  1. 1. 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; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lactobacillus; normal flora; probiotics; urogenital infections; Candida; Clinical bacteriology; Klinisk bakteriologi;

    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.

  2. 2. Effect of Probiotics on Caries-related Variables

    Author : Sahal Alforaidi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; Bacterial interference; Caries; Caries prevention; Dental biofilm; Dental plaque; Lactobacilli; Lactobacillus reuteri; Streptococcus mutans; Plaque acidogenicity; Probiotics; qPCR; Saliva; Virulence;

    Abstract : In relation to the caries disease, the aims of this thesis were to investigate the effect of probiotic drops on different caries-related variables in vivo (Papers I & III), on interference capability and genetic response to different metabolites in vitro (II) and systematically to review the best mode and dose of administration based on the examined oral outcomes (IV). The effects on colonisation and cariogenic bacteria were studied in plaque and saliva via plating and qPCR-analyses in teenagers and orthodontic patients after short-term exposure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Probiotics and berry-associated polyphenols: catabolism and antioxidative effects

    Author : Maja Jakesevic; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []

    Abstract : Oxidative stress can cause damage to DNA, proteins and lipids and is associated with inflammation and various human diseases as cancer, atherosclerosis, and autoimmune diseases. Polyphenol-rich diet, such as fruits and berries, may act as antioxidants and prevent oxidative stress and, thereby, associated diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Using Probiotics in Intensive Care with Special Reference to Lactobacillus plantarum 299 and 299v

    Author : Bengt Klarin; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []

    Abstract : Probiotics are Live microorganisms that confer a health benefit on the host. The composition of the microflora in the gastrointestinal tract is rather constant in healthy subjects, but is easily disturbed by severe illness and the use of antibiotics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of Probiotics and Plant Components on Murine Experimental Colitis and Acute Liver Failure

    Author : Nadia Osman; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; bacteriology; virology; Rose hip; Microbiology; Probiotics; Prebiotics; Liver injury; Blueberry; Gastro-enterology; Colitis; Gastroenterologi; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : Acute liver failure is accompanied by a high rate of bacterial septic complications. High portal level of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) can lead to a pronounced secretion by Kupffer cells of pro-inflammatory mediators which have been shown to be early and important mediators of liver injury.
