A Study to Investigate the Anti-Plaque Effect of AN0128 Toothpaste
The objective of this study was to evaluate the anti-plaque efficacy of the Anacor prototype dentrifice as compared to commercial control products following a single use of the dentrifice.
The widespread successful use of triclosan as an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent is well documented. The standard dentrifice has demonstrated a robust anti-plaque and anti-inflammatory effect providing multiple benefits. There is a clear value to identify additional agents with the same dual action with a comparable or an enhanced level of efficacy. This study examined the anti-plaque efficacy following a single use of the prototype dentifrice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Gram-positive Asporogenous Rods, Regular
A group of regular rod-shaped bacteria that stain gram-positive and do not produce endospores.
Pest Control, Biological
The use of biological mechanisms, usually involving living organisms such as bacteria, for the reduction or regulation of the population of noxious, destructive, or dangerous pests. Environmental concerns have focused attention on natural forms of disease control as potentially safe and effective alternatives to chemical pesticides. This has led to increased efforts to develop control strategies that rely on natural predators and parasites or that involve genetically engineered microbial pest control agents.
United States Office Of National Drug Control Policy
A component of the Executive Office of the President established by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988. The Office establishes policies, priorities, and objectives for national DRUG AND NARCOTIC CONTROL. The goals of the program are to reduce illicit drug use, manufacturing, and trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences.
A dentifrice in paste form; usually contains binder, humectant, an abrasive, a detergent, flavoring agent and often caries preventives, anti-infective agents or other medicaments.
Social Control, Informal
Those forms of control which are exerted in less concrete and tangible ways, as through folkways, mores, conventions, and public sentiment.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of an experimental toothpaste on maintaining gingival health over a 24 week period measured through modified gingival index, bleeding,...
This is an open label, single center, controlled study with each subject's two treatment plaque areas assigned by the investigator 1:1 to (a) PH-10 with ambient light exposure and (b) PH-1...
Clinical research study to determine the anti-plaque efficacy of prototype dentifrices via a 4-day brushing regiment
Investigation of inhibitory effect of prototype toothpaste on dental plaque formation via modified gingival margin plaque index method.
Evaluate clinical efficacy of a prototype toothpaste on control of dental plaque gingival inflammation
OBJECTIVES: Plaque is never fully removed by brushing and may act as a reservoir for antibacterial ingredients, contributing to their substantive action. This study investigates...
We assessed advertisements for children's toothpaste in two widely read US parenting magazines. Data on the number and type of toothpaste advertisements in two parenting magazines were collected from...
The aim of this study was to determine the contribution of plaque and saliva towards the prolonged activity, also called substantivity, of three antimicrobial mouthrinses (Listerine®, Meridol®, Cres...
Abstract Objective. To compare the effects on enamel demineralization and fluoride (F) retention of two different brushing-rinsing regimens. Material and methods. An in-situ caries model with orthodon...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: There is a paucity of data in relation to the possible emergence of triclosan (TCS)-resistant bacteria following long-term exposure to TCS toothpaste. Therefore, this study i...
