PLAQUE SUBCOMMITTEE MAY CONSIDER EFFECTIVENESS OF COSMETIC CLAIMS such as oral malodor, tooth stain and "mouth feel," subcommittee members indicated at a Dec. 17 meeting of FDA's Plaque Subcommittee. "I do not know if we have to limit ourselves to drug attributes," Jorgen Slots, DDS, PhD, University of California, contended. "I believe that we can also come up with recommendations how the effectiveness can be performed in a cosmetic setting. I do not feel that we have a limitation given to us from FDA only to consider, in a narrow sense, drug attributes," he stated.
