Background: Recent trends suggest using novel host-modulating agents as a treatment strategy for chronic periodontitis. Glucosamine sulfate (GS) was proven to have anti-inflammatory actions related to its ability to suppress neutrophil functions. Orthoboon, an anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory drug, has shown to have a positive therapeutic effect due to its constituents made of a combination of GS, Vitamin C, and collagen. The aim of the study was to evaluate the host modulatory effects of Orthoboon on periodontal status and to estimate the C reactive protein (CRP) levels before and after nonsurgical periodontal therapy (NSPT). Materials and Methods: A total number of 40 patients with chronic periodontitis were randomly divided into two groups of 20 patients each. The test group patients (n = 20) received 500 mg Orthoboon three times daily for 45 days. Prior to the initiation of Orthoboon, all patients in both test group and control group were subjected to Phase I periodontal therapy. CRP levels were estimated immediately after phase I therapy and 45 days after therapy. Clinical parameters including plaque index, gingival index, and bleeding index were recorded before and after NSPT for the two groups. Results: The mean CRP levels were reduced significantly in the test group before and after administration of Orthoboon and also there were statistically significant differences in the mean CRP levels at the end of 45 days between the test group and the control group. Conclusion: Administration of Orthoboon, i.e., GS, with a combination of Vitamin C and collagen was proved to be of a significant benefit in the test group than in the control group.
