ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of new streptococcus detection system which used monoclonal antibody against Streptococcus mutans. 92 children aged between 2 and 8 were involved in this experiment and their saliva samples were collected for testing. Streptococcus mutans were measured by both monoclonal antibody-based detecting system (Saliva-checkTM Mutans) and dip slide detecting system(Dentocult®-SM). The results showed that Saliva-checkTM Mutans levels had a significant correlation with dfs rate of subjects and the two test kits, Saliva-checkTM Mutans and Dentocult®-SM were shown to have a good correlation although they were based on different mechanism.
