Chewing gum could be a new tool to block the spread of COVID-19. Dr. Henry Daniell from Penn Dental Medicine tells HealthCall's Lee Kelso how his lab has infused chewing gum with a plant-based enzyme that acts like flypaper to trap the virus, plus block the receptor so it can't enter your body.
In experiments using saliva samples from COVID-19 patients, the gum, which contains the ACE2 protein, neutralized the virus.

The Center's first IDEA Prize was awarded to Dr. Henry Daniell at Penn Dental Medicine, and his collaborator, Dr. Daeyon Lee, at Penn Engineering.
With a new training grant, awards, and new faculty and publications, the Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry is leveraging technological advancements to improve oral health.
The inaugural Advancing Oral & Craniofacial Health Award was awarded to Penn Dental Medicine’s Dr. Eugene Ko for a project titled “Baby Seal: Promoting Intrinsic Sucking in Cleft Palate Infant Bottle Feeding.” Dr. Ko is collaborating with Dr. Shu Yang at Penn Engineering.
Two new research grant programs have been launched in partnership with the CiPD to help advance innovative breakthroughs in dental medicine, with Penn Health-Tech and the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation.
The official launch of the CiPD brought together partners across Penn and invited guests to share the goals and vision of this unique collaboration.
A productive collaboration between the School of Dental Medicine and School of Engineering and Applied Science led to the microbe-killing robots for biofilm elimination.
