The components in the formulation of artificial saliva II provided greater adherence of Candida albicans biofilms when compared to artificial saliva I, which contained carboxymethylcellulose
Colonies of cellulose-degrading bacteria are identified by the appearance of a clear zone around the colony that results from digestion of the carboxymethylcellulose
by the bacteria.

5 mL of overlay medium that contained 3% medium viscosity carboxymethylcellulose
prepared in MEM without phenol red with 10% heatinactivated fetal bovine serum, 1% glutamine (2 mmol/L), 100 U penicillin, and 100 [micro]g/mL streptomycin.
Designation D1439: Standard Test Methods for Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose
Several of the items contain carboxymethylcellulose
(CMC), a compound that has been shown to bind to human corneal epithelial cells.
They consist of a variety of ingredients including gelatin, pectin, adhesives, polymers, carboxymethylcellulose
, and gelling agents.
One such method involves the use of a bioabsorbable adhesion barrier composed of sodium hyaluronate and carboxymethylcellulose
(Seprafilm, Genzyme Corp, Cambridge, MA).
