Background and Aims: Apoptosis or programmed cell death plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases. Previous studies suggest that apoptosis is involved in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease, on the other hand it is also suggested that diabetes mellitus enhances apoptosis of connective tissue cells. Thus, we measured expression of proteins which are relevant to apoptosis in the gingival tissue of diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis in comparison to non diabetic individuals.

Materials and Methods: 25 patients with diabetes and chronic periodontitis and 16 non diabetic controls were included in this study. 4 weeks after scaling and root planning and oral hygiene instructions, periodontal surgery was done and gingival tissues obtained during surgery, were sent to lab to investigate expression of Fas, P53, Bcl-2 and Survivin using real-time PCR technique. Data were analyzed using Mann-Whitney and Chi-squared.

Results: Pro-apoptotic proteins (Fas, P53) were significantly (P<0.05) higher in gingival tissues of diabetics (9.5×10-6, 2.4×10-6, respectively) in comparison to non diabetics (9.4×10-7, 5.6×10-7), whereas the difference in expression of anti-apoptotic proteins (Bcl-2, Survivin) between 2 groups was not significant (9.7×10-8, 3.5×10-7 in comparison to 1.4×10-7, 3.1×10-7, respectively)( P =0.91, P =0.29 respectively).

Conclusion: Apoptosis was increased in gingival connective tissue of diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis in comparison to non diabetic ones. Therefore , intervention in expression or function of pro-apoptotic proteins (Fas, P53) could be a new goal in the treatment of periodontal disease of diabetic patients.

Background and Aims: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is one of the most prevalent oral cancers with increased risk in individuals younger than 40 years especially in developed countries. There are many evidences that people who have plenty of fruits and vegetables in their diets tend to have lower risk of cancer. In this study, we evaluated the anticancer effect of four medicinal plants of Otostegia Persica, Otostegia Michauxii, Otostegia Aucheri, and Hibiscus Sabdariffa on OSCC cell lines.
Materials and Methods: In this study, methanolic & dichloromethane extracts of the above medicinal plants were used in order to evaluate their effect on oral squamous cell carcinoma cell line in different concentrations and after 24 , 48 and 72 hrs by MTT assay test. Finally, the appropriate concentration for repeating the test were chosen.
Results: In this study, the mean amounts of IC50 for O. persica and O. Aucheri were less than the two other herbs and the least and most amount of IC50 were related to the dicloromethanolic extract of O. persica after 72 hrs and the water extract of H. sabdariffa after 24 hrs, respectively.
Conclusion: It was concluded that all of the plants evaluated especially O.Persica and O.Aucheri had anticancer properties and dichloromethalonic extracts of these plant were more effective than that of methanolic extract.
