Inhibition of vibrio anguillarum by Pseudomonas fluorescens AH2, a possible probiotic treatment of fish. (1/1690)

To study the possible use of probiotics in fish farming, we evaluated the in vitro and in vivo antagonism of antibacterial strain Pseudomonas fluorescens strain AH2 against the fish-pathogenic bacterium Vibrio anguillarum. As iron is important in virulence and bacterial interactions, the effect of P. fluorescens AH2 was studied under iron-rich and iron-limited conditions. Sterile-filtered culture supernatants from iron-limited P. fluorescens AH2 inhibited the growth of V. anguillarum, whereas sterile-filtered supernatants from iron-replete cultures of P. fluorescens AH2 did not. P. fluorescens AH2 inhibited the growth of V. anguillarum during coculture, independently of the iron concentration, when the initial count of the antagonist was 100 to 1, 000 times greater that of the fish pathogen. These in vitro results were successfully repeated in vivo. A probiotic effect in vivo was tested by exposing rainbow trout (Oncorynchus mykiss Walbaum) to P. fluorescens AH2 at a density of 10(5) CFU/ml for 5 days before a challenge with V. anguillarum at 10(4) to 10(5) CFU/ml for 1 h. Some fish were also exposed to P. fluorescens AH2 at 10(7) CFU/ml during the 1-h infection. The combined probiotic treatment resulted in a 46% reduction of calculated accumulated mortality; accumulated mortality was 25% after 7 days at 12 degrees C in the probiotic-treated fish, whereas mortality was 47% in fish not treated with the probiont.  (+info)

Probiotics inhibit enteropathogenic E. coli adherence in vitro by inducing intestinal mucin gene expression. (2/1690)

Probiotic agents, live microorganisms with beneficial effects for the host, may offer an alternative to conventional antimicrobials in the treatment and prevention of enteric infections. The probiotic agents Lactobacillus plantarum 299v and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG quantitatively inhibited the adherence of an attaching and effacing pathogenic Escherichia coli to HT-29 intestinal epithelial cells but did not inhibit adherence to nonintestinal HEp-2 cells. HT-29 cells were grown under conditions that induced high levels of either MUC2 or MUC3 mRNA, but HEp-2 cells expressed only minimal levels of MUC2 and no MUC3 mRNA. Media enriched for MUC2 and MUC3 mucin were added exogenously to binding assays and were shown to be capable of inhibiting enteropathogen adherence to HEp-2 cells. Incubation of L. plantarum 299v with HT-29 cells increased MUC2 and MUC3 mRNA expression levels. From these in vitro studies, we propose the hypothesis that the ability of probiotic agents to inhibit adherence of attaching and effacing organisms to intestinal epithelial cells is mediated through their ability to increase expression of MUC2 and MUC3 intestinal mucins.  (+info)

Probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics: approaches for modulating the microbial ecology of the gut. (3/1690)

The microbiota of the human large intestine influences health and well-being. Whereas it has long been accepted that gut bacteria play a role in host pathogenesis, current opinion is that certain microflora components can have beneficial effects on gastroenteritis resistance, blood lipids, antitumor properties, lactose tolerance, and gastrointestinal immunity. It is postulated that in the infant gut an elevated bifidobacterial count may be associated with health advantages that breast-fed infants may have over formula-fed infants. Whereas beneficial aspects of the human gut flora still need definitive confirmation and mechanistic explanations, there is now interest in modulating the composition of gut flora such that a potentially more remedial community exists. This may be achieved through the targeted use of dietary supplementation. This article provides an overview of how probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics may contribute toward nutritional modulation of the gut microecology, with emphasis on the neonatal intestine where appropriate. The use of modern molecular methods, as an essential step forward for assessing the validity and accuracy of the modulatory approach, is also discussed.  (+info)

Dietary modulation of the human gut microflora using the prebiotics oligofructose and inulin. (4/1690)

Although largely unproven in humans, better resistance to pathogens, reduction in blood lipids, antitumor properties, hormonal regulation and immune stimulation may all be possible through gut microflora manipulation. One approach advocates the oral intake of live microorganisms (probiotics). Although the probiotic approach has been extensively used and advocated, survivability/viability after ingestion is difficult to guarantee and almost impossible to prove. The prebiotic concept dictates that non viable dietary components fortify certain components of the intestinal flora (e.g., bifidobacteria, lactobacilli). This concept has the advantage that survival of the ingested ingredient through the upper gastrointestinal tract is not a prerequisite because it is indigenous bacterial genera that are targeted. The feeding of oligofructose and inulin to human volunteers alters the gut flora composition in favor of bifidobacteria, a purportedly beneficial genus. Future human studies that exploit the use of modern molecular-based detection methods for bacteria will determine the efficacy of prebiotics. It may be possible to address prophylactically certain gastrointestinal complaints through the selective targeting of gut bacteria.  (+info)

