VANCOUVER, Sept. 5 /CNW/ - Ondine Biopharma Corporation (TSX: OBP;
AIM: OBP), a medical technology company developing photodisinfection-based
products, today announced that a poster entitled "Photodisinfection in the
Treatment of Chronic Periodontitis" will be presented by Company
representatives at the American Academy of Periodontology's (AAP) annual
meeting. This year's AAP meeting is being held at the Washington State
Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, Washington on September 6-9, 2008.
"We are pleased to have the opportunity to present photodisinfection to
the U.S. periodontal community," said Carolyn Cross, Ondine's President and
CEO. "This peer-reviewed poster highlights the positive results of the
Company's Multi-Centre Trial using its Photodisinfection System. Periodontal
pockets treated with photodisinfection (220mW laser plus photosensitizer) in
addition to scaling and root planing (SRP) yielded statistically significant
reductions in pocket depth (p=0.01) as well as increases in clinical
attachment level (p=0.002) when compared to pockets treated only with SRP."
