Title:Coaggregation of Lactobacilli with Campylobacter jejuni
Author(s):Romero, Michael
campylobacter jejuni
Abstract:According to research, a probiotic that can coaggregate with a pathogen effectively can prevent its adhesion to intestinal epithelial cells. Therefore, better comprehension of how probiotic bacteria coaggregate with C. jejuni could prevent or reduce the colonization and infection of livestock and humans. Although there are studies that explain how C. jejuni colonizes the epithelial cells of livestock and humans, there is still no clear method to reduce colonization. In this study, the coaggregative abilities between eighteen different potential probiotic strains of Lactobacillus with C. jejuni F38011 and C. jejuni 11168 were tested. The results from this study showed that the coaggregative abilities of the Lactobacillus strains were strain dependent and that Lactobacillus rhamnosus ATCC 9595 had the strongest coaggregative ability with C. jejuni. The findings of this research could lead to further research regarding prevention of C. jejuni colonization within livestock and humans with the use of probiotics.
