  • Actinomyces HOT-169 were significantly reduced following use of maltitol chewing gum in patients. ”  [2017]
  • “The numbers of Bifidobacterium, Actinomyces, and Enterobacteriaceae species, as well as S-forms of E. coli were significantly increased in the Salem[lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet]-group, as compared to the school-children.” [1983]



  •  ‘”In group EP-HN019 (with Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis ), there were greater proportions of Actinomyces and Streptococcus-like species and lower proportions of Veillonella parvula, Capnocytophaga sputigena, Eikenella corrodens, and Prevotella intermedia-like species than group EP. ” [2017]
  • Antimicrobial Effect of Lactobacillus reuteri on Cariogenic Bacteria Streptococcus gordonii, Streptococcus mutans, and Periodontal Diseases Actinomyces naeslundii and Tannerella forsythia [2015].
  • “the count of cecal Actinomyces in birds treated with [B. subtilis and L. acidophilus ] probiotics was significantly lower compared with the control group. ” [2014]
  • “Lactobacillus gasseri. All the tested strains inhibited S. mutans and A. viscosus; only one did not inhibited F. nucleatum and 52 strains inhibited slightly the growth of P. gingivalis. ” [2013]
  • “Only a few strains inhibited Actinomyces pyogenes 96/393,… Most of the strains were identified as Lactobacillus fermentum, a few as Lactobacillus gasseri and one as Lactobacillus rhamnosus.” [2006]
  • “Periodontal dressing consisting of collagen and Lactobacillus casei 37 cell suspension (cell concentration 108 cells/ml) was created and used in combined treatment of patients with chronic generalized parodontitis. Efficacy of the developed isolation was explained by a considerable decrease of the number and frequency of isolation of aggressive microbial representatives (pigment synthesizing Bacteroids, Actinomycesand Str. intermedius) in periodontal pockets and also Fungus (Candida albicans). This periodontal dressing provided remission up to 10-12 months.” [2004]
  • Sugar increases vs whole grains and oats decreases [1992]
