The effect of the enterocin A-producing EK strain of Enterococcus faecium on Salmonella dusseldorf SA31 was tested in gnotobiotic Japanese quails. Sixteen 3-day-old gnotobiotic Japanese quails, hatched from disinfected eggs placed in sterile boxes, were divided into two groups of 8 birds: a control group, which was inoculated orally with the SA31 strain (1×107 CFU/ml), and the experimental group, which was inoculated orally with 200 μl of E. faecium (1×109 CFU/ml), 16 h before infection with… CONTINUE READING
