In the present work we evaluated the effects of probiotic strains administration in pigs. On the 35th day of age, 30 pigs were distributed into 2 groups: the non-treated control group (initial average BW: 8.3+/-0.6 kg) and a probiotic supplemented fed group (initial average BW: 8.7+/-0.4 kg). Each experimental group was fed ad libitum on a commercial diet with free access to tap water for 35 days. A mixed probiotic culture (10(8) CFU/ml) was orally delivered, every day, to the animals of the… Expand
Effects of dietary probiotics on growth performance, faecal microbiota and serum profiles in weaned piglets
TLDR
It is suggested that dietary probiotics improved growth performance and enhanced immune responses at the early stage of the post-weaning period in piglets. Expand
Fatty acid profile of pig meat after probiotic administration.
TLDR
Probiotic administration could be useful to modify and improve the fatty acid profile of pig meat after probiotic administration. Expand
Effect of a dietary probiotic blend on performance, blood characteristics, meat quality and faecal microbial shedding in growing-finishing pigs
TLDR
Feeding probiotic blend enhanced growth performance and meat quality in growing-finishing pigs, and also decreased faecal NH3-N and butyric acid levels resulting in a viable approach to reduce animal excreta pollution. Expand
Probiotics and Probiotic Metabolic Product Improved Intestinal Function and Ameliorated LPS-Induced Injury in Rats
TLDR
Administration of probiotic strains B. licheniformis or B. subtilis improved intestinal function, ameliorated the inflammation response, and modulated microflora after LPS-induced acute inflammation in rats. Expand
Effect of probiotics and xylo-oligosaccharide supplementation on nutrient digestibility, intestinal health and noxious gas emission in weanling pigs
TLDR
Inclusion of XOS at 200 mg/kg or probiotics at 500mg/kg in diets containing no antibiotics significantly improved the growth performance of weanling pigs and no effects on serum profiles were observed among treatments. Expand
Effects of Lactobacillus brevis preparation on growth performance, fecal microflora and serum profile in weaned pigs
TLDR
The results showed that L. brevis ZLB004 had beneficial effects on the improvement of intestinal microflora balance, immunity, and growth performance of weaned pigs. Expand
The Potential Use of Probiotics to Improve Animal Health, Efficiency, and Meat Quality: A Review
TLDR
This review discusses the effect of probiotics on animal growth and development, immune response, and productivity, and identifies the optimum dose, administration time, delivery method, and mechanism of action for each strain/host. Expand
Use of Lactobacillus plantarum (strains 22F and 25F) and Pediococcus acidilactici (strain 72N) as replacements for antibiotic-growth promotants in pigs
TLDR
The results demonstrated the feasibility of using these strains as a substitute for antibiotics and the practicality of the microencapsulation protocol for use in swine farms. Expand
Lactic acid bacteria isolated from young calves--characterization and potential as probiotics.
TLDR
The results allow going further in the establishment of criteria to select strains to be included in a multi-strain-probiotic-product to be further assayed in animals, and some grew at very low pH and high bile concentrations. Expand
The Use of Lactic Acid Bacteria as a Probiotic in Swine Diets
TLDR
LAB can adjust the intestinal environment, inhibit or kill pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract and improve the microbial balance in the intestine, as well as regulate intestinal mucosal immunity and maintain intestinal barrier function, thereby benefiting the health of pigs. Expand

Selection of a potential probiotic Lactobacillus strain and subsequent in vivo studies
TLDR
This study showed that strain BSA 131 enhanced liveweight gains and feed conversion rates in piglets and showed a significant increase in lactobacilli cell counts and decreases in enterobacterial numbers in the fecal samples. Expand
Effects of Antibiotics and Probiotics on Suckling Pig and Weaned Pig Performance
Effects of various antibiotics or a probiotic on growth and death loss in suckling pigs and the effect of a probiotic on nursery pig performance were determined. In Experiment 1, suckling pigsExpand
The effect of probiotic LSP 122 on the control of post-weaning diarrhoea syndrome of piglets.
TLDR
It was concluded that the high dosage schedule of LSP 122, providing 10(7)viable spores of B. licheniformis per g of feed, is a very useful agent for the control of PWDS due to ETEC. Expand
Effects of a bovine colostrum-supplemented diet on some gut parameters in weaned piglets.
TLDR
A diet supplemented with colostrum induced, although not always significantly, variations of gut parameters, suggesting that globally, colostrums may limit weaning-induced gut structural and microbial alterations. Expand

TLDR
Results suggest that the daily oral supplementation of EcF from birth to weaning reduces the portion of piglets suffering from diarrhoea, and this may improve performance, as the higher DWG indicates. Expand
Effect of administration of bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria to newborn calves and piglets.
TLDR
The probiotics tested here had useful effects, including improved BW gain, feed conversion, and fecal condition of both newborn calves and piglets. Expand
Influence of a probiotic Enterococcus faecium strain on development of the immune system of sows and piglets.
TLDR
A remarkable decline in the frequency of beta-haemolytic and O141 serovars of Escherichia coli was observed in the intestinal contents of probiotic piglets, suggesting an explanation for the reduction in cytotoxic T-cell populations. Expand
Effect of the administration of a fermented milk containing Lactobacillus casei DN-114001 on intestinal microbiota and gut associated immune cells of nursing mice and after weaning until immune maturity
TLDR
The beneficial effect of the administration of a PFM not only to the mothers during the suckling period but also to their offspring after weaning and until adulthood, which positively improved the intestinal microbiota that are related with a modulation of the gut immune response. Expand

TLDR
Lysine supplementation indicated lysine as limiting amino acid in the basal diet, but did not influence the microbial counts in faeces and small intestine respectively. Expand

TLDR
These are all areas where the gut flora can be altered for the worse and where, by the administration of probiotics, the natural balance of the gut microflora can be restored and the animal returned to its normal nutrition, growth and health status. Expand
