Study of Growing Biofilm by an Antiplaque Mouthrinse

2014-08-27 03:24:32 | BioPortfolio


The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of a new mouthrinse on dental plaque deposits.

The study is carried out on 50 volunteers that are asked to use the mouthrinse without any other oral hygiene measure, during 4 days. It is a double bind, cross-over, randomized design: the same subjects test the active product and the placebo.


The prevention of oral diseases is mainly targeted at the control of dental plaque. While tooth brushing is an effective method to remove plaque mechanically, it is not always sufficient and chemical antiplaque agents could be helpful. Some of them are used for their antibacterial action, the gold standard being chlorhexidine. Despite the great benefit of this bactericidal approach, the search continues for active ingredients that could prevent dental plaque formation without affecting the biological equilibrium within the oral cavity.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of a mouthrinse, containing red grape seed extract and nicométhanol fluorhydrate, in the control of dental plaque deposit in a 4-days plaque regrowth model.

The study is a double blind randomized cross-over design, involving 50 healthy volunteers. During the treatment periods (4 days) no oral hygiene, measures excepting rinsing with the allocated product (active/non active) are permitted.

On day 1, the subjects receive professional prophylaxis. The mouthrinse is used pure, three times per day, after each meal. On day 5, subjects will be scored for disclosed plaque using the Quigley Hein index (modified by Turesky).

After a 2 weeks wash-out period, the subject receives the other product (active/non active) and uses it as in the first period.

On day 5, subjects will be scored again for disclosed plaque

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Exudate from seeds of the grape plant Vitis vinifera, composed of oils and secondary plant metabolites (BIOFLAVONOIDS and polyphenols) credited with important medicinal properties.

A dehydrated extract of thyroid glands. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.

A plant genus in the family BERBERIDACEAE. The common names of Barberry or Oregon Grape are also used for MAHONIA. The similar-named Bayberry is the unrelated MYRICA. Oregon Grape was classified by Pursh as a Berberis but Nuttall claimed it is different enough to call it a new genus, MAHONIA. Botanists insist on this name while horticulturists stay with Mahonia. They are shrubs with yellow wood and usually three-branched spines at the base of leafstalks. Flowers are yellow, six-petaled and fruit is a berry with one to several seeds. Members contain BERBERINE.

A dehydrated extract of thyroid glands from domesticated animals. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.

One or more types of plant seed proteins providing the large amounts of AMINO ACIDS utilized in GERMINATION and SEEDLING growth. As seeds are the major food source from AGRICULTURAL CROPS, seed storage proteins are a major source of DIETARY PROTEINS.