Possible mechanisms by which pro- and prebiotics influence colon carcinogenesis and tumor growth. (5/1690)

Oligofructose and inulin, selective fermentable chicory fructans, have been shown to stimulate the growth of bifidobacteria, which are regarded as beneficial strains in the colon. Studies were designed to evaluate inulin (Raftiline) and oligofructose (Raftilose) for their potential inhibitory properties against the development of colonic aberrant crypt foci (ACF) in rats. ACF are putative preneoplastic lesions from which adenomas and carcinomas may develop in the colon. The results of this study indicate that dietary administration of oligofructose and inulin inhibits the development of ACF in the colon, suggesting the potential colon tumor inhibitory properties of chicory fructans. The degree of ACF inhibition was more pronounced in animals given inulin than in those fed oligofructose. Because these prebiotics selectively stimulate the growth of bifidobacteria, ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activities, ras-p21 ontoprotein expressions and tumor inhibitory activity of lyophilized cultures of Bifidobacterium longum against chemically induced colon and mammary carcinogenesis and against colonic tumor cell proliferation were examined. Dietary administration of lyophilized cultures of B. longum strongly suppressed colon and mammary tumor development and tumor burden. Inhibition of colon carcinogenesis was associated with a decrease in colonic mucosal cell proliferation and activities of colonic mucosal and tumor ornithine decarboxylase and ras-p21. Human clinical trials are likely to broaden our insight into the importance of the pre- and probiotics in health and disease.  (+info)

The effect of synbiotics on colon carcinogenesis in rats. (6/1690)

Evidence indicates that consumption of probiotic microorganisms such as bifidobacteria reduces the risk of colon cancer in animal models. Feeding certain fructans such as oligofructose and inulin, which are thought to selectively increase the growth of intestinal bifidobacteria (i.e., a prebiotic effect), also has been shown to reduce colon cancer risk. The objective of our study was twofold, i. e., to determine whether the combination of bifidobacteria and oligofructose would have an additive effect (i.e., synbiotic) in reducing colon cancer risk in rats, and to determine whether other oligosaccharides would also be effective as part of a synbiotic combination. The development of colonic preneoplastic lesions (aberrant crypts) was used as an index of colon cancer risk. In one series of experiments, rats were given the carcinogen 1, 2-dimethylhydrazine (DMH) and administered one of the following treatments: skim milk (control), bifidobacteria (bifido), oligofructose (OF) or bifido + OF. Neither bifido nor OF alone significantly reduced aberrant crypt number. Bifido + OF reduced aberrant crypt number in five of six experiments, although the reduction was significant in only one. However, a paired comparison of the six experiments indicated a significant overall reduction in aberrant crypts by bifido + OF (P = 0.039). Soybean oligosaccharide (SBO) and wheat bran oligosaccharide (WBO) were also fed in combination with bifidobacteria. In two other experiments, SBO did not alter the number of aberrant crypts compared with the control, whereas WBO reduced aberrant crypt number in one experiment but not in another. Of OF, SBO and WBO, only SBO reduced the colonic mucosa proliferation compared with the control. These results suggest that the combination of bifidobacteria and oligofructose reduces colon cancer risk in carcinogen-treated rats, but the effect of other oligosaccharides is uncertain.  (+info)

Impact on the composition of the faecal flora by a new probiotic preparation: preliminary data on maintenance treatment of patients with ulcerative colitis. (7/1690)

BACKGROUND: Although 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) oral compounds are the standard maintenance treatment for ulcerative colitis in remission, some patients cannot use them because of side-effects. Clinical and experimental observations have suggested the potential role of probiotics in inflammatory bowel disease therapy. AIM: To evaluate the effects on intestinal microflora and the clinical efficacy of a new probiotic preparation in patients with ulcerative colitis in remission. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty patients with ulcerative colitis, intolerant or allergic to 5-ASA, have been treated with a new probiotic preparation (VSL#3, CSL, Milan, Italy) containing 5x10(11) cells/g of 3 strains of bifidobacteria, 4 strains of lactobacilli and 1 strain of Streptococcus salivarius ssp. thermophilus. Two doses of 3 g were administered o.d. for 12 months. Faecal samples for stool culture were obtained from the patients at the beginning of the trial and after 10, 20, 40, 60, 75, 90 days, 12 months and at 15 days after the end of the treatment. The following bacterial groups have been evaluated in the faeces: total aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, enterococci, Streptococcus thermophilus, lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, Bacteroides, clostridia, coliforms. Patients were assessed clinically every two months, and assessed endoscopically at 6 and 12 months or in relapse. RESULTS: Faecal concentrations of Streptococcus salivarius ssp. thermophilus, lactobacilli and bifidobacteria increased significantly in all patients, compared to their basal level, from the 20th day of treatment (P<0.05) and remained stable throughout the study. Concentrations of Bacteroides, clostridia, coliforms, total aerobic and anaerobic bacteria did not change significantly during treatment (P = N.S.). Fifteen of 20 treated patients remained in remission during the study, one patient was lost to follow up, while the remaining relapsed. No significant side-effects have been reported. CONCLUSIONS: These results show that this probiotic preparation is able to colonize the intestine, and suggest that it may be useful in maintaining the remission in ulcerative colitis patients intolerant or allergic to 5-ASA. Controlled trials are warranted to confirm these preliminary results.  (+info)

