Thanks for visiting TheraBreath.com to learn more about the recent independent clinical mouthwash study conducted by ESSEX TESTING.
The certified laboratory determined
'NOTHING WORKS FASTER AND LASTS LONGER TO STOP BAD BREATH THAN THERABREATH'
Below are more specific details of the study conducted in 2011 as taken from their test summary. A total of 30 (30/30) test subjects (8 males and 22 females ranging in age from 23 to 69 years) were enrolled and successfully completed the test procedure. At each evaluation, a trained technician measured the malodor of the breath using the Halimeter®. The following table presents a summary of mean Halimeter® readings:
Mean Halimeter® Measurements
|Mean Score||p-value||Mean % Change from Baseline||% Subjects Improving|
|Immediately Post-Application of test product||56.1*±14.0||<0.001||-18.0%||100%|
|12 Hrs. and 15 Mins. Post-Application of test product||59.6'±13.3||<0.001||-11.7%||83.0%|
|24 Hours Post- Application of test product||67.1 + 13.7||0.450||-0.2%||53.0%|
* Statistically significant difference from baseline, p<0.05
When compared with baseline, there was:
- a mean percent improvement of 18.0% observed immediately after a single application of the test product, with 100% of the subjects showing improvement;
- a mean percent improvement of 11.7% observed 12 hours and 15 minutes after a single application of the test product, with 83% of the subjects showing improvement; and
- a mean percent improvement of 0.2% observed 24 hours after a single application of the test product, with 53% of the subjects showing improvement.
The improvements observed immediately post-application and 12 hours and 15 minutes after a single application were statistically significant (p<0.05) when compared with baseline.
At the conclusion of a 24-hour clinical efficacy evaluation conducted in 30 subjects, TheraBreath Oral Rinse was associated with the following improvements: Malodor of the breath was significantly improved immediately after and 12 hours and 15 minutes after a single use of the test product. TheraBreath was the only product proven in the laboratory trial to last beyond 12 hours.
