An in vitro study on the antifungal and antibiofilm activities of probiotic bacteria against Candida species isolated from orthodontic appliances and dental caries
Novel Research in Microbiology Journal
Candida species are opportunistic pathogens that may cause infections in predisposed persons. This work aimed to detect the antifungal and antibiofilm potentials of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus plantarum supernatants on Candida spp. About 60 % and 80 % of Candida isolates were recovered from saliva samples of 20 patients with fixed orthodontic appliances, and 20 children having dental caries, respectively. The antifungal susceptibility of Candida spp. was investigated using diskdoi:10.21608/nrmj.2021.164548 doaj:97786ff236ca42498a553edf37e98a55 fatcat:v5kacebrgvdktgjeslvwwtsomu
