Revolutionizing dentistry: World’s first tooth-regrowth drug enters human trials

The world’s first tooth-regrowth drug is on the brink of reality! Japanese pharmaceutical startup Toregem Biopharma is set to initiate clinical trials in July next year. This groundbreaking drug, developed after successful tests on mice and ferrets, aims to stimulate tooth growth by suppressing a specific gene. If human trials yield positive results, a clinical trial for children with anodontia is planned for 2025. The goal? To offer an additional option alongside dentures and implants for those without a full set of teeth. Dr. Katsu Takahashi’s dream of growing new teeth is becoming a promising reality.
