In the article titled “Biological Effects of Medicinal Plants on Induced Periodontitis: A Systematic Review” [1], it is stated in Table 1 that Hosadurga et al., cited as references 4 and 16 in the article, examined the anti-inflammatory action of 2% curcumin and Ocimum sanctum gel in a separate model. However, the authors of these articles informed us that they studied the gingival index, which is an indirect measure of inflammation in the gingival tissues. They also assessed the antimicrobial activity but did not publish the data, since they encountered a problem with the solubility and did not get a well-defined clear zone of inhibition. Corrected information about references [4] and [16] in Table 1 is as follows.
