  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. Lactobacilli in the normal microbiota and probiotic effects of Lactobacillus plantarum

    Author : Elisabeth Lönnermark; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    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

    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

  4. 4. 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

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