The authors studied the effect miocamycin has on the adherence and coaggregation of pathogenic bacteria in periodontopathy. The data obtained by optic microscopy, after treatment of the strains with doses of miocamycin equal to 1/4 and 1/8 of the MIC after 3 and 6 hours, shows the interference effect on the coaggregation and adhesivity of the antibiotic. These results have been confirmed by the observations obtained by scanning electron microscope (SEM).
