We have extensive experience of running clinical malodour trials determining levels of volatile sulphur compounds found within human breath samples.
Typically evaluation of oral malodour may include:
- Optimised statistical design and inclusion of appropriate controls
- Running of small-scale pilot to set test parameters
- Baseline measurements of volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) found within the subjects’ breath
- supervised treatment with an oral care product
- Post product breath measurements to determine VSC levels at various time points
