Summary: The microbial equilibrium of the intestinal flora reflects, and also is responsible for, a harmonious digestive function, and thus a satisfactory state of health of the individual. One attempts to obtain this equilibrium by dosing the animal with certain microbial strains, called probiotics. In order to explain the value of probiotics and to define the rules governing their administration, the author points out that intestinal colonisation is established mostly during the early… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

Evaluation of Technological and Probiotic Abilities of Local Lactic Acid Bacteria
TLDR
This review presents a basic overview of the evaluation of technological and probiotic abilities of lactic acid bacteria strains and the determination of their probiotic properties. Expand
Probiotics in animal production: A review
TLDR
Improvements in productive performance of all animal species fed with probiotics were mostly due to the fact that probiotics promoted the metabolic processes of digestion and nutrient utilization. Expand
Probiotics, vaccines and other interventions for pathogen control in animals
TLDR
This chapter discusses both of these general strategies as well as some other specific strategies being developed or utilized in the food animal industry. Expand
Role of probiotics in rumen fermentation and animal performance: A review
TLDR
The mode of actions and the effects of feeding probiotics on different aspects of health and productivity of ruminant animals are summarized. Expand
Probiotics for ruminants
TLDR
The digestive anatomy and physiology of ruminants is markedly different to that of non-ruminant animals, including pigs and man, and the omasum, which is primarily to absorb both water and soluble nutrients. Expand
REVIEWS ON PROBIOTICS – IT’S USES AND APPLICATIONS
Probiotics are commonly defined as mono or mixed cultures of live microbes that when applied to an animal or human, posses a beneficial effect on the health of host possibly by improving the balanceExpand
Probiotics for pigs
Although the use of the term ‘probiotic’ to describe a feed supplement is recent (Parker, 1974), there are a few earlier reports presenting the concept of using living microbes and substances toExpand
Recent pre-harvest supplementation strategies to reduce carriage and shedding of zoonotic enteric bacterial pathogens in food animals
TLDR
A parallel and simultaneous application of one or more preslaughter strategies has the potential to synergistically reduce the incidence of human food-borne illnesses by erecting multiple hurdles, thus preventing entry of pathogens into the food chain. Expand
Influence of the probiotic bacterial strain, Bacillus cereus var. toyoi, on the development of selected microbial groups adhering to intestinal mucosal tissues of piglets.
TLDR
There are strong indications that the early uptake of already modified microbial populations from faeces of the sow aids in the establishment of similar microbial populations in the piglet. Expand
Preliminary assays for the development of a probiotic for goats.
TLDR
The results of hydrophobic properties showed that the strains who were able to agglutinate yeasts presented similar hydrophobia characteristics as hexadecane, xylene and toluene, but high specificity was not related to a high hydrophobicity. Expand

Analysis of the intestinal microflora of young hares before weaning shows the predominance of strictly anaerobic bacteria, and a correlation between early mortality at 8 days and the simultaneous presence of Welchia Perfringens, Clostridium sp. Expand

TLDR
Dietary manipulation was shown to influence xylose malabsorption, diarrhoea and bacterial proliferation after weaning, and Immunogenicity of the weaning diet was critical for the development of the disease. Expand
