In vitro simulation of the gastrointestinal tract environment and its interaction with probiotic lactobacilli
The harshest conditions of the human gastrointestinal tract were simulated in order to study probiotic bacteria in their intended environment. Eight Lactobacillus strains were cultivated in MRS broth

Effect of Simulated Gastrointestinal Tract Conditions on Survivability of Probiotic Bacteria Present in Commercial Preparations
Probiotics are recommended, among others, in the diet of children who are under antibiotic therapy, or that suffer from food allergies or travel diarrhea, etc. In the case of toddlers taking
Potential probiotic properties of lactic acid bacteria isolated from the intestinal mucosa of healthy piglets
TLDR
This work showed that the E. faecium and L. plantarum WEI-51 were found to have the probiotic properties required for use as potential probiotics in animal feed supplements.

Single bioreactor gastrointestinal tract simulator for study of survival of probiotic bacteria
TLDR
The study demonstrated that GITS can be successfully used for evaluation of viability of Probiotic bacteria and functionality of probiotic food and demonstrated the influence of the food matrix on the viability of bacteria.
Survival ofLactobacillus species (strain GG) in human gastrointestinal tract
TLDR
It is demonstrated that lactobacillus GG can survive and temporarily colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and can affect the metabolic activity of the resident microflora.
Survival of lactic acid bacteria in a dynamic model of the stomach and small intestine: validation and the effects of bile.
TLDR
A dynamic model of the stomach and small intestine to quantify the survival of lactic acid bacteria and to assess the influence of gastrointestinal secretions demonstrates the differences among bacterial species in their sensitivity to gastric and intestinal secretions.

TLDR
Viability of probiotic bacteria can be improved by appropriate selection of acid and bile resistant strains, use of oxygen impermeable containers, two-step fermentation, micro-encapsulation, stress adaptation, incorporation of micronutrients and by sonication of yogurt bacteria.
Development and application of an in vitro methodology to determine the transit tolerance of potentially probiotic Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species in the upper human gastrointestinal tract
TLDR
It is concluded that, whereas the majority of bile salts‐resistant lactobacilli and bifidobacteria may be intrinsically sensitive to gastric transit, they are intrinsically resistant to small intestinal transit.
Influence of a synbiotic mixture consisting of Lactobacillus acidophilus 74-2 and a fructooligosaccharide preparation on the microbial ecology sustained in a simulation of the human intestinal microbial ecosystem (SHIME reactor)
TLDR
Interestingly, the addition of L. acidophilus 74-2 with fructooligosaccharide gave rise to an increase of bifidobacteria, and major positive changes occurred in the production of volatile fatty acids: a strong upward trend was observed especially in the case of butyric acid and propionic acid.

TLDR
It is shown that the addition of FG altered the composition of gut bacteria by stimulating the growth of bifidobacteria and Eubacterium rectale and correlated with increased butyrate production.
