Effects of Low-Dose Doxycycline on Oral Bone Loss

2014-07-23 21:52:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary purpose of this clinical trial is to determine whether low-dose doxycycline can reduce alveolar bone density loss in postmenopausal osteopenic women with periodontitis and not on hormone replacement therapy (i.e., estrogen deficient).

Description

The primary purpose of this clinical trial is to determine whether low-dose doxycycline (LDD) can reduce alveolar bone density loss in postmenopausal osteopenic women with periodontitis and not on hormone replacement therapy (i.e., estrogen deficient). The effects of LDD on alveolar bone height loss, progressive periodontal attachment loss, systemic bone mineral density, gingival crevicular fluid biochemical markers of collagen degradation and bone resorption and serum biomarkers of bone formation, bone resorption and inflammation also will be assessed. In addition, another objective is to determine if the microbial effects obtained with LDD over two years are equivalent to a placebo control. This clinical trial involves two clinical sites: the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry and Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. A total of 128 postmenopausal osteopenic women with periodontitis between the ages of 45 and 70 at the time of telephone screening will be randomized to LDD or placebo groups and subjects will be followed for two years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation and loss of connective tissues supporting or surrounding the teeth. This may involve any part of the PERIODONTIUM. Periodontitis is currently classified by disease progression (CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS; AGGRESSIVE PERIODONTITIS) instead of age of onset. (From 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, American Academy of Periodontology)

Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.

Inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction in the presence of little local factors such as DENTAL PLAQUE and DENTAL CALCULUS. This highly destructive form of periodontitis often occurs in young people and was called early-onset periodontitis, but this disease also appears in old people.

A synthetic TETRACYCLINE derivative with similar antimicrobial activity. Animal studies suggest that it may cause less tooth staining than other tetracyclines. It is used in some areas for the treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria (MALARIA, FALCIPARUM).

A periodontal pathogen which is a gram-negative member of BACTEROIDETES. It is implicated in PERIODONTITIS.
