Is Sinusitis Innocent?--Unilateral Subdural Empyema in an Immunocompetent Child.
Subdural empyema related to Streptococcus constellatus is extremely rare in an immunocompetent child, and also there is no reported case along with Staphylococcus lugdunensis infection. Although Streptococcus constellatus has been determined as a co-

Reducing the bioactivity of Tannerella forsythia lipopolysaccharide by Porphyromonas gingivalis.
Tannerella forsythia is considered a pathogen of periodontitis and forms a biofilm with multi-species bacteria in oral cavity. Lipopolysaccharide is a powerful immunostimulator and induces inflammation and shock. The purpose of this study was to inve
