The effect of lactoferrin (Lf) on bacterial growth was tested by measuring conductance changes in the cultivation media by using a Malthus-AT system and was compared with the magnitude of 125I-labeled Lf binding in 15 clinical isolates of Escherichia coli. The binding property was inversely related to the change in bacterial metabolic rate (r = 0.91) and was directly related to the degree of bacteriostasis (r = 0.79). The magnitude of Lf-bacterium interaction showed no correlation with the MIC… CONTINUE READING
