About

For proving the potential of tropical medicaments on clinical parameters of periodontitis, a comprehensive assessment is required between therapeutic medicaments. The main aim of the study was to clinically evaluate and compare the efficacy of indocyanine green mediated photodynamic therapy (PDT) and aleo vera (AV) extract when used as an adjunct therapy to scaling and root planning (SRP) for treatment of chronic periodontitis. One hundred and fifty patients included in this study were randomly distributed in three treatment groups Group I (SRP), Group II (SRP+PDT) and Group III (SRP+AV). Four clinical parameters plaque index (PI), bleeding on probing (BoP), periodontal (PD) pocket depth and clinical attachment level (CAL) were evaluated at three time points baseline, 3rd and 6th month respectively. Additionally the amount of three inflammatory cytokines IL-6, IL-8 and TNF- α in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) was identified using enzyme linked immune-sorbent assay (ELISA) technique.
