The effect of yoghurt, heat-treated fermented milk, milk and lactose solution intake on plasmid transfer and establishment of the resulting transconjugants in the digestive tract of mice colonised with human faecal flora were examined. Yoghurt lowered the population level of transconjugants more efficiently than heat-treated fermented milk (−2 log and −1 log respectively) and indicated a beneficial effect of viable bacteria. On the other hand consumption of milk drastically inhibited the… Expand
