Dose-Response Study of Iocide Oral Rinse

2014-08-27 03:14:38 | BioPortfolio


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.
