IADR and GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare announce winners of 2009 Innovation in Oral Care Awards
Date:3/17/2009

Alexandria, Va. The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare today announced the 2009 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 sixth year of award support, GSK Consumer Healthcare has contributed nearly $1.4 million. Each of the three 2009 winners will receive a $75,000 unrestricted research grant, which is funded by GSK Consumer Healthcare and administered by IADR. The 2009 winners are:

  • Eric Reynolds, B.Sc., Ph.D., The University of Melbourne School of Dental Science, Australia, for "Development of Oxantel to Prevent Periodontopathogenic Biofilm Formation." Oxantel is already approved for use in humans at relatively high concentrations as a treatment for intestinal parasites. Reynolds and his team have patented its use for the treatment of periodontal diseases. Once the efficacy of Oxantel against periodontopathogenic bacterial biofilms has been demonstrated, it should be possible to develop a professional product that will result in improved oral health for persons with periodontitis.

  • Rena D'Souza, B.D.S., M.S., D.D.S., Ph.D., Baylor College of Dentistry, Texas A&M Health Science Center in Dallas, USA, for "Nanostructured Peptide Hydrogels and Stem Cells for Dentin-Pulp Complex Regeneration." This innovative research will develop and test novel peptide-based hydrogels as scaffolds to promote the differentiation of adult stem cells and the formation of dentin and pulp tissues. This biologically based endodontic therapy offers an important alternative for individuals in a clinical situation with an otherwise poor prognosis.

  • Sandra Bordin, Ph.D., The University of Washington School of Dentistry, Seattle, USA, for "Optical Coherence Tomography for Non-invasive Diagnosis of
