Impact of Neonatal Antibiotic Treatment on the Biodiversity of the Murine Intestinal Lactobacillus Community

Abstract

In this study, we investigated the impact of neonatal amoxicillin treatment on the development of the murine intestinal Lactobacillus community. Suckling BALB/c mice received a daily intragastric gavage of amoxicillin or saline from postnatal day 7 (PND 7) to PND 20.
