Genotypic characterization of Porphyromonas gingivalis isolated from Swedish patients with periodontitis and from periodontal abscesses.


INTRODUCTION A significant genetic polymorphism has been shown for Porphyromonas gingivalis isolates from different geographical areas. It is, however, possible that genetic similarities can be found among isolates obtained from a more specific population. The aim of the present study was to evaluate genetic heterogeneity among P. gingivalis isolates… (More)
