    New study demonstrates effectiveness of BLIS M18TM probiotic
    February 1, 2015
    BLIS Technologies Ltd, Dunedin (BLT)
    BLT this week received advice of the publication of results of a new
    independent clinical trial of BLIS M18, a novel probiotic for the support of
    oral and periodontal health. The Indian clinical trial involved 28 adult
    volunteers with moderate to severe periodontitis. The results demonstrated
    that the sub-group of participants taking the probiotic BLIS M18 lozenges for
    one month recorded statistically significant improvements in multiple indices
    of periodontal health. The research has recently been published in the
    International Journal of Pharma and Bio Science.
    In commenting, the Chief Executive of BLIS Technologies, Dr Barry Richardson,
    noted that this independent study provided further evidence of the
    effectiveness of BLIS M18 in improving periodontal health. The study authors
    summarized their findings by stating that "Streptococcus salivarius M18 may
    be potentially useful as an aid in improving the oral health of periodontal
    BLIS M18 is a member of the bacterial species Streptococcus salivarius
    originally developed by BLIS Technologies Ltd in Dunedin, New Zealand for the
    support of oral health. One aspect of the probiotic's mechanism of action is
    the production of multiple bacteriocins (naturally produced substances) that
    selectively inhibit the growth of oral pathogens involved in the development
    of dental caries including Streptococcus mutans.
