01/01/1994 - "A dentifrice containing 5% potassium nitrate, 1.3% soluble pyrophosphate, 1.5% polyvinylmethyl ether and maleic acid (PVM/MA) copolymer and 0.243% sodium fluoride in a silica base (Sensitive/Tartar Control) has been developed to concomitantly control tartar, caries and dentinal hypersensitivity. "
01/01/1998 - "The objective of this double-blind clinical study was to investigate the anticalculus efficacy of a new improved tartar control dentifrice formulation containing tetrasodium pyrophosphate, sodium tripolyphosphate, PVM/MA copolymer and 0.243% sodium fluoride in a silica base (New and Improved Colgate Tartar Control Fluoride Toothpaste with Micro-Cleaning Crystals) as the test dentifrice, compared to a previously marketed, American Dental Association-accepted, tartar control dentifrice formulation containing tetrasodium pyrophosphate, PVM/MA copolymer and 0.243% sodium fluoride in a silica base (Colgate Tartar Control Fluoride Toothpaste with Micro-Cleaning Crystals), as the positive control dentifrice. "
01/01/1994 - "The effect of a dentifrice containing 5.0% potassium nitrate, 1.3% soluble pyrophosphate, 1.5% PVM/MA copolymer, and 0.243% sodium fluoride in a silica base (Sensitive/Tartar Control) on dentinal hypersensitivity over a twelve-week period was compared to a commercially available dentifrice containing 5% potassium nitrate and 0.76% sodium monofluorophosphate in a dicalcium phosphate dihydrate base (Sensodyne-F). "
01/01/2008 - "The objective of this double-blind clinical study, conducted in harmony with Volpe-Manhold design for studies of dental calculus, was to compare the efficacy of a dentifrice containing 0.3% triclosan/2.0% polyvinylmethyl ether/maleic acid (PVM/MA) copolymer/0.243% sodium fluoride in a 17% dual silica base (Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste) to that of a commercially available dentifrice containing 0.243% sodium fluoride in a silica base (Crest Cavity Protection Toothpaste) with respect to the reduction of supragingival calculus formation.

01/01/2000 - "The objective of this double-blind clinical study, conducted using the Volpe-Manhold evaluation method for dental calculus, was to compare the effect on supragingival calculus formation of a dentifrice containing tetrasodium pyrophosphate, sodium tripolyphosphate, and a copolymer in a 0.243% sodium fluoride/silica base (Test Dentifrice), to that of a commercially available calculus-inhibiting dentifrice containing tetrasodium pyrophosphate and a copolymer in a 0.243% sodium fluoride/silica base (Positive Control Dentifrice).
