Efficacy evaluation of toothpaste -
Part 1. General principles
1 Scope   
This Part of WS/T 326 specifies the definition of toothpaste effectiveness, efficacy
evaluation’s scope and general principles, and clinical trial requirements.
This Part applies to the toothpaste products which claim to have some effect, and of
which the physiochemical properties and health-safety indicators comply with relevant
national standards.
2 Terms and definitions 
The following terms and definitions apply to this document.
2.1 efficacy of anti-caries
The efficacy that the products, through inhibiting enamel demineralization or
promoting the remineralization of teeth, achieve to control the formation of dental
caries; or through reducing plaque bacterial and acid production so as to achieve to
prevent the generation of dental caries.
2.2 efficacy of control dental plaque or gingivitis
The efficacy that the products, through chemical composition, generate the inhibition
of plaque and (or) reduction of gingival inflammation such as swelling and bleeding.
2.3 efficacy on dentin hypersensitivity
The efficacy that the products have anti-dentin hypersensitivity symptoms (i.e. the
chemical and physical stimulation such as cold, hot, sour, sweet, probing causes tooth
to generate abnormal short and sharp pain) role.
3 Efficacy evaluation scope 
Anti-caries efficacy, inhibiting dental plaque and (or) reducing the efficacy of gingival
inflammation, anti-dentine hypersensitivity efficacy.
method consistency.
5 Clinical trial requirements 
5.1 When a product containing certain active ingredients is trialed for efficacy
evaluation for the first time, it shall be carried out at least two independent clinical
5.2 When a known-efficacy active ingredient is claimed to have new efficacy, it
requires at least two additional independent clinical trials.
5.3 The products containing the same active ingredient which has been validated by
clinical trial, shall prove its efficacy through the following methods.
a) Fluoride toothpaste products. Adopt laboratory evaluation method to validate; or
there is no statistical significance of difference BETWEEN two independent
clinical trials of the subject product AND positive control.
b) Non-fluoride toothpaste products. Adopt that the two independent clinical trials
of the subject product is superior to the negative control or placebo control.
