article description
Probiotic microorganisms have attracted a growing interest for prevention and therapy of gastrointestinal disorders. Many probiotic strains have been shown to inhibit growth and metabolic activity of enteropathogenic bacteria as well as their adhesion and invasion to intestinal cells. In the present study, we evaluated the interference of bacteria-free supernatants (BFS) of cultures belonging to sixteen strains of and , with invasion of enteroinvasive (EIEC) strain, using human colonic adenocarcinoma cell lines, T84 and Caco2 cells. E.coli invasion.
