    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

  2. 2. Characterization of the Intestinal Microbiota by DNA-Based Methods

    Author : Mei Wang; Livsmedelsteknik; []

    Abstract : The intestinal flora and the bacteria found in the extraintestinal sites were studied in liver injury rats, with or without Lactobacillus plantarum 299v pre-treatment. The dominating intestinal flora and translocating bacteria were typed by RAPD and identified by 16S rDNA sequencing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nutritional and Microbiological Evaluation of Fermented Cereal Weaning Foods

    Author : Wilbald S.M. Lorri; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Protein energy malnutrition (PEM) is the most serious nutritional problem affecting pre-school children in developing countries. The low energy and nutrient density of the diet and the presence of anti-nutritional factors contribute to this condition, as do the low frequency of feeding and transmission of diarrhoea-causing pathogens via the food.
