Abstract : Oral leukoplakia - most common potentially malignant disorder and its management is currently not evidence-based. The present study intends to determine the efficacy of freeze dried black raspberry capsules on clinical and histopathological retro gradation and also regression of COX – 2 enzyme levels in patients with oral leukoplakia. A total of 30 patients diagnosed with oral leukoplakia were randomly divided into 2 groups – group A and group B. A detailed clinical examination was done and size of the lesion was noted. For both groups punch biopsy was done and blood sample was collected before the start of treatment and after 45 days. Group A were treated with 300mg freeze dried black raspberry capsules twice daily for 45 days and group B was treated with antioxidant capsules (SM Fibro) twice daily for 45 days. To test the mean difference between the two groups, a student’s t-test (paired sample t-test & independent sample t-test) was used. Statistically, a significant difference was not found in both groups regarding the size of the lesion (P > 0.005). However, the study demonstrated a statistically significant decrease in COX-2 enzyme levels in group A than in group B (p < 0.005). Half of the patients in both the groups should one unit of improvement histologically which is not statistically significant. Based on the study outcome, it was concluded that management of oral Leukoplakia with dietary supplementation of black raspberry capsules can be considered one of the treatment modalities..

Abstract : The covid-19 pandemic is a major public health crisis globally and has affected the practice of medicine and dentistry. The objective is to compare the effects of immediate pre-covid-19 period and the covid-19 period in our private dental practice. This was a retrospective study conducted at pre-covid-19 pandemic (January-December, 2019) and during covid-19 pandemic (January-December, 2020) in a private dental clinic in Najran, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Our dental clinic runs services based on three Departments (Clinical, Administrative and Research). Patients demographics and turnout with new and follow-up cases were recorded during both periods. Total number of new patients during the pre-covid-19 (2019) era was 2,271 while during the covid-19 (2020) era was 2,535. In terms of patients visit to the center, 18,176 patients visited the dental clinic in 2019, while 19,842 visited in 2020. Regarding dental services rendered, 9,596 services were rendered in 2019 while 16,039 were rendered in 2020. It was observed from this study that there was a sharp drop in patients visit to our clinics because of the total lockdown put in place by the government. This, however improved during the partial ease of lockdown..
