The present study involved isolation and characterization of Bifidobacterium from stool of healthy persons and infants. A total of 66 isolates has been collected randomly from healthy persons and infants in Al-Najaf Al-Ashraf city during the period 1/2012-4/2012. Identification of isolates has been carried out depending on their characters on selective media, biochemical tests and polymerase chain reaction technique (PCR). Our results showed that all 66 isolates belong to Bifidobacterium spp…

Study the Pathogenesis of Salmonella hadar which Isolated from Goats in Mice

A systematic study bases on the three aspects which was bacteriological, pathological, and immunological aspects was done experimentally by Salmonella hadar on (BALB/c) mice to conclude that S. hadar has the ability to invade the most internal organs but in varying degree between the mice infected by infectious dose and these infected by LD50.

Screening of Bifidobacterium strains isolated from human faeces for antagonistic activities against potentially bacterial pathogens.

As probiotic bacteria, strains belonging to the genus Bifidobacterium colonise the gastro-intestinal tract of humans and animals at the time of birth, and they are found in young as well as in adult

Isolation and characterization of strains of bifidobacteria with probiotic proprieties in vitro.

Eleven strains of bifidobacteria isolated produced antimicrobial compounds that were active against pathogenic bacteria especially Listeria monocytogenes strains and remained stable after a heat-treatment at 100°C for 5 min, but decreased after an enzymatic treatment with pronase-E and proteinase-K.

Protective effect of bifidus milk on the experimental infection with Salmonella enteritidis subsp. typhimurium in conventional and gnotobiotic mice

The ability of Bifidobacterium bifidum from a commercial bifidus milk to antagonize Salmonella enteritidis subsp. typhimurium in vivo, and to reduce the pathological consequences for the host, was

Molecular identification of bifidobacteria from infant faeces

The isolation and identification of bifidobacterial species from infant faeces by molecular methods using 16S rDNA targeted genus and species specific mPCR primers is discussed.

Dietary Bifidobacterium lactis (HN019) Enhances Resistance to Oral Salmonella typhimurium Infection in Mice

Dietary supplementation with B. lactis can provide a significant degree of protection against Salmonella infection by enhancing various parameters of immune function that are relevant to the immunological control of salmonellosis, according to a newly identified probiotic lactic acid bacterial strain.

Screening for the Immunopotentiating Activity of Food Microorganisms and Enhancement of the Immune Response by Bifidobacterium adolescentis M101-4

Results suggest that the activation with B. adolescentis M101-4 was not due to any secondary stimulation of lymphocytes primed with bacteria in the gut or environment, but to direct or indirect activity toward B cells that was intrinsic to the strain.

The place of probiotics in human intestinal infections.

A mixture containing galactooligosaccharide, produced by the enzymic activity of Bifidobacterium bifidum, reduces Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium infection in mice.

Results indicate that Bimuno significantly reduced the colonization and pathology associated with S. Typhimurium infection in a murine model system, possibly by reducing the invasion of the pathogen into host cells.
