Figure 2: Survival curve of Galleria mellonella after infection with different concentrations of periodontopathogens; (a) Porphyromonas gingivalis. There was a statistical difference between the concentrations of 107and 108cells/mL (P<0.0001) and 107and 109cells/mL (P<0.0001); (b) Fusobacterium nucleatum. There was a statistical difference between the concentrations of 107and 108cells/mL (P=0.0022), and 107and 109cells/mL (P=0.0003); (c) Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans. There was a statistical difference between the concentrations of 107and 109cells/mL (P=0.0023), and 108and 109cells/mL (P=0.0362). Same letters over the lines indicate the absence of statistical difference after Log-Rank test (Mantel Cox)
