UNLABELLED Biofilms contribute to the pathogenesis of oral candidiasis, some 15% of which may be due to dual Candida species. Despite extensive studies on monospecies biofilms (MSB) on denture acrylic surfaces, few have investigated the characteristics of dual species Candida biofilms (DSB). OBJECTIVES To examine interactions of DSB of Candida albicans and Candida krusei on denture acrylic surfaces. METHODS Two isolates each of C. albicans (Ca) and C. krusei (Ck), with high (Ca(h), Ck(h… CONTINUE READING
