A microbiological study was performed of the subgingival plaque on 2 sites in each of 20 adults originating from a rural area 40 km outside Nairobi, Kenya. The recovery rate of B. gingivalis was 70%, of B. intermedius 100% and of A. actinomycetemcomitans 40% of the subjects, and 50%, 90% and 28%, respectively, of the sites. The isolated strains exhibited similar biochemical characteristics and antibiotic susceptibility pattern as type strains of these species. The high recovery rate of these 3… CONTINUE READING
