Enhanced resistance to bacterial infections in mice by oral administration of an active egg white product.

Abstract

We found that the oral administration of active egg white product (AEWP) enhances host resistance to infections. The prophylactic administration of AEWP enhanced nonspecific resistance in mice to systemic infection with E. coli. Moreover, the therapeutic administration of AEWP was effective against S. aureus infection in mice.
