AIM To investigate the ability of Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) to modulate inflammatory reaction in human intestinal cell lines (Caco-2, HT-29 and HCT116). Different strains of LAB isolated from new born infants and fermented milk, together with the strains obtained from culture collections were tested. METHODS LABs were treated with human intestinal cell lines. ELISA was used to detect IL-8 and TGF-beta protein secretion. Cytokines and Toll like receptors (TLRs) gene expression were assessed… CONTINUE READING
