Date:5/15/2008

Alexandria, Va. The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare today announced the 2008 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.

Sharing the $225,000 unrestricted research grant, which is funded by GSK Consumer Healthcare and administered by the IADR, are:

  • Urban Hagg, D.D.S., The Prince Philip Dental Hospital, University of Hong Kong, China, and co-investigators Ricky Wong, Lakshman Samaranayake, Richard Kao, and Michelle Yuen for A Natural Edible Agent for Reduction of Oral Biofilm. This research study will look at Prunus mume, a common fruit in Asia, and its effectiveness in inhibiting bacteria commonly found in oral biofilm. If shown to be effective, Prunus mume will be accepted as a natural oral biofilm-reducing agent, which would ultimately help in the prevention of dental caries and periodontal disease.

  • Keith Kirkwood, D.D.S., Ph.D., Microbiology and Immunology, Medical University of South Carolina, for Targeting Post-transcriptional Signaling for Periodontitis. This research study will explore the role of posttranscriptional cytokine regulation in periodontal inflammation and bone loss, which may yield new possibilities for the treatment of periodontal diseases and other chronic inflammatory diseases.

  • David T.W. Wong, D.M.D., D.M.Sc., University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), School of Dentistry, and coinvestigators Wei Lao and Fang Wei for SPITDX: A Universal Platform for Salivary Biomarker Detection. This research project aims to develop a universal platform, where salivary biomarkers associated with disease phenotypes can be rapidly detected in under five minutes. This platform will allow scientific results to be transferred faster, allowing patients who su
