Norwegian Society for Photobiology and Photomedicine meeting at NIOM -

NIOM is hosting the annual meeting of the Norwegian Society for Photobiology and Photomedicine (NOFFOF) on November 2nd, 2018.

Disrupting the white matter -

“There are more animals living in the scum on the teeth in a man`s mouth, than there are men in a whole kingdom”.

Biofilms and their properties -

Oral biofilm‐associated diseases, such as caries and periodontitis, represent global public health challenges. The diseases develop as a result of dysbiosis of the oral microbiome. There is a long tradition in medicine for treating bacterial infections by the use of antibiotics. Unfortunately, biofilm bacteria are significantly less sensitive to antibacterial agents than are their planktonic counterparts. This property of biofilm challenges us in our daily work as dentists, and might explain why many oral prophylactic agents predicted to be efficacious in vitro, only show marginal effect in vivo.

Using natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES) as photosensitiser solubiliser -

ABSTRACT   Background and Objective Several photosensitisers (PS) used in experimental bacterial phototoxicity studies are poorly water- soluble and tend to aggregate. Specific vehicles can improve and control properties such as aqueous solubility, aggregation and photoreactivity. Natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES) are eutectic mixtures of two or more naturally occurring metabolite components in a specific […]
