Developed by: Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Galicia Sur


A new species of Streptococcus has been isolated from healthy mouths of patients, CECT 9174, which has demonstrated significant bactericidal activity. CECT 9174, or bioactive compounds derived from the strain, within the probiotics and/or prebiotics composition or as part of different pharmaceutical compositions, could be used in the treatment of infections in the oral cavity, such as caries and periodontal disease.
