Researchers discover cellular messengers communicate with bacteria in the mouth
from University of California, Los Angeles via Medical Xpress
A new University of California, Los Angeles-led study provides clear evidence that cellular messengers in saliva may be able to regulate the growth of oral bacteria responsible for diseases, such as periodontitis and meningitis. The study's findings, which suggest that a body's cellular messengers play an important role in managing the amount of good and bad bacteria in the mouth, are published online and will appear in the May issue of the Journal for Dental Research.
