Video: New Clinical Trial Results Show Germ-Killing Action of LISTERINE(R) Antiseptic Kills Germs in the Mouth Before They Travel to the Bloodstream

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The results of a new clinical study demonstrate that the plaque and gingivitis germ-killing action of LISTERINE((R)) Antiseptic significantly reduces the amount of germs that travel from the mouth to the bloodstream in people with mild to moderate gingivitis.

Anaerobic bacteria are the type most associated with gum disease. The results will be presented during a symposium at the American Dental Association Annual Session in Hawaii.

"The findings from this study serve as compelling evidence to further the theory that plaque and gingivitis germs that migrate from the mouth to the bloodstream may contribute to broader health problems such as diabetes and heart disease," said Daniel H. Fine, DMD, chair of the Department of Oral Biology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and lead investigator of the study. "While additional research in this area is necessary, this study undoubtedly proves that LISTER
