Saliva functions to protect the oral cavity from pathogenic invasion by modulating the ability of microbes to colonize the oral surfaces or limiting their growth and/or viability. Although the role of salivary secretions in the modulation of the oral bacteria flora has received considerable attention, little is known concerning its role in viral pathogenesis. Accordingly, the purpose of this study was to assess the effect of salivary secretions on herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) replication… CONTINUE READING