Are you suffering from allergies such as eczema? If yes, the severity of these allergies can be reduced by taking probiotic supplements. Research has it that children and infants that were affected by eczema made good health gains when fed with milk containing probiotic supplements as against children that were fed with milk that contained no form of probiotic supplements. Furthermore, studies have revealed that women that took lots of probiotic supplements when they were pregnant gave birth to children with a risk of developing eczema which was 83% lower than the risk of children given birth to by women that do not take probiotic supplements during pregnancy.. Certain probiotic supplements have the ability to lower inflammatory responses in individuals that are allergic to dairy or milk.. While there are certain results that suggest that probiotic supplements can help with lots of allergies, the proofs are still not convincing enough and a lot of work still has to be carried out in this field. ...

A multispecies Lactobacillus- and Bifidobacterium-containing probiotic mixture significantly reduced the adverse metabolic and inflammatory effects of a 14-week high-fat diet in wild-type C57/BL6J mice gavaged 5 days a week with the probiotic mixture or vehicle. Recent evidence indicates that the gut microbiome may play a decisive role in the onset of obesity and associated chronic metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, by modulating nutrient absorption and factors conducive to development of a persistent low-grade inflammatory state. By modifying the gut microbiome, probiotics might constitute an effective dietary strategy for managing these metabolic disorders. The tested probiotic mixture significantly attenuated the increase in body weight, serum glucose concentration and insulin resistance induced by the high-fat diet. Furthermore, it significantly reduced the up-regulation of expression of several genes encoding pro-inflammatory adipokines and leukotriene pathway enzymes (CCL-2, IL-6 ...
Objective: To define the cellular basis for immune enhancement by a probiotic lactic acid bacteria strain ( Bifidobacterium lactis HN019); and to determine whether immune enhancement can be optimized by delivery in oligosaccharide-enriched low-fat milk. Design: A double- blind, three- stage before-and-after intervention trial. Setting: Taipei Medical College Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan. Subjects: Fifty healthy Taiwanese citizens (age range 41-81; median 60) randomly allocated to two groups. Interventions: In stage 1 (run-in control stage) all subjects consumed reconstituted low- fat milk (LFM) for 3 weeks; in stage 2 ( probiotic intervention) subjects consumed B. lactis in LFM ( group A) or B. lactis in lactose-hydrolysed LFM (group B) for 3 weeks; in stage 3 all subjects returned to non- supplemented LFM for a further 3 weeks (washout stage). The innate immune functions of two different leucocyte types ( polymorphonuclear (PMN) cells and natural killer (NK) cells) were assessed at four time points ...
Prophylactic probiotic therapy has shown beneficial effects in an experimental rat model for acute pancreatitis on the health status of the animals. Mechanisms by which probiotic therapy interferes with severity of acute pancreatitis and associated sepsis, however, are poorly understood. The aims of this study were to identify the probiotic-induced changes in the gut microbiota and to correlate these changes to disease outcome. Duodenum and ileum samples were obtained from healthy and diseased rats subjected to pancreatitis for 7 days and prophylactically treated with either a multispecies probiotic mixture or a placebo. Intestinal microbiota was characterized by terminal-restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analyses of PCR-amplified 16S rRNA gene fragments. These analyses showed that during acute pancreatitis the host-specific ileal microbiota was replaced by an acute pancreatitis-associated microbiota. This replacement was not reversed by administration of the probiotic mixture. ...
With all the positive effects of probiotics and probiotics based natural cures, it is not surprising that many people trust probiotic treatment without a second thought.

Probiotics are defined as live microorganisms that provide effective benefits to the host by improving the properties of the microbial world of the organism (Nieuwbor, Burgwel, & Classen, 2016). Different strains of probiotic organisms are in use to work through several interrelated mechanisms to promote health at the molecular level (Killian, 2012). As the usage of probiotics constantly expands and more consumers are demanding more probiotic intakes, the market is expanding with the production of probiotics. Consumers are buying probiotics thinking that probiotics are great investment to enhance their overall health. According to the National Health Statistics Reports, Americans spent billions of dollars on natural products supplements annually and that value is increasing around the globe (Nahin, Barnes, & Stussman, 2016). The purpose of the project is to examine the accuracy of probiotic product labeling by comparing the information on the label to the experimental data. The four probiotics ...

