INTRODUCTION Many pathogenic bacterial species have the ability to biofilm formation. In our study we determined the influence of Lactobacillus casei on biofilm formation by enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) strains obtained from irritable bowel syndrome patients. METHODS The ability of EAEC isolates to biofilm formation was assessed in the presence of various concentrations of the probiotic L. casei strain in an a semi- quantitative microtitre plate assays under culture conditions… CONTINUE READING
