Leukocidal activity of staphylococci isolated from human periodontal lesions.

Abstract

Staphylococci isolated from subgingival samples of patients with advanced periodontitis were tested for leukocidal activity. Intact organisms, bacterial sonicates or bacterial culture supernatants were incubated with human neutrophils that had been prelabeled with 51chromium. The majority of Staphylococcus aureus periodontal isolates provoked dose-dependent… (More)