Probiotics are live microbes which, when administered in sufficient amounts, confer a health benefit to the host. According to recent clinical trials, administration of probiotics to very low birth weight infants significantly reduces overall mortality and risk of necrotizing enterocolitis, a devastating inflammatory intestinal disease. The investigators have previously demonstrated that administering probiotics to the lactating mother enhances the immunoprotective properties of breast milk. Despite the promising data, the optimal probiotic intervention is yet to be established. The mechanisms by which probiotics exert their effects remain largely unknown.. This research project is based on the notion that modulation of early microbial contact by probiotics may provide a safe and effective means to improve the health of preterm infants. In particular, the investigators hypothesize that the protective potential of probiotics may be enhanced via breast milk by administering probiotics to the ...
Many parents, especially first time parents, question at one point or another whether their infants stool is normal. If there is a sudden and noticeable change in stool frequency and consistency, such as a sudden increase in water content of the stool, it is most likely he/she is experiencing bouts of diarrhea. In every case, you need to consult the childs doctor whether this is diarrhea. Although evidence is limited, research suggests that the use of probiotics may help prevent and treat gastrointestinal troubles in young children.. What Are Probiotics? Probiotics are live microorganisms that people can ingest to build the population of good bacteria in the gut, which can improve an individuals overall health. Because most probiotics occur naturally in the human gut, probiotics are generally very well tolerated and safe. Therefore, supplementing with probiotics has been suggested to provide an infants gut with a healthy bacterial balance, which may help prevent a number of pediatric ...

By: Jeff Sossamon. VIDEO: Common Probiotics Can Reduce Stress Levels, Lessen Anxiety COLUMBIA, Mo. - Probiotics, or beneficial live bacteria that are introduced into the body, have become increasingly popular as a way to improve health and well-being. Previous studies have shown a direct correlation between gut microbes and the central nervous system. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri, using a zebrafish model, determined that a common probiotic sold in supplements and yogurt can decrease stress-related behavior and anxiety. Studying how gut bacteria affect behavior in zebrafish could lead to a better understanding of how probiotics may affect the central nervous system in humans. Their results recently were published in Scientific Reports a journal of Nature.. ...
Probiotics may trigger allergic reactions. They may also cause mild stomach upset, diarrhea, or flatulence (passing gas) and bloating for the first few days after starting to take them. However, since probiotics already exist naturally in the body, probiotic foods and supplements are generally considered to be safe. As far as effectiveness, keep in mind that unlike medications, dietary supplements do NOT need to be approved by the FDA. This means that manufacturers can sell supplements simply with claims of safety and effectiveness. Currently, researchers are undecided if probiotic supplements are effective. Some say probiotics are effective; others believe they offer no benefit whatsoever. It also remains unclear which probiotics (or combination of probiotics) work to treat certain diseases. Despite these issues, some studies have shown positive results. Still, more research is needed to confirm that probiotics are safe and effective.

But did you know that theyre equally important for the health of your pets as well?. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that work with the good bacteria already living in your pets gut. In addition to aiding with digestion, they support the bodys immune system as well as helping to protect against bad bacteria.. Leaky Gut Syndrome. Probiotics can also help with leaky gut syndrome, a gastrointestinal condition that may cause or aggravate a wide variety of symptoms in your pets, including itchy skin, a dull coat, yeast infections, unpleasant odors, and allergies.. Because probiotics work to replenish the beneficial bacteria in your pets gut, along with keeping the growth of more harmful bacteria in check, they get at the underlying cause of the symptoms (i.e. the leaky gut) rather than treating just the symptoms themselves. Probiotics are ...

Listen to this episode from Dr. Ruscio Radio on Spotify. Ive recently published a comprehensive, 43-page guide to getting the most out of your probiotic supplements on my website. Ive also developed this podcast series to highlight some of the key takeaways that you need to know about probiotic therapy. This episode is part 3 in a 3-part podcast series. Imbalances of the gut microbiota are becoming increasingly common and can cause distressing digestive symptoms and an array of seemingly unrelated symptoms and conditions. These include mood, energy, skin, joint health, metabolism, sleep, immune function, hormone balance and thyroid health. Thankfully, probiotics can help to correct these imbalances and relieve symptoms. Hundreds of research studies provide evidence for these benefits. When used correctly, probiotics are a powerful therapy with a surprisingly long list of health benefits. But for many health care consumers, the results of probiotic therapy can be suboptimal due to lack of information
One experimental treatment for autism that has had some success is the use of probiotic therapy.. So the researchers then treated the mice with Bacteroides fragilis, which has been used in probiotic therapy.. After the treatment, the mices leaky guts were fixed.. Not only that, but their behaviour also changed. They were much less likely to engage in repetitive digging behaviours. This is a good sign since repetitive behaviours are a common feature of autism in humans.. They also displayed reduced anxiety and were more likely to communicate with other mice-similarly, communication difficulties are a core feature of autism in humans.. ...

