Candida Spp In Oral Mucosa of Denture Wearers: A Pilot Study

Anuradha Sharma*, Deepa Anil Kumar*, Amit Kr. Tamrakar**, Saranjit Singh Bhasin**.

Abstract
Background: Oral mucosa of denture wearers is quite often subject to inflammation, a condition known as Denture Stomatitis, in which Candida spp. plays an important etiological role. Aim: To study the spectrum of Candida spp. in oral mucosa of denture wearers. Objective: To emphasis on evaluation of oral health of denture wearers, specially the elderly. Methodology: This prospective study was done in 2013 at a four year young, central university’s tertiary dental college. Institutional Ethical Approval was obtained. Persons attending Prosthodontics OPD with a history of wearing maxillary complete dentures for a minimum of 6 months were included in the study. Swabs from the mucosal surface underlying the denture were sent for microbiological identification. Results: Of the 09 subjects, 07 were males and 02 females in the age group of 40 yrs to 80 yrs. C. albicans, C. krusei and C. glabrata were isolated, with a mixed growth of C. albicans and C. krusei seen in one subject. Conclusion: As denture stomatitis is frequently asymptomatic, periodic monitoring, for the presence of Candida species should be done. Investigation into factors causing the initial attachment of Candida spp. should be evaluated along with motivation of the aged for regular dental visits. [Anuradha S NJIRM 2017; 8(6):71-74]

Key words: Candida albicans, Candida krusei, Candida glabrata, Denture Stomatitis, Elderly.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
