Actinomyces viscosus, A. naselundii, Streptococcus mutans serotype "c" and S. mutans serotype "d/g" were identified in human carious dentin using histological and immunofluorescent techniques. A. viscosus was most frequently found in association with patient's immunoglobulins and complement, followed by S. mutans serotype "d/g", S. mutans serotype "c", and(More)
A review of publications relating to the allergies of the dental pulp is presented. The pulp--especially when inflamed--contains antigens, lymphocytes, plasmocytes, IgG, IgM, IgA, and IgE antibodies, mast cells, histamine, and possibly C3. However, no antibody-mediated allergy (hypersensitivity) of the pulp has yet been demonstrated. On the other hand, two(More)
Streptococcus mutans ATCC-27607 produces exopolysaccharides that adhere to glass. In the normal geomagnetic field about 50% more polysaccharide adhere preferentially to glass surfaces facing North as compared to South facing surfaces. Reversal of the direction of the magnetic field by 180 degrees produces a similar reversal in the direction of the(More)
The penetration and complement fixation of sIgA, IgM and IgG were studied in advanced human dental caries with double-staining immunofluorescence technique. Immunoglobulins were found in dental plaque and in the superficial layers of the lesions which were exposed to saliva. sIgA was the most frequent, followed by IgG and IgM. IgG had the greatest capacity(More)
