The 10 species identified by the ParoCheck10[R] microarray detection system were as follows: The red complex: Porphyromonasgingivalis, Tannerella forsythia and Treponema denticola; the orange complex: Campylobacter rectus, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Parvimonas micra and Prevotella intermedia
; the green complex: Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans and Eikenella corrodens; the blue complex: Actinomyces viscosus (12).
A Chinese case of prevotella intermedia
and streptococcus constellatus intracranial mixed infection.
For Prevotella genus the main species detected were Prevotella tannarae (3.2%), Prevotella intermedia
(2.3%), and Prevotella oris (2.1%) of all sequences.
The microbiological parameters Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa), Fusobacterium nucleatum (Fn), Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) and Prevotella intermedia
(Pi) were recorded.
One notable exception was Prevotella intermedia
, which was enriched in the control group.

strain isolated from infected root canal reveals features related to pathogenicity and adaptation," BMC Genomics, vol.
The study supports selective destruction of Pg and Prevotella intermedia
(Pi) at depths of 3-4mm using a 1064nm pulsedNd:YAG laser.
Anaerobic gram-negative bacteria, including Prevotella intermedia
Interestingly, Candida albicans, one of the resident fungi in the oral cavity, and Porphyromonas gingivalis and Prevotella intermedia
, two of the major periodontopathogenic microorganisms, were also isolated with relatively high frequency [11-13, 16-19].
