  1. 1. Lactobacillus reuteri in health and disease

    University dissertation from Malmö : Malmö University. Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Gabriela Sinkiewicz; Malmö University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; breast milk; lactobacilli; Lactobacillus reuteri; probiotics; Bifidobacteria; clostridium; faeces; Gingivitis; oral health;

    Abstract : People have exploited fermentation by lactobacilli for centuries as a means of preparing and preserving foods. Several different bacterial species are today used as probiotic bacteria in different products both for human and animal applications. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prebiotic Oligosaccharides from Xylan: Heat Pretreatment, Xylanase Hydrolysis, Utilization by Potential Probiotics and Evaluation in a Mouse Study

    University dissertation from Chemistry Division of Biotechnology

    Author : Peter Falck; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; arabinoxylan; xylooligosaccharides; arabinoxylooligosaccharides; Bifidobacterium; Lactobacillus;

    Abstract : Modulation of the gut microbiota with prebiotic oligosaccharides from partially hydrolyzed xylans can be part of the solution for reducing the occurrence of many health problems such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that selectively stimulate health beneficial bacteria in the colon, restoring homeostasis to the gut environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact of Bifidobacterium longum and Lactobacillus acidophilus on the intestinal microflora and bioavailability of some food mutagens

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Immunology, Microbiology, Pathology and Infectious Diseases

    Author : Kerstin Orrhage; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal microflora is a complex ecological system, normally characterised by a flexible equilibrium. The most important role of the microflora, from the point of view of the host, is probably to act in colonisation resistance against exogenous, potentially pathogenic, microorganisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ecological impact of antibiotic treatment on human normal microflora

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Mamun-Ur Rashid; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]

    Abstract : The skin and the mucosal surfaces of humans are colonized with microorganisms which are often referred as the normal microflora. There is a biological balance between the human host and the normal microflora in health. The extensive use of antibiotics in both humans and animals has caused the development of many resistant bacteria. READ MORE

  5. 5. Feeding Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. paracasei strain F19 to infants during weaning effects on adaptive immunity and gut microbial function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Abstract : Introduction: Gut microbial composition has been associated with immune-mediated diseases. Breastfeeding yields a microbiota rich in bifidobacteria and promotes colonization by lactobacilli. Bifidobacteria and lactobacilli are considered health-promoting and are used as probiotics, i.e. READ MORE
