Antibacterial synergistic effect of chlorhexidine and hydrogen peroxide against Streptococcus sobrinus, Streptococcus faecalis and Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
It is suggested that CHX and HP can be of use in controlling the dental plaque in the oral cavity through alteration of the bacterial cell-surface by CHX thereby allowing for an increased amount of HP to penetrate and to react with the intercellular organelles of the bacteria.
Mechanism of Visible Light Phototoxicity on Porphyromonas gingivalis and Fusobacterium nucleatum
TLDR
The results support the assumption that the phototoxic effect of blue light on the periopathogenic bacteria is oxygen dependent and that hydroxyl radicals play an important role in this process.
The role of bacteriolysis in the pathophysiology of inflammation, infection and post‐infectious sequelae

TLDR
Within phagocytic cells in inflammatory sites, bacteriolysis tends to be strongly inhibited presumably due to the inactivation by oxidants and proteinases of the bacterial muramidases, which might results in a long persistence of non‐biodegradable cell‐wall components causing granulomatous inflammation.
Is streptolysin S of group A streptococci a virulence factor?

  • 1 March 1999
TLDR
It is proposed that only cocktails of anti‐inflammatory agents including distinct inhibitors of SLS (phospholipids), gamma globulin, inhibitors of reactive oxygen species, proteinases, cationic proteins cytokines etc., will be effective in inhibiting the multiple synergistic interactions which lead to fasciitis, myositis and the flesh‐eating syndromes.
Thiazolidinedione-8 Alters Symbiotic Relationship in C. albicans-S. mutans Dual Species Biofilm
TLDR
It is concluded that S-8 disturbs symbiotic balance between C. albicans and S. mutans in dual species biofilm by changing symbiotic relationship between these species by a complex mechanism.
Inhibition of wall autolysis of staphylococci by sodium polyanethole sulfonate “liquoid”
TLDR
Liquoid induced a suppression of the activity of different autolytic wall systems of normally growing staphylococci, i.e., autolysins which participate in cross wall separation as well as autolySins which are responsible for cell wall turnover.
