    Keywords : lactobacillus; oral microbiota; gut microbiota; infants; adults; secretory IgA; IgA-deficiency; adherence; Lactobacillus plantarum; probiotics; antibiotics; salmonellosis; diarrhoea;

    Abstract : Lactobacilli colonise most adult individuals and are also frequently used as probiotics, i.e. bacteria which possibly have health promoting effects when ingested. In this thesis, the intestinal Lactobacillus microbiota was studied in longitudinally followed infants. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lactobacillus characterization and effects on oral biofilm composition

    Author : Nelly Romani Vestman; Ingegerd Johansson; Jukka Meurman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lactobacillus; L. gasseri; probiotic traits; oral biofilm; breastfeeding; oral microbiota; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : The human body is home for millions of bacteria. The largest microbial community is located in the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract, including the oral cavity with >700 identified taxa. Lactobacillus, which is normal inhabitant of the GI tract, contributes to health by possible biofilm and immune modulation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Urogenital probiotics : potential role of Lactobacillus in the prevention of urogenital infections in women

    Author : Daniel Rönnqvist; Eva Essum AB Grahn Håkansson; Ulla SCA Hygiene Care Forsgren-Brusk; Anders Sjöstedt; Patricia Conway; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : The human vaginal ecosystem is dominated by Lactobacillus species. An altered vaginal flora can result in symptomatic conditions such as bacterial vaginosis and vulvo-vaginal candidiasis, and urogenital colonisation by uropathogenic bacteria can cause urinary tract infection.

  4. 4. Lactobacillus reuteri in health and disease

    Author : Gabriela Sinkiewicz; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. Antibiotic resistance in Lactobacillus reuteri and Lactobacillus plantarum

    Author : Maria Egervärn; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) may act as reservoirs of antibiotic resistance genes that can be transferred via the food chain or within the gastrointestinal tract to pathogenic bacteria. This thesis provides data required for assessing the potential risk of using antibiotic resistant strains of the LAB species Lactobacillus reuteri and Lactobacillus plantarum as food processing aids or probiotics.
