Dose-Response Study of Iocide Oral Rinse
The purpose of this study is to explore the dose-response relationship of Iocide oral rinse in a clinical trial of gingivitis.
Approximately sixty (60) otherwise healthy subjects having gingivitis will be randomized into the 3-month study to provide 40 total evaluable subjects (10 per group). Each study participant will have four visits: a screening visit up to 21 days before the beginning of the trial, a baseline visit at day 1, and visits at weeks 8 and 12. The duration of the dose/range study will be three months to facilitate compliance and ensure timely completion of the Phase II study.
Three dose/regimens will be evaluated against a placebo control oral rinse. Indices for gingivitis, plaque and bleeding will be scored and blood tests will be performed to determine the effect of the antimicrobial oral rinse on relative levels of biological markers of inflammation.

Gingivitis, Necrotizing Ulcerative
An acute or chronic GINGIVITIS characterized by redness and swelling, NECROSIS extending from the interdental papillae along the gingival margins, PAIN; HEMORRHAGE, necrotic odor, and often a pseudomembrane. The condition may extend to the ORAL MUCOSA; TONGUE; PALATE; or PHARYNX. The etiology is somewhat unclear, but may involve a complex of FUSOBACTERIUM NUCLEATUM along with spirochetes BORRELIA or TREPONEMA.
A loss of mucous substance of the mouth showing local excavation of the surface, resulting from the sloughing of inflammatory necrotic tissue. It is the result of a variety of causes, e.g., denture irritation, aphthous stomatitis (STOMATITIS, APHTHOUS); NOMA; necrotizing gingivitis (GINGIVITIS, NECROTIZING ULCERATIVE); TOOTHBRUSHING; and various irritants.
