Effect of Lactobacillus-Based Probiotic in the Prevention and Complex Therapy of Brucellosis
Advances in Animal and Veterinary Sciences
| The aim of the current study is to evaluate the effect of the lactobacillus-based probiotic with antagonistic activity against various species of brucellae on laboratory animals in the prevention and complex therapy of brucellosis. Our results revealed that the usage of probiotics for preventative and therapeutic purposes reduced the infection index and the bacterial load in the internal organs of outbred nonlinear white mice infected with a highly virulent strain Brucella melitensis 16M.
... , the index of infection of internal organs in animals that received the probiotic before infection for 5 days decreased compared to the control by 25%, in animals that received the probiotic after infection for 20 days -by 58.75%. The greatest therapeutic effect was revealed with the combined use of a probiotic with the rifampicin antibiotic for 10 days. In this group of animals, no animals infected with brucellae were found after the end of treatment. In the group of animals that took only an antibiotic for treatment, the infection index was 1.3%.
