- Inhibitory effects of cranberry polyphenols on formation and acidogenicity of Streptococcus mutans biofilmsSimone Duarte
Eastman Department of Dentistry Center for Oral Biology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, USA
FEMS Microbiol Lett 257:50-6. 2006..The flavonols are comprised of mostly quercetin glycosides, and the PAC are largely A-type oligomers of epicatechin. Our data show that proanthocyanidins and flavonols are the active constituents of cranberry against S. mutans...
- Effect of a novel type of propolis and its chemical fractions on glucosyltransferases and on growth and adherence of mutans streptococciSimone Duarte
Department of Physiological Sciences, Dentistry School of Piracicaba, State University of Campinas Brazil, Sao Paulo
Biol Pharm Bull 26:527-31. 2003..The data showed that propolis type 6 remarkably reduced GTF activity and inhibited mutans streptococci growth and adherence; these biological activities are associated with its nonpolar components...
- In vitro and in vivo effects of isolated fractions of Brazilian propolis on caries developmentMitsue F Hayacibara
Department of Physiological Sciences, Dentistry Faculty of Piracicaba, State University of Campinas, Av Limeira, 901 PIRACICABA SP, CEP 13414 903, Brazil
J Ethnopharmacol 101:110-5. 2005..The data suggest that the putative cariostatic compounds of propolis type-3 and -12 are mostly non-polar; and H-fr should be the fraction of choice for identifying further potentially novel anti-caries agents...
