IADR and GSK Consumer Healthcare announce winners of 2010 Innovation in Oral Care Awards
Date:5/14/2010

Alexandria, Va., USA The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare today announced the 2010 winners of the annual IADR/GSK Innovation in Oral Care Awards. The three prestigious awards recognize research in innovative oral care technologies that may maintain and improve oral health and the quality of life.

In its seventh year of award support, GSK Consumer Healthcare has contributed more than $1.6 million. Each of the three 2010 winners will receive a $75,000 unrestricted research grant, which is funded by GSK Consumer Healthcare and administered by IADR. The 2010 winners are:

Owing to its excellent biocompatibility, it is used in a wide range of applications as bone and dental implant material. However, it is well recognized that bacterial infection is a significant cause of implant failure. There is thus an urgent need for technologies that can effectively prevent such infection from occurring. Implant coatings with durable antimicrobial properties together with enhanced bone compatibility will lead to a reduction in the total number of revisions and an increase in the expected implant lifespan, considerably reducing the attributable economic burden and patient morbidity.

Daniel Grenier, Ph.D., Groupe de Recherche en Ecologie Buccale, Universit Laval, Qubec, Canada, for "Therapeutic Potential of Citrus Auraptene for Periodontal Disease." Given the high prevalence of gum diseases in the population, if this study demonstrates that auraptene possesses beneficial properties for oral health, it will support its common use as a preventive or therapeutic agent. Plant-derived natural compounds endowed with a capacity to exert
