  • Abstract Candida albicans is a common commensal organism of the human mouth and can cause superficial infections when Candida overgrowth occurs. A sampling technique of the oral mucosa was devised which permits the in situ detection of C. albicans . Technical optimization was carried out using an in vitro approach with infected keratinocyte monolayers, and an experimental model of oral candidosis. The oral population of Candida was then assessed in normal subjects and individuals at risk. Small… CONTINUE READING
