Table 2 Means and SDs of the biofilm mass (mg) formed on silicone pads and acrylic resin for Candida species studied and p-value obtained for each Candida specie compared to C. albicans (Tukey test, P < 0.05)

From: Oral Candida albicans isolates from HIV-positive individuals have similar in vitro biofilm-forming ability and pathogenicity as invasive Candida isolates
