In this study, photodynamic inactivation (PDI) was used to inhibit in vitro growth and adhesion of different Candida isolates to buccal epithelial cells (BEC). Experimental conditions were optimized and 25muM toluidine blue O (TBO) and 15min of irradiation time by light emitting diode (LED) (energy density of 180J/cm(2)) were selected due to higher reductions in cellular viability obtained after treatment. Reduction media of Log(10) 3.41 in viable cellular growth and media of 55% in the… CONTINUE READING
