Candida albicans-is an opportunistic pathogen capable of infecting many mucous membranes in humans including the oral mucosa. In order to achieve successful colonization, C. albicans must overcome both non-specific and specific defense mechanisms present in the saliva and at mucosal surfaces. Since the incidence of local infection and systemic dissemination is lower than expected from the ubiquity of the microorganism in the oral flora, immuno-surveillance mechanisms can therefore be expected… Expand