The probiotic supplements appeared to obtain no impact on the guys. It can be possible that another variety of germs may need labored much better for guys--as a result of variations of their overall body chemistry. One among the reasons I favor probiotic foods around probiotic supplements (Aside from the fact that I might instead take in than take a tablet!) is which you could expose oneself to a nice wide array of organisms, as an alternative to banking on just one. Yogurt is probably the best recognised probiotic foodstuff (and a single serving of She said yogurt daily would supply you with the such as the supplement the women inside the Nestle research were being getting) but there are lots of other customarily fermented foods to take pleasure in as well ...

Now that we have looked at how the use of antibiotics affects bacteria throughout the body, it is obvious that there is a need to maintain the good bacteria in the gut while using these drugs. This is why many people tend to opt for probiotics as a way to potentially counteract the effects of antibiotics on the gut flora. Probiotics refer to the good kind of bacteria that should ideally thrive in the gastrointestinal tract of every single person. The term really describes these bacteria that are found in certain foods. While probiotics are readily available in foods, there are also many supplements that can help a person get more good bacteria into their gut. The use o probiotics may help to improve the diversity and number of healthy bacteria that are living in a persons gut. Due to the content of probiotics, there is a common thought that using these products while on antibiotics may help to eliminate the risk of good bacteria being destroyed. It is true that probiotics might be a good idea ...
Though we might have a pretty instinctive negative reaction to the idea of bacteria, there are actually some good bacteria that have amazing health benefits-though bacteria are called probiotics. Probiotics can be added to certain foods, and once in the body they multiply and help to balance out good and bad bacteria. They can replace good bacteria that you can lose-for instance when you take an antibiotic it often kills the good as well as bad, so you should take probiotics after taking antibiotics-and they can lower the amount of bad bacteria in your body.. Probiotics essentially help with digestion and assist in moving food through your system. They can help treat conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. However, some studies show that they can also help with non-digestive issues, and can treat skin conditions like eczema, can prevent allergies and colds and can improve oral health!. While probiotics can be found in foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, miso ...

Truth be told, I had no idea that there was a difference between Prebiotics and Probiotics. I had heard of the term pro-biotics and assumed that it covered the entire range of good bacteria. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to learn that there is more to this than just what was obvious on the surface. Probiotics are good bacteria that can keep your digestive system healthy by controlling the growth of harmful bacteria. Prebiotics, on the other hand, are carbohydrates that cannot be digested by the body.. Probiotics are live bacteria commonly found in yogurt, kefir or kimchi. Probiotics are delicate and cooking food that contains them can end up killing the friendly bacteria. A prebiotic on the other hand is a plant fiber that acts as food for the probiotics, nourishing them and helping them grow. Since your body does not produce these plant fibers, you need to ingest it to help your probiotic bacteria. Found in many common fruits and vegetables (another reason why you should be eating F ...

University of Helsinki, Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Clinical Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Helsinki University Central Hospital. Lactobacilli are gram positive rods, which belong to normal oropharyngeal, gastrointestinal and urogenital flora. They are widely used in food industry and as food additives. Although their virulence is presumed to be very low, opportunistic bacteremic infections, especially in immunocompromised hosts, have been detected. In the present study, the possible effects of increasing probiotic use of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) on the occurrence of bacteremia due to lactobacilli was evaluated on population level. In Finland, 90 Lactobacillus bacteremia cases were reported to the National Infectious Disease Register maintained by National Public Health Institute, during 1995-2000. Their proportion of all bacteremia cases was on average 0.24%, corresponding to 0.3 cases/100 000 inhabitants annually. In the Helsinki University Central Hospital district ...
Whole cell and surface proteomes were analyzed together with adhesive properties of the probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM (NCFM) grown on the emerging prebiotic raffinose, exemplifying a synbiotic. Adhesion of NCFM to mucin and intestinal HT-29 cells increased three-fold after culture with raffinose versus glucose, as also visualized by scanning electron microscopy. Comparative proteomics using 2D-DIGE showed 43 unique proteins to change in relative abundance in whole cell lysates from NCFM grown on raffinose compared to glucose. Furthermore, 14 unique proteins in 18 spots of the surface subproteome underwent changes identified by differential 2DE, including elongation factor G, thermostable pullulanase, and phosphate starvation inducible stress-related protein increasing in a range of +2.1 − +4.7 fold. By contrast five known moonlighting proteins decreased in relative abundance by up to −2.4 fold. Enzymes involved in raffinose catabolism were elevated in the whole cell ...

