The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) encourages
submission of investigator-initiated grant applications for Phase III
clinical trials to assess the efficacy and safety of preventive or
therapeutic interventions for oral infectious diseases. Such interventions
should have high potential for translation into clinical practice and for
improving the oral health status of all Americans. NIDCRs prior support for
basic and clinical research has shown that dental caries, periodontal
diseases, and many other oral diseases involve infectious processes that
result from the interplay of infectious agents, environmental influences
(e.g., diet), genetic factors, and host response. This initiative seeks to
accelerate the translation of such findings into well-documented, cost-
effective interventions of proven efficacy for preventing and treating oral
infectious diseases. Clinical trials focusing on the periodontal diseases and
dental caries are particularly encouraged given the uniquely prominent role
that these disorders have in the delivery and cost of oral health care as
well as their widespread prevalence in the population. However, clinical
trials involving other oral conditions with an infectious cause bacterial,
viral, or fungal will also be considered responsive to this PA.
Applications that address novel interventions, higher risk population groups
with oral health care disparities, research gaps, and common pathologic
mechanisms are particularly encouraged.
