Abstract

and have been identified in atheromatous plaques of two patients suffering from atherosclerosis by PCR and fluorescence hybridization (FISH). The use of the FISH technique suggested that these periodontopathic micro-organisms might be metabolically active within the wall of arteries, under the atherosclerotic lesion.
