Researchers Discover Molecule That Kills Cavity Causing Mouth Bacteria

from Medical Xpress

Yale researcher Jose Cordova and Erich Astudillo from the University of Chile (and Founder of Top Tech Innovations SpA) have, after working together, discovered a new molecule that kills the bacteria Streptococcus Mutans; long known to be responsible for breaking down sugars in food in the mouth and leaving behind lactic acid which corrodes tooth enamel leading to decay. The new molecule they call Keep 32 (after the 32 teeth in the average human mouth) has been found to kill the bacteria on contact. The two have applied for a patent on their discovery and have also begun a marketing strategy aimed at both oral care products and makers of food. They say either product if left in the mouth for just 60 seconds will eliminate all the harmful bacteria in the mouth and keep them at bay for several hours. more
