OBJECTIVE In order to examine if Tannerella forsythia stimulates the growth of Porphyromonas gingivalis, an in vitro study was performed. BACKGROUND P. gingivalis and T. forsythia are often isolated simultaneously from active periodontitis sites, indicating that these bacteria somewhat interact in the periodontal environment. We reported previously that mixed infection of P. gingivalis and T. forsythia synergistically induced lesion formation in a murine abscess model, and gingipains of P… CONTINUE READING
