  Problem statement:The fungal infections could be life-threatening in immunocompromised patients. Candida albicans is the most frequent fungi in the oral cavity. Approach: The first step for treatment could be done using topical antifungal agents. Nystatine is a choice for mentioned usage but there are some problems in its using including: unfavorite taste, frequency of usage, etc. Finding better replacements is the subject of many studies. Results: This study was carried out to find an alternative for Nystatine. The study was designed based on laboratory investigations to investigate the antifungal activity of zingiber offcinale (Ginger) on Candida albicans. Candida albicanse (PTCC 5027, ATCC10231) was obtained from Iranian microbial collection and was confirmed by Germ Tube formation test. Ethanolic ginger extract was prepared. The antifungal activity of the extract was determined using Agar dilution and disc diffusion techniques. Data were analyzed by ANOVA test. Conclusion/Recommendations:The results showed that the ethanolic extract was effective on Candida albicans (2 mg mL-1) at the concentration of 1:5. The study indicates that ginger extract might have promise in treatment of oral candidiasis.

  This research is a double blinded clinical study that tries to assay the thrapeutical effects of olive leaf extract on the oral minor aphthous ulcers in comparison with dexametasone mouth wash. The statistical society of the study was 80 patients which were equally divided into 2 groups. One group received olive leaf extract and the other group received dexametasone mouth wash (elixir 0.1%). The diameter of ulcers measured by periodontal prob(Williams) and the amount of pain determined by visual scale analysis. The data were collected on the first, third and fifth day after beginning of the treatment. The result showed that there is no significant difference between two groups based on size and pain reduction (p>0.05). The results were statistically analyzed by Greenhouse Geisser Test and Q square (p<0.05). The project was also approved by ethic committee of Kerman University of Medical Sciences (No.10/61/10241).
