Figure 5

SDS (10%) was used as positive control to induce complete lysis of sheep erythrocytes. A value of 100% was assigned to the hemolysis by F. nucleatum in the absence of tea polyphenols. Results are expressed as the means ± SD of triplicate assays from three independent experiments. *Significantly different from the control (p < 0.01).
