ABSTRACT: Introduction: Oral-derived bacteremia may occur after several dental procedures
but also after routine daily activities. Some conditions of the oral cavity may favor
episodes of bacteremia. This would be the case of patients with diabetes mellitus
and periodontitis, which exhibit exacerbated gingival inflammation and may be
more prone to developing oral-derived bacteremia.
Objective: To compare the effectiveness of an independent culture method
(quantitative real-time PCR- qCR) and the most commonly used method (BacTALERT
3D®) for the diagnosis of bacteremia.
Material and methods: Blood samples were drawn from diabetes mellitus type II
subjects with chronic periodontitis before and after apple chewing. Samples were
processed by an automated blood culture system (BacT-ALERT 3D®) monitored
for 15 days with suitable subculture of positive cultures. In parallel, whole DNA
from blood samples was purified using a commercial kit and screened by qPCR
using a universal primer set of16S rDNA for bacteria detection.
Results: Blood cultures taken before apple chewing were shown to be negative by
the two diagnostic methods. After chewing, two samples (11%) showed bacterial
growth by BacT-ALERT 3D® whereas qPCR did not detect the presence of
bacteria in any sample.
Conclusions: qPCR did not show higher effectiveness than the BacT-ALERT 3D®
in the detection of bacteremia of oral origin.
Keywords: Bacteremia, real-time polymerase chain reaction, periodontitis,