In 2009 a study was conducted to assess the consequences of giving probiotics to patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. Unfortunately, none of the patients participating in this study noted that the symptoms related to fatigue were less present when taking probiotics, and one patient even noted that fatigue was worse when taking probiotics. However, 6 out of the 15 patients participating in this study mentioned that probiotics helped them to alleviate other symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, such as the ones related to neurocognitive functions. Researchers authoring this study have come to the conclusion that, even though more studies will be needed, probiotics can be a powerful tool to treat the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, but that the actual outcomes of probiotics consumption, especially for the symptoms related to fatigue, is greatly dependent on the individual involved.. Nevertheless, other studies have linked probiotics with an improvement of fatigue-related symptoms ...
The gut barrier plays an important role in human health. When barrier function is impaired, altered permeability and barrier dysfunction can occur, leading to inflammatory bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome or obesity. Several bacteria, including pathogens and commensals, have been found to directly or indirectly modulate intestinal barrier function. The use of probiotic strains could be an important landmark in the management of gut dysfunction with a clear impact on the general population. Previously, we found that Lactobacillus rhamnosus CNCM I-3690 can protect intestinal barrier functions in mice inflammation model. Here, we investigated its mechanism of action. Our results show that CNCM I-3690 can (i) physically maintain modulated goblet cells and the mucus layer and (ii) counteract changes in local and systemic lymphocytes. Furthermore, mice colonic transcriptome analysis revealed that CNCM I-3690 enhances the expression of genes related to healthy gut permeability: motility and absorption,
Recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) is among the most frequent functional disorders in children, consuming immense healthcare resources. Therapeutic approaches are difficult and often unsatisfying. Probiotics are live microorganisms that are perceived to benefit the host beyond their inherent basic nutrition. They have been shown to have beneficial effects on various aspects of human health, and their success in treating childhood diarrhoea and certain chronic inflammatory bowel diseases has led to increased interest in their use in patients with RAP. The rationale is based on trials suggesting a role for intestinal infection, inflammation and food allergies in the pathogenesis of the disorder and observed beneficial effects of probiotics on these pathomechanisms.1 Despite growing interest in and availability of probiotic foods and products, data from systematic trials … ...

Background: The human gut harbours a complex community of bacteria whose relationship with their host is normally mutually beneficial. Recent studies suggest a disturbance of this relationship in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and the potential to correct this using pre- and probiotics. Aims: to review the mechanisms of action of probiotics and prebiotics in IBS and to assess their performance in clinical trials. Methods: Articles relating to modes of action and randomised control trials of treatment were reviewed by searching PubMed using terms probioticprebiotic and irritable bowel. Small uncontrolled studies in IBS have been excluded. Results: Probiotics enhance gut barrier function, inhibit pathogen binding and modulate gut inflammatory response. They also reduce visceral hypersensitivity associated with both inflammation and psychological stress. Probiotics can alter colonic fermentation and stabilise the colonic microbiota. Several large randomised, placebo-controlled trials of ...
Probiotics are live microorganisms that may produce a beneficial effect in people by normalizing their intestinal flora. Typical examples are lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. Prebiotics refer to food ingredients that stimulate the growth of probiotic bacteria. Ingredients recognized as prebiotics include various oligosaccharides such as galactooligosaccharides and some food fibers. Prebiotics support probiotics and probiotics support intestinal health, and eventually the health of whole body. Probiotics and prebiotics produce the best effect when taken at the same time. In addition, it is important to take them on a continuing basis rather than taking them once. The act of taking probiotics and prebiotics together, or consuming drinks and pharmaceutical products containing probiotics and prebiotics, is called Synbiotics. ...
The use of genetically engineered probiotics to express specific enzymes has been the subject of considerable attention in poultry industry because of increased nutrient availability and reduced cost of enzyme supplementation. Phytase enzyme is commonly added to poultry feed to improve digestibility and availability of phosphorus from plant sources. To construct a probiotic with potential of phytate degradation, phytase gene (appA) from E. coli was cloned and transformed into two probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus salivarius and Lactococcus lactis. The results showed plasmid instability, unable to express the gene. The expression of appA gene in L. lactis was analyzed by detecting specific RNA and zymography assay. Phytase enzyme was isolated from cellular extracts of recombinant L. lactis, showing a 46 kDa band upon the SDS-PAGE analysis. Zymogram also confirmed the phytase activity of the 46 kDa band corresponding to the enzyme. An enzyme activity of 4.9 U mL-1 was obtained in cell extracts of L. lactis
Probiotics are live microorganisms which when consumed in sufficient amounts are beneficial for human health. Lactobacillus acidophilus is a type of beneficial bacteria that has been studied extensively, for its beneficial properties. The survival and viability of probiotic bacteria is often low under simulated conditions of gastrointestinal tract which increases the chances of potential pathogens to dominate and cause infection. Among several methods that increase the survival of probiotics, Encapsulation serves the most rational technique. Hence this investigation reports the effect of microencapsulation using sodium alginate and starch on the tolerance or survival of probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus to selected processing conditions and stimulated gastrointestinal environments. Microencapsulation provided better protection at stimulated conditions of gastric pH (1.0 and 2.0) and at high bile salt concentrations (1.0% and 2.0%). The release of the microencapsulated organisms at pH required ...

