Comparison of three molecular typing methods in studies of transmission of Porphyromonas gingivalis.

Abstract

Porphyromonas gingivalis is associated strongly with severe periodontitis, but little information is available on possible transmission routes of this species. This study evaluated three DNA-based molecular typing methods for use in epidemiological surveys of P. gingivalis. In total, 32 isolates from eight married couples were investigated by: (i… (More)
