Reassessing the presence of Candida albicans in denture-related stomatitis.
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to reevaluate the link between Candida albicans and denture-related stomatitis according to a modified Newton classification, which reflects the classic types ofExpand

Candida albicans Expresses an Unusual Cytoplasmic Manganese-containing Superoxide Dismutase (SOD3 Gene Product) upon the Entry and during the Stationary Phase*
We report here that in addition to a cytoplasmic copper-zinc-containing superoxide dismutase (SOD) and a mitochondrial manganese-containing SOD, Candida albicans expresses a third SOD gene (SOD3).Expand

Differential pattern of infection and immune response during experimental oral candidiasis in BALB/c and DBA/2 (H-2d) mice.
We used an experimental model of oral candidiasis in the mouse to investigate the impact of the introduction of Candida albicans into a Candida-free system. We report that 2 strains of mice with theExpand

Production and characterization of an in vitro engineered human oral mucosa.
The role of epithelial cells in oral pathologies is poorly understood. Until now, most studies have used normal or transformed epithelial cell monolayers, a system that largely bypasses oral mucosalExpand

Proteolytic Activation of the Interleukin-1β Precursor by Candida albicans
ABSTRACT Chronic inflammation rather than invasion is characteristic of some forms of superficial candidiasis such as denture stomatitis. We hypothesized that Candida albicans may play a criticalExpand

Expression cloning of the Candida albicans CSA1 gene encoding a mycelial surface antigen by sorting of Saccharomyces cerevisiae transformants with monoclonal antibody‐coated magnetic beads
The mycelial surface antigen recognized by monoclonal antibody (mAb) 4E1 has previously been shown to be present predominantly in the terminal third of the hyphal structures in Candida albicans. WeExpand

Evidence for degradation of gastrointestinal mucin by Candida albicans secretory aspartyl proteinase.
A zone of extracellular digestion of the mucin layer around Candida albicans blastoconidia was observed by transmission electron microscopy in the jejunum of mice inoculated intragastrically (G. T.Expand

Effects of an oral health program on the occurrence of oral candidosis in a long-term care facility.
OBJECTIVES The aim was to evaluate the effectiveness of a preventive oral health program on the prevalence of oral candidosis in 237 frail or dependent residents in a long-term care facility. Half ofExpand

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

RFc alpha-bearing cells and IgA-mediated phagocytosis in the mouse oral mucosa.
IgA, the predominant immunoglobulin in the saliva, is the principal mediator of specific immunity in the oral cavity. Because IgA does not fix complement it is generally assumed that it isExpand
