This trial has been completed.
|Start date||March 2015|
|End date||September 2016|
|Trial size||23 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02366585, PERIOC_CTP001|
The main purpose of the trial is to investigate the effect of locally delivered ciclosporin as an adjunct to non-surgical mechanical debridement in the treatment of chronic periodontitis and to compare it to mechanical debridement alone.
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
Treatment of two periodontal pockets with ciclosporin gel Non-treatment of two periodontal pockets in same patient as comparator
Probing pocket depth (PPD)
time frame: 3 months
Bleeding on Probing (BoP)
time frame: 3 months
All participants at least 30 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Patients in good general health - 2 pairs of contralateral interproximal periodontal sites with probing depths of ≥7mm in single-rooted teeth not associated with furcations or root furrows.The test sites should have a distance of at least two teeth to the control sites. - Teeth selected should have a vital pulp as determined by thermal or electric stimulation Exclusion Criteria: - Patients already included in other clinical trials involving therapeutic intervention (either medical or dental) - Periodontal treatment during the last 6 months - Antibiotic treatment 6 months prior to the start of the trial - Antibiotic prophylaxis required for dental treatment - Patients with acute infectious lesions in the areas of intended treatment - Regular anti-inflammatory medication - Known history of ciclosporin allergy - Ongoing medication that may affect the clinical features of periodontitis - Patients who are smokers - Patients that are immuno-compromized or on immunosuppressive medication - Patients who are pregnant or lactating
