Products developed in the laboratory FUNED are cheaper and had good results in tests

Researchers at the Ezequiel Dias Foundation (FUNED) developed from several experiments, a gel and mouthwash (antiseptic) based on propolis that has potential action against fungi, antitumor activity, and prevent decay. The result will be presented at the XXI National Meeting of Directors and the Public Service Dental Technicians (Enatespo) of 28 to 30 May in Belo Horizonte (MG).

According to the FUNED biologist and an author of the study, Esther Margarida Bastos, the products are excellent results, no side effects and cost much less than that of similar commercial products.

The gel is recommended for the treatment of candidiasis chronic atrophic common in people who use the prosthesis. Already the mouthwash has filed against various mucositis and unlike what we find in the market, the base product produced propolis, chlorhexidine is not done - very strong antibiotic, which has the side effect of yellowing teeth.

The research has already passed the laboratory tests and clinical trials in humans conducted in partnership with the faculties of Dentistry, Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC Minas) and Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG). The formulas have also been patented.
