Oral malodor was measured by an organoleptic test and the OralChroma. An oral examination was conducted, including the assessment of decayed teeth, periodontal status, and tongue coating. The presence of N-benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide.
Minimum Order Quantity Na-Benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide.
Development of a diagnostic test for anaerobic periodontal infections based on plaque hydrolysis of benzoyl-DL-arginine-naphthylamide.
The aim of this study is to analyze the correlations between plaque index (PlI), gingival index (GI), probable pocket depth (PPD), clinical attachment level (CAL), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), N-benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide (BANA) and sulfide ion activity (SIA) of diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis with regard to disease activity detected by AST levels. A total of 95 sites from eight diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis and 74 sites from eight systemically healthy patients with chronic periodontitis were enrolled in the study.
Recent studies have shown that the extent of hydrolysis by plaque of the trypsin substrate, N-benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide (BANA), correlates with the numbers and proportions of spirochetes in subgingival plaque samples, and appears to be an indicator of clinical disease. In this study, BANA hydrolysis by subgingival plaque was evaluated in a blind manner for its ability to reflect both clinical parameters and subgingival levels of bacteria and spirochetes.
