Experimental oral candidosis in the mouse: microbiologic and histologic aspects.
A model of oral candidosis was developed in order to investigate histologic and microbiologic aspects of this host-parasite interaction under controlled experimental conditions. Normal adult CD-1Expand

Mast cells in the murine oral mucosa are of the connective tissue-type.
The distribution, histochemistry, and functional properties of oral (cheeks, soft palate, and tongue) mast cells (MC) was compared to those of peritoneal, cutaneous, and intestinal MC. TheExpand

Acquired resistance and persistence of Candida albicans following oral candidiasis in the mouse: a model of the carrier state in humans.
In our experimental model of oral candidiasis in the CD1 mouse, the primary infection showed reproducible Candida overgrowth kinetics with a peak level on day 5 of the infection. After day 7, theExpand

The Minor Salivary Gland Network in Experimental Oral Candidosis
Candida albicans-is an opportunistic pathogen capable of infecting many mucous membranes in humans including the oral mucosa. In order to achieve successful colonization, C. albicans must overcomeExpand

In situ detection of Candida albicans using oral mucosal imprints
Abstract Candida albicans is a common commensal organism of the human mouth and can cause superficial infections when Candida overgrowth occurs. A sampling technique of the oral mucosa was devisedExpand

Distribution and characterisation of oral mucosal mast cells
Mast cells (MC) are normal components of healthy tissues (1,2). So far, two distinct subsets have been characterized mainly in the rat: mucosal MC, identified in the intestinal mucosa and in MCExpand
