AIMS To use antioxidative activity and antagonistic properties of lactobacilli against selected pathogens and members of the normal microflora as a basis for screening probiotic candidates. METHODS AND RESULTS Antagonistic activity of lactobacilli against target bacteria in both microaerobic and anaerobic environments was tested. Production of antagonistic metabolites (ethanol, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), acetic, lactic and succinic acid) by lactobacilli as well as their total antioxidative… CONTINUE READING