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. The intestinal barrier that separates the luminal contents, with a very high density of microorganisms, from an almost sterile milieu in the gut wall, is disrupted in critically illness. Probiotic bacteria have the ability to counteract those effects on the microflora and the gut wall. Lactobacillus plantarum 299 and 299v has been shown to adhere to the intestinal mucosa throughout the gastrointestinal tract in healthy volunteers. L pl 299v was given enterally to critically ill patients and it was verified from biopsies from the rectal mucosa that L pl 299v adheres and colonise also in critically ill patients on antibiotics. Clostridium difficile is a bacterium that causes diarrhoea and aggressive inflammation in colon and infections ...
e Aliments Utima Inc., 2177 boul. Fernand Lafontaine, Longueuil, QC J4G 2V2. Chronic Inflammation can play an important role in the development of the pathogenesis related with obesity. It has been demonstrated that some probiotics (Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium) can prevent obesity and inflammation by reducing the metabolic endotoxemia, by inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and by shaping the gut microbiota (commensal bacteria). No dairy product containing anti-inflammatory and anti-obesity probiotics are currently available in North America. The viability of probiotic is important during the manufacture and the storage of dairy product since cheese (50 g) and yogurt (100 g) must contain at least 109 colony forming unity (cfu) of the specific probiotic strain with health claims. The objective of this study was to determinate anti-inflammatory (in vitro) & anti-obesity (in vivo) effects of new probiotics and their viability during production and storage of non-fat yogurt ...
The probiotic supplements were also associated with a significantly lower rate of relapse of diarrhea of only 15%, compared to 42% in the placebo group, according to findings published in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics​​.​. Viewed from a global perspective, gastroenteritis in children is of enormous public health importance,​ wrote researchers from the University of Bari. In the 1970s, there were almost 5 million childhood deaths worldwide from gastroenteritis each year.​. The present study demonstrates that children receiving ​L. reuteri DSM 17938 on days 2 and 3 were statistically significantly more likely to be diarrhea-free and passed significantly fewer stools compared with those receiving placebo.​. Probiotics​. Probiotics are defined by FAO/WHO as Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.. The new study used Lactobacillus reuteri​ DSM 17938, which is derived from L. reuteri​ ATCC 55730. Two ...
Probiotics are nonpathogenic microorganisms mostly of human origin which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host and enable to prevent or improve some diseases. Probiotics may be a natural temporary constituent of the resident intestinal microflora, but their concentration is not sufficient for therapeutic purposes. The microbiota, the intestinal epithelium, and the mucosal immune system constitute the gastrointestinal ecosystem. All three components are essential for complete functional and developmental maturity of the system. The viability of intestinal microflora (including probiotic strains) requires the availability of nutritional substrates (prebiotics), i.e. various types of fiber and oligosaccharides. Prebiotics are cleaved by microbial enzymes to numerous substances (short-chain fatty acids, aminoacids, polyamines, growth factors, vitamins and antioxidants) indispensable for metabolic and functional activities of the intestinal mucosa. The principal ...

Assuring food safety is vital to cater to consumer demand for quality and safe produce and improve the market competitiveness of fruit and vegetable industries. In an attempt to develop safe antimicrobial treatment, this study was conducted to optimize the application of probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum and evaluate the physicochemical and sensory qualities of tomato and cucumber slices. Lb. plantarum at 109 CFU/ml was applied at 1-3% (v/w) as protective culture. Control treatments included 150 ppm chlorine and distilled water as 2-min dip. The product samples were packed in sterile resealable 50 μm-thick polyethylene bag and stored at 7-10°C for five days. Lb. plantarum inhibited coliform and aerobic bacteria and was consistently most effective at 3% on both tomato and cucumber. It also reduced yeast and mold population but only in tomato. In most cases, the antimicrobial activities of Lb. plantarum were either comparable to or better than that of chlorine. Lb. plantarum had no remarkable ...
Consuming large doses of Bacillus coagulans deemed safe for humans. CLEVELAND (April 7, 2009) - The results of a safety study to be published in the May issue of Food and Chemical Toxicology demonstrate that the probiotic strain, GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), is safe for human consumption, even in massive amounts. Many experts recognize the health benefits of probiotics, but some have stressed that probiotic strains must first demonstrate safety before recommendations can be made about their widespread use. The new study also sets the stage for the incorporation of GanedenBC30 into a wide variety of foods. Unlike many other probiotic strains, GanedenBC30 easily survives the challenges of food manufacturing, extreme temperatures, and the gastric environment.. Probiotics, also referred to as friendly bacteria, are becoming increasingly popular with consumers for several health benefits. However, safety studies do not exist for many strains of probiotics because there are no ...

