A one-year randomized, double-blind, active-controlled multi-center phase 2 clinical trial to assess the safety and the anti-caries efficacy of nonfluoride dentifrices with 1.5%, 4.0% and 8.0% arginine in comparison with 0.24% sodium fluoride (1100 ppm F) dentifrice control in 10 to 14-year-old children
