  • a Species described were detected by the checkerboard hybridization procedure in >10 subjects. P values reflect significant species when levels were compared by the Wilcoxon rank sum test. NS, not significant.

  • b OA, significant species overabundant in caries-active subjects; UA, significant species underabundant in caries-active subjects.
