Study on reversing periodontitis with Cp40 features on 6 ABC Action News

The study titled “Inhibition of pre-existing natural periodontitis in non-human primates by a locally administered peptide inhibitor of complement C3” led by Dr. John Lambris and Dr. George Hajishengallis was recently featured on 6 ABC Action News. The study, which was published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, has provided new hope for “millions of Americans,” as the video notes, for a treatment that may effectively reverse periodontitis. The study delivered Cp40, an inhibitor of protein C3, to the periodontal tissue just once a week. This reversed naturally occurring chronic periodontitis inflammation in a preclinical model, and “gums were looking much healthier” in the used animal model, the video also states.
