To determine whether the size of the intestinal bifidobacterial population can influence the immune response to poliovirus vaccination in infants, we set up a randomized, placebo-controlled trial. From birth to 4 mo, infants were given a fermented infant formula (FIF) or a standard formula (placebo). Bifidobacteria were quantified monthly in infant stools.(More)
The vernacular name 'fluorescent Pseudomonas group 97-514' was coined for a group of 43 strains isolated from two French natural mineral waters. All these strains were gram-negative, rod-shaped and motile by means of a single polar flagellum. They produced fluorescent pigment (pyoverdin) on King B medium, catalase and cytochrome oxidase. They were capable(More)
The vernacular name 'fluorescent Pseudomonas group 97-391' was coined for a group of 11 strains isolated from two French natural mineral waters. All these strains were Gram-negative, rod-shaped and motile by means of a single polar flagellum. They produced fluorescent pigment (pyoverdin) on King B medium, catalase and cytochrome oxidase. They were not able(More)
Bacteroides fragilis and clostridia are normally present in the human colon but they may exert pathogenic effects when the homeostasis is upset following various forms of stress. One approach to preventing gastrointestinal disorders is to use bifidobacteria fermented milk. It has been suggested that the efficacy of such a product is related to abiotic(More)
AIMS To investigate the effects of whey retentate from Bifidobacteria fermented milk. METHODS AND RESULTS The simulator of the human intestinal microbial ecosystem (SHIME) was used. The composition of the microbiota and its metabolic activities were analysed. Changes in the microbial composition became apparent within 15 days of the treatment in the(More)
Cell-free whey obtained from milk fermented with Bifidobacterium breve C50 (Bb C50) has been shown to modify the intestinal flora in humans and mice. Previous work showed that no antibiotic-like or barrier effect due to overgrowing bifidobacteria was implied in the microbial modifications. The present study was focused on characterizing the compounds and(More)
The efficiency and safety of use of Bifidobacterium breve C50 (BbC50), a potential probiotic, was assessed as regards intestinal microbial colonisation and bacterial translocation. A suspension of BbC50, containing 1-5 to 107-108 live bacteria, was fed to C3H/HeJ mice. The passage of live BbC50 was not demonstrated by culture either in the intestine or(More)
