There is probably no disease that is more common to every man, woman, and child than dental caries. Although caries is not a serious disease in terms of fatalities, it remains as one of modern medicine’s most common un-curable diseases and one of modern man’s most consistent medical expenses. To find a cure for dental caries is a very complex problem. Of particular interest is the relation of protein to the structure of the tooth and the decay process. The purpose of this paper was to duplicate experimental conditions in an earlier study conducted by Shaw and Bailey. Their study was on the cariogenic activity or norethandrolone, as well as its effect on radio-phosphorus uptake in the molars of rats, they used caries-test diets. The hope was to study the effect that a protein anabolic agent has on mineral uptake in teeth, and the relation of this to dental caries.