In Vitro assessment of the survivability of Lactobacillus casei DN-114 001 and Lactobacillus casei Shirota, within commercialised food matrices, in the upper gastrointestinal tract
Bifidobacterium animalis is a gram-positive, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium which can be found in the large intestines of most mammals, including humans. Bifidobacterium animalis and Bifidobacterium lactis were previously described as two distinct species. Presently, both are considered B. animalis with the subspecies Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. animalis and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis. Both old names B. animalis and B. lactis are still used on product labels, as this species is frequently used as a probiotic. In most cases, which subspecies is used in the product is not clear. Several companies have attempted to trademark particular strains, and as a marketing technique, have invented scientific-sounding names for the strains. Danone (Dannon) markets the subspecies strain DN 173 010 as Bifidus Digestivum (UK), Bifidus Regularis (US and Mexico), Bifidobacterium Lactis or B.L. Regularis (Canada), DanRegularis (Brazil), Bifidus Actiregularis (Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, ...
Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a cause of significant morbidity and mortality in children. Probiotics, due to their beneficial effects on the gastrointestinal tract (e.g., improving gut barrier function, motility, facilitation of intestinal adaptation and decreasing pathogen load and inflammation) may have a therapeutic role in the management of SBS. To conduct a systematic review of the current evidence for the effects of probiotic supplementation in children with SBS, the standard Cochrane methodology for systematic reviews was used. The databases, Pubmed, Embase, ACTR, CENTRAL, and the international trial registry, and reference lists of articles were searched for randomised (RCT) or quasi-randomised controlled trials reporting on the use of probiotics in SBS. Our search revealed no RCTs on the use of probiotics in children with SBS. We found one small cross-over RCT (placebo controlled crossover clinical trial), one case control study and nine case reports on the use of probiotics in children with
Small heat shock proteins (sHsps) are ubiquitous conserved chaperone-like proteins involved in cellular proteins protection under stressful conditions. In this study, a reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) procedure was developed and used to quantify the transcript level of a small heat shock gene (shs) in the probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM, under stress conditions such as heat (45 °C and 53 °C), bile (0.3% w/v), hyperosmosis (1 M and 2.5 M NaCl), and low pH value (pH 4). The shs gene of L. acidophilus NCFM was induced by salt, high temperature and acidic stress, while repression was observed upon bile stress. Analysis of the 5 noncoding region of the hsp16 gene reveals the presence of an inverted repeat (IR) sequence (TTAGCACTC-N9-GAGTGCTAA) homologue to the controlling IR of chaperone expression (CIRCE) elements found in the upstream regulatory region of Gram-positive heat shock operons, suggesting that the hsp16 gene of L. acidophilus might be transcriptionally

INTRODUCTION. Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) is a marine finfish that has an emerging global potential for mariculture due to its extraordinary growth rate (Sampaio et al., 2011) and overall aquaculture performance (Holt et al., 2007).. Aquaculture environments can be stressful, triggering high mortality, especially during larval rearing (Avella et al., 2010). Typical intensive larviculture production protocols can cause disease by opportunistic pathogens (Hansen & Olafsen, 1999) and in order to avoid these potential diseases and antimicrobial drugs, the use of probiotics in aquaculture is suggested (Gatesoupe, 1999; Velmurugan & Rajagopal, 2009). Bacillus spp. probiotics are commonly used in animals and the beneficial roles of Bacillus spore applications in the aquaculture field are well established (Queiroz & Boyd, 1998).. Probiotics can be defined as live microbial feed supplements that can improve host intestinal microbial balance of the host and in turn its health (Gatesoupe, 1999). It has ...
Protective Effects of a Novel Probiotic Strain of Lactobacillus plantarum JSA22 from Traditional Fermented Soybean Food Against Infection by Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium;kpubs;
Commonly used probiotics are not effective in improving diarrhoea or vomiting in young children presenting to hospital emergency departments with gastroenteritis, two randomised trials have found.12. Acute gastroenteritis is a common cause of hospital admissions in young children. Current treatment options include controlling symptoms, preventing dehydration, and preventing the spread of infection to contacts. The use of probiotics in children with acute gastroenteritis has been growing after meta-analyses suggested improved outcomes-but most trials have been small and non-randomised and lacked quality control for the probiotics tested.. US researchers carried out a prospective trial in 971 children aged 3 months to 4 years (median age 1.4 years) who presented to emergency departments at 10 hospital centres. The children were randomly assigned to a five day course of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (dose … ...
Supplementation with the - commercially available beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus reuteri ATCC 6475 boosts testosterone synthesis and sperm production. Medical scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge came to this conclusion after doing experiments with mice. The probiotic also makes mice slimmer.
Hi Carol! That is a great question! To be completely honest, when I listed how to keep beneficial bacteria in balance, I did not place them in any specific order.. However, I do recommend prebiotics/probiotics (and multivitamins) for most people. Modern lifestyle often accommodates a diet full of fast food, refined carbohydrates and alcohol. Despite how hard we try, it can be nearly impossible to get EVERYTHING we need through diet alone. You have to eat a multitude of different fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and proteins to provide the body with all of the prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins and minerals the body requires. Some people are able to achieve this through diet alone…and I truly applaud them! Research tells us that the BEST way to get prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins and minerals is directly from the food source. However, when that isnt possible, supplements are an excellent way to add in what you may be missing. Thank you for your question!!. ...
