Primary Outcome Measures:
  • At 24 weeks, relative to baseline, the mean reductions in probing pocket depth (PPD) will be used as primary efficacy endpoint. Additional primary endpoints are clinical attachment levels (CAL) and bleeding on probing (BOP) in the target pockets selected [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • PPD measurements at 6, 12 and 18 weeks will be used as secondary endpoints. Additional secondary endpoints are clinical attachment levels (CAL) and bleeding on probing (BOP) in the target pockets selected at screening, measured at weeks 6, 12 and 18. [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 80

Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: January 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: PerioChip Plus Drug: PerioChip Plus (Flurbiprofen +Chlorhexidine ), Flurbiprofen Chip, PerioChip (Chlorhexidine ) and Placebo Chip
Experimental: Flurbiprofen Chip Drug: PerioChip Plus (Flurbiprofen +Chlorhexidine ), Flurbiprofen Chip, PerioChip (Chlorhexidine ) and Placebo Chip
Active Comparator: PerioChip Drug: PerioChip Plus (Flurbiprofen +Chlorhexidine ), Flurbiprofen Chip, PerioChip (Chlorhexidine ) and Placebo Chip
Placebo Comparator: Placebo Chip Drug: PerioChip Plus (Flurbiprofen +Chlorhexidine ), Flurbiprofen Chip, PerioChip (Chlorhexidine ) and Placebo Chip

Detailed Description:

This is an 80 subjects, single-center, randomized, double-blinded, parallel, 4-arm clinical study (25 subjects in the PerioChip Plus and PerioChip arms and 15 subjects in the Flurbiprofen Chip and Placebo Chip arms).

At 24 weeks, relative to baseline, the mean reductions in probing pocket depth (PPD) will be used as primary efficacy endpoint. Additional primary endpoints are clinical attachment levels (CAL) and bleeding on probing (BOP) in the target pockets selected at screening, measured at weeks 24.

PPD measurements at 6, 12 and 18 weeks will be used as secondary endpoints. Additional secondary endpoints are clinical attachment levels (CAL) and bleeding on probing (BOP) in the target pockets selected at screening, measured at weeks 6, 12 and 18.

  • Minimum of 8 natural teeth
  • Availability for the 25 weeks duration of the study
  • Periodontal disease on a natural teeth characterized by the presence of at least 2 teeth with periodontal pockets of 6-9 mm in depth (target teeth) in order to reach baseline (day 1) with periodontal pockets of 5-8 mm in depth, without involving the apex of the tooth.
  • Females of childbearing potential must be non pregnant at entry and agree to use an adequate method of birth control during the study.
  • Demonstrate bleeding on probing to the base of the pocket at the pockets (sites) selected at the time of screening.

Exclusion Criteria:
