Abstract

Cell surface protein antigen (PAc) and glucosyltransferases (GTF) of Streptococcus mutans are major colonization factors of the organism. We prepared bovine milk containing antibodies against a fusion of the saliva-binding alanine-rich region of PAc with the glucan-binding domain of GTF-I. This study examined the effect of the immune milk on the cariogenicity of S. mutans in a rat model. Concentrated immune milk was fed to rats once a day for 55 days. The group that received immune milk had significantly less caries development than controls.
