Epithelial Interleukin-8 Responses to Oral Bacterial BiofilmsClinical and Vaccine Immunology (2011)
AbstractAn in vitro model of bacterial biofilms on rigid gas-permeable contact lenses (RGPLs) was developed to challenge oral epithelial cells. This novel model provided seminal data on oral biofilm-host cell interactions, and with selected bacteria, the biofilms were more effective than their planktonic counterparts at stimulating host cell responses.
