New title registered at the Cochrane Oral Health Group

The Cochrane Oral Health Group met for their monthly Editorial Meeting this week and have registered one new title as a result:

Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy for the treatment of periodontal and peri-implant diseases

The review will be led by Dr Pia Jervoe-Storm from Germany (University of Bonn), with the assistance of Soren Jepsen (University of Bonn) and Jorg Eberhard (Hannover Medical School). Cochrane Oral Health Group editors Helen Worthington and Ian Needleman will also join the team.

The review will look at antimicrobial photodynamic therapy compared to subgingival scaling and root planing in non-surgical periodontal therapy and treatment of peri-implant diseases. We look forward to receiving the protocol from this very experienced team!
