In the present study, probiotic Dahi (LaBb Dahi) containing Lactobacillus acidophilus LaVK2 and Bifidobacterium bifidum BbVK3 was selected as a probiotic therapy to investigate its protective effect on dextran sodium sulfate (DSS)-induced ulcerative colitis model in mice that mimics the picture in human. LaBb Dahi was prepared by co-culturing Dahi bacteria(More)
