Lactobacillus strain ecology and persistence within broiler chickens fed different diets: Identification of persistent strains

Stephenson, David; Moore, Robert J; Allison, Gwen


Lactobacilli are autochthonous residents in the chicken gastrointestinal tract, where they may potentially be used as probiotics, competitive exclusion agents, or delivery vehicles. The aim of this study was to use an in vivo model to investigate the effect of diet and competing lactic acid bacteria on the colonization of inoculated Lactobacillus strains, with the goal of identifying strains which can consistently colonize or persist for an extended period of several weeks.
