Anti-adherence potential of immunoglobulin Y aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans against aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans adhesion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans is the main cause of aggressive periodontitis. Immunoglobulin Y (Ig Y) is the main antibody in poultry, reptiles, lungfish and can be found in chicken egg yolk. IgY has been proven effective to prevent against several pathogens that harm towards animals and humans. This study purpose is to investigate that Ig YA. actinomycetemcomitans have an anti-adherence potential against A. actinomycetemcomitans adherence on epithelial cell as an alternative prevention of periodontitis. The sample group was divided into 8 groups, 1 control group and 7 treatment groups. The control group consisted of a control group of A. actinomycetemcomitans. The number of bacteria attached to 100 enterocyte cells was calculated to determine the adhesion index. IgY in egg yolk can significantly reduce the adhesion index of A. actinomycetemcomitans bacteria in each concentration group. IgY A. actinomycetemcomitans have an anti-adherence potential against A. actinomycetemcomitans adherence in epithelial cell.
