Denmark's Fertin Pharma, a world leader in development and manufacturing of medical chewing gum has initiated negotiations with the US armed forces regarding manufacturing of a new chewing gum which can replace soldiers' use of toothbrushes and toothpaste in the field.

The new chewing gum currently under development contains a special bactericidal agent which is released gradually and thereby keeps the teeth clean. The chewing gum was described last week at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists' convention in Nashville, USA.

Fertin Pharma is based in Vejle, southern Jutland and employs 260 people. In the last five years, the company has had more than 30% growth in annual sales of medical products. In 2003, Fertin Pharma invested DKK 500 m (USD 80 m) in a hightech factory for medical chewing gum production. The factory was approved by FDA in 2004, and is reportedly the world's only plant specifically designed to produce gum based tablets. The news was reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
