Adhesion of H. pylori strains to human dental pulp fibroblast cells. a Adhesion rates were calculated based on the ratio of recovered to infected strains with an multiplicity of infection of 10. Significant differences were determined using Bonferroni’s method after ANOVA (*P < 0.05). b Representative confocal scanning laser microscopic images of H. pylori strain 26,695 showing adhesion to human dental fibroblast cells following dual labeling. Nuclei are stained blue, bacterial cells adhering to HDPFs are stained red (arrows), and actin filaments are stained green
