Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are present in the intestine of most animals. The beneficial role played by these microorganisms in the humans and other animals, including the effect on the immune system, has been extensively reported. They are present in many foods and are frequently used as probiotics to improve some biological functions in the host. The activation of the systemic and secretory immune response by LAB requires many complex interactions among the different constituents of the… Expand
Immunomodulatory effects of Lactobacillus casei Shirota
TLDR
This review will focus on Lactobacillus casei Shirota, the probiotic used in the commercially available Yakult probiotic drink, and its effects on gut mucosal function. Expand
Chapter 16 The influence of the lactic acid bacteria and other resident microflora on the immune system of the growing animal1
TLDR
The influence of the lactic acid bacteria and other resident microflora on the immune system of the growing animal is discussed, which is an important protective barrier against intestinal infections by bacteria, fungi and viruses. Expand
Role of Intestinal Epithelial Cells in Immune Effects Mediated by Gram-Positive Probiotic Bacteria: Involvement of Toll-Like Receptors
TLDR
The small intestine is the place where a major distinction would occur between probiotic LAB and pathogens, cutting across the line that separates IL-6 necessary for B-cell differentiation, from inflammatory levels of IL- 6 for pathogens. Expand
Immunomodulatory effects of Lactobacillus casei Shirota
TLDR
The effects of lactic acid bacteria and more specifically Lactobacillus casei Shirota, the probiotic used in the commercially available Yakult probiotic drink, are reviewed. Expand
Capacity of lactic acid bacteria in immunity enhancement and cancer prevention
TLDR
A supplement of highly active lactic acid bacteria strains provided significant potential to enhance host’s immunity, offering prevention from many diseases including some cancers. Expand
Lactic acid bacteria in the prevention of pneumococcal respiratory infection: future opportunities and challenges.
TLDR
Research from the last decade demonstrates that LAB represent a promising resource for the development of prevention strategies against respiratory infections that could be effective tools for medical application. Expand
Proposed Model: Mechanisms of Immunomodulation Induced by Probiotic Bacteria
TLDR
The healthy host is able to elicit a good mucosal immune response against luminal antigens and to maintain a “physiological state of inflammation” in the gut, but it is also capable of responding to invading commensal organisms or pathogens. Expand
Probiotic bacteria cell walls stimulate the activity of the intestinal epithelial cells and macrophage functionality.
TLDR
Findings about the capacity of the cell walls from probiotic bacteria to stimulate key cells, such as IECs and macrophages, and to improve the functioning of the immune system, suggest that those structures could be applied as a new oral adjuvant. Expand
Immunomodulatory Potentials of Probiotics: A Review
In recent years, research has focused on natural mechanisms for the management, treatment, and curing of human infections and diseases. One of such natural methods is the application of probiotics,Expand

Gut mucosal immunostimulation by lactic acid bacteria.
TLDR
The different behaviours observed among them on the gut mucosalimmune response, specially those that induce inflammatory immune response, show that not all the LAB can be used as oral adjuvant and that the beneficial effect of them can not generalized to genous or specie. Expand
Study of the possible mechanisms involved in the mucosal immune system activation by lactic acid bacteria.
TLDR
The induction of a mucosal immune response is not easy due to the development of oral tolerance, but under some conditions, bacteria can activate this immune system and certain lactic acid bacteria are able to induce specific secretory immunity and others will enhance the gut inflammatory immune response. Expand
Intestinal pathway of internalisation of lactic acid bacteria and gut mucosal immunostimulation.
TLDR
The results suggest that the different effects of LAB on the mucosal immunostimulation, are related to the different pathways of gut internalisation used to take contact with the immune cells associated with the lamina propria intestinal. Expand
Influence of the Oral Administration of Lactic Acid Bacteria on Iga Producing Cells Associated to Bronchus
TLDR
The increment induced by some LAB in the number of IgA+ cells on the mucosa surface of the lower respiratory tract may be very important to prevent bronchus diseases. Expand
Immune system stimulation by probiotics.
TLDR
The results showed that Lactobacillus casei could prevent enteric infections and stimulate secretory IgA in malnourished animals, but could produce bacteria translocation and Yogurt could inhibit the growth of intestinal carcinoma through increased activity of IgA, T cells, and macrophages. Expand
Probiotics and the immune state
TLDR
The role played by lactic acid bacteria in various biological functions of the host has been extensively reported and great emphasis has been laid on the antitumour activity exerted by yoghurt and by milks fermented with Lactobacillus acidophilus. Expand
Probiotics 3 : immunomodulation by the gut microflora and probiotics
TLDR
This work has shown that the role of resident intestinal microflora in the development and functions of the intestinal-associated lymphoid tissue and the immune response of the immunosuppressed host are influenced by each other. Expand
Immunomodulation of human blood cells following the ingestion of lactic acid bacteria.
TLDR
Nonspecific, anti-infective mechanisms of defense can be enhanced by the ingestion of specific lactic acid bacteria strains that can be used as nutritional supplements to improve the immune function of particular age groups, i.e., the neonate or the elderly. Expand
The Oral Administration of Lactic Acid Bacteria Increase the Mucosal Intestinal Immunity in Response to Enteropathogens.
TLDR
Results show that only L. casei increases the IgA production secreted to the intestinal lumen, providing adequate defenses at mucosal surfaces, and suggest that this microorganism could be used as oral adjuvant especially to prevent enteric infections. Expand

Lactobacilli, often used as effectors of host functions, could play an important role in maintaining human health by controlling other intestinal microorganisms capable of producing harmful effects.Expand
