Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains from infant feces were screened for anti-Helicobacter pylori use. In the beginning, we selected the strains based on their capability to adhere to the human intestinal epithelial cell (Int-407), colonial enterocyte-like Caco-2 cell, human cervical epithelioid carcinoma cell (HeLa), and human gastric carcinoma cell (TSGH 9201). Then, acid and bile salt tolerance of these LAB strains was evaluated. In addition, the ability of these LAB strains to inhibit the… CONTINUE READING
