J Oral Microbiol. 2015 Apr 7;7:27429. doi: 10.3402/jom.v7.27429. eCollection 2015.

Abstract

Bacterial profiles of saliva in subjects with periodontitis and dental caries have been demonstrated to differ from that of oral health. The aim of this comparative analysis of existing data generated by the Human Oral Microbe Identification Microarray (HOMIM) from 293 stimulated saliva samples was to compare bacterial profiles of saliva in subjects with periodontitis and dental caries.

Keywords: HOMIM; bacteria; dental caries; periodontitis; saliva.
