In the project, which is funded by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, a completely new, cost-effective and safe method for the causal treatment of caries is to be developed as a "proof of concept".
In detail, the project therefore deals with the following aspects:
- Screening and characterisation of suitable bacteriophages
- Development of the cultivation process
- Formulation and integration of bacteriophages into chewing gum
- Analysis of the caries reducing potential in the application
