Growth Inhibition of Streptococcus mutans with Low Xylitol Concentrations


No studies on the concentration dependency of the inhibition of Streptococcus mutans with xylitol are available. We studied xylitol-induced growth inhibition of two type strains, S. mutans NCTC 10449 and Ingbritt, and three clinical isolates of S. mutans. The strains were grown in Brain Hearth Infusion Medium in the presence of 0.001% (0.066 mM), 0.005% (0… (More)
