Abstract Background: Gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related mortality and the fourth most common cancer globally. This study was conducted to evaluate the usefulness of miR-21 as a less invasive screening and prognostic marker in Gastric cancer patients from Sri Lanka. Further the H. pylori status was investigated. Methods: Twenty patients who […]

Abstract – Discovery of novel antimicrobials is a necessity due to the emerging antimicrobial resistance. Medicinal plants are a rich source for discovering novel antimicrobial compounds. Traditional dressings made of Madhuca longifolia (mee)has been used in traditional medicinal practices in Sri Lanka to treat wounds, but its antimicrobial properties have not been scientifically investigated. The […]

Introduction Finding alternative antimicrobials for the emerging antimicrobial resistance is a global challenge. Traditional dressings made of Rhipsalis baccifera and Pyrrosia heterophylla have been used in traditional practice to treat woundsin Sri Lanka. However, their antimicrobial properties have not been scientifically investigated. This study investigates the antimicrobial activity of these two plant extracts against MRSA […]
