Novel bioactive from Lactobacillus brevis DSM17250 to stimulate the growth of Staphylococcus epidermidis: a pilot study
Commensal skin microbiota plays an important role in both influencing the immune response of the skin and acting as a barrier against colonisation of potentially pathogenic microorganisms and overgrowth of opportunistic pathogens. Staphylococcus epidermidis is a key constituent of the normal microbiota on human skin. It balances the inflammatory response after skin injury and produces antimicrobial molecules that selectively inhibit skin pathogens. C. Holz,
Evidence that what we eat and how we live affects our health is becoming greater.The bacteria, who have been colonising our skin and gut since our very beginning, seem to play an important role as sensors for environmental triggers of chronic diseases of civilisation. Since it became clear that restoring the balance of the microbiome cures 90% of people with Clostridium dificile infections, food
“Bioeconomy can no longer be seen only as the replacement for fossil raw materials. It is based on the combination of renewable resources and innovation to drive resource efficiency and Green Growth.” To say this – in this interview with Renewable Matter – is Christine Lang, chairwoman of the German Bioeconomy Council. With Lang we talk about the bioeconomy in Germany, the Federal strategy,
Significant Reduction in Helicobacter pylori Load in Humans with Non-viable Lactobacillus reuteri DSM17648: A Pilot Study.
Reducing the amount of Helicobacter pylori in the stomach by selective bacterial–bacterial cell interaction was sought as an effective and novel method for combating the stomach pathogen. Lactobacillus reuteri DSM17648 was identified as a highly specific binding antagonist to H. pylori among more than 700 wild-type strains of Lactobacillus species. C. Holz, A. Busjahn, H. Mehling, S.
